#16 of 43 Rubber bands worked
Sep 21, 2011 (10:05 am)
The internet and you guys are great. I used the rubber bands as shown in the photos and it worked.
I searched the internet on a whim because I was planning on taking the van to the shop tomorrow.
This is the second time the internet helped me with vehicle problems the first was with my GMC car key fob. It quit working on my car and I found some info on the internet and it cost me abot $10 and my keyflob now works.
I so stoked now.

My third row seats are stuck in my 2006 sienna. I see that you all are talking about how to fix it. I am a novice at these things and do not know how to find the links you all are talking about. Can you help me with step by step instructions. I am a sr. citizen and can't spend thousands to fix. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you to all. We were able to fix our seats at no expense, but thanks to all who bother sharing their experiences.

Thank you for re-posting the links/pictures on how to fix this problem. I went to the Toyota dealer and left my car. When I got home I decided to goggle this problem and was surprised to find the rubber band fix. The dealership wanted $719.00 to fix the problem (replacing the bottom piece). I told them I wanted to check out the rubber band option and they looked at me as if I were crazy. They charged me a $95.00 diagnostic fee (why or why didn't I google first). Brought the van home and gave it a try. Yes, I could do it manually by depressing the black knobs -- but the two rubber bands worked just fine. I was amazed that a 68 year old woman could figure it out -- it was sooooooo easy. Thank you again!!!!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR POSTING THE FIX WITH PICTURES!! Our single seat has been down for 2 years - just never have had the need to fix it. But yesterday the other side did not come up - so turn to the WEB and the rubber band fix works PERFECT!!

Thank you so much. It absolutely works! In two minutes I fixed something the dealer here in Fort Collins, Colorado wanted $650 for! And it would have only broken again! My wife thinks I'm a genius, but I gave this forum the credit. Thanks for the member who submitted pictures. It would have taken awhile to figure in out without them, but it truly is a miracle fix!
#25 of 43 hair bands work too

Amazing! Several months ago, both our 3rd row seats got stuck. My wife took it to the dealer and we left it overnight. They charged a diagnostic fee, something like $50-$100. They couldn't figure it out and wanted $1,200 to fix it. So she has been driving it around since then with the seats down. We want to use the 3rd row this summer, so I found this forum, read agnosto's post and pictures and used four hair bands to fix it in just a couple of minutes. I couldn't believe it was so easy and I am impressed with Agnosto for figuring it out. Two lessons: Never trust the dealer and always check the internet.
