    High Pitch Whining Noise from rear motor when shifting into gear

    Thank you. Just to confirm you are referring to the 2021 MYLR link where the sound is much louder with a higher pitch whining sound right? Additionally just curious what month did you pick up your M3LR in 22? Try to figure out when did they change the vendors as it sounded very different as...

    High Pitch Whining Noise from rear motor when shifting into gear

    Hi Thank you. I have read through the link you posted. I see that others have changed the rear caliper. Per the thread it seems that even Tesla tech has different opinions. I understand there is supposed to be some noise when the actuator is activated, just wondering if it is normal when...

    2021 MYLR Dual Motor: grinding/squeal when shifting into Part

    Hi, I have a similar issue when I compare 21 MYLR (Dec built 2020) vs a 2023 MYLR, where the 21 MYLR has a much higher pitch sound and louder vs the 23. However, it has always been that way since I got the car. As such, I was wondering perhaps they change the design for the EPB motor after...

    High Pitch Whining Noise from rear motor when shifting into gear

    Thank you for responding. Were you inside the car when you were shifting gear? If so you may need to be outside and have someone else shift the gear. The e brake motor actuator will actuate to release the parking brake when you shift into gear in order for you to start driving. The sound you...

    High Pitch Whining Noise from rear motor when shifting into gear

    Thank you very much. Yes My is also 12/20 produced MYLR as well. Just to confirm, you are saying yours sounded just like mine and does not sound like the 2023 that has lower pitch whining noise with a click? Both has that actuator noise but sounded very different. If so, I am guessing Tesla...

    High Pitch Whining Noise from rear motor when shifting into gear

    Is it normal to have a whining high pitch noise when shift to gear (R or D) and shift back to park? I understand it is to release the parking brake. However, can anyone with an older MYLR (Dec 2020 and earlier) help me confirm? I am thinking Tesla changed the design. The sound is much...

    Clicking sound from rear when accelerating or regen decelerating

    Hi, did you resolve the issue? I just went in and they re torque it. it is much better but when i test drove, i can still hear it couple times, although not consistent. it is not easily reproducible anymore. I am going to wait until it is more consistent before scheduling it again. Just...

    Clunking Noise when Accelerating/Decelerating

    Hi, did they ever fixed the issue? if so, do you mind posting the invoice so I can also show it to the SC? I am having the same issue as yours now. Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Removing trunk side panel

    Hi, thanks for the nice pictures. I have a slight dent on the hatch when open the garage that this the top of the gate and would like to do a PDR so I would need to remove the trim piece. For the cinch motor cover assembly, do I simply just pull it off? Is it tape to it? would I break...

    Collision, Repair and DV/LoU Lawsuit: My Nearly 500 Days of Fun

    Hi thank you for the prompt reply. Yes I misread. It was dvgur's post. I will shoot him a message to see if I can get a better understanding. so based on your experience, in my case assuming the 3rd party comes back and admit at fault for 100% (which is unlikely, it is in parking lot)...

    Collision, Repair and DV/LoU Lawsuit: My Nearly 500 Days of Fun

    from what the body shop says that the labor of repair vs replace new may be very close, so might as well replace. it is more about the cost than the actual ability to fix it. that is what they told me.

    Collision, Repair and DV/LoU Lawsuit: My Nearly 500 Days of Fun

    Hi Thank you for posting this. I am in a similar situation and was wondering if you could help clarify. My 2021 Model Y got hit in the parking lot and I believe it is their fault. I also resided in Houston as well. My insurance is progressive and their insurance is Met Life. I have two...

    Tesla Model 3 Steering Wheel not centre on delivery

    well, I don't know if it is fixed yet as I have not driven 100 miles.... When you set up your appointment, make sure you to specify alignment as well as Centering steering wheel. Also ask them about this "adaptive calibration" thing... It sounded sketchy but I guess we will see...

    Tesla Model 3 Steering Wheel not centre on delivery

    I just called Tesla service center (I finally found a trick to call and be able to talk to a real person, and he seems like a tech person not a sales guy). I relay the issue to him and ask about this 100 miles. He says that is correct. It will take about 100 miles until it self-centered...

    2021 MY wheel alignment issue

    thanks. Just curious, prior to taking it for service, besides pulling to left, wobbling and the noise, was your steering wheel centered prior to the SC visit? or was your Steering wheel also off center.... prior to the service. I am assuming your steering wheel is now perfectly horizontal when...

    2021 MY wheel alignment issue

    Thank you. I feel like I had to go again if it does not "self-calibrate" after 100 miles. In my request, I specifically stated "the steering wheel is tilted to the right while driving straight. Doesn't feel like a pull, just off". I even told the advisor specifically after. I then told them...

    2021 MY wheel alignment issue

    Do you mind asking them about this so call "self calibration"? I think it sounded fishy. I think you should center the steering wheel first, lock it, and then do your alignment. What I am afraid what happen was they simply start the alignment process without center the steering wheel first.

    Tesla Model 3 Steering Wheel not centre on delivery

    Thanks. so that so call Adaptive calibration is probably b.s... Did they even bother telling you about this "driving for calibration?" Granted this is a 2021 Model Y so maybe they did install some newer technology? so did they charge you for it? I am thinking if the problem does not go away...

    2021 MY wheel alignment issue

    Hi, so I just had my Y in December. My steering wheel is tilt to the right. I went for an appointment and they did a four wheel alignment. However, now the the steering wheel is tilted to the left. I immediately went back and the SC says that it will take about 100 miles highway driving to...

    Tesla Model 3 Steering Wheel not centre on delivery

    Hi, I have a similar situation and was wondering did yours auto correct itself after driving about 20 minutes on a reasonably flat road? I just took delivery of Model Y and it was tilted to the right. They did a 4 wheel alignment and now the steering wheel is tilted to the left. They say it...

    How does an independent shop reset steering angle after alignment?

    Hi Ybbor, I just got my Model Y alignment done yesterday. Instead of veering to the right now it is to tilted to the left. The tech said the same thing except I need to drive 100 miles. Just wondering, did your problem fix it self after driven over 100 miles? Like it auto calibrate itself? I...
