eh. it's self identifying as british. you're fine. :D

mine has a tiny leak from the driver's axle seal. would leave a dime size when parked after a long drive. I don't feel like ripping the axle out of it AGAIN to change the seal. I'll just wait until I have other reasons to pull the axle(s).

Thanks to @snobrdrdan2 my red press car has an OEM shift knob back on it. At some point in it's previous life it got a dull-grey one (probably a PT part).

The knob that was on it took a lot of convincing with pliers and a rubber mallet to come off.

It's now an OE set of floormats away from being complete.

I remember the day I did that at an autocross event. Twice. The first time I managed to drop the shift ball into the center cupholder. The second time I dropped it into the driver's side footwell. That was a very distracting 50 seconds.

As does proper shift technique.
you totally missed the goal here. you should have said...
getting a proper grip on your ball will prevent it from ejecting from its rod. :D

Made an appointment for the latest EVAP code.
This time a P0440 after 350 miles of trouble free driving.

Equally anoying, almost a year later and the aux battery in the Prius just died.
So I'm re-charging it now hoping it will hold a charge.
This is the second occurrence (this time last year, same thing, possibly related to cold weather?).
It's 11 years old,, so probably way past due time for new aux battery.
I'd hate to get stuck somewhere with a dead aux battery.

Local Toyota Parts Department quoted a replacement cost of $195.99 + $18.0 core = $236.85.
Local Toyota Service Department quoted $390+ to replace the battery with a new one they have in stock.
Will do the install myself if the old battery holds a charge.
It's a 7-1/2 minute job.
Thanks.

Car is at Kelly Moss for trans swap. New ACT HDSS clutch kit w/ flywheel, AGP forged fork, and Boomba pivot ball going in as part of the job. Keeping all the old stuff (already had an ACT kit in there) and may list some of it for sale. I'd never buy a used clutch or flywheel, but I've seen people do it before so we'll see.

Damn....how much is that install/labor setting you back?

Did you ever get that "NOS" trans sorted out btw?
Are they installing it?
