From what I remember about my 2000, there was a reset button(about left knee level). When you initially start the car, press it in, and it should reset, unless there's a problem with your tires.....I think! At least, that's what I remember! I have a 2007, and the button is in the same place. Good ol' Toyota....making it easier for those of us who don't particularly like change!

For those that ordered and replaced your cabin air filter, which brand did you get and where from. I see Kinsen, NPN and TYC brands a lot on the internet. The Kinsen and TYC look similar and the NPN looks more sturdy. Called the dealer and they wanted 29.99 for a filter. I will pass on that price.
Thanks for your input.

Just replaced my Cabin Filter today. Bought a Wix brand, at a local autoparts store in my town in Michigan. Paid $19 plus tax. I will try Walmart next time and see if its any cheaper.

I just put in the FRAM Fresh Breeze cabin filter for $14.00. If can be purchased on Amazon, and features a carbon impregnated filter with an additional layer of Arm and Hammer baking poweder to boot. Smells like a new car, you won't be dissapointed
#409 of 460 new tires for a Toyota Sienna 2002 for all weather
Mar 26, 2010 (10:51 am)
The manufacturer's suggestion is 205 70R/15 or 205 65R/15. I would like to know from your experience which tires to use for this car. I am in FL. Brand and model if you have it. Someone suggested using tirerack.com, but with shipping and installation it seems much more expensive than getting it at a local tire store.
I've had Uniroyal installed before with 75k miles guarantee 205 70R/15, but the steering wheel shakes when driving, only 45k in the tires. I took it to the mechanic and he did balancing and rotation, but the problem persists.
He said I need to change the tires. I don't think he is trying to sell me new tires or anything as he suggested going to any tire place for replacement as he doesn't do that.
#410 of 460 Front End Protection

I am hoping to protect the front bumper from stone/insect dings on an upcoming road trip. Does anyone have any experience or recommendations on a front end cover such as LeBra? Appreciate your advice.

They all help, but don't leave them on for good; they can damage the finish.
#412 of 460 cabin air filter direction
May 22, 2010 (1:43 pm)
Was going to get the fram fresh breeze cabin air filter and noticed that the air flow arrow points downward and on the original OEM filter the air flow arrow points upward. On the non OEM filters, would you just reverse the direction of the filter. On the Fram Fresh Breeze there is more of the Arm and Hammer baking soda on one side than the other. Otherwise both sides of the filter are identical.
Thanks for your input.

What I meant to say on this original post is on the OEM filter, there is an arrow with the word up, which probably has nothing to do with airflow, just the position of the OEM filter. Question is with most filters I see there is an air flow arrow pointing downwards. So is the airflow always downward no matter what the filter?
Hope this makes sense.

I just did EXACTLY the same task yesterday, so it's fresh in my mind.
Same replacement filter, actually - Fram fresh breeze.
What I noticed it that the "dirty" side was facing up on the OE filter. So I looked at the flow direction of the new filter, and installed it in that direction.
One thing I did not like - the OE filter has many, many more pleats. So the surface area is greater. The Fram filter may not flow as well. I'll check it in 10,000 miles or so to see if it clogs up sooner, but that was a bummer.
Next time I think I'll buy an OE filter. The Fram wasn't cheap, either, IIRC $17 or so at WalMart.
What did you pay for yours?
