I solved the problem for about $5. I have a 2007 Sienna and called in to Toyota about the problem. They said the part is about $60 and then you pay the labor. Of course, this would only solve the problem temporarily. Same thing will eventually happen again because of the design flaw. Solution...... by a pack of velcro. Cut a strip to match the size of the latch. Peel back the tape for the sticky side of the velcro and match it to the latch. Cut another piece of velcro and attach it to that. I left the fuzzy side down for my fingers. The velcro is flexible so the sensor can still be engaged to open the door. Works great! Has been through rain, the leakage has stopped and it is dry to the touch. And....because the velcro is black, you don't notice it at all. Earned a lot of brownie points with my wife...

Not only is my 2007 LE that I bought in September have a sticky latch, it will only open 1 in 5 times. It is not a remote opener and I would like to know if it can be converted. All in all, I'm ready to trade the car if this can't be fixed.
