The part numbers are #62381-AE012 and 62382-AE012 description Weatherstrip. The invoice reads NEC to replace top weatehr strippings with UPDATED Parts LAB OP BD8040, COMBO A. If you call over there the advisor was Sean McCarthy but I also worked with Brian Coster alot on this issue he is the service manager at Grosinger Toyota and I guarantee you they remember me and my frozen doors.
Just a reminder when I told him about the weather strip recall info I had found on the internet he also checked with Toyota and when they punched in my vin # they were told the new weatherstripping WOULD NOT fit my car. They only tried it as a last ditch effort to get me out of their faces. You will have to be fairly forceful to get them to order it for your car if your vin # doesnt match as well.
Hope this helps Good Luck!
Thats not true as they started replacing engines that blew up with sludge in the oil pans when they finally acknowledge a design flaw in their product.
Their solution to the problem is to spray the weather strip with a silicone spray made by Worth. He did admit the new 2011 Sienna has a totally different door design. I have not seen it yet but if it does that really says it all doesn't it. It does not matter for me as this was my first and last Toyota I will ever buy. I understand from time to time design flaws occur but in this case they dropped the ball by not recognizing it and taking care of their customer. The recent gas pedal problem looks good on them. It is finally bringing light to the bigger problem at Toyota
Never Toyota again....
There are many other complaints on the forum and Toyota is denying that it is a defect in the product. SOmeone suggested we all report the problem to NHTSA
1200 New Jersey Ave. S.E. Room W45-302
Washington, DC 20590
I have written to Toyota and to the NHTSA. Please do the same. If there are enough of the same complaints someone has to listen.
I am going to submit another letter to NHTSA and see what they are going to say.
Toyota has a lot of lobbying power.... money talks I guess... so sad
""We have yet to be contacted by the NHTSA regarding what has been reported in the press about a power-steering issue in the Corolla," Toyota spokesman Paul Nolasco said. "Should we be contacted about any investigation by NHTSA related to any of our products, we will cooperate fully."
NHTSA has said it is looking into complaints from drivers about difficulty with the steering in 2009 and 2010 Corollas which say they can wander while driving on highways."
I am having the the same problem 3 weeks ago during rain and I have sent my complaint to NHTSA. They have not contacted me yet.... Maybe they will look into it when there is fatality first... What are we ... a bunch of guinea pig ( we pay them to test their product).... Wake up NHTSA.....
I am really really pissed.......
Please file a formal complaint here instead:
I did file a formal complaint through their website. I think they are just pinpointing certain model and years and ignore others. I think NHTSA should check all the Toyota parts for all the models. Like check all the brake system, gas system, electrical system on all the model and see whether some parts being used on other car models that are not in the recall list. I do not know... I could have dumped this van and buy other brand and go on with my life. It is just that I felt being cheated by Toyota and I do think a lot of you feel the same.
I think NHTSA should check all the Toyota parts for all the models
Keep in mind they have finite resources. They need our help to narrow it down - a lot.
Last night, I had to drive a great distance with my child in the van while the DOOR WOULD NOT CLOSE. It was dark and I had trouble seeing well since all of the interior lights were on. PLEASE FILE A COMPLAINT ASAP if you have or had this problem. Here is the link: http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/index.cfm
I took this to the dealer immediately because it is a MAJOR SAFETY RISK and they told me that this was an "isolated incident" and they will not cover the repair. I have 80K miles and they said things do wear out. I get that things wear out, but the things that are VITAL TO SAFETY must be ROBUST and cannot wear out in 4 years. This is much different from the upholstery wearing out!! This is a serious DESIGN DEFECT. If they do not pay for the fix, I will be buying a new car that is NOT a Toyota.
Here is what to do to get your door to close until you get it fixed: use a screwdriver in the rear latch mechanism to LIFT the jammed latch UP (yes, it is covered with black grease) WHILE YOU ARE HOLDING THE DOOR HANDLE OPEN. It will probably take a little work to get it up and out of the way, but the latch area must be open. Then you can release the door handle and the door will close.
I've been encouraging people to do that for a while, now it actually seems to be working. Reported problems are up more than 33% since all the attention in the media.
There are a number of plastic barbs molded into the cover that secures the molding besides the 2 screws.I would start on the edge at the back of the van moving around the top to the front. You may then be able to see the other barbs and push them back with a screw driver. There are also 4 barbs around the handle. 2 of mine broke but it still pops back in place. Make sure the lock is open other wise the cover is trapped behind it.
Once the cover is accessible you can manually manipulate the linkages hidden inside.
I have had the same problem. I have left the screws out so I can pop the cover off anytime so I can operate the door while I release the rear latch mechanisim with a screw driver. There are some little white plastic bushings in the latch. 1 of mine has broken consequently the rear latch is not released when the door tries to cycle open. Toyota replace the motor in my door but never resolved the root cause of the problem...the latch bushings broke. they want $800 CDN to fix it now!
