2006 Sienna XLE with 115k. Driver-side sliding door has recently started making creaking noises when going over uneven surfaces such as entering a driveway or over very small bumps. There was a TSB back in 2010 (T-SB-0094-10 March 16, 2010) to address Sliding Door Rattle While Driving.

It states: Some Sienna vehicles may exhibit a growling, ticking, clunking, or rattling noise near or around the left and/or right-hand sliding door when driving on rough road surfaces.
Noise generated by contact between the striker plate and lock assembly on 2004 – 2006 model year Sienna vehicles has been reduced by adding a resin coating to the sliding door striker plate and sliding door lock assembly. The updated part applies to both manual and power sliding doors. Noise generated by contact between the male and female slide door stoppers on 2004 – 2010 model year Sienna vehicles has been reduced by redesigning the male stopper (foam type material was added to the male stopper). The updated part applies to both manual and power sliding doors.

Does anyone have experience adding ‘a resin coating’ to the door striker and door lock assembly, or any experience installing the updated male and female stoppers? Apparently, the updated male stopper includes some foam material. Wondering if it really is as simple as unscrewing male stopper and replacing it with an updated stopper.

This problem just began a couple of days ago on my 2010 driver side slider. When going over bumps on 45mph roads or sharp left for say a turn, it groans and creaks. Didn't do that before and haven't used the door much at all. Hard to say what has changed. Any luck with yours?

It is strange how this seems to come on quickly with no specific cause. I saw someone simply wrapped the squarish metal bracket with duct tape (the bracket is attached to car frame... the door slides into it). I tried the duct tape solution and it solved the issue! Not sure how long before the tape gets destroyed but for now it was a 10-cent fix!

This is the updated door stop with the foam insert to prevent creaking of the door or what my daughter would say crickets chirping. Toyota part #69046-08010. You will need two for each side at $10 each. I've replaced the door stops on both doors already and just recently the right side again for the second time. Installation is easy as just removing the two bolts.

The tape solution won't last long if you keep using the door.

Thanks for this information and the photo. I wondered what the foam insert looked like and which piece it was attached to. On my van the part that was causing the noise was a bracket attached to the frame (not on the door). If the tape doesn't last long, I will check into purchasing the part you have here.
