Toyota Sienna Sliding Doors

” This article is about the inside of a Toyota Sienna power sliding door. They were a nifty concept, but in application they are a nightmare. They break constantly, and are horrifically expensive to repair when they do so. They have multiple motors, and replacing the regulator cables often requires the Air Conditioning Evaporator Core, which is mounted in the rear body panel, be removed. Replacing the motor cable which broke on some vehicle takes more than 4 hours, and the part is nearly $600.

Well, the good news is Toyota just announced a warranty extension on the Power Sliding Doors -9 years, 120k miles.
