    So the suit is almost drawn up. Seems that under WA Law, that Gross Negligence also applies. Tesla, Inc and Cameron Hino are defendants. I went to the Lynnwood dealership Friday... and the service advisors always covertly IM Service Manager Nick when I arrive, and so he kindly comes down with...

    Apologies to Mods. Thanks for clarifying SO16. MP3Mike I'd like to answer but can't blunt the upcoming action. It's why I've been so oblique, apologies. I've been expecting it to come to this. Although surprisingly the Lynnwood SC hasn't discovered this thread, Tesla knows about it. My...

    Mods have deleted a reply to my most recent post. I would ask, Why? The reason is because a certain mod here works for Tesla. It's no secret. And I find that that D.E. et al have been trying furiously to get through to Tesla to warn them about me, to no avail since most channels are cut...

    Cameron absolutely will not take a simple measure which I'd explained in detail to his boss, Service Manager Nick. This was all I asked -- it is something that's rigged so only they can do it, and it fell out of a mandatory Service Bulletin they'd done on the car, carelessly. Also they'd...

    Impressive chunk of emotional and hyperbolic flaming there, D.E. You have invested alot of time and anger in that. But, -I-, am "lashing out"?! Remember, I am not your ex-husband.

    Oh darn, D.E. has given my posts multiple 👎. Now what am I going to do? I will hand over the domain and database to someone who can demonstrate that they can wrangle httpd, php, and mediawiki. It obviously needs some repairs now but I don't care anymore. I expect I will be taking legal...

    dannycamps, I guess there are enough detailed complaints about service centers and I don't see any use in adding to them. It's tiresome. I'm a democratic socialist and have always hired staff exclusively from the DoC. These guys are almost without exception, damaged people, and recovering...

    trayloader, those images are of a natural medical condition called 'microcephaly'. That happens to be Schlitze and Pepper. And that is what the new redesign of the S looks like to me. 1=1, these are just facts. I didn't use it disrespectfully in any way. They had a right to live and show...

    I'm a developer and carry machines and equipment to my jobsites all the time. It's Monsoon Season here in the PacNW and my expensive equipment would be damaged. With a pickup in bad weather you're very light in the back and easily lose traction and spin out or get stuck. Also to me, pickups...

    After many years following Tesla and in 2014 rebuilding a P85D, I've finally lost interest in Tesla after a terrible experience at the Lynnwood, WA Service Center. They are not honest. Yes, there's the Supercharger network, yes there's "self-driving". But I am just not feeling it anymore...

    Alternative Repair Options by State

    I've done a forum search but the link which comes up with this title "can't be found", lol. I have welded contactors and simply do not have time to do this work myself. Looking for a shop which can replace the contactors with inconel, in the Pacific Northwest. Anyone know?

    Can anyone help with enabling supercharging?

    Anyone know whether CHaDEMo DC charging works when S/C is disabled on a salvage? Used to be they were the same setting, but theyn absolutely shouldn't be.

    Tesla toolbox issue

    I've upgraded the OS and security, but Ziply Fiber screwed me on internet access. I'm still tethering to phone for laptop but LAN is inaccesible. The wiki should be back up this weekend hopefully, as I get time. I'm about to leave this forum, but the wiki will remain up for a good while.

    Where to get wheel studs for Model S?

    Studs can get damaged. But it's an easy fix if you can find the parts. Check with OReilly's, NAPA, Autozone. Take in a sample if it's not in their database, and they can match it up. They'll have the nuts too. Jack the car and prop with a stand. Remove the wheel, brake caliper(s) and...

    Nonsense. Unless your hygiene habits leave something to be desired, or you've been sticking it in questionable places. I haven't had a wound get infected in 60 years, and there have been plenty, with no antobacterial treatment to all but major ones. Please use a washrag when you bathe...

    I have some clear fluid from front of car that tastes acidic. Any ideas what it might be ?

    No need to worry about that. Although there are lots of freeable ions in rat urine it can't compete with lithium. Maybe though when lithium gets too expensive? The good thing is a rat can reproduce 22 days after its born. Its gestation period is also 22 days, with about 12 ratlets being born...

    That's not actually from the car at all. Rats often take up residence in the cavities and like to chew through wires because their teeth are always growing so they need to gnaw. But you knew that, being in St. Louie. What you've found is rat urine which can be colors ranging from transparent...

    Bah, Ziply Fiber (ISP) screwed me when my ONT went out.

    Drive unit damaged after driving in heavy rain -- SC won't cover under warranty

    Depending on what year your car is, there's a vent hole in the top of the DU which could have been the entry point. Later models (late 2014 and after, if memory serves) have a venting cap which prevents water entry.

    Politics or fanboyism has nothing to do with it. Playing nice and having manners does. I'm a native Texan and lived there for 50 years so I understand the culture, but southern gentlemen do not tear somebody's face off without due cause. This guy -can't- be an Austin native, unless his...

    2016 Model S subframe cracked

    When one accident renders a car unrepairable... it can only be scrapped. Note this is in contrast with frame damage which is often localized and repairable. This is a significant value reduction across the line. You'll see.

    Just about any accident will tweak the cast parts and/or pack, ruining the car and making it unrepairable. This change greatly reduces its value IMHO.

    If memory serves, that is a 3G module. I don't know whether the same GSM daughtercards are used on your side of Earth as are here. Presumably you are using 3G SIMs and not LTE ("4G")? Here in the 'States 3G is almost phased out. Maybe it has gone away in RU too, or at least in St P?
