    High Frequency Noise/Hum-New Model Y

    This is true in relation to the perimeter seal issue. If the noise insulation isn't properly installed via the seal, you hear the whine at pretty much all speeds.

    High Frequency Noise/Hum-New Model Y

    For what it's worth, I saw no reduction in the sound from 5 miles to a bit over 1500 miles on my car. Once they installed a new perimeter seal, the sound is completely gone and I only hear the high pitch squeal for a couple of seconds when gunning it full throttle from a stop. And even then, it...

    Tesla $7500 Tax Credit Coming Back?

    Right. So we're cool with the tens of billions in subsidies for Oil & Gas companies every year that have actively hurt the transition to clean energy for decades though? The market isn't really "free". It never has been. And this isn't charity either. This is an investment in retaining and...

    High Frequency Noise/Hum-New Model Y

    Haven't yet because it hasn't really been bothering me much as such. But I might give it a shot one of these days

    Wrap idea for my soon to be delivered MY in White - thoughts

    OP, you do you. Looks are subjective anyways. Though I do think that trying to have a racing stripe that only covers the hood is going to look weird because they are almost always front to back. I'm personally extremely partial to the Jim Clark Lotus era paint colors and would go with...

    High Frequency Noise/Hum-New Model Y

    The truth unfortunately is that Tesla doesn't really care. Their focus is in pushing out as many vehicles from their factories as fast as possible. Those are the numbers that matter and they don't really care if several customers have to rely on their local SCs to address issues related to...

    High Frequency Noise/Hum-New Model Y

    This used to be me every day after picking up my MYLR last month :D. Just drove into work today and it was perfect. Such a relief to get this all sorted out. Now I can go back to just enjoying the car!

    High Frequency Noise/Hum-New Model Y

    I did not try to check the perimeter seal myself but I did confirm that folding the rear seats drastically reduced the sound which indicated a sealing issue below the rear seats (where the perimeter seal is). I'm not sure if your issue is identical. With the seal issue on my car, I heard the...

    High Frequency Noise/Hum-New Model Y

    Just picked up my car today after dropping off for my service appointment yesterday morning and after they replaced the seal the sound is gone! I only hear the faintest whine when hitting the throttle at low speeds but that's very short lived and isn't bothersome at all. But the constant dentist...

    High Frequency Noise/Hum-New Model Y

    Try dropping the rear seats flat and driving around to compare if it reduces the sound. If it does, it almost certainly has to do with noise isolation between the rear motor and the cabin (which is the rear seat bench area). If that ends up being the case, you might want to try what @shzhang...

    Advice on repairing damage from minor fender-bender

    Thanks. So in this case, it was my fault but the other party has already filed a claim for their repairs. So I wasn't really sure if my not filing a claim for my damages would actually impact any potential rate hikes along the way? I figured I'd be taking some/all of the hit anyways since the...

    Advice on repairing damage from minor fender-bender

    I think you meant paintless dent repair :) . Thanks for the suggestions. I did just reach out to a highly rated local paintless dent repair person and I'll see what he says. I will say that my 12 year old Ford Sedan that I traded in did have a similar issue that I got repaired at a collision...

    Advice on repairing damage from minor fender-bender

    I have some minor damage to my Model Y LR from a fender-bender and I'm debating what to do. The certified body shop estimated ~ $1400 to repair/paint. Insurance will cover it minus the $500 deductible. It's primarily a small dent above the wheel in the metal panel as shown and some scraped paint...

    High Frequency Noise/Hum-New Model Y

    In my case it is a lot more muted if someone is stmittinf on the back seat. But quiet easy to hear when I'm the only one in the car. Have my appointment for the perimeter seal fix on Friday. We'll see how it goes.

    TESLAA - Android Auto for Tesla App

    Thanks. Yup, felt really dumb when I realized that. Still feels weird to not have audio from the browser
