    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    Right, just roll over for papa Elon, because Tesla has never made a single mistake at all when manufacturing a car: https://mashable.com/article/tesla-model-y-3-bolt-recall https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a38641024/tesla-model-3-trunk-backup-camera-recall/...

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    Until we have confirmation we can't be sure, but it definitely looks like there is moisture and a leak on the hose as well as the CV boot where the hose makes contact with it.

    coolant leak in rear drive unit (12k miles on odometer) and Tesla says someone touched it so the warranty NOT applicable

    Some of the responses in this thread are doing a lot of gymnastics. So one option is that a previous owner of a car with only 12k miles was so interested in how their car worked they put it on a hoist and poked around and moved a hose for no reason, lifted, put spacers, entered the car in to a...

    Yeah. How about when they were using wooden molding bought from Home Depot to hold the ac condenser on Discovered: Tesla Using Fake Wood Trim For Cooling System Or the people who’s windshield washer hoses haven’t been connected. Or anyone who’s had misalignment of panel issues. If anytime...

    Dent caused closing door on seat belt buckle

    This is not true at all. All three seatbelts stained the tops of my rear seats. There's also tons of people who had the belts stain their third row seats. https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/seatbelt-burn-in-on-white-seats.169307/...

    Map road rendering issue

    I’ve had this issue pop up recently where certain roads have a thick white line overlayed on them while others don’t. It sometimes even starts randomly on certain roads like this. No idea how to resolve it.

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    It depends on the model. They make a base single motor version that has around 167hp and 258tq. Obviously that version is designed for efficiency not speed. Then there’s a single motor with 225hp and 258tq model, a the top trim is a dual motor 320hp and 466tq model (4.5 sec 0-60). The upcoming...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Just tested mine out. Got session start errors on the first one and on my first try at the second. I took more time to try and seat the adapter better and then it worked. No warmup or preconditioning and it’s charging at 70kw on a 150kw station at 65%. These electrify america cables sure are a...

    Where does this go?

    The doors are held on by two metal screws in the rear and 3 up front. One missing clip, even if one is missing won’t be a big deal. In all likelihood they probably put the door panel in the trunk while working on it and that came off. If it was a fresh clip there would be a white tip on it...

    Where does this go?

    It’s a door clip that holds the door panel to the door frame.

    Not to the line, to the connector. Watch the video attached above.

    Ran over something now $17k bill

    If this is similar to what I’ve seen in the past it’s not that the line is the issue but where it connects to the battery is. Tesla designed it so the connector, by their standards, cannot be repaired. Any damage to that would require a complete battery replacement.

    CCS Adapter - ?

    I switched to TOU in FL and while it saves money, it's debatable if it's worth it over the inconvenience factor. Summer peak times are noon - 9pm, so have the AC set to 79 during that time and avoid running any of the big appliances, but it's a pain because it does get toasty sometimes and not...

    Plain Model Y customers punished AGAIN June 2022

    None of these things are even on the radar or coming. People have been speculating about matrix headlights for a year and a half for LR models and there’s no indication they’ll be added. Aside from some new SR models out of Austin which are slower and have less range than the current LR there...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    I ordered one mainly as a backup option. When I took my car for a holiday trip last year the 1 super charger near my destination had a 45 minute wait before I could get it. There's an EA station close by so with the adapter I can stop there instead if there's a long wait. One of the guys on...

    Model Y hit and run while parked - total loss or reparable?

    I could be wrong but I think it's actually the opposite. The rear casting is all part of the unibody and would be nearly impossible to replace as it's welded/riveted to the entire structure of the vehicle. In fact, even slight damage to it that isn't repairable would likely total an entire car...

    8% degradation after 9k miles, wtf?

    I’m right around 10k. I was seeing lower estimates around 300 so I’ve tried to do some BMS recalibration by doing deep discharges and charging back to 90% and letting it sit at various states in between. I’m around 310-311 now. I also plugged my car back into the scan my Tesla app for the...

    Tesla Model Y Standard Range AWD to be priced at $59,990 USD

    There’s pros and cons to both sides. Yes there are certain dealers taking advantage of the current market and it’s easy to find those and point them out, especially the extreme examples, but there’s also dealers who will sell at MSRP. Even 4 years ago my friend wanted a Raptor and every ford...

    Florida FPL Time of Use Rate

    I can tell you that currently I'm saving maybe $15-20 a month using TOU (my bills are in the $120-$150 range right now). As the weather warms up more I'll see how things go. I keep my air set to 78-79 during the day, but during the peak of the summer if the AC has to kick in a lot during the day...

    Tesla Model Y Standard Range AWD to be priced at $59,990 USD

    Got my LR for $50,500. No chance I would pay the current going rates for a LR or that much for a SR. Yes the Supercharger network is a big plus, but realistically I've only taken my car on one road trip. 99.9% of my charging is done at home. For that price I would get an Ioniq 5 which still has...

    Loose Rearview Mirror

    If you remove the smaller plastic cover the torx screw is holding the aluminum piece the mirror twists on to. I also cannot remember exactly where on the mirror it was but if you look around it might be inside of a hole in the piece of aluminum.

    Just got my model Y, should I take it to the service?

    Agreed, unless the panel alignments are causing some other issue I’d leave the hatch alone because their solution for that usually creates some damage to the hatch hinges that would have to be painted over. Way more hassle than it’s worth. But I would totally have them at least fix the paint...

    Water leaking from under glovebox in freezing conditions. Service center didn't do anything. Now what?

    Look at the similar threads linked below this. It’s something to do with the air box for the bio weapons filter not being secured properly and outside water leaking in.

    Florida FPL Time of Use Rate

    Also I showed the regular rates and the tou adjustments. You’ll have to figure out if it’s worth it for you. You save 1/2 of the standard cost during off peak but the on peak rate is more than double. So you really need to be diligent about keeping your on peak load to a minimum. If you’re not...

    2-piece Roof Sunshade

    It looks like they've kept the same product page for the 2 piece that they had been using for the one piece. That creates confusion because there are no reviews new enough to be for the new two piece, only the old one piece ones.
