Toyota Sienna recliner seats

I am adding a couple seats for passengers in our bus. My floor plan and layout needs 2-3 2nd row seats from a 2011-up Toyota Sienna Limited van. These seats are actually recliner seats not just reclining backs. I am having trouble locating these seats at a reasonable price. If anybody can help locate these seats near the Mississippi Gulf Coast I would greatly appreciate it! I can't afford the $1,000+ price people are asking on Ebay.

Reasonable price

Many other people like those seats too.

Reasonable for me would be $200 each. Not available in my area.

Yeah, I could probably do couple hundred each but not $1000-$1500 and up on Ebay. Just haven't been able to find a salvage yard along the coast here that has them.

Have you tried car-part.com??

Do those seats come standard on only the limited?

If yes, looks like LKQ-Keystone-Gulf Coast in Livingston, LA has them for $250 each.

Only the limited unfortunately. I called that LKQ and the guy told me the computer lists seats when they load the car in the system but they don't really sell them and the are probably bad because they don't take precautions to preserve them when they sell the doors. I told him I could have them recovered and asked if he could go look for me and he reiterated they don't really sell seats.

Ok, I stand corrected, 2011-up Toyota Sienna Limited -OR- XLE. However, not ALL of these have this type of seats, it was an option on only these models. So if anybody finds a reasonably priced set of these seats anywhere near Mississippi Gulf Coast please let me know. Thank you Skoolie.net community!

I have had the local LKQ yard tell me that too on parts.
After talking to the boss man vs the counter guy, it appeared the counter guy was just being lazy.

Yeah, after posting that message it made me think "why did I accept that answer from him?" If they have the seats listed and if they actually have the seats there, why not sell them and make a few extra dollars. I mean even if they are exposed to the weather after selling the doors off of it, sell the seats cheap and let the buyer deal with it if they want to, it would be like free money to them at that point. Better than just sending them to the crusher! So, I am gonna call them tomorrow if they are open or Monday.

Seats and junk yards

I have found much better results to show up in person. Have pictures of the seats you are looking for and what years the seats are from. Have money- cash that you are willing to pay. If they have them. Then work to see what you can get the price down to. I was able to purchase my 2004-2007 Chevrolet pickup seats at $50-$60 each this way. Power seats expect around $25 more.

I was actually considering just that. If they are open Friday I was thinking of just going there to see for myself since I am off. Just sucks that someone won't have their runner go look next time they go out in the yard. It would take them 5 min vs. me driving an hour and a half each way just to see if they even have them or not. But hey, road trip right! If the tires were in better shape on the bus I would love to take it on a little trip like that.

Hey Bridg, I can't help with a specific pointer...but we buy seats from a place which does handicapped accessible conversions down in Phoenix. They immediately remove the seats from new vans they buy and sell them as take outs. So, it might be worth checking near you for a van conversion biz like that. Maybe? Not sure if that helps or not...but it's a thought.

Great idea, I'll look into that!

Well....strike up another one for the big guys. So LKQ does not allow you to just show up and get a part. There has to be an order put in then they pull them in the order they were received. They told me it would be next week. I could not even get anybody to go look to verify they had the correct seat. I will resume my search elsewhere, wish me luck.
