    One workaround for this info in your Tesla account is "right-click" on the picture of your vehicle and select "Copy image address". Open the page at EV-CPO (https://ev-cpo.com/lookup) and paste into the box under "Enter VIN, URL, or Option Code List:". Click "Submit". You could also ask a...

    model S leaking glue under touchscreen

    +1 on going for the MCU2 "Infotainment Upgrade" rather than another screen for the MCU1. If you don't already have the LTE connectivity in your car, this comes included with the MCU2 upgrade.

    Rear Floor Mat Eagle Klaw

    Thanks for this post! I bought the set of 8 with the hole punch tool from Amazon. I used two for each of the fronts and 4 for the rear mat. I followed the video instructions to be sure to find spots on the floor that had some give in the carpet so the "klaws" could grip and not break. I used a...

    New member considerations for used P90D?

    Here is a thread that goes over that topic, and I did snip this pic from it that shows how to figure out what your battery capacity is. Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    I wonder if jumping the fuse block as per this post would keep the 12v cigarette lighter available to trickle charge through?? Power draw from accessories? 12v battery vs the big battery

    TPMS reset on V10

    Curious how fresh the batteries would be in those sensors and if the seller has the sensor reader to tell you what the strength is. It would take some of the fun out of it to buy used or old stock Baolong sensors with weak batteries. :/

    TPMS reset on V10

    From my own experience at a Discount Tire location, they had to set their hand held scanner to look for a 2013 Tesla Model S to pickup the Baolong sensor. Their scanner when set to look for a 2014 Model S was looking for the Continental sensor by default.

    TPMS reset on V10

    Here is a link that shows how the clone process is done with the TS501... but for cloning to new Autel sensors. If I understand correctly, while the TS501 can read other brand TPMS sensors it can't program other brand sensors. Found Least Expensive Compatible TPMS Sensors - $25.50/ea

    Replacing instrument cluster

    Another observation... here is the Model X cluster I bought: Notice that familiar shape that appears to be surrounded by black? I thought that maybe Tesla had used a black material to "mask off" the area of the panel that is not seen. Turns out that was not the case. Here is what I saw...

    Replacing instrument cluster

    I did my swap a couple weekends ago. Huge, HUGE thanks to @Shadious and @Bueno and @FPLPowered for their work! I ended up using a Rev G from a 2017 Model X with ~32.9k miles off of eBay. I only used the panel and not the entire cluster. My swap went pretty quick because of the ground work...

    Anyone tried Yokohama Avid Ascend GTs??

    FWIW, I run mine at 45 psi, same as recommended for the stock 19" wheels, per the Service Center for the Model S (I now see you have a M3). You may get some of that loss back by inflating a little bit more. I was coming from flat out bald 21" turbines, so these have been nothing but an upgrade...

    20" Model X Slipstream Wheels on Model S

    Correct. Your 2013 and my 2014 were the original Baolong sensors and receiver. To use the MX sensors (Continental) in your 2013, you would need to have an upgrade to the rest of your car to a Continental receiver AND have the car's software updated by a Service Center to recognize the new gear...

    Replacing instrument cluster

    How are you guys disconnecting the 12v before you do this? Would the "Power Off" (vs. "Car Off" status) via the MCU be enough?

    I can't reset the TPMS error message on my Model S

    One thing you might try: go to your local tire shop and have them walk the 4 corners of the car and see if that last 4th sensor battery has failed. They have a hand held device that can read what the sensor is transmitting including battery strength, temp, PSI, etc.... or no reading at all...

    Clunking sound is costing me a bundle to fix out of warranty

    Had the service done today, happy to report the noise appears to be gone. The diagnostic fee was applied to the work, making it a $97.50 job (plus my previous washers/nuts purchase). If I have as good of luck as @gaswalla and only need this service every 90k miles or so... I'll be satisfied as...

    Rear Axle Clicking

    32mm is what my 2014 takes on the rear nut. I don't have a front drive unit, so no data there. :/

    Rear Axle Clicking

    Do you happen to know what your SC hourly rate is? $87 works out to be suspiciously close to 15 minutes of work x2 (1 each side) @ $175 per hour. I was recently quoted $97.50 for the same job, but with our SC rate jacked up to $195 per hour.

    V10 on MCU1

    Additional little bits of info via Tesla's blog post that has some non-US mentions to features: Introducing Software Version 10.0 But as for the thread topic... no direct mentions of MCU1.

    V10 on MCU1

    I'm assuming the Tesla US workaround with the Slacker contract topic is a "BYOA - Bring Your Own Account" approach with Spotify: Discover Software Version 10.0 The Slacker piece doesn't go away. Spotify is just made available to those with their own Premium Account to use it.

    TPMS retrofit for older Model S

    That job has been previously quoted by Tesla for less than 4 hours. Take a look at the thread with the estimates/invoices and have your SC explain how the job takes longer now. From those past write ups, the 4 wheel sensors are a good chunk of the parts cost... which you already have. So the...

    TPMS for 2017

    They can be made/programmed to be Gen 1 or Gen 2 depending on what system is in the Tesla you want to put them in. They can also be programmed for other vehicles, so getting the specifics beyond just the frequency is where the need to program them to a specific vehicle comes in. The first part...
