    does anybody know what these small vents near the sunglasses holder are for?

    Do all 2nd gen Prius have these?

    As far as I know, my car does not have Bluetooth

    Did it at one time?

    Any info on this matter would be greatly appreciated... IMG_20190211_083221370.jpeg

    It is for Bluetooth but I suspect Toyota just used the same part regardless of whether there are mics behind the grille for the Bluetooth phone system.

    Yup. Universal part. Notice there's also a grille on the "passenger" side. Except in Japan, UK, etc. that's the driver side, so the mic goes over there.

    I managed to get the mic that came with my (non-Prius) BluLogic Bluetooth kit up in there, but it involved some cutting and gobs of hot glue.
