Toyota Sienna Service Manual: Vehicle lift and support locations

Toyota Sienna Service Manual / Introduction / Repair instruction / Vehicle lift and support locations


(a) The vehicle must be unloaded before jacking up/ lifting up the vehicle. Never jack up/lift up a heavily loaded vehicle.

(b) When removing heavy parts such as the engine and transmission, the center of gravity of the vehicle may shift. To stabilize the vehicle, place a balance weight in a location where it will not roll or shift, or use a transmission jack to hold the jacking support.


(a) Follow the safety procedures outlined in the lift instruction manual.

(b) Use precautionary measures to prevent the free wheel beam from damaging tires or wheels.

(c) Use wheel chocks to secure the vehicle.


(a) Work on a level surface. Use wheel chocks at all times.

(b) Set the jack and rigid racks to the specified locations of the vehicle accurately.

(c) When jacking up the vehicle, first release the parking brake and move the shift lever to N.

(d) When jacking up the entire vehicle: (1) When jacking up the front wheels first, make sure wheel chocks are behind the rear wheels.

(2) When jacking up the rear wheels first, make sure wheel chocks are in front of the front wheels.

(e) When jacking up only the front or rear wheels of the vehicle:

(1) Before jacking up the front wheels, place wheel chocks on both sides of the rear wheels.

(2) Before jacking up the rear wheels, place wheel chocks on both sides of the front wheels.

(f) When lowering a vehicle that only has its front or rear wheels jacked up:

(1) Before lowering the front wheels, make sure wheel chocks are in front of the rear wheels.

(2) Before lowering the rear wheels, make sure wheel chocks are behind the front wheels.

(g) It is extremely dangerous to perform any work on a vehicle raised on a jack alone, even for work that can be finished quickly. Rigid racks must be used to support the vehicle.

If a plate-type lift is used, the vehicle body may be deformed, the vehicle may not remain stabilized, or the undercover of the vehicle or other parts may be damaged. • If a plate-type lift attachment is used, the vehicle body will be deformed due to load concentration.
