Has anyone done the body side molding for their 2021 Sienna? If yes, any videos or tips please?

The Toyota OEM body side molding has an associated instruction sheet that gives detailed measurements on placement of the molding on the vehicle - but you have to ask for it from the dealer - it is not supplied in the box. The molding is not installed level, it is installed at an angle. Use an overhead projector pen/dry erase marker to make measurement point marks on the door and masking tape to mark your lines. Suggest you obtain a non-marring roller to press the molding firmly in place. Measurements (measure twice, mount once!), masking, and installing will take you 1-1.5 hours for a DIY install.

Thanks for the tip about asking the dealer for install instructions. I bought them online and just sent a request asking for a PDF copy of install instructions.

Where did you buy yours? I'm thinking of buying them too, I think it gives the van somewhat of an SUV look.

I did a search by using the part #. PT83K-08210-08 and google listed a whole bunch of links from Toyota Parts websites - from different dealerships. I opened around top 10 to 15 of them and picked the cheapest one.
