    I have the tech stream software with the mini VCI.I haven't been able to find any kind of a tutorial on the brake bleed procedure and I would like to bleed my brakes soon as the fluid is yellow and i dont think it's ever been changed. Does anyone have a link to a turtorial or anything like that for how to bleed the brakes using techstream?

    I've tried 3 or 4 times to execute and all I get is refer to tech manual for procedure. I haven't bought the 2 day pass just to see if there was a hidden key.

    No. You just select normal brake bleed from Techstream and then bleed the rear brakes while holding the brake pedal down.

    Pretty sure this is what you are looking for : http://techno-fandom.org/~hobbit/cars/TIS/ileaf/04toyrm/04toypdf/04rmsour/2004/04priusf/32/219qc/f040001.pdf

    Just be sure to use your mini-VCI device in place of the mentioned hand held device.

    Please tell us about your flush/bleeding process afterwards ;)
