    I've tried to do my due diligence in these forums and on the web. I have read that the 2010 Synergy drive does not have a chain but I can not find a detailed (credible) mechanical or cut away drawing that shows the new configuration.

    The Wikipedia doesn't have one and really should plus I'd like to understand how and what replaced it.

    Any hints on how or where to search would be appreciated.

    I can not help it I really like knowing what is spinning and how with more detailed than the abstract sun gear models etc.

    Hope this finds a better informed real gear head out there.

    At Prius Connection San Francisco (and likely all the other ones in the traveling event, other than Detroit), there was a display showing the PSD from the 2nd and 3rd gens next to each other. The pics I have look the same display as the ones posted by Tech_Guy.

    There's some high level info in the PDF at http://priuschat.com/forums/gen-iii-2010-prius-main-forum/60002-prius-technology-video.html. I don't have the videos committed to memory so I can't recall how much depth they went into on the PSD.
