Default Could someone help me find a post please?

Hi, have been searching for ages for a post but can't find it! Could anyone help me out by remembering anything more about it, or perhaps when / where it was posted?

It was posted by a girl writing on behalf of her brother/cousin/boyfriend who mentioned he was able to find a reclaimed Prius battery for $xx from xxxx salvage auction (not ebay). He needed it to replace a pack that had reached over 200k miles. Was several months ago (sorry, not sure exactly when).

Anyone remember it? Would greatly appreciate any pointers!

Cheers!

If I remembered correctly, I think you are looking for this:

http://ozgrl.com/priusparts.htm

Can't find the post but I've bookmarked it.

I remember what you are referring to. It is possible it was lost during the last crash of this site, unless it was on PriusChat.

Default Any Links to 2005 Prius Shop Manuals *.pdf files?

Any Links to 2005 Prius Shop Manuals *.pdf files?

eBay has a listing for 15 pounds of the hard copy shop manuals
starting bid at $199.00

The *.pdf version may be harder to index but sure would weigh less.

This really should be in its own thread. You can download them from Techinfo.Toyota.com for $10/day. You can also get a monthly or yearly subscription. The manuals from that site come in hundreds of little PDFs for each subsection, so you may decide to assemble them using your favorite PDF editor.

Ah, found it!

https://www.priusonline.com/viewtopic.php?t=1842

Which tells me the search engine on this site is broken! I used the keywords battery and salvage. Both words are in that topic.

Thanks for that DanMan32, that explains why I couldn't find it before!

Thanks to everyone else for helping too!

This site's database needs a major reindexing. Between the search engine not coming up with correct posts, and multipage posts giving an error post not found when selecting last page.

Since I don't read PriusChat, I know it was on PriusOnline. I didn't bookmark it, so I don't know if this thread survived the database crash...

Yes, the person did go through ozgrl.com for their replacement battery, and Toyota did give them the $200 credit/bounty for returning their bad battery for recycling.

Well, you have to have a credit card with a valid US address on it in order to use the techinfo site...

I'm guessing since the OP was mentioning 15 pounds, that they're probably in the UK... It's a rather different Prius outside of North America...

Over on the Prius-Europe yahoogroup, there is one person who has a copy of the German shop manual, and another with (I think) a UK shop manual (that his dealer gave to him!). If you have a specific question for someone to lookup for you, I'd suggest asking over there.
