    Crap on windshield! does it look like glitter or soap scum

    Thanks but…. I would be afraid to do this for fear of scratching the glass. It would take hours maybe days to complete as most of my windshield has this on it and it seems to be getting worse. How could it be an overspray if it seems to cover more of the glass every week? It seems to me there...

    Crap on windshield! does it look like glitter or soap scum

    I have been traveling but thanks for all the comments. I am about to try again to get this crap off my car. My last car a Prius had 80K on it and I drove it all over the US, never had this issue. My Y is not even two years old and the glitter is getting worse. I cannot find a thread on this site...

    Crap on windshield! does it look like glitter or soap scum

    After reading several threads about the crap on the windshield it appears that two different issues are being described, so please help me here. Does it look like glitter when the sun hits the windshield at the right angle or is it like soap scum? Mine looks like glitter in the sun and some of...

    Have you de-scummed your glass yet?

    Thanks for the details, pad first so no splatter. I think I have a drill that will work for this or I can borrow one. Yes I use a little ladder to clean my car but it is still difficult for me to reach the center of the windshield, I am 5ft2in and shrinking daily. 🤣

    Have you de-scummed your glass yet?

    Yikes this requires a glass polisher but I fear I don’t have that skill. Also I am small and would have to sit on the Frunk to do this. I wonder how much it would cost to have a detailed do it? Thx for the info

    Have you de-scummed your glass yet?

    I did the clay bar/detailing routine, some gray came off but not much. I’ll have to think about how to try scraping as I do not hav a garage. I know if I point the car towards the setting sun when it’s low in the sky I can see the spots on the windshield very clearly. I don’t know why there’s...

    windshield pitting?

    I have tried a clayblock (not clay bar) and the chemical bros lube that comes with it. It did not help.

    windshield pitting?

    Happens over time? I have owned many cars and this has never happened before. I drove a Prius for 12 yrs in desert storms etc but never had anything like this. It is so thick that it is becoming a safety hazard.

    Have you de-scummed your glass yet?

    Did the scum look like sparkles or glitter all over the windshield? I have tried so many suggestions to remove this that I am gong crazy,

    windshield pitting?

    Yes I am having the same issues. I have tried everything suggested on the internet regarding this problem. Nothing works. I had a Prius V for 12 yrs that went through many desert wind/sand storms but this never happened in that car. I hear it is the more high end cars that have this issue. Can...

    Keep Unrepairable Flat Tire?

    I keep hearing how difficult it is to plug a foam tire. I am a small, 72yr old woman so I wonder if plugging a foam tire is not an option for me? When I had a screw in the tire of my Prius I just kept putting air in it until I could get it fixed. I can do that with a form tire too right?

    Tires! A Cautionary Tale

    Yes I was told if I get a flat to call Tesla service and they will come repair the tire just as you described. thx

    Tires! A Cautionary Tale

    Today I was told that by Tesla service that their tires have added road grip that other tires so not. I know nothing about tires. Are there other tires that are not from Tesla that have this extra grip? Are there other tires that have extra grip and acoustic foam that don't cost 400$? Also...

    Tires! A Cautionary Tale

    This is odd. The tTesla service shop in Seaside CA said they repair foam tires all the time. The foam layer is removed, the puncture fixed and foam put in. There are so many people sating so many different things I am puzzled. Some say the Tesla tire compressor patch kit can do a temp fix...

    Rear Model X wheel and tire on front in an emergency?

    Funny I was just told by the Tesla service guy rotating my tires that the sealant kits won't work on th acoustic foam tires.
  19. blissdancer

    Rear Model X wheel and tire on front in an emergency?

    Well that is interesting because a Tesla tire guy just told me that the sealant will not fix an acoustic foam tire. In fact when Tesla repairs a tire they have to remove the foam. He said there is no way sealant will fix the tire.

    Seat is coming apart

    got my Tesla Y on June 28, 2021. I did the 48 hour check over on the car list and the problems. They made an appointment for me to bring the car in. Then I discovered that there was a huge gap between the seat cushion and the plastic molding on the left side of the driver seat. I pointed this...

