    Help! I need to disassemble the driver seat!

    My lumbar support on my S has almost completely burnt out. I need to figure out how to remove the back panel of the front seat to gain access to the lumbar pressure motor and try and fix or replace it by installing an aftermarket motor. I have no clue on how to remove the seat backing without...

    Has anybody been able to rinse out or clean the tail light internally?

    My S has what seems to be dust in the outer passenger side tail light, where as there’s literal residue instead of condensation marks. I saw one write up of somebody here who disassembled the trunk tail light and removed the lens by ‘tapping on it lightly to release the CA glue, but I don’t...

    Lumbar support motor died

    http://www.fixyourtesla.com/s/Assembly-Lumbar-Support-Back-Rest-Drivers-Seat-Remove-and-Replace.html Yeah I just saw this. Disappointing news but I’m thinking it can be done in some way. Probably can’t order the motor from tesla so I’ll have to figure out the motor specs. From a video on YouTube...

    Lumbar support motor died

    Seems that my driver lumbar support has died at 76k miles. It’s got a little life in it where it can move back and forth but not enough to push the seat out unless I fiddle with it for 10min. Has anyone ever replaced the motor? I’d suspect I can find the service manual instructions but just...

    Seems like me seat has the issue of not adjusting the back rest full forward ~40% usable range of motion.

    Bump. If I ordered a replacement module on eBay will I need it to be flashed by a technician or can I plug n’ play?

    Seems like me seat has the issue of not adjusting the back rest full forward ~40% usable range of motion.

    It seems like it’s not mechanical related as it moves just fine otherwise. Is there a procedure to reset the seat control module? I’ve tried having them send a software update out to try that but no luck. Any advise? Car is out of warranty

    Can someone point me in the correct direction on getting decent quality A-Pillar tweeters for a standard sound system car?

    I've been looking around but most that I find are either out of stock or the style that are meant to be hole-sawed into your door panels. I just want a tweeter that is 1" and will work with my factory low wattage amp... my OEM tweeters keep blowing out on my car and I'm tired of warranty...

    External speaker retrofit to enable boombox on 2018 car?

    I have a feeling it’s really not that hard to do. If you’ve ever wired in speakers to a car radio, it shouldn’t be much different. This in theory would apply only if you’ve gotten MCU2 upgrade Buy the warning speaker Drill in a few holes in your undertray Cut the Tesla plug connector off and...

    Steering column harmonic vibration when telescoping

    Hey everyone. Since I’ve picked up the car 3 years ago I’ve had an issue causing my steering wheel horizontal motion (when it comes towards me during easy entry and exit) to vibrate rather loudly. You can even feel it in the back floorboard of the car it’s so prominent. Has anyone had an issue...

    Tesla Teases New Feature: Ticket Avoidance Mode

    MCU1 AP2 -> MCU 2 FSD chip, Question

    Hey guys, I just got the conversion on my 17’ and I’m curious about one thing. Did any of you notice the backup camera become very dark at night time vs the old MCU? My new MCU2 displays the camera at night time as so dark with contrast that it’s almost unusable when backing up in the dark..

    Ah yes. Tesla service at it again in the East.

    Right now I’m not going to name the service center I’m dealing with in hopes they will clear their name, but this has got to stop. The company needs to heavily review internal processes of how parts are handled and appointments are scheduled. I made my original appointment on June 10, for the...

    Everlasting pursuit of a dashboard rattle

    Every bolt I could find was tight. I did put some vibration dampening on an surface I could find. Also put some on the control arms which I notice actually does make a general difference in quality by a smidgen. (no difference in rattle though)

    If I’m not mistaken you can purchase the AM/FM tuner module. Not sure about interfacing the software with it

    Everlasting pursuit of a dashboard rattle

    Mine sounds like it’s coming from something mounted to the firewall. In theory it’s possible it could be related to a suspension issue and resonating though the car. I haven’t examined. I honestly would not let them charge you 4 hours though.

    FSD computer retrofit into HW2.0 Model S: Owner Survey

    I’m not convinced at all that MCU1 is compatible with HW3. I believe they’re scamming as many as possible like the old FSD full price “But you get early access to the new beta FSD features” bull crap. I may be wrong. But the evidence from there being no vehicles reported having an MCU1 and HW3...

    FSD/AP3 for AP2.0 owners now MCU2 upgrade becoming available?

    RCCB cameras were a big improvement in the whole AP universe... So was the Conti radar- 30 feet is a really huge margin of enhanced visibility. Anyone who is denying the fact is flat out saying Tesla had no reason to switch to HW2.5... which they absolutely did for a ton of reasons. HW2 cars...

    MCU2 - Retrofit

    My mobile service tech just told me they aren’t planning on offering a solution as far as he knows. Seems like it’s going to be an out of warranty venture. @verygreen did it with success. He may be interested in a write up but that’s all up to him. Was rather pricey.

    7th Headlight went bad (Rant)

    Yeah it’s the DRL (daytime running light) headlight bulbs are fine. If that was going out it’d be a different story because that’s consumable. Most LEDs are 50,000 hour lifespan rated. I have no clue what’s going on with the suppliers QC standards. They’re under the 50k mi warranty but each...

    7th Headlight went bad (Rant)

    Only earnings call disappointment- No info about HW1 equipped cars.

    Only earnings call disappointment- No info about HW1 equipped cars.

    I find it very disappointing there was no useful insight about the issues we are slowly discovering about engineers not being able to swap HW1 cars with FSD equipment. Also it would have been good to hear more about the upcoming features of FSD. Not much fun news but a good earnings report in all.
