    There isn't the same kind of PriusChat record of gen 3 having a notorious meter capacitor issue, the way there is for gen 2. I suppose that doesn't mean one can't occasionally flake out.

    Thank you for your response. I'm unlucky in that sense then. Started playing up when it got really cold in the winter recently.

    I'm from the UK. Helps to know it could be more than one particular issue though. Thank you.

    I followed a youtube vid to get it out


    Another one for the repair

    (I only changed the 10u)

    And my vents crumbled so found replacements on Amazon that fit like and look OEM for $99
    Edit: Seems like the site keeps trying to change my link to media for amazon. But search
    4Pcs A/C Dash Air Vent Trim Plate Panel, Air Vent Outlet Frame Cover, Compatible with 2004-2009 Toyota Prius 1.5L, Replaces# 55670-47060, 55680-47020, 55475-47020, 55474-47020

    Hope that helps!

    You're replying to as good a thread as any. Read the first two pages then jump to about page 15 and read pp 15, 16, and 17. After that, you can read as much of the rest as you like.
