    AP Cameras...yet another thing to consider if not under warranty

    Are the lenses dirty? Just a thought.

    Any ideas how to retrieve... (don't laugh)

    Maybe you could tape one of those super sticky roach traps under the console after removing the panel and drive around like crazy until the M&M sticks to it.

    Pigeon problem

    When I got a quote it said pest abatement was extra FWIW. I'm thinking this could be another application for the Tesla glass cleaning laser patent. Not to clean the panels, to zap the flying rats ;)

    Thoughts on Pickup Truck Beds

    I'd like to see the bed floor be a conveyor belt type mechanism like the top cover. Have something in the front of the bed? Push a button and it comes to you.

    Yes, have a family member watch your video and then read this: Almost every state, including Alabama, has a process for reporting a potentially unsafe driver to its state licensing office or department of motor vehicles. Alabama accepts reports only from family members. If the state agency...

    New 20'' Two-Tone Slipstream Wheel Option

    The way I installed these is with the wet method so I could easily position them. I used a light spray of the same foaming glass cleaner I used to clean the rims on the rim and back of the vinyl. I agree that the radius is a bit off, needs to be a larger. After positioning the pieces on the...

    MS Rear facing Seats!!!!

    Are these from a salvage vehicle? I don't suppose you have the mythical bumper reinforcement to go along with the seats?

    Has this ever happened to you?? Unable to retract 2nd row seatbelt

    Probably the only way to reset the retractor pawl is tear the seat apart and unbolt the anchor in the bottom. There should be a procedure in the service manual if anyone has access to that.

    How to remove clear-coat/paint overspray from windows???

    I would use acetone, dampen a rag with some and wipe. Don't drip it on your paint. If there's any figernail polish remover around you can use that if it's acetone based.

    Rare signed tesla founders series, for sale collectors only

    This thread has me thinking about selling an Elon signed Roadster HotWheel car in package. Maybe $5k, no $10k sounds good, should be worth at least 1/4 of a visor. I'll probably end up waiting until he takes off to Mars. Signature items should be harder to come by then.

    Turning on PIN to drive would eliminate the possibility of this happening.

    Replacing a cracked tail light ... options?

    Is the center flat? Maybe you can carefully dremel out the center piece and shape a piece of Plexiglas to glue in. I'm not sure how those are constructed but it looks like the center is a plain sheet of plastic. If it's curved you may still be able to shape a piece of Plexiglas with heat.

    CA (Bay area) WTB MODEL S EITHER 2013 pre or 2016 facelift

    Yeah, that is a good deal. Prices are dropping. The cheapest I saw on EV-CPO was 39K. I'd be willing to negotiate.

    CA (Bay area) WTB MODEL S EITHER 2013 pre or 2016 facelift

    When you buy a 6 year old car you can expect some wear. Besides the B pillar wear, another common issue, the interior is like new, especially with the new seats. Things to be fixed is one reason it's in your price range. The last DMV was $354 including the EV car fee. Registration expires in...

    Main battery was replaced when the contactor(s) failed, basically the big switches that connect the high voltage to the motor. It was common on the earlier cars. No battery problem since then. Tesla service said that the screen would be replaced free but now I'm seeing threads here that they're...

    Dickinson North Dakota Supercharger Location

    Frunk easy close spring mod

    If anything, I would worry about the hood flying up on the freeway if this mod diminishes the holding power of the latch. All of the gas cars I've owed had the second safety latch you have to reach under the hood to release, after pulling the release in the car. I don't know if there's any kind...

    How practical are the Model S 3rd-row jump-seats?

    I recommend telling your wife you need to buy a used Model X because the whole family won't fit in the S (and keep the S).

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I haven't been following this but is there any consensus on the short term? Up or down? My home buying aspirations are hoping back up to a reasonable level soon. BTW, home prices in this part of the SF bay area are tumbling quickly, not sure what that says for the economy. The housing market was...

    Poll: "Systems are powering up" error message

    I agree that this is a normal boot-up from sleep mode. It sound like sleep mode is engaging more quickly/often than before with some cars or firmware versions. It just happened to me after maybe 15 minutes from parking. At least it boots up much faster than my laptop. I bet turning on "Always...

    MCU reboot during Supercharging?

    Still stuck? Is the car responding to the phone app? Maybe try telling it to stop changing with the app if so. Have you called service?

    You could post in the want to buy forum. There are at least a couple of dismantlers that could have them.

    Poor radio reception after tint?

    Antennas are kind of a black magic thing in electronics, lots of variables can affect them. I wouldn't be surprised if some kind of metal or other material in the tint film messed with the antenna. The old whip antennas on the fender may have worked better but I don't think anyone wants that.

    Model X: Any issues with towing?

    Now that's a pretty cool travel trailer, when you get tired of the road you can hit the rails ;) Has anyone towed a pop-up tent type trailer? I assume range would be better with one of those?
