    21" Arachnid Rims on Model X - Load Ratings

    I know what I have better than you do. These are 21" Model Y wheels, NOT 20" TSportline wheels. The guy I bought them from has 20" TSportline wheels in their place...he's going for range, I'm going for looks. I also had to buy wheel adapters to convert them from 5x114.3 to 5x120...literally...

    21" Arachnid Rims on Model X - Load Ratings

    I understand that but I got the same questions when it came to handling weight of the wheels themselves with everyone saying the Y wheels couldn't handle the curb weight of the X...much like some are saying about S Arachnids on an X. I'd have reread the thread but I don't recall if offsets...

    Refresh 2021 front bumper facelift on 2016+?

    Expensive way to get a bumper upgrade but that's cool. Now TSportline would answer vs ignoring the repeated tags on this post for the rest of us...

    21" Arachnid Rims on Model X - Load Ratings

    For what it's worth I've been running 21" Model Y Uberturbines on my X for 5mo now with zero issues...other than the GF touching a few curbs since the tires are a bit stretched from the factory. https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/model-y-uberturbine-wheels-on-a-model-x.271298/#post-6906540

    Only 12 Amp on 240V Tesla Wall Charger

    My TMC charges at 32A, but two times I've used a HPWC (dealership and airport) and both times I could only charge at 12-24A max when I got back home. Both times a scroll wheel reset solved it.

    '18 X100D - HV battery replacement

    I didn't buy the extended warranty but my drive unit and battery are under stock warranty until 3/2026 (my birthday is 3/26 ironically) and we currently have like 106K on our P100D. To a point I hope mine fails before the warranty for obvious reasons. I'm glad this worked out for ya even...

    Largest tire fitment on the 20" Carbon Slipstreams

    No, the 20" Carbon Slipstreams I had when I bought it are staggered 9/9.5" wheels w/ 265/45/20 fronts and 275/45/20 rears vs the 265/50/20 square tire I'm running now on staggered wheels. I've checked dimensions via the link below and there's no rolling diameter differences even though there's...

    2022 model x plaid. Huge headache every time i go full throttle. plaid headache

    I've randomly had the same issue over the years as my cars have gotten faster and faster...200HP NOS and geared Suzuki streetbike, 500HP turbo K swapped Toyota MR2, 600HP Ford Harley Davidson F150 come to mind at first. I had noticeable neck pain to the point of where I found myself adjusting...

    Largest tire fitment on the 20" Carbon Slipstreams

    So today I unintentionally figured out the largest tire I can fit w/o touching the suspension up front. Long story but I had a full set of 265/50/20 Blizzak DM-V2 installed on my 20" wheels as a winter setup and finally got the chance to install them today...rears have plenty of room but the...

    Model X: Driver-side door won't push open

    I assumed it was the actuator that physically pushed the door open since I watched a Rich Rebuilds video and his tech had mentioned that the ball end of the door actuators are known to fail and was the cause for the door not opening electronically but the physical interior door handle still...

    Feel free to search YouTube and I replaced the passenger door actuator.

    Anyone using a QuickJack

    Random post because someone IM'd me but here's how I'm hanging my jacks and rolling around the battery & pump. Hook from Wal-Mart, cut off the end leaving just enough that it won't slide off but doesn't require lifting them completely off the ground either and then a Harbor Freight dolly...both...

    Model X - non-driver doors won't open from the outside

    My passenger door only opened from the inside for a while but I could see the door trying to push itself open. $12 actuator from the dealership, YouTube video to remove the doorpanel and fixed it myself literally in the parking lot.

    Bird eye view

    While I agree with the general statement and I've NEVER seen a group of car owners who can't NOT curb their wheels, my '10 X5M had birds eye with 3 cameras yet my '17 X with at least 6 cameras doesn't...why is beyond me. I've seen an aftermarket option that's stupidly overpriced at around $2k...

    Pairing Key Fob

    How are you doing this then? I've got a '17 X with a fob that stopped working after a battery replacement, two dealerships couldn't get it to work so I had to buy another for almost $200 but I'd still like to get my old one working.

    Model X: Driver-side door won't push open

    It's a $13 actuator, stop avoiding it's replacement before something WAY more expensive breaks like the actuator that pushed the door open.

    Will factory 20” Model 3 wheels fit on a a late 2016 Model S?

    There's absolutely nothing wrong or brave about using spacers or adapters if installed properly. These are forged, hubcentric and torqued to spec so they're just as safe as bolting on wheels without them. They're also likely safer than the "flow forged" (cast and then machined slightly)...

