#1 of 31 2004+ Sienna 3rd row seat Q&A
Dec 13, 2006 (1:09 pm)
I notice all 3 head rests in 3rd row are hard to pull out.
Especially after unfolding from the floor. There is no way a normal person can pull the head rest in and out.
I am not sure if WD-40 will help?

I don't think you can pull them out from behind the seat. I've had no problem pulling htem up when I was sitting in the seat, though
#3 of 31 2007 Sienna w/leather... arm rests are non adjustable
Apr 01, 2007 (7:39 am)
Toyota Customer Care says all 2007 Sienna's with leather seats no longer have an adjustable arm rest. Instead the arm rest remains in the negative lean angle that was the start position when the arm rests were adjustable.
Fabric covered seats do have adjustable arm rests as always.
According to Toyota Customer Care this new arm rest design was directed by the Executive Committee and will not be corrected by Toyota even though the arm rest can be replaced with the 2006 leather covered arm rest to regain usability.
Please check your new XLE and Limited vans before accepting delivery. If the new negative angle position is acceptable then no problem. If that is uncomfortable then your problems begin if you accept delivery because the problem will not be fixed according to Toyota Customer Care representatives.
We have taken pictures if you would like to see what we are talking about.
Our research has discovered that our 2007 Sienna Limited has the only negative angle arm rest out of over 100 vehicles checked. All other arm rests in our van are set to level or positive rest angles.

I'm not a "car guy," but you're talking about removing the current door, opening it up to run wires so it can be electrically opened from inside and out, maybe even changing the part that actually secures the door (i.e., locks it) into place, and you'll need a motor to actually do the opening...
I'd look into trading in your car for an '04 or newer Sienna with the features you want first.

Does any one have an idea on how to protect new mats, floor and seats from stains or spillage? I am thinking of using Stochguard on seats. Any thoughts?

Good idea, I should do the same.

I am told Scotchguard will work on seats but NOT work well on carpeted floors or mats. What do others use for the floor? I need to find some economical way to protect floor carpet and mats from spills, dirt or water from snow in winter.
