What would be ideal is stainless cable ,now that would last a long time.
200kmax said:i still havent been able to source out a part number for the infamous cable spool that breaks due to crappy sheathing, cheap rusted cable.
i went to star toyota here in queens and they are just a bunch of a-holes. nobody seems to care other than the fact they say that they dont sell the standalone spool for the power door cable. i said, that the part exists, try harder. they claim that all their customers simply get it fixed from dealer and nobody buys any parts. whatever.
here is some inspiration for folks who are handy.
what i did so far is went to home dpot and bought around 12 ft of 1/16" cable without the sheathing. our cable is thinner gauge than the previous 1st gen sienna. 3/32" seems to be too thick. they sell 1/16" also but with a green vinyl wrap, although that too seems too thick.
unfortunately, the 1/16" cable is only galvanized, but without insulation. that means if we were to put in a new cable, we will still be exposed to the elements. what im thinking about doing is using heat shrink tube from a big spool. this way, the cable will be the right size for the roller and the motor spool.
follow the instructions from polifrog with the ferrut clamping, and we will probably be good.
if i finish this succesfully, i'll post pics and a write up, as this is only an idea in the works.
Then they are a stealership. If you look up the part numbers from post #7 at a online part place like www.toyotapartsales.com you will find the part at about $450:I just called a toyota dealership and gave them this part number-- seems it comes with the motor and is over $1k!!! anyone else have any luck?? our door broke the other day and i'm freaking out over the apparent cost of this.
