"Just letting you know I installed the battery Sat evening without any trouble. Took me about 45 min. (That didn't include 10 min searching for a second socket extender.) Not bad for a small 56 yr old female who has a desk job!
The instructions were very clear. I didn't have magnetized tools and was having difficulty with the vent duct bolt behind the liner, so I used a small piece of tape to keep the bolt in the socket while I got it started. Then it was easy to reach in and remove the tape and tighten the bolt the rest of the way.
I've emailed all my Prius buddies letting them know about my experience w/your product.
"I want to thank you for the help and service you supplied me. The instructions included were spot on and easy to follow. The total time to change this battery out was 15 minutes start to finish. The packaging was bullet proof the battery arrived 1 day ahead of promised time, safely. The cost savings was also a blessing. Toyota wanted $230.00 plus $30.00 destination charge. To get the battery from Orlando to Melbourne Florida . The dealer did not have one in stock. To top that off they wanted $75.00 to install it. Finely the Toyota battery comes with a one year warranty period. Thanks again for all your help and support.
