The not-so-definitive guide to Sienna seats

Ok soooo I'm kinda lazy to search all 36 pages here. If a guy wanted leather, recliners, that I could mount in the drivers and pass position, what year models would I focus on? always from the 2nd row correct?

Did they ever make those seats air cooled or heated?
2011-2014 leather recliners (tan or gray, w/ tan/gray/black? plastic lower surrounds) from 2nd row Sienna (I forget the name of the specific higher trim package), are bunched leather centers.
Or 2015+ (gray or chestnut brown--only black plastic lower surrounds), are perforated Sport leather centers.
www.car-part.com, Craigslist (look for a seller in LA as well as Phoenix AZ), eBay (same sellers). Expect to pay $1200/pair or more easily from them, but they'll be brand new. + S&H to you.

Looking for new seats for the drivers & pass seats. Would you use these (with custom bases made)?
I can't afford the Sheel bad boys. 😢
Custom bases at this point as I don't believe MG (ExpoVans) is offering either front row or 2nd row adapters/mounts anymore...is that correct MG?

Two 2018 Coffee Colored recliners available (I think).

I purchased another pair to use as our back seats but also just got notified of a penthouse top available and would rather use the money for that.

Is there any interest in these for $1100 plus shipping from south Florida? Only a couple minor scuffs on the plastic as pictured.

I still have a single mount for the Sienna seat (I only needed one) if anyone wants to buy it. I’m in Canada so given their weight I wouldn’t want to ship it too far.

Can’t remember if I ordered it from mgmetalworks or from u joint but it’s identical to those shown and the mate to it is still working flawlessly in my van to this day.

I would kill for a swivel for front passenger sienna in an e350 :( installed my siennas with the slide bases last year and regretting not having got a swivel back when they were made. If anyone has one I’ll buy it on the spot

Are these still available? I just drove down to S. Florida in my ambulance conversion I’m working on and seats are on the list.

What exactly does this middle lever do? Its connected to a rod underneath the seat that runs from one side to the other but i cant tell exactly what it is supposed to do. Can i remove the rod underneath the seat to make room for my sliders and base adapter? The back lever is for recline and the front lever is for the foot rest, but i have no idea what the middle one does.

That lever turns the rod which pushes down some tabs that let the seat slide fore and aft in the sienna tracks.

Not sure what role it plays in the structural integrity of the seat.

One track for the other seat is on the ground. The tabs on the rod under the seat press the tabs on that car that the seat clicks into.

I plan to weld a portion of the sienna track onto the conversion van swivel bases I currently have in the van.

Hope this helps.
