    Spacers needed. 2024 model y with 20” induction wheels.. any suggestions on what to buy and what configuration for front and rear to flush, no poke

    Photos I have seen don't give you much chance. Not much in the way of studs visble and they are actual nuts with tapers as opposed to oversize decorative jobbies with a tapped blind hole.

    Water entering into Passenger footwell from under glovebox, with fix

    And here I was thinking it was for if you drove past the fertilizer works, exact opposite, cut off all.outside air and filter to the max the inside air. They could have called it De-Gas and I might have twigged they meant Fart Exhaust.

    Best mode for HVAC to prevent mold buildup

    https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/water-entering-into-passenger-footwell-from-under-glovebox-with-fix.329281/ Colour me suspicious all mouldy filters happen this way.

    Help me decide Model Y performance or Model 3 performance

    Tested out hold v roll. Stuff all difference , if any at all, down to 3mph and then it rolls. Kind of unnerving in traffic having gotten used to controlled stops so hard to concentrate on exactly the difference in low low speed auto braking.

    Best mode for HVAC to prevent mold buildup

    See the other thread on water entering the passenger side via the A/C air intake? I think that may be the source rather than any mystery condensation collecting under the filter.

    Tesla saying my warranty is voided due to my wrap on my car

    I wouldn't use hot glue. It would take carnage to get it off again. Get some 3M "super hold" or something. Double sided rubber 'tape'. Comes in a blister pack with RED backing. It is incredibly tacky stuff but the rubber will give up if you pull on it hard enough. A half inch of it cut in three...

    Water entering into Passenger footwell from under glovebox, with fix

    2 and 2, this is the source water of all the mouldy filters all along???
  8. Q

    Help me decide Model Y performance or Model 3 performance

    I looked into it all in depth before getting my LR dual motor. Pretty sure you have to be at a recognized race track to get Track Mode to engage. T could sell a bunch of 40mph speed limited off road one wheel breaking upgrades. Way more capable off road than mere traction control with open...

    Spacers needed. 2024 model y with 20” induction wheels.. any suggestions on what to buy and what configuration for front and rear to flush, no poke

    That's hard to do. And what would he measure anyway??? The tyre sits outside of the rim. You can't see the wheel looking down on the vertical. The guard tapers away from the wheel at the top. No idea if it does that symmetrically but unlikely. He would have to pick a point to measure back...

    Does the 12 volt accessory plug in the trunk area of the Y stay active if car is turned off?

    I doubt I will live long enough to see mains power available in the cabin while driving down the road. I am not even all that old.

    Picture of your Model Y - Right Now!

    I thought I should do PPF but I changed my mind when they quoted me around 6k US. Just for PPF.
  12. Q

    Help me decide Model Y performance or Model 3 performance

    True. I think it is horses for courses and he got it fine. If you are mainly about the raw acceleration the lowered suspension and the battery management for track use are extras you don't need. I believe if the P car would accept your word that you are at the track the traction control...

    Best mode for HVAC to prevent mold buildup

    Seems to be a stuck on plastic frame support. I am picking the filter medium has been antifungal treated. But I like your gumboot scenario anyway.

    $11,016.42 repair for what seemed like a minor rear-ending

    They get produced in the factory with fracturing. Some of it is fatal and those ones go back in the pot. The rest are in non critical positions and carry on.
  15. Q

    car not turning off automatically

    There are limited ways the car can fail to to shut down. They need investigating properly. If T were onto it ithey would be giving OP a tech to call direct next time it happens so they can remote check in and see what the car is thinking it is doing.

    Car slept for 4 days, upon wake up screen is black, vents off, cant drive. Reboot recovered it.

    Did you remember to give the brake pedal a good long stomp?
  17. Q

    UK Charging

    The good thing about the Tesla unit is it is hardwired into your board on its own circuit. Then it is set up to take the max your board can give it with its own breaker and RCD. Very safe and efficient. If you are wanting a large charge you need a power plan with a big window of off peak rates...

    Best mode for HVAC to prevent mold buildup

    Which filter is this? I could pull mine out and paint with the liquid tape.
  19. Q

    my longest drive so far (274 miles)

    Every manufacturer makes it up as they go. The Michelins have a long transition from road tread to up and down sidewall. The Nexens do not look anything like that. The road tread actually measured 255 not that it has a direct bearing on the rated width. As far as I can work out the spec'd...

    I've enagaged lawyers in an attempt to recover FSD cost (Australian owner)

    What was happening in 2022 that inspired the recruitment of said Rottweilers? And is that before or after the "we don't fight losing cases" pronouncement?

