    Every drive now takes an hour longer :-(

    Dear Tesla Thanks for releasing games getting my family hooked on Fallout Shelter in the car. Because of this, getting to places takes longer in an EV. - soccer practice takes 2hrs now, 1 hour on the field 1hour playing FS - food runs used to take 15min, now they’re 1:15 I get police peeking...

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    Im not sure how different the trunk lights can be, its only 2 wires. I took a photo of my rear light connector from Hanshow v3, see if this matches yours.

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    There technically was never a v2, I assume Hanshow just leapfrogged to v3 because their competitor came out with a v2 of their lift gate. V1 and v3 are essentially the same however the wiring is different. I have both cables and V1 wiring was a bit harder to install and V1 didnt give you the...

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    I think I already know the answer to this but does the Hanshow work with one powered strut?

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    Hand show has been good to me, spent a good few weeks troubleshooting my install over FaceTime and even sent me a v1 cable for so I could diagnose my issue. I’ve been very satisfied with their support, I’d suggest you hit them up on WhatApp, you should have gotten an Aftersale WhatsApp contact...

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    If you’re latch isn’t catching then the Power hook loop on the car side is not lined up correctly with latch on the trunk lid. I find it’s easiest to line up the latch by folding down the rear seats and close the trunk and watch where it lines up. Check out the electrified garage YT install...

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    Yes, when the trunk I is open the touch screen AND the app flashes between Open and close (about once per second) when the touch screen is flashing open you can’t do anything, however once it flashes close you hit it and it closes the trunk.

    Accessing third brake light...had an insect in it

    wouldn't consider it "easy" to access the third brake light but It's doable if you're handy but it is a pain in the azz. The rear light is attached to the rear trunk deck and to remove the rear deck you'll have to remove the top side panels (the ones that cover the rear airbags) as well as the...

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    Not yet @bondo, it was too cold in my area to tackle it this weekend. When the trunk is close I cant see the gap in the bumper but its still bugging the hell out of me and I wanna get it back to normal ASAP.

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    ---let me know if you find a good video about this, cause I still have a gap. I saw a video this morning that says there are some snap hooks under the car has to be removed as well so maybe for me those tabs arent lined up which is why I have a gap....gotta figure that out this weekend.

    Lifting the 3

    Take your pucks with you...I've had a few nails on the 3, none of the shops I took it to had there own pucks or any idea how to patch under the foam, (which looks like this)..all they have to do is pull it away, patch under it and glue it back down.

    HANSSHOW Trunk Liftgate v3 install

    I watched every install video while I was waiting on the unit to arrive, they are all old and wrong...none of them showed you how to route the V3 wiring. I'll need to pull off the bumper again this weekend to adjust it so I'll take some videos. Basically the strut wire routes under the tail...
