    Replaced Air Filters, still musty/old smelling.

    I just had to clean the coils again because the smell came back after I replaced the filters about 4 month ago. This time I first hosed it down with some lysol spray but I also emptied a can of klima cleaner in there are well. When I replaced the filters 4 months ago I just used the lysol...

    How long does it take for a newbie to change air filter to fix smelly AC?

    My m3 stunk pretty much from the beginning. When I replaced the filters at 1 year, I hosed the coils down with lysol disinfecting spray. The smell hasn't come back. I read about lysol here but I don't remember from which poster. I drove all over town looking for the ac cleaner in a can but...

    Used dealers DO NOT understand Teslas

    I don't recall seeing the performance boost upgrade option with my sr+. however I just tried finding the upgrades section in the app and I can't find any upgrades (fsd or seat heaters) now. could be user error though.

    Software 2021.4.11 Park [sensor] Issue

    Got the update last night. Sensors seems to be working for me. What an underwhelming update, though. the only release note was "bug fixes and minor improvements" or something like that.

    Need advice on data retrieval after accident with lying Fireman

    easy. he backed into the firetruck! at least that is what I imagine the fireman/judge/whatever would say about that logic. I wish you luck. bummer you didn't have the dashcam footage. I've had to rely on it once and there were no debates what happened. however I've also went looking for...

    Aero Wheel Cap Kit

    I think I prefer the old style, multipiece ones.

    Aero Wheel Cap Kit

    are you talking about the 1 piece caps like in the op's picture? The lug nuts provided with the 18" aero wheels are ugly steel things that need some type of cover whether it is that one piece one or the individual covers that tesla sells with the aero cap kit.

    New Noob Owner- Necessary accessories?

    No. I designed a new receiver using a different wireless relay and magnetic switch. It will only open the door if it detects that it is closed. This was a requirement for me from a safety point of view. It actually took quite a bit of experimenting to find the right rx that the tesla would...

    New Noob Owner- Necessary accessories?

    mine wont. I had this very concern so I built an opener just for the tesla that will only open the door if it is closed. some openers have this capability built in. mine did but for some reason the tesla wouldn't store the open only code, just the toggle code which defeated the purpose.

    New Noob Owner- Necessary accessories?

    On cars where homelink is an option it runs in the $250 range but sometimes that also includes an auto dimming mirror. however it doesn't include a technician coming to you house and installing it in your driveway. In other words, it may be overpriced, but it isn't ridiculously overpriced. I'd...

    New Noob Owner- Necessary accessories?

    auto open is fantastic and worth the $300 imo. you train the car where it should send the signal and the distance away from that point. depending on your situation, it may take a little experimenting to find the optimal settings. in my case, our house is on the entrance corner of our...

    I wasn't aware that was a thing. At first I thought the plastic thing was a mount and thought that would look awful! but then I saw it was a installation guide. clever. thanks.

    Model 3 size - more like an Accord or more like a Civic?

    or just go to your nearest starbucks and wait for one to show up. chat up the driver and ask if you can sit in the back. :D

    12v battery issue, Tesla unsatisfactory response

    this sucks and if it were me, I'm suck it up and have them replace the battery with a tesla one. but I would demand that they put in writing that if the problem reoccurs after the battery is replaced that they will refund you for the unnecessary oem battery replacement. good luck.

    I think the cheap carpet tesla uses needs more protection than the glass screen but I also don't use screen protectors on my phones and have never scratched them.

    Tesla Model 3 vs. Honda Accord Hybrid

    You aren't getting what I'm saying. I lose around the same number miles every day whether sentry is on or off. Sentry isn't my problem, all the other loads are. Switching from ac to fan only cabin overheat protection helped a bit. I haven't tried shutting that off. Some day if I remember I'll...

    Tesla Model 3 vs. Honda Accord Hybrid

    your experience is different than mine. sentry loss is in the noise compared to the other fans/pumps/coolers/whatever is going on during the day while sitting out in the sun.

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    If you can change the air filter, you can install the diy kit. It just involves removing a few more panels and unplugging and plugging connectors. If you don't have the factory rear shelf speakers and you don't want to add them, the install is even easier. Installing rear speakers in a car that...

    Model T3 2021 - Rest foot pedal

    I know what a dead pedal is. I was stating that the plastic cover had been removed for over a year and if you buy the correct floor mats, it will cover the area where the dead pedal was thus negating the need for the little piece of plastic that tesla removed.

    The floor liners I bought cover most of the dead pedal. Seems to work well enough for me.

    My M3 victim of hit and run, replace whole bumper or?

    My bumper got hit by a trailer. The damage was way worse than that and the body shop repaired it to better than new. It wasn't all that expensive either. They should be able to fix it easily without replacing it.

    USB Storage Full Question

    I don't believe that is the case. I don't save files so I shouldn't be getting that warning, but I have a few times. It would be nice if they provided a way to delete all sentry files without having to format it periodically.
  38. B

    USB Storage Full Question

    I wish it would automatically overwrite sentry files. I just got the warning too. I just usually just format it and move on. Although you should double check that dashcam is working again you format it. I had to remove and reinsert the drive and reformat it again to get the dashcam to come back.

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    yeah, I realize that. However I found an interesting box while digging through old stuff at work. a rta with calibrated mic! I'm going to bring it home this weekend and try it out and post my results.

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    The plug on the driver's side is normal. Some of the installation videos mention it. I think the car sounds (nav, text reading, directionals, etc) use that speaker.

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    thank you for testing the factory system! I was hoping someone had the tools to do this properly and post the results. I do agree that turning on the a pillar speakers overly accentuate the highs so I also adjust the fader to the rear a bit to tone that down. my ideal setting was with the...

    Voice command to make calls not working?

    What I find strange is I didn't get an update before this started happening. Is it possible they are pushing updates without notifying us?
  45. B

    Voice command to make calls not working?

    This is weird because I stopped being able to make calls with the voice command this week to. however if I start the call on the phone it switches over to the car no problem. The volume level on streamed music has been wonky lately too. I use an android phone.

    Tesla Model 3 vs. Honda Accord Hybrid

    Mine loses about 10 miles on average sitting in the parking lot. if it is really hot that day, more. sentry mode doesn't seem to use enough energy to make a difference. it will lose the same whether it is on or off. same with cabin overheat. ac or fan only loses about the same. I haven't tried...
