    Model 3 door opened by itself while driving

    In a thrilling conclusion, the service advisor replaced the puddle light underneath the driver side door. I don't know if it's a 100% open and shut case, but apparently the puddle lights are the "end point" of the electronic circuit in the door, which connects the window, light, and door open...

    Model 3 door opened by itself while driving

    This occurred to me as well! Coincidentally I had a tech come out last month to inspect my passenger door which was always sticking in the open position. The driver side door didn’t have any issues at the time. In any case what makes me think this might not be the cause is that there was a...

    Model 3 door opened by itself while driving

    I was on the way to the store this morning driving in my 3 and about 60 seconds away from my home, the driver side door open mechanism triggered by itself! As if I had pressed the door open button, triggering the solenoid. However I had both my hands on the wheel. Luckily I was pulling up to a...

    MCU1 NHTSA Recall

    Has anyone in Canada (specifically Ontario/GTA) heard from Tesla for scheduling the eMMC daughterboard replacements? I received the recall notice/update in March, but not a peep since. My 2016 S UI is VERY slow and would love to have that get solved. It feels like using an iPhone 3GS over the...

    Tesla recommends cleaning and lubricating all brake calipers every 12 months or 20,000 km

    That's the correct address. You can check out his set up on the FB site: Wheeler Automotive

    Tesla recommends cleaning and lubricating all brake calipers every 12 months or 20,000 km

    An update on this--I contacted Cyril in Innerkip and booked an appointment earlier this month, and I'd say he lives up to the high expectations that I had from reading up on others' experiences. It was worth taking the day off to drive to his shop (from GTA). He did an inspection and also...

    Tesla recommends cleaning and lubricating all brake calipers every 12 months or 20,000 km

    I just chose tires & wheels, close enough. Besides I am fairly certain that someone on the other end reviews and classifies as required, they will at least judge if they can send a mobile ranger out first, and only have you go to a service center if absolutely necessary.

    Tesla recommends cleaning and lubricating all brake calipers every 12 months or 20,000 km

    Estimate I got for brake service in Toronto (Lawrence) last week was $225 + HST. However after the vehicle was brought in, they wanted me to replace front calipers, pads, rotors, and rear rotors at a cost of $1900 o_O Last time I did the brake service was in 2019, a bit less than 2 years. I...

    Another front suspension control arm failure

    I am dealing with some suspension issues on my early 2016 MS and came across this thread. I don't know when they started producing the revised parts, but I can tell you that Tesla replaced these parts on my vehicle in June 2018 (car was just over 2 yrs old at this point). Looks like it was...

    3rd party Tesla mechanic in GTA (Toronto)

    I have some brake and suspension work that’s being recommended for my model S and would like some “second opinions”. Are there any reputable mechanics in GTA who specialize or work on Tesla vehicles?

    Power steering issue

    Update: So the fix was indeed the same as many of the posters in this thread. The part is listed below, and was $280 CAD for the part and 45 mins labour @ $175/hr. I-SHAFT STEERING LINK - NON ISOLATOR - LOWER (1030622-00A) They also suggested about $2k in brake work (replace front brakes, rear...

    Power steering issue

    Just had this happen to my 2016 70D, 88,000kms. Steering feels very loose when turning at low speed, and will suddenly become tighter as I keep turning the wheel. Then have to manually pull the wheel back to centre whereas before it would straighten out by itself. Hope this doesn't hurt the...
