    Hi all,
    My 2013 Prius does not have the battery fan over/filter thing that sits right outside the battery fan inlet, by the rear seats.

    But the 2014 and above has it.

    If I order the part from Toyota for the 2014 model, will it fit my 2013? Thanks!

    Yes. It's for all Gen 3 models.
    This is the part number.
    I also got the extra filter at either lowe's or home depot, I don't remember.
    But I pretty sure it was lowes...
    Because I have dogs, I wanted the extra protection from the fur.

    I've had not HV fan problems..

    Thanks! Does the part come with the filter already or do I need to buy that separately?

    The Toyota filter is just the part that clips on the air inlet. I think it was $14?

    The "foam" I purchased separately. $5-6??? Then I cut it to fit.
    I just rinse with water once a month or so.

    It added the extra foam because I have dogs in the bad.
    I wanted the extra protection to keep the fur out of the fan and HV battery....
    It does a very good job, and does catch a lot of dust.
