    Autowipers improved?

    Personally I haven't seen much improvement to auto wipers. It's frustrating when I open the driver's door, then sit down then the wiper decides to sweep really quickly and the inside door gets all wet. Otherwise manual or always on till I see a marked improvement.

    How to replace FWD glass top

    The easiest way would be to request service on your app to replace glass and ask for the part number. They should give you an invoice with breakdown and part number. The harder way would be to take the door trim apart and look at the label itself. Either way, search online for that part. But...

    Radio available for MCU upgrades

    I had my radio upgrade done last week and noticed the radio stations no longer shows the station graphic/logo. Now just a blank grey box. Curious, is everyone else like that?

    Model X Winter Tires - changing aspect OK?

    Curious, so if you have a spare extra set of stock 20" asymmetric rims, would it be better to sell them for square 19" rims/tires or just get snow tires for the stock 20"?

    Water Leak into Trunk

    I had this issue and it took about 4 days for tesla SC to figure it out. I thought it was a fluke that the very bottom carpet was always damp. I looked all over the rear hatch thinking it would come from there (above). Alas, it seems the small quarter glass in the rear sides had a tiny leak...

    2020+ front seatbacks - interchangeable for 3/Y with seatback pocket?

    This doesn't answer your question but found these seat organizer that fit my front seats pretty good (tapered to follow seat contour). https://www.amazon.com/Diono-Organizer-Books-Snacks-Black/dp/B005PK1E00 The pockets work well and my kids put all kines of stuff in them.

    interior lighting - front row ceiling light?

    Not a good fix but the sun visor have lights, which I've used before to provide just a little more forward facing light. And totally agree it was a miss. I really like the idea of possibly having lights under the rear view mirror or across the plastic conduit overhead. I'm hoping someone will...

    FM Radio Solution for Upgraded MCU2 cars?

    BTW, if anyone hasn't seen it already, tesla US made a revision to their infotainment upgrade page and state Q4 2020 they will have a radio upgrade to add FM/XM back (sorry no AM). I for one am looking forward to this. It's been okay without radio but just not the same, I'll be waiting on line...

    Falcon Wing Door Hit Ceiling

    Unfortunately this is one of those situations that if you're not familiar with how the door operates, things like this would occur. The issue is the top of the car is over the higher portion of the garage while your FWD doors are under the lower beams. As other mentioned, the sensor is in...

    Any experience with the new Tesla home ev charger?

    My gen1 and gen2 has worked great since the day I owned it and would still recommend it. But just food for thought. As more EVs start emerging, you may want to consider what your future needs will be. Pretty cool EVs like Lucid Air, EV trucks, and others have really changed the overall EV...

    Wi-Fi Connection Help

    At some point my MCU1 would no longer connect to my home network. I tried almost everything i could, both on 2.4 & 5g. Not to sound negative but I gave up. But alas the MCU2 upgrade came and I ponyed up. Now my car connects to my home network almost instantly. I changed nothing with my home...

    Model X driver side sun shade

    Agreed you shouldn't compare the different classes but actually you CAN flip down the mirror part to provide just a little more sun protection. I've done it in the front and the sides when the sun hits the right spot. But definitely form over function for the sides.

    Curb rash. Ouch.

    My $.02, most rim shops will repair rashes <$200 each. I've bought on Amazon those rim guards (rather inexpensive) as preventative and personally find them to work well. Depending how far those curbs reach out to bite your rims, those protectors will get smashed and easy peasy replace them...

    Drivers side falcon door stuck open

    I had the same issue with my 2017 x100d when I first got it, about a month in. Had to manually keep it shut and took it to my local SC. Took them a few days to diagnose and finally replaced the whole locking mechanism. Going strong for the last couple years. I wouldn't wait for the app...

    Odd paint rash on Falcon Wing Doors - anyone else?

    I believe mudflaps affect range slightly (but don't quote me on this:)) . I had the same issue and had my wings paint touched up then put a strip of PPF on the lower section. Seems to work well. Good luck!

    Powder coating stock wheels on Model X

    Is it possible to program a new key?

    Make sure to update your appt info to have them pair the keys. I just recently had one key replaced under warranty as it was not responsive and it took them 2+ hours to pair. It's apparently a tedious process. Good luck!

    How to replace FWD glass top

    Here's the eBay link Tesla RR Door Roof Glass Ass, LH | eBay Make sure you're verifying part number, Tesla has changed many versions... Typically newer versions better. The seller is pretty good at communicating so ask plenty questions. Also note, eBay will charge sales tax. Good luck!

    I felt like contributing to the greater cause as I haven't seen anyone do a "how to" for replacing the glass top on our Falcon Wing Doors (FWD).

    AP2 FSD/AP owners upgrade AP3 (HW3) - Tesla now asking for a fee now - please help

    Curious, how long did the upgrade take, either HW3 and/or MCU2? Meaning did it take more than a day? 2 or 3 days? I recently got the message that I could upgrade but don't want to be out for long. Thx

    USB thumb drives no longer recognized

    That's incorrect, sentry mode and dash carm works for MCU1 if you have AP2.5+. I'm just wondering if this issue is specific to model S or certain AP versions. I understand music usb isn't showing in 2020.12.5, but dash cam should be working as mine does. Seems people are generalizing and...

    USB thumb drives no longer recognized

    I think your title is slightly misleading as the problem isn't that it's not recognizing USB drive, it's a bug that it can't see music. Sentry/ dashcam can still read/write from USB drive. Search for 2020.12.5 as it seems many have your same issue. Hopefully the next update fixes it. Good luck!

    Never heard this before but would you mind giving some insight into your car e.g. Month/Year AP, MCU, etc.? It'll help to know for comparison to others. I have a mobile tech coming Thursday, I'll ask about those and see if they give any feedback :D

    Touch up paint kits

    It's not "pretty much the same", it's "exactly" the same ingredients and application :D I've used it and it's amazing stuff. Depending on the depth/width of scratches or chip rashes, it'll significantly diminish the look. Good luck!
  38. puhiniho


    BTW, I think it's important whenever anyone posts these firmware updates is to include the AP and MCU version? Different release notes actually occur for different versions of the X... e.g. Pre 3/18 cars vs Post. Thx!

    supercharger stations are still up - even w/ everyone hunkering down?

    @outie I mentioned in an earlier post that I recently replaced mine with the A/S+ II.

    About to join the Tesla club, help needed

    I'd recommend getting a HWPC, it's permanent and it'll allow you to keep the UMC (mobile charger) in your car when you take trips and charge with either 110v or 220v (14-50). Tesla has a lot of tech but not so much bells and whistles that other luxury cars may have. They just recently...
