    Model X Front Windshield Wiper Blades Not User Serviceable?

    I ordered three, 30" and cut to 28". Order item "B". The package just arrived. Good quality rubber, each refill should last at least a couple of years. These blades were not cheap @ $2.30 CDN. each, just good value.

    Inside brake pads seized

    Thanks, Dark Cloud, I didn't think of checking the parking brake calipers. Will do it next Spring with Winter wheel change over.

    Inside brake pads seized

    I am waking up this post because I think I have information helpful to our Tesla community. I recently checked the brakes on my 2016 Signature Tesla X, 80,000 Km. Upon inspection, I found that both inner front pads were seized in the calipers and it required removing the calipers to punch out...

    Model X Front Windshield Wiper Blades Not User Serviceable?

    Waking up this post. I have a 2016 Model X. I purchased one set for wipers from Tesla in 2018. I take the old set apart and exchange the refill blades with a new ones purchased for $2.30 each from Aliexpress.

    Model X Front Windshield Wiper Blades Not User Serviceable?

    My Tesla X is now 2 years old. I am considering replacing the wiper blades in the near future. I have taken one apart, cut off 1/4 in. of rubber and taken the piece to Walmart to find a manufacturer who makes or uses the same rubber pattern. I found one but unfortunately I cannot remember which...

    Changing fluid in the Gear box , part or Model S drive train.

    I was told by Tesla service technician that there is no "fill line" marked on the case so don't overfill. Again, does anyone know the amount of fluid to be added after draining? Rumour is 1.4 quarts but I doubt that all transmissions would have the same volume of fluid.

    Changing fluid in the Gear box , part or Model S drive train.

    Bump. Ok, I am receiving mixed information on the type of oil that needs to be changed in the Model S & X motor gear boxes. Some say it is Dexron VI others say it is Mobil SHC 629 synthetic gear oil. The quantity is 1.4 quarts each but does anyone know which oil to use? My model X is coming up...

    Model X lug nut torque specification

    @ohmman. Four months for a response? Everyone must be on Tesla time. To answer your question, yes, 175nm or 129'lbs. Just received my vehicle which now has 48 miles on the odometer & I wish to torque to specs after reaching 50 miles. I went to the owner's manual to determine the required...

    Any Model X's delivered in Eastern Canada Yet?

    This vehicle is the way of the future. The acceleration is astonishing. One has to experience it to appreciate the difference between an ICE vehicle. If anyone reading this thread, presently does not have the financial resources to purchase a Tesla, all is not lost. The Model 3 is coming soon...

    Our "multi-coat signature red" is turned out to be "multi-coat signature red with gold metallic flecks."! What do I think? OMG! again.:)
