    What fluid to use for drive unit differential?

    My SC says there is NO requirements to change differential oil at any time. I asked. They said ""we don't do that"" Anyone have the page in any Tesla manual to prove them wrong???? Help me out, I can't find it

    Changing fluid in the Gear box , part or Model S drive train.

    I cannot find the actual real Tesla service manual page that states change differential oil at one year?? My SC says they don't do that. But. A NEW differential should have oil changed . All differential make metal shavings , period.

    Infotainment Upgrade

    It is fantastic fix for an antique like mine. Both my screens were leaking, SW was horrible. For $1600 it was deal. I didn't pay $500 for radio. Just not worth 500. That's the rip off part of the deal. Draper told me the new computer was latest with new SW. I see that. Some options don't...

    Refurbished Battery Dying already?

    No. It was replaced under warranty. One month left on warranty. I can't find the post on here that said if Tesla replaced the pack, it had a two year warranty? Even if car was out of warranty. If they give me a $22k quote, I'll take it to Gruber.

    There will never be a good range estimate. There are too many variables. I'm over 200k, and thousands of super charges all over the USA. I got a reconditioned pack. Didn't change anything. Have fun, the new cars go so much farther than me and charge instantly. Enjoy.

    Is there an update on out of warranty battery replacement cost

    Silver string,. Battery pack failure is a crap shoot. I think main factors are weather and charging. I think keeping max daily charge to 75% , not lower than 25% seems to put less strain on pack. Also plugging it in every night helps as the owners manual says. Mine went 160k before a module...

    That was a great number in kw in cold weather. Remember 85 charge gate. I've super charged in over 25 states and 500 times. I keep a log of every supercharge. None have ever been the same, even on the many trips to DC and back.
