    I fixed my rattle by first applying a then layer of grease to the top of the strut and then a healthy amount of window urethan to top of the strut and then reinstalled.

    Tesla cripple model S stranding family

    Something that's overlooked here is at the rate insurance company's are totaling Tesla's not even the rish will be able to afford insurance on a tesla soon. A model 3 will be like a teenager trying to get full coverage on mustang gt.

    Tesla cripple model S stranding family

    This may be from another thread but this is my view. A total is subjective decision not always made by trained professional but sometimes a pencil pusher looking at the numbers not the condition of the car.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    Well fixed the rattle that I would of bet money was the dash. What I found on my 2016.5 was on the blisten strut was a thin plate maybe 2.5 mil thick that separated the strut mount plate and the strut from direct contact with the tower had a thick decal or part number that had worn through or...

    In my job constantly cars are totaled for various reasons that have nothing to do with the state of damage but more to do with rental fees and parts availability and does the customer want it back. 70 percent of the time the decision is made by a adjuster sitting in his car saying no way am I...

    Did drive unit fluid change today

    The front is a bit more of a challenge, you have to remove the front tub and trim and remove the belly pan or lower front splashshield. Then there is a insulated cover on the drive unit that has Velcro that is bear and most be partially removed to gain access to drain plug. I believe it took...

    Salvaged Tesla all tinted

    Tinted tailights and 20 percent window tint all the way around. I added a custom gun metal color to the rims with some red to the brembo brakes. The rims started with a light silver and I added 6 coats of tinted tri coat to build a really nice candy effect on the rims. Next upgrade 75d

    Salvaged or no?

    From the pics doesn’t justify a total, as for new drive unit can’t understand why a shop would say it need to be changed without eyes on it and inspection. Practice like this will only raise insurance rates for Tesla owners. Half the total Tesla’s out there wouldn’t be if certified shops and...