And I had the extended warranty but that doesnt cover door parts..go figure?
This sounds like the problem I had. Two of the three bolts on the rear latch of the sliding door had pulled through the sheet metal, preventing the rear part of the door from latching. I used two washers and slightly longer bolts. I left the piece of sheet metal that had pulled through in place to position the bolts. The order on the new bolts is, new washer (slightly bigger than the hole, small cone shaped washer that is actully the sheet metal that pulled through, and insert into hole. The threads start so deep inside the door that you will need longer bolts than what came with the car to accomodate the new washers. Even though I used hex head bolts (easier to get in), and the bolts stick out more than the original, there is room and they do not hit anything when the door closes. I did not weld anything and it just took a few minutes. The door works as well as new. Tools required: star screw driver to remove the orignal bolts and hex wrench set to install new bolts. Tools and part are available at most hardware stores. Since I had both tools, it was less than a $5 repair and stronger than the original.
1. Front Passenger Door Popping when opening and closing - got fixed because there was a recall on it. Toyota dealership also replaced the 2 shocks on the back door because it won't hold the door when opening. that's the 2nd.
3. Airbag lits on the dashboard. They said airbag on the driver side is open. They're charging me $2,000 to have it fix/reset. Gosh! I cannot afford it so problem still there.
4. Two weeks ago, I noticed my RPM went wild up to the red mark while I'm driving 70mph on the freeway and somehow felt a loss on my speed. When I exited, I felt the surge during turnings but no indication on my dashboard for engine or transmission failure. The next day I went to Toyota dealership in Temecula, Ca for check up and after road test with the manager and inspections he advises me that my transmission is about to go bad. Total cost for parts and labor, they're charging me 5k excluding tax. Naturally, I seek for 2nd opinion elsewhere and mechanics was puzzled because there should be messages on the dashboard when something wrong with the car specially engine and transmission. However, they replaced my tranny for 2400 hundred including tax. Of course its a rebuilt.
Yesterday, is my 5th major discrepancy with this van. my power sliding door quit working. Did I bought a lemon van? Please advice.
Technically, a lemon is a repeat problem in the first year, 3 times to be exact.
So no, not a lemon, but you have had bad luck.
My advice to you is to file a complaint to
I have encountered more problems than you and the Toyota dealer do not care at all.
My 05 sienna sliding door siezed and I was forced to cut the cable in order to shut the door. The Toyota dealer quoted $2100 for the fix which is consistent with other quotes posted on edmunds. I registered a complaint with Toyota and NHTSA both and of coarse Toyota stated that this is an isolated incident and would do nothing for me...sounds like Toyota gave me the same company line they gave the victims of unintended acceleration. This wont get fixed until someone is injured or killed. By the way, the door shut on my child while parked on a hill.
I spoke with a Toyota dealer mechanic on the side and he said "oh yeah, this is an 80,000 mile problem". He said I am lucky because I got an extra 9,000 miles before it broke (my Sienna had 89,000). I will be "Moving Forward" with the 2011 Honda Odyssey.
Yes, definitely, here's the link again:
TODAY....my sliding door fell off the track and broke the back window in the process. Someone told me to check online for recalls, and here I am...apparently this is a problem everyone or many are having. The screws were loose on the part that attached the door to the roller...which someone in here mentioned they found as well. I have had to push the door open manually because the automatic opener wouldn't work. I am so relieved to find that I am not a lunatic!
Check your doors, and make sure everything is tight! I am crossing my fingers this won't be out of my pocket today!
I have so many problem with this van, you would not believe it.
I will list it again.
1)replace gas tank (recall) and a week after the replace , gas gusted out under the van . Took them around 2 weeks to repair.
2) replace brake caliper to solve the half a year break pad worn off syndrome of this van. After my repair the break pads last longer than 2 years...
3)driver side popping noise (recall). Welding came off. I just wonder when will my passenger side door will have the same problem in the future.
4)light bulb burned out.
5) replace seat belt of 2nd row. (recall)
6) driver side automatic door will not work. replace the arm that hold the door but eventually the rubber that wrap around the cable that pull the door worn off and came off. The door is still working but with louder noise from the friction of the bare wire when we use it. I hope it will last until i have money to buy a new van.
7) driver side seat belt is hard to release. Brought it Toyota, hoping because of safety issue that they will repair it... Big NOOOOOO.. it will cost me 300. to fix.
Not fix yet
8) notice there is a brown residue inside my radio window, I think something is burned inside. Out of warranty.
ON and ON ... this is a piece of junk that put together with cheap parts. Ironically, these parts that are either worned off or broke off cost very little to replace, if they design it correctly. But toyota has to make it impossible to repair unless you replace the entire assembly...This is all because of money $$$$$$$$$. I am used to be a Toyota lover... not anymore.........
