Heat on armrest cup holder rear seat

Asked by Jun 01, 2018 at 03:00 PM about the 2012 Toyota Sienna

Question type: General

After driving my Toyota Sienna for 10-15 minutes , I park
and then touch the cup holder in the rear seats on
passenger side only , and notice that they are very warm.
Not sure what is under there that could be causing this.  
My mini van is 2012.

I am having the same issue in my brand new 2018.

Probably an exhaust pipe.


If it is an exhaust pipe try some header wrap on that section of the exhaust. This should reduce the heat.
