I don't know how to open and close the hood of a 20 series Prius.
20 series Prius still running
If you try to add washer fluid yourself, you may not know how to open the bonnet.
You may not know how to close the hood next time.
The bonnet is made of aluminum so it is very light.
There are also some tips on how to tighten the bonnet.
YouTube video: How to close the hood of a Prius
To open the hood, just pull the lever below the start button
Pull the lever on the bottom right of the driver's seat
Raise the horizontal lever from the gap in the hood
It's a little hard to see
If you put your hand in the gap in the bonnet, it will lift up a little.
Raise the lever at the back
Insert the bonnet rod into the hole on the passenger side
There is an arrow ⇒ in the center of the photo
There is a hole at the end to insert the rod.
Pour the washer fluid into the large white tank.
Holds a considerable amount
I only use tap water
If you live in a region with low temperatures, it is better to use washer fluid with a higher concentration.
Drop the bonnet and close it
The Prius will have an aluminum bonnet.
Raise it about 30cm and drop it from there.
If it doesn't tighten, drop it from a higher place.
You cannot close it by holding it with your hand like a normal iron bonnet.
*Please be careful not to get your hands caught.
