    Steering wheel heat stopped working

    Yes, it was that single part that affects the horn, steering wheel heater, and windshield wiper heater. Sorry, I'm not sure what the part # is.

    My MX smells like something died in it

    Thanks! Just ordered a 3-pack. Fingers crossed.

    My MX smells like something died in it

    Update on the smell issue. We think a mouse made a nest in the frunk, and then we found it dead underneath the MX. But we can't seem to get rid of the smell completely. Tesla mobile service replaced the air filter because I thought that might help, but I didn't notice a difference. It's way...

    My MX smells like something died in it

    Oh, my. I had checked the frunk before, but not thoroughly. I just looked again, and we did find some kind of next in there. Not sure from what animal, and there's no animal in there now, but mystery solved.

    My MX smells like something died in it

    Yeah. I had an MS before and an MX now for almost 3 years. Not re-ordering, because I've had a lot of issues with the MX and the service department in Salt Lake City is a joke. I have a Rivian R1S coming next year. Ready to try something new.

    My MX smells like something died in it

    Interesting. In our case, the smell was very sudden, which makes me think this isn't the issue. Did yours come on gradually?

    My MX smells like something died in it

    My wife drove the MX to a rural location about a month ago. When she came back to the vehicle and got in (after being gone for about 5 hours), it smelled horrible. Hard to describe, but it was somewhere between rotten food and a dead animal. Yet there was no food in the MX, and even if a small...

    My MX is ready 6 months early—what now?

    Thanks. I checked and it does seem that’s an option. I guess I’ll find out how much it would cost to purchase the MX and what I could sell it for used, and then decide if it’s worth doing that vs just terminating the lease.

    My MX is ready 6 months early—what now?

    Thanks! Do you mean get a buyer before buying out the lease? And then take them to the DMV so that the title is transferred directly to them from Tesla instead of from Tesla to me and then from me to them? Curious, how long did you have your MX? Amazing you were able to sell for a profit after...

    My MX is ready 6 months early—what now?

    I have a MX with 6 months more on the lease. Given supply chain issues, I ordered a new MX (Plaid) about 2-3 months ago to make sure I had the new one before my current MX lease expires. The original delivery window I was given was Oct-Dec. But I just got a text asking me to schedule delivery...

    Poor windshield wiper performance in winter

    I need to do a mixture of OCNR and -20F wiper fluid that will not freeze down to -5F. You said a 1:1 ratio would freeze at 6F, which makes sense, but also that calculating the freezing point of different dilution ratios is more complex. What ratio would I need to keep it safe down to -5F?

    Steering wheel heat stopped working

    I'm not sure what it's called, but the service tech said it's a single part that affects the horn, steering wheel heater, and windshield wiper heater. They are finally coming to replace it on Friday after more than a month and numerous calls.

    Dangerously bad windshield wiper performance in snow/icy conditions

    Tesla came and replaced the wiper arms yesterday. We're going through an unusually warm and dry spell here in the mountains of Utah, so I haven't had a chance to test it in really bad conditions. But I can already tell, just from cleaning the windshield with the wiper fluid, that it is much...

    Dangerously bad windshield wiper performance in snow/icy conditions

    I'm still waiting for Tesla Mobile Service to come replace the wiper arms (the full arms, not just the blades). I ordered and received the PIAA Si-Tech Wiper Blade Kit, but haven't installed them yet because I want Tesla to replace the arms first. I'll keep you posted.
