    Been a while since I posted.

    At 68,000 miles our 2015 Prius has served us faithfully with no repairs.

    Regular maintenance has been performed initially by the dealer, now by an independent shop and we are on our second set of tires.

    BUT, here's the problem. I dropped the garage door opener from it's velcro mount on the dash down into the steering column and can't find it.

    Even adjusting the column in its lowest position, pulled out from the dash, and shining a flashlight while pushing the rubber flap inwards, no opener is visible.

    Further, laying on my back looking up under the steering column, the opener is visible.

    Any hints?

    tnx

    you will probably have to remove the shroud from the steering column

    Turn the wheel to each side and you will see 2 openings (one on each side).

    Put a screwdriver in there and open it up;).

    Good luck and keep us posted (y)
