It is impossible. Buy a new one. Don't waste your time!

I found a good fix @ Please contact Toyota (phone number in your owner manual) to document this defect, the more complaints they receive, the better the chance of a recall.

A more complete URL to the page referenced in the second answer is ...

I used that successfully to repair the broken rear door latch on my 2000 Toyota Sienna. ("Buy a new one" is ~$65. I made the repair with tools and screws lying around the house in about an hour's time. Repair at the dealer reportedly is ~$300.)

How do you repair a broken rear electric window for a 1998 Toyota Sienna?

If the window glass is broken, I suggest you take it to a trim shop as it is quite complicated to install a new glass. If the window just won't go up and down, you need to take the trim pannel off and check out where it isn't getting voltage. It probably is the motor though which is kind of complicated to replace but you can get a factory shop manual from MOTORLIT.COM to show you how but it is pretty expensive.

If you do have concerns, I suggest asking a salesman. Here is an article on the Toyota Sienna hybrid, one of the most popular hybrid mini vans:
