Inspect all window molding. I'm guessing maybe the windshield is leaking or the pass. side door windows are leaking.

Probably not a good plan in Chicago in the the winter, but you can sit/lay on the pax side while someone sprays water around the windshield and door areas to see where it might be coming it. First candidate in summer would be a clogged ac evaporator core water drain line; don't know how much moisture the hvac sytem pulls out in the weather you're dealing with.

Question Door Handle

One more thing; the door handle of the rear passenger side of the van broke off as it was being opened. Where can I get a replacement???

Also, it so happened that when I was opening the trunk I heard something breaking and the trunk also won't open. Is there something I can do to fix it or is the visit to the mechanic necessary.

Please let me know.

Thanks for the replies.

The door handle will be a dealer item; get the vehicle color code from the sticker in the door jamb because it'll come painted to your color. Door handles are one of the few weak spots Toyotas have.

The rear hatch sounds like maybe part of the inside linkage broke or came apart. That one may be tough to work on since the interior panel will have to come off to access it. The side door interior panel has to come off the replace the door handle as well, however you'll have the advantage of being able to open that one to work on it. Depending on how accessible the inside of the rear hatch is, you may be able to get the inside panel off and have a look.

Refaz,

I also have a Toyota Sienna (2000) suffering from soggy floorboards on the front driver and passenger sides. I live in North West Washington state where there is a lot of rain but I only notice the puddles after it snows. I have been trying to locate the source of the leak since the winter of 05-06 but have not been able to do so. Have you been able to locate the problem?
