    This looks completely different from the pics posted on pump replacement. Only a single fuel line (not 3), and a different metal cap over the plastic one ??????? Help! 20210928_103117.jpg

    For a little context: this is a view with the rear seat bottom removed, and the service hole cover removed, looking down at the top of the fuel pump.

    Watch "Toyota Prius Fuel Filter Replacement Process || Car Tipx || Urdu / Hindi" on YouTube


    This while in Hindi is the general look feel of all the 2010 related videos I've seen. Of course mine looks way different. I LOVE Priuschat - thanks for the posts!

    No, don't worory about what that nasty gas type stuff will do to your skin....
    This is more of a fuel pump replacement. The pad he "cleaned", is the filter.
    It was a good video of how to get to it and get it apart and back together!!!

    Something different in the non-north-American market? No idea.