    FSD Beta Experience - Be Careful What You Wish For

    I do not have this experience either. Cybercherry is very good at turning the high beams off when a cat is approaching in the opposite direction.

    FSD Beta Experience - Be Careful What You Wish For

    I agree. It takes a person who likes detail, can track patterns and has a fast reaction time. Kinda hyper but cool in crisis. I have become a better driver. I am totally bonded with the Cybercherry in standard mode. I am less stressed out in beta-FSD than I was two months ago, but I do wish the...

    Warning!!!! Do not recalibrate cameras in FSD Beta [RESOLVED]

    None of the above worked for me after driving 80 miles. I was able to return home on autopilot. Do soft and hard resets, drove around a bit and now I have lost both FSD beta and autopilot. Have a notice into service.

    FSD Beta Experience - Be Careful What You Wish For

Drove 80 miles home on autopilot. DId a soft and hard reset. Drove the car a few blocks, no FSD and now no autopilot. I send...

    FSD Beta Experience - Be Careful What You Wish For

    Thank you for this. I have told people that being a Beta tester is stress hell. When it is good it is lovely but one must always be on guard. I must confess that I often forget to hit the camera button after the car has freaked out but I am trying hard to report back. Here is a write-up I...

    Confusion about FSD and AP

    I got my Tesla Y in late June 2021. FSD was only enabled for freeway use when I got the car. Learning how to let the car drive scared me into being a better driver. lol I became a FSD Beta tester on 12/1/21 and surface street FSD was enabled with a score of 99 that was never below 95.

    2021.44.25 Holiday Update and USB access

    Not happy with the new interface. I loved that text messages automatically loaded to the screen and I could do voice to text as soon as they came in on my phone. Now they do not. I only know if I have a text from my phone, then I have to hit the green phone, find the person who has texted and...

    Last update had me up all night.

    Apparently the new software required a new charger cable after the issue I had. Oddly the software is still trying to say that it can now charge at 45 amps when my NEMA50plug on 240 only goes to 34. I have to reset the charge amp each time I use it.

    Last update had me up all night.

    So after the update completed I set the car to charge as usual. When to bed. About 4pm pst the car unlocked itself, opened trunk and turned headlights on. The lights woke me up. Checked the car. Charging failed for the first time ever! Unplugged the 240 plug. Waited a few minutes and...

    Confused about Cabin Temp Protection

    Yes have read the manual and know where the cabin protect features are. I never had the climate control AC on automatic before and cabin protection worked just fine.

    Confused about Cabin Temp Protection

    I have received two messages from my Tesla Y telling me that having the manual AC off is not allowing Cabin Overheat Protection to come on. I do not have the AC off button in the off position on the COR menu. I do not have the AC auto or the AC manual button on in the Climate Control. in the on...

    No Cruise control, no automatic pilot available???

    Some info, back on June some folks had the same issue I am having and no amount of rebooting fixed it. People had to open a service request and have the update sent to them again and all was fine.

    No Cruise control, no automatic pilot available???

    Ok so reboot options 1 and 3 do nothing. I am trying option 4 again. First time after five minutes I could still hear car. Now I am waiting a full 10 minutes. I don’t see how the sensors and cameras would have gotten dirty sitting over night in the driveway, but I will clean them in the morning...

    I have a June 27 2021 Model Y. The 2021.4.21.3 updated last night. Today I have no cruise control available. This was my week to try auto pilot and I set everything to do that before the update. Now no autopilot is available. I am hoping on a mini road trip next week. I need these features...

    Will a Terra Trike RamblerW fit in a TeslaY?

    Yes yes it will, if you remove the floor boards for the trunk, lay the trike seat flat as it can go and have removal handle bars like I do. Also ramps help to load the solar queen into cyber-cherry when you are my age. lol It was a struggle but worth it. I went for a great ride in the old Fort...
