    Wiki Model X Refresh Issues Thread

    I highly doubt it's in between the panes of glass as I'm sure it's a robotic manufacturing process with no humans involved. You might try some mildly abrasive glass cleaner (Amazon.com) as this stuff is great at cleaning off things stuck to glass.

    I guess I can try "Joe Mode" and I did assume the change in volume it was part of the adaptive sound leveling. It just seems like their sound leveling processing isn't very good.

    I've searched the forums to see if anyone else is complaining about this issue, but haven't found any hits. Has everyone else noticed the inconsistent volume of the turn signal sound? Sometimes it's at a normal volume and sometimes the turn signal click sound is deafening loud. I hope they...

    I've recently noticed the same ripples on my glass on both the driver's and passenger's side in the same area.

    Yes, I can hear the same wheezing sound sometimes when at a stoplight or parked. I think it may be the HVAC motors adjusting the internal louvers for the airflow, as someone else mentioned.

    Curtain Airbag Recall - 2021-22 Model X

    I just received the following email from Tesla today about a recall for my Model X: Tesla has decided to proactively recall certain model year 2021-2022 Model X vehicles to replace both front-row curtain airbag assemblies. Our manufacturing records indicate that your vehicle, 7SAXCBE60NF329XXX...

    Has anyone run into an issue with their keyfob battery dying? Since I'm the only driver, I keep one fob in a drawer in my house and use the other. A week after getting the car the door would no longer open or respond to the fob. I replaced the battery and everything worked fine again. I just...

    The mobile service guy thought that too and tried to remove (unsuccessfully) the back cover. He also tried to make sure it was banged in as tightly as possible. This didn't fix the creaking at all. It really seems like it is something inside to upper portion of the seat.

    Just to follow up on my previous thread, I had the mobile service guy come out and look at the driver's seat creaking and center console issues. They are just going to order a new driver's seat and entire center console as they don't think they'd be able to take the seat apart to figure out...

    I have this too. At first I thought it was the tires rumbling on rough pavement, but it does seem to happen on all surfaces right after starting the car so I assume it's the air compressor filling up the air tank.

    Yes, this seems to be an issue with the new door and actuator design. My 2016 Model X didn't have this problem. Not sure it's fixable without redesigning the doors or using different actuators. I've just gotten used to slamming these new doors or making sure they are open beyond a foot before...

    I really hope this isn't the "shudder" issue that's been around forever with the Model X (and Model S to some extent). My 2016 Model X had 5 sets of half-shafts replaced for this issue, and it would always come back. I'm really hoping this new Raven+ suspension in the 2022's doesn't have the...

    Nope, definitely from the upper seat area. You can even use your hands when not sitting in the seat and make it creak by pushing it. It almost seems to be in the area where the speakers/mics for the noise canceling hardware may be.

    I think it has also been reported by others, but my driver's seat now has a creak coming from the upper area around my upper back/shoulers. It's quite annoying as it's right by my ears.

    So far after taking delivery on Friday of my Plaid X, I've found three minor issues. First, the USB C ports in the center console either don't work or aren't actually there. It looks like there are ports there but when I try to plug in a cable it just slips through the hole. Second, the...

    Unfortunately, I was the only Model X (I saw) taking delivery at the time. I got (slightly) special treatment at President of TeslaClubLA by taking direct factory delivery instead of the regular delivery at the new delivery/service center down the street from the factory.

    Just picked up my MSM Plaid X at the factory delivery center.

    Mt previous 2016 Model X was a 6 seater. Adults can easily comfortably fit in the second row captains seats. They can mostly fit in the 3rd row if they put their feet between the second row seats. It's fine for a drive to dinner, but wouldn't be comfortable for a 5 hour drive to Las Vegas.

    2016 Model X P90D ludicrous & ludicrous+ with 50k miles getting 230 miles at a full charge.

    That is correct. When new, the 2016 P90DL was rated for 250 EPA miles. Tesla changed their battery range estimates a few years later and the range dropped to 230 miles. So your 230 full charge for a 2016 P90DL is spot on.