    Model X door handle issue

    Does the door still crack the window and try to push itself open, fail and then give up...but still opens from the inside? If so, it's a simple $13 actuator you can get from Tesla...look on YouTube to remove the door panel and get to the actuator, it's in the middle of the door and you'll be...

    Refresh wheel spacers? any recs and/or pics?

    Is there something you've seen specifically showing that 6061 isn't safe enough? I've seen brodozers running 8" spacers on the rock crawlers, doing things WAY worse than the average mall cruisers Tesla, and they didn't need to upgrade to 7075. Here's my 5x120 X running 5x114.3 Y wheels using...

    Model X: Driver-side door won't push open

    Yes, there's videos on YouTube showing how to remove the door panel, after that it's pretty straight forward...one connector and three clips.

    OBD-II Vehicle Diagnostic Port in Model X -- Where is it?

    Wait, so we've gotta buy a $160 dongle to use Scan My Tesla? I've got $8 dongles that work great in my BMW's, I just haven't tried one yet.

    Free Supercharging tied to Tesla account?

    Have them give you the email address and password they used on the app...easiest way to do it. Whatever happens via the DMV isn't reported to Tesla. I bought a used '17 that had SC, I called Tesla to create an acct, they gave me app access after I showed a bill of sale from a...

    New Map Update NA-2022.28-14046

    Ever since my last update about a month ago (one software, one navigation...was on 2020 stuff before that because I had the wrong box checked) I've got new issues I didn't have before. Nowadays FSD loves to randomly fantom brake, which is nice when someone is behind me. Every morning the...

    Model X: Driver-side door won't push open

    I sprayed some WD40 using the straw down the cable itself, pulled on it a few times to get it to work it's way down to the internals of the latch itself. I also sprayed down the outside of the latch shooting it from inside the door and outside just to make sure it's not binding.

    HDMI interface to the touchscreen

    Any parts numbers listed on the broken parts? More often than not these parts are just universal items paired together into a "kit".

    Model X: Driver-side door won't push open

    I literally just fixed mine yesterday. Went to the dealership, gave them the part number, they asked for my VIN and I was outta there for only $14. Door panel is held on by like 5 10mm bolts and then a bunch of clips. Door panel can kinda hang the cables (I took mine off and it was two...

    Model X frunk/hood shocks

    Anyone need a set? I've upgraded to the Hansshow motorized and would rather see these goto a good home vs sitting on a shelf or tossed. PU in the N Seattle area or can be shipped on your dime.

    20 or 30 amp breaker for tesla wall charger

    What's the deal with Leviton anyways? That's been mentioned more than once without any reasoning.

    20 or 30 amp breaker for tesla wall charger

    What's the issue with Leviton anyways? I don't unplug my UMC either other than maybe twice to relocate the outlet and another time to see the 30A stamp which bought me to this post.

    20 or 30 amp breaker for tesla wall charger

    1) Will do, I'll go grab one this weekend. 2) It's labeled Tesla and all, even the eBay ad is the same way, hence my confusion. I'll double check and Google the part number on it just to see what comes up but that 30A threw me off. 3) Noted. My charger stays plugged in all the time, I've only...

    Snippiness 2.0

    I have a clue what I'm talking about since I've got lowering links on our 535xiT and X5M...and what might take YOU hours took me minutes lol. It was a simple question that you could have answered instead of trying to belittle me by saying I have poor grammar then getting butthurt when it's you...

    Picture stolen from eBay but mine looks the same...says 14-50 on it then 30A below that.

    20 or 30 amp breaker for tesla wall charger

    I'm at work until midnight, I will later because I don't understand it either. As I mentioned, he installed a 60A breaker on information given from me with the assumption that the adapter I was using was a 50A.

    20 or 30 amp breaker for tesla wall charger

    I never mentioned anything about a dryer. He came over with 25' of 6-3 wire and made an all new run for me, ended up only needing about 17' of wire when said and done. The 60amp breaker he installed is because I was under the assumption that a 14-50 adapter was 50A but somehow mine says it's...

    20 or 30 amp breaker for tesla wall charger

    - Somehow my plug says 14-50 on it, but then it also says it's only 30A. - I don't know if it's a GFCI breaker but he does this as a career so I'd assume he knows this. I'm not using a hardwired charger, just a UMC which is getting the job done when charging overnight. - I'll check the brand...

    20 or 30 amp breaker for tesla wall charger

    Thanks for the info, but you've gone WAY over my head on some points :-D I'll respond with what I know in the meantime since I'm at work until midnight. 1) The adapter says NEMA 14-50 on it, yet between the prongs it says it's on 30A. 2) That someone is an electrician buddy, he only had a 60A...
