The manual is - as usual - correct. There is no spare tire provided with the AWD models, and that's why the original tires are a run-flat design.

The lack of a spare with the AWD, and as a result ways to carry a spare with AWD, is a popular topic here in SiennaChat. If you plug "AWD spare site:www.siennachat.com" into a Google search, you'll have lots of reading material... generally from this 2004 - 2010 (Dec 2009) 2nd Generation Toyota Sienna section as well as the Tires, Wheels, & Tire Pressure Monitors (TPMS) section.

Try "run-flat site:www.siennachat.com" in Goggle search and you'll find lots of discussion of another popular and closely related subject: run-flat tires.

Due to the drive train going to the rear axle the undercarriage of the AWD Sienna is different to the one from the 2WD Sienna. They needed to move the tank and other parts. Therefore no room left for a spare tire.
But you can get a kit to mount a spare tire in the well of the 3rd row seat which then cannot be folded anymore.

Yep, that's the first match you get to my suggested search for "AWD spare".

I was hoping we could avoid building another extended discussion of the same information as we have in the other threads, while still helping our new member understand the situation.
