  1. Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 1)
    I just bought a 2000 XLE with 209k miles on it for $2,700 from the original owner, who was so obsessive he took the thing to the dealer if so much as a bulb burned out. He even put his own carpet in the interior over the original carpet, which he took off the day he sold it to me. The vehicle...

    I have 206K miles on unheated, power leather seats in a 2004 XLE. The driver side cushion is cracking at the outside edge. Can the seat cushions be swapped from passenger side to driver side?

    Has anyone swapped out an le front bumper cover for an se bumper cover? I really like the look of the bigger fog lights on the se, but I can't find any specs online as far as them having the same brackets as the 2011. I found a pretty cheap 2017 se front bumper cover off a wrecked sienna, and...

    This is my adventure to LED interior lights swap. Here's a step by step with pics on how I removed the plastic panels and bulbs. These were the tools used 1) Needle Nose Pliers. Double sided tape put on to help remove the bulbs. 2) Plastic Prying Tools (One from Frys Electronics or Amazon for...

    I just bought a new 2015 XLE Sienna (8-passenger) . Middle row seats are the standard reclining bucket seats, but I really like the "foot-rest" option offered on the Limited. Are the seats interchangeable? Do they have the same configuration for installation, so I can just swap them out? Or...

    Here’s a guide on how to swap and reprogram your instrument cluster from the standard printed gauges in the 2004-2006 Sienna, and 2007-2010 Sienna CE to the optitron backlit gauges in 2007-2010 LE & up Sienna trims. Many thanks to user EZName for doing the swap, providing the photos and...

    I wanted to open this up for others that may have thought about doing this, Im in the preliminary stages of gathering all the necessary parts to do this swap, found someone parting out a 2007 sienna xle that has all the parts I need excluding the dash and key as it was a theft recovery. found a...

    I know this is possible because I did it before but I can't find it. I have a 2008 Sienna XLE Limited with Nav. By default, the map automatically displays soon after I choose a radio station. There was a way to keep the radio screen displayed and if I wanted to display the map, I just pressed...

    Swap my 2011 Toyota Sienna LE from 8 seats to 7 seats. I have moved the passenger middle seat track towards driver side to be able to fit 7seats and remove the 8 seats 2nd raw. I had to remove the tank in order to be able to install the seat track onto 7 seat location. The floor holes are made...

    I really hate the halogen DRL on the 2011+ Siennas and just seen the 2015 headlights http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/minivans-vans/1407_2015_toyota_sienna_first_look/photo_18.html that when it comes out, I want to swap out my entire headlight housing and install the 2015 with LED. They look...

    For those that completed the swap, did you get the under engine cover? Seen a few pics and the gap is quite large, but the part alone ranges from $150-250. Ouch! Sourcing parts and trying to manage the budget, so any tips or advise is appreciated. Thanks!

    Hello, I fried my original ECU by making a mistake during a head unit install detailed in another post. I purchased a working ECU from the same exact van, a 2009 Sienna LE, and all numbers on both EUCs match. Once I installed the new ECU, I realized it needed to be programmed since the engine...

    I searched this forum and google and couldn't find any clear instructions on how to change the headlight assembly on the 3rd gen Siennas. The best I found was advice to be careful of "the tabs" when removing the headlight assembly, although it seemed to suggest that it was an easy thing to do...

    Hi, I was wondering of it would be possible to swap in a 2GR-FE (from newer Sienna, Camry, etc.) into the Gen 1 engine bay, and if so what parts do I need? I want to do this because I want more power and I can get an engine for cheaper than the bolt ons required to get the same power on the...

    Has anyone replaced their 1MZ-FE from a 98 Sienna with a JDM version of the 1MZ-FE ( non VVTi just like mine)? The dealer tried to find comparable mileage motors from Sienna's but everything they found was well over 200,000 km. My Sienna has 140,000 km and I don't want a motor with higher...

    So I'm wondering if it would be possible to swap in some Camry rear suspension components so that I could fit some coilovers and an adjustable sway bar? Also, could I convert the rear brakes to Camry disc brakes? Both the Sienna and Camry ride on the XV platform (I think). Has anybody done this...

    Hi, I have a friend with a 98 Sienna with 150k and a dead transmission. The shop offered him $500 for it, and I'm considering buying it from him. I have a couple of questions though. With the high miles on the vehicle, do you think an auto recycler tranny would be fine, or should I shell...
