sliding door problem


Recommended Posts

Hi All, my sliding door only shuts to about 70% of the way then opens again. the other side works perfectly.   I had this before and found the window was open a bit, shut the window and it worked ok, but this time windows are shut. Also if you turn the power button off and shut the door manually it is quite stiff and will not close fully.  I am guessing the (bowden) cable is worn out and catching.  Anybody had this problem, before I order a new cable?  

Kendo.

Would guess problem with cable; these are high wear items due to frequent use, heavy doors, quite thin cable for the job So they wear out easily. You might get away with a clean up and re-lube to fix it. If the plastic sleeve is still on the cable then lube it with a ptfe spray but if the plastic has worn through so they you’re down to bare metal cable then use a good quality waterproof grease.

Hi there. I've stumbled across this whilst doing a search.

We have just received our 2007 Alphard. 

The passenger door seems to have the same issue as above. 

It's really stiff to close manually and closes part way on the motor and comes open again.

Was there any resolution to this issue? @kendo. Thanks.

The problem with Amayama is shipping costs.

Now you have the part number try Toyota Direct.

They can only say yes or no.

Shipping will be more reasonable.

Thank you. Is that the correct part that fails and causes the door to be stiff etc?
