SOURCE: 2000 Toyota Sienna tailgate door will not open/broken handle

I hope I can help, I had the same problem on my 2001. I called the dealership and they said 375.00 + parts to fix. Being mechanically inclined I decidet to try it myself. Please understand, this is not exact, but is a pretty good guide. To open from the outside, make sure doors are unlocked(mine relocked after a minute or so) place a screwdriver, long and thin, into the slot that the handle passes through the door on the right side. Raise the handle of the driver, and you should be pressing down on a cable that operates the latch. the door should release. If you cant do that, from the inside, remove the two side trim pieces. Then remove the inner door panel, One screw under plastic cap on handle, one under cap on strap... and pop off all plastic buttons(hidden) between the door and cover, a 1" putty knife will work for this. You will see the cable that used to connect to the handle. Remove the cable by pulling it through the slot(apparent when you get to it) and now remove the two screws that hold the handle on. Also, you have to remove a screw from the passengers side of the cover plate over the handle. the plate will slide(not sure which way now), and it will come off. replace the handle and etc..... inreverse.. Took me 25 minutes, start to finish. Further questions, let me know. remember, mine was 2001 Sienna.

SOURCE: 1994 toyota previa passenger side door window repair

First you have to find a special epoxy that is sold at auto paint specialty stores. It is an industrial resin epoxy made for side window installation. Second make sure you have a caulking gun because this epoxy is sold in tubes just like home caulk. Rubber gloves are essential because the epoxy will not come off, wash off it will only wear off after about a week. Next you must raise the window assembly using your up/down button. If it is a window that raises up and down of course. The reason I say this is because some vehicles have little triangle windows that are stationary. I will assume that this is a passenger window that goes up and down. Once you have raised the as-sy. you will see where the window glass is installed. You must carefully remove all bits of glass from this assembly and any glue from the factory. Take your time doing this because if you bend or stretch this piece in any way it will destroy the integrity of the assembly. After you have cleaned this out you will have to make several preparations for the next step. Once you start you cannot stop. Do a dry run - gently sliding in the glass into the glass seat. If it will not fit into the guides - sometimes you have to remove the fabric guides and under those you will see small screws that can be undone. Disassemble as little of this as possible to get the window in and on the tracks. Once you see what will be involved get ready to complete repair. Place a generous bead of the epoxy into the glass seat.
Have the window and assembly ready after this. Make sure you have figured out how to get the complete assembly in and the glass in the tracks during the dry run! Once everything is seated and the glass is in the epoxy finish all assembly and then roll the window all the way up into the guides. Make sure it is in correctly and goes up and down smoothly because once this epoxy dries you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REVERSE THE GLASS POSITION. After all is good and you are confident it is in right - roll it all the way up and then allow it to dry for a couple of days. This is exactly how it is done at the body shops. I know because I have done this Professionally. It really isn't that hard - it is just really detail oriented and takes patience on your part. Don't get in a hurry , do the dry run, double check your work and then let it dry. Voila! you just saved yourself a couple hundred bucks! P.S. do not get curious and roll the window down before the epoxy is set or you will have destroyed your work. Good Luck!!!

License plate screw receptacle

The metal ones that came with your car are probably not going to work again, but you can purchase nylon inserts at most any part store. You will need to modify the holes to accept the new insert and you will want to apply some silicone to the opening to prevent rust from starting to the bare metal surface at the modified openings.

The light that goes on the license plate on my 91 toyota previa, I need to know where the fuse panel is for that light

It's the same fuse that runs your tail lights. If the plate light isn't working, you probably have a broken wire near the back, or a faulty bulb. Get a wire circuit tester and locate the wire. Check for power at the bulb socket, and if no power, keep making your way back on the wire until you find power, or a broken wire.

Need to remove the panel on the back door so I can reattach the light frame above the license plate. How do I do this as the holders seem really tight. Do I break them and then replace them?

buy some replacement pins when you buy the frame, they're not expensive. But I just used a straight screwdriver and pried them off... Only broke one, myself.

Back door latch broke cant open back door where can i buy the part and the name of the part

I just bought the part last week for 61.76 from the dealership. It takes about two hours to unscrew the strap from the inside, remove trim from the inside starting at the top, sides and bottom. Remove the license plate from the outside of the hatch. Next remove the 8 bolts (10mm)and 3 white plastic tabs that snap on from the large black plate and move to the side (you don't need to disconnect the wires). From here you can reach around the rear window unit and open the door by moving the latch or pulling the cable. You should remove the 4 nuts that hold on the rear window assembly and move the to reach two nuts which holds the center portion of the trim piece you are trying to remove. There should be a plastic piece covering the cable and latch, it just pops off by pulling it straight out. There are three plastic tabs in the corners and one screw (lock for the hatch) that holds on the license plate assembly to the rear hatch along with two white plastic tabs which are located at the bottom two holes for license plate. These plastic tabs come in from the front. Use pliers to squeeze the together and push. You will need to disconnect the license plate lamp wire connector from the left side. The license plate assembly should drop away. Two screws hold on the latch, remove and replace and reverse proceedure.

Having problems getting access to my license plate bulbs to replace them

  • well for this you will have to remove the whole license plate holder, first you will need to remove the licence plate and locate & remove the four screws that are holding the part after that you will have to locate about five other screws located inside the trunk then you can remove the part bottom first and you will have acces to the license plate lights and reverse lights.
