check out this website it tells you how to repair the handle since it cost about $65.00 to buy a new one. http://www.findonefindall.com/toyota-sienna/
This is a growing problem with many Sienna models, the only way to fix it, is to replace it, I would suggest you contact Toyota Corp. (find the number in your owners manual) with your defect, as I have placed a complaint of this defect with them, they responded by saying "the more complaints they receive the better the chances are they will recall this defect".
There's an excellent discussion of this problem at this thread: http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic203428.htm The quick answer is that you remove the inside handle and strap, pull off the vinyl cover and replace the handle. A new handle will cost you ~$70 at a Toyota dealer, but it's still much cheaper than paying that same dealer ~$400 to do it for you.
Which door handle? Though, I think they are all similar in that you must remove the plastic interior on the inside of the door first to get access to the inside of the door. You then unbolt the trim panel to remove it. I just replaced the rear handle on the Sienna and I know the rear works that way for certain. Removed the interior plastic panel (first had to unscrew and remove the two handles on the inside of the rear door, then the entire plastic panel just pulled right off). There were 3 bolts holding the exterior handle trim piece to the Sienna. Unbolted those and the trim popped off. Took me about 15 minutes to take the door apart, replace the handle and put all the pieces back together.
It is impossible. Buy a new one. Don't waste your time! I found a good fix @ http://www.findonefindall.com/toyota-sienna/ 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 ... http://www.findonefindall.com/toyota-sienna/siennareardoor.htm 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.)
