    Hello there!

    We had a small accident with our prius plus 2012, while reversing into the garage, my wife didnt close the back door and bent the door.. mechanic managed to bend the door back into shape, but its only a temporary solution, we need a new door..
    I found one complete door for sale, but its from 4th gen prius plus..
    The question is, is there any change on the back door between 3th and 4th gen Prius Plus (V)?
    Thank you for your advice!

    can't say positively, but since gen4 is a complete redesign, it's highly likely that they are not the same.

    To do this kind of research I'd go to http://www.car-part.com and search up the door for your year/model. It has a pretty good interchange as far as I'm aware. Might be able to find a replacement there in the proper color, (hopefully).

    Best of luck!

    I asked my toyota dealer, he checked the door and found that there were no modifications made onn the rear door of the prius V (plus) between 3rd and 4th generations, they should be the same..
    Iwill double check that info on http://www.car-part.com thank you for good advice!

    Ahh. You may not know this but this thread seems to be in the lowercase v (wagon) side of the forum. (Unless Tapatalk is being buggy like it has in the past)...

    Good point. It doesn't really affect your results. Hope you find one in your color so no painting is needed.

    Best of luck!

    The Prius v (note lower case) is a station wagon never issued in a Plus model. That is the forum thread you are posting in. Not liable to give you the answer you want.
