Happened to me also. I took my van to RK Toyota in Hampton, VA and they told me it would be $1300 to repair the seat track but I wanted a 2nd opinon so my wife and I search online and found the fix. So she went to office Max and purchase a pack of rubber bands for $1.89 and followed the instruction on this site and the sets were back in operation in a matter of minutes.

I had the same problem for my 2006 Sienna
The dealer in Atlanta asked for $2000. With the proposed approach of this thread, I fixed the problem with rubber bands.

I had the same problem with my 2006 Sienna. - larger of the third row seating was stuck with the back down. I used the links above to fix the problem. Thank you so much for sharing!!
I can't believe the Toyota dealers can't tell you about this. I would be pissed if I paid anyone more then $20 to fix this problem.

I didn't go to the dealership first because I really didn't want the agony. So, I did the online search and wound up here after looking at a few articles. Anyway... I followed the link to your pictures and found your solution a very simple fix to the problem.

Thank you so much for re-posting the pictures and explaining how to fix this problem. I am re-posting the link to the pictures that helped me again because this fix really does work. I went to the toyota dealer who quoted me $1K for parts and labor. Then I called a local upholstery shop that was not aware of this problem. When I finally looked up how to fix my third row seats that had been stuck for months with the below link to the pictures, it worked in less than 5 minutes. My husband was shocked that I actually fixed it!
good luck to everyone!

Thanks for the post Bob! I have a 2008 Sienna. I bought the Toyota extended care warranty when we bought it new and am getting a lesson in just exactly what it covers!
I have the same issue with the folding rear seats. This is the second time I have had it in to be fixed. It seems to be intermittent.
The seat was stuck down for a month, after we jiggled the wires it suddenly worked again. Now my AUX port is no longer working. I live near several Toyota dealers so I shopped around when I bought this van. We ended up buying in the next town over. First, we learned that not all dealers have the same protection plans. I thought that if I bought a Toyota at the dealer the protection plans they sold me there would be Toyota affiliated. I bought the Resist All Fabric Protection and the local dealer will not honor it, so I have to go to the other dealer to take care of any fabric issues. Not a big deal, but would have been nice to know up front. Also, if anyone is thinking of using the Toyota Extended Care Warranty please understand that there is a difference between the parts and labor it covers and the diagnostic fee. I didn't understand that diagnosis of the problem is not considered labor. Not a nice surprise at the end of the day.

I love the internet... and you folks who took the time to put the solution on the net. I just placed 2 rubber bands as shown in the pictures and now have a functioning 3rd row seat again.
agnosto, you should set up a pay pal account for people to donate some of their savings to you.

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.
