    Upper Control Arm Sealing DIY?

    This greasing of the internal ball itself is extremely DIY in most cases when squeaking. There is a metal coil holding the rubber boot closed and to the housing. Get a hook tool to uncoil and drop the spring a bit, get a good syringe and inject a bunch of grease in there. DO NOT USE WD-40...

    Powerwall 2+ "incompatible" with existing powerwall 2

    Adding 4 more kw to the roof and one new pw+ to my 2 pws, and the advisor said it had to swap to normal pw2 since it was incompatible. Not only did my buddy who is a Tesla energy installer call BS, but even the sales people said it was compatible. As an EE, id never jump to conclusions on a...

    Fixing service center routing optimization issues.

    1. Don't have me drop my damn car off unless the part has actually arrived. 2. Don't schedule my drop off until you are within a day (or couple hours) of being ready to actually start the work. 3. Don't keep legally drivable cars more than 1 day unless something catastrophic is discovered or...

    New power wall 2 install - Internet connection?

    The wifi works great, but make sure it is using the lowest frequency possible as the signal needs to travel through lots of layers of building materials depending on house size. It may only support 2.4ghz, which should be fine. I notice when it rains, the bricks my gateway is attached to...

    Rear defrost strips falling off window after 17 mos. Tesla wants $820.

    Trending on that subReddit is not a problem at all. So many people added the correct info and demolished the anti-Tesla sentiment there, it is already pissing off their various echo chamber moderators - which is awesome! This window issue is an exceedingly rare one. One guy even rightly showed...

    Rear defroster ribbon cable broke

    Lets hope they continue to recycle these (or better yet, refurbish it) like they do with most of their RMA's materials.

    The End of my MY Story (at least for now)

    I good on ya for not accepting this! I cancelled both my Y orders due to the myriad quality issues Tesla thinks they are going to get away with. Not this time. I was happy to receive my perf 3 falwlessly without issues (except tear spoiler not being ready yet, which was all good) but not...

    What do you think the “Rectifications” are costing Tesla?

    Thankfully my first 3 was pretty flawless, sans a few minor issues remote rangers took care of. When I pick up my Y in a week, it will get absolutely rejected if it doesn't hit the mark for BASIC stuff like paint and panels to the level of every other car I have purchased (to be fair to Tesla)...

    2020.16 update

    This is normal. Tesla does not publish details on bug fixes in notes usually. The more decimals you see, the smaller the update and the lower liklihood of a new note amendment. Usually new notes (and major features) are in XX.X releases. XX.X.X.X will generally not

    2020.16 update

    That is absolutely phenomenal! Previously, it did indeed show the cones upright and in the correct location when knocked over. Does it point in the right direction as well?

    1200 bucks for 19 horsepower increase on Mustangs.

    Ford Mustang GT Performance Kit Revealed - Power Bump They sure are serious about that electric progress - NOT. This was likely already in the works before their announcements tbh, but they seem to be really tapped out in performance like ice in general. Teslas software approach to perf...
