    Salvage yard is where I’d look as they rarely fail;).

    Mind sharing any backstory :whistle:?

    Good luck with your search(y).

    Isn’t it easier just to replace the entire transmission? Used units are probably less than a stator.

    Junkyard Prius that was put there from rear or side collision. Agree with others - just replace the entire assembly.

    What could have happened to the stator maybe the drive axle got chewed up?

    Replace the trans is easier. You wont be able to buy a stator anywhere except maybe the dealer. Cheaper to buy a used trans.
