rondhole: You do not need to remove the rubber, just shave it until it lock. That will save your time a lot.
David Ammerlaan: i had some thing and did that, but it ended up the center hinge being saggy. replaced that and it is fixed. there's a video on youtube about the center hinge for toyota sienna
Ryan White: Hi Nicole...I'm so glad it worked out for you. Definitely a hack, but seemed harmless enough and saved me a bunch of money and glad it did for you as well. Take care! Ryan
Nicole Van Matre: THANK YOU!!!! This totally worked and I am one Happy mama. This issue has been driving me crazy and my kiddos have gotten caught in the door from this problem.
I used the same chisel as shown to remove the stopper and also used the same tool to just slightly shave the end. All I had to do to get the stopper back in is deactivate the slider door & close it slightly and put the stopper back in place! It was super easy!!!!!!
Ryan White: Thank you. Sounds like you know a lot more than me about cars. I just sort of hacked this one. Thanks again.
blkshk1: Good fix but that sounds like the internal switch is not set in the right place and that should never happen.
Ryan White: Good luck! I'm not an expert or even really good with cars, but definitely had luck with that little trick. So annoyed about one of our other door problems. The front door clicking problem. Anyway...good luck on this one!
Matt Clason: I am going to try this when my wife gets home. Toyota will not honor the extended warranty on my Sienna since I am 4000 miles over the 120K.
chun cha Hatchel: should have cut it when it was in place!