    If they want to escalate to Arbitraion so be it.
  22. Q

    Aggressive Behaviour towards EV's

    The main thing I have noticed since going EV is a shortage of tailgaters. Ford Rangers worst offenders. I think the regen brake lights put them off.

    Have you read your warranty yet?

    Spacers needed. 2024 model y with 20” induction wheels.. any suggestions on what to buy and what configuration for front and rear to flush, no poke

    It's reading like your car has aftermarket wheels on it now? If not, you could look at other 20's on standard Y suspension and see what offset is on those. As far as the rim lip goes they will inform you where you want your Inductions to sit. Each mm of offset reduction from 45mm is equivalent...

    car not turning off automatically

    Just because a problem can't be seen with a scanner it doesn't absolve T from the obligation to fix it. You can't say there isn't a problem when the car won't lock.

    Link? I have seen posts of him claiming to only ever go to court to win, otherwise settle.

    Does the 12 volt accessory plug in the trunk area of the Y stay active if car is turned off?

    Now I am wondering how much of that applies to older lead acid actual 12V systems?
  28. Q

    my longest drive so far (274 miles)

    We measured the stock Michelins yesterday. The reason they look so stretched is the road going tread is well shy of the 255. If you want to know how tall a tyre stands it is aspect ratio as a percentage of nominal width, doubled, convert inches, and add rim diameter. Conveniently, going up and...

    21 Model Y 12 volt Battery Quits

    I got told the accessory power comes direct from the big battery converter, not via the "12" volt, so that wouldn't do you much good?
  30. Q

    car not turning off automatically

    That's why it needs to escalate beyond simpleton problem solvers to upper management.

    2024.20.1 w/Matrix Headlights

    Active matrix lights are very obvious when driving in dark places. Even if the blue Auto control option is turned off you will see the world lit up by pixels. I doubt there is any way for them to mimic a regular single bulb in reflector light.

    New Car with Black Paint, are automatic car washes that bad?

    That was a great Mythbusters episode.

    I've enagaged lawyers in an attempt to recover FSD cost (Australian owner)

    I wonder how many QC's will be there. T is supposed to only fight winning cases and they can't afford to lose this one.

    If you read your warranty, that's what you have to do to be acting in good faith.

    Tesla Model Y complète Shutdown due to 3rd Party EV charger

    You can't have it both ways. Tesla denied to the OP the car had any fault. Providing no evidence or a supporting statement, that doesn't help the OP battle the charging co. If they have no liability it would not cost them anything, so why not?

    Escalate until something is done.

    Tesla Model Y complète Shutdown due to 3rd Party EV charger

    T are leaving him all alone to take on the charging co with no information. All he can say to charging co is " your charger blew up my car". He could be in a much better position, ie not in a jam, if he could say "T says there was no fault in my car before your charger blew up and blew up my car".

    You aren't getting satisfaction so you need to escalate.

    Custom Lock Chimes

    I have had my walk away chime set to a civilised cheepcheep for a few days. The lock confirmation sound was set to Off a week or so back. So how come my horn tooted the neighbourhood last night when I used the keycard? Hadn't had that for ages. I just checked and LCS is still off.

    80% Charge is Only Showing 168 Mile Range? '22 MYP w/ 17K miles

    Very! Almost like the power co had ripple control on. Or the whole.place has been wired up wrong. Neither seems likely and both untenable.

    New Car with Black Paint, are automatic car washes that bad?

    Guess grunge reflects less radar than polished paint?

    my longest drive so far (274 miles)

    Don't bet, look it up. My old tyre size is 235/60 18. It's significantly taller than stock.
  44. Q

    Texas heat

    I am guessing it's aerodynamics. Amost sheer from the wiper blades to the tail. It's a piece of work. Steel roof panels have creases to get the stiffness up. Those will create little vortices. Evey bit counts.
  45. Q

    Tesla Model Y complète Shutdown due to 3rd Party EV charger

    You may well be correct but it's bad business to not simply say that themselves. If there is nothing to hide they can simply make the claim that the fuse blew due to outside influences and there is no data indicating anything was wrong up to that point in time. Instead they are putting the OP in...
  46. Q

    Does the 12 volt accessory plug in the trunk area of the Y stay active if car is turned off?

    My 2024 shuts down the accessory power after less than ten minutes of exiting the vehicle. Accessories that were drawing power go dead. As mentioned, camp mode with no A/C and minimal fan will stop sleep mode happening. Mind the draw on the accessory socket. It's not a lot of power and for...
