You could come to MASSACHUSETTS :) I would assume you are talking about the coolant pump?? Bad news the pump are on backorder from Toyota. Good Luck

Based on the video at Lucious Garage http://www.lusciousgarage.com/blog/comments/prius_code_p0a93_inverter_water_pump_seized/, it seems the inverter pump is not working. Yeah, the dealer told me they're on backorder. So I bought a pump off ebay for $130. It looks like it ought to cost $10 to make. The dealership wanted to charge $200. Given that the dealer wants $200+ to install this doohickey, I'm tempted to do it myself. I know it shouldn't be too hard but I have some questions: 1. What needs to be removed to access this pump? 2. How do I drain the coolant? Can I just put it back in? 3. Is bleeding the line necessary? If so, how?

http://classic.artsautomotive.com/Prius30K.htm shows the inverter coolant drain on the transaxle. It also recommends a Matco Airlift http://www.sjdiscounttools.com/uv550000.html to prevent bubbles. But where do you get that special adapter for the coolant reservoir? Can you make do with the rubber adapters it comes with? I still don't know how much coolant fluid is in there.
