    Patrick asked me to document this change. While going to post this, I found this thread:
    http://priuschat.com/forums/gen-ii-...7-brake-actuator-replacement-in-pictures.html
    which already documents the change. However, since I already spent the time to make a document, here is my version. Note, I have yet to bleed the brakes. The car is working fine though. I will bleed the brakes using the Autoenginuity tool, but since the car seems OK, I will do it later, to many other pressing things right now. I have not found clear directions for bleeding the brakes with this tool yet, so it should be interesting. Furthermore, since they seem to work OK now, how would I confirm it is done correctly?

    Nice work. What warning lights remain on now?

    LOL

    I did seal the connector better, but I will see how it behaves over time. It did give me trouble in the past, but never blew the fuses, so it really got drenched. Two weeks later, and the connector was still wet inside. We will see.

    So what are symptoms of a bad actuator? I assume you got some warning light or code.

    Also, that part looks expensive...
