    Hello everyone,

    Good news: Finally completed my payment for my 2015 Prius IV Solar Panel. Let me tell you, if the loan had said 5 years instead of 60 months, I would probably think twice. But no regrets here.

    Are you familiar with this video?

    Did you try it? Let me know. If I receive good response, I might do it.

    Thanks guys!

    There's something wrong with that link. Here's the plain and simple Youtube link.

    That external filter looks like a good idea if you have lots of dirt & debris clogging up the filter. I've never had one need cleaning, probably because of not having pets and very rarely even having a back seat passenger.

    works for me :rolleyes:

    regarding a filter, i don't carry pets, and there's nothing else to filter. my fans are clean as a whistle after 70k.

    This is what I use, with dogs. The foam traps dirt and any of the smaller fur that "might"
    sneak through. I just wash both is the sink, shake off and reinstall after laying in the
    sun for 10 minutes or so. But you could just reinstall it.
    The foam was just a few dollars.

    Here’s a video by @NutzAboutBolts, for fan cleaning. It’s reg 3rd gen Prius, but v would be sim.



    I’ve checked mine a couple of times, didn’t bother pulling the seat cushion off; it’s not really necessary: you can just reach through, there’s one bolt to remove. Also I just cleaned the fan blades without full removal of fan.
