AFTER APPROXIMATELY 4 OIL CHANGES THE OIL ACCESS DOOR BREAKS OFF THE VEHICLE. THE OIL HAS BEEN CHANGED 9 TIMES IN MY PRIUS AND AFTER 4 OIL CHANGES THE OIL ACCESS DOOR HAS NOW BROKEN OFF TWICE. EACH TIME I HEARD IT BREAK LOOSE LIKE I DROVE OVER SOME DEBRIS AND I COULD SEE IT IN MY REARVIEW MIRROR GO FLYING ACROSS THE HIGHWAY LANES. THE OIL ACCESS DOOR DOES NOT HAVE A HINGE. IT IS ALL PLASTIC AND IS BENT/FOLDED TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE OIL FILTER AND DRAIN PLUG. I CHANGED THE OIL THE FIRST 4 TIMES AND THE DEALER COMPLAINED I WAS DOING SOMETHING WRONG. THE DEALER WAS RELUCTANT TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE ENGINE UNDERCOVER ASSEMBLY, STATING THEY WOULD ONLY DO IT ONE TIME. THE DEALER CHANGED MY OIL THE NEXT 4 TIMES AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN RIGHT BEFORE I SCHEDULED MY 5TH OIL CHANGE. AFTER THE SECOND OCCURRENCE, I RETRIEVED THE OIL ACCESS DOOR TO CONFIRM SINCE THE VEHICLE IS SO LOW YOU CANNOT SEE IT UNDER THE CAR UNLESS IT IS RAISED UP.
