    Upper control arm squeaks - how long at a service center?

    I had this done a month or so but I dropped the car off and went back between 2 -3 hours later to collect it. Mine were replaced due to being seized apparently.

    Unable to get Model Y Rear Wheel Drive Insurance

    Reminds me of the time I was trying to do a multicar policy with Admiral, 30 minutes just to be told they wouldn't insure a modified car were the modification had been done by the owner, they were only mild changes.

    [UK] 2022.36

    I got 36.5 yesterday while looking at the new energy graph today I noticed that it said I could save 0.2% by changing the temperature to 22c, which was confusing as it had been set to 22c all the time I'd been in the car.

    Service request

    I've now got an appointment next week, one thing I'm unclear on is the message says it's contactless and there will be no showroom presence, does that mean there are no service staff in the showroom but it's still open as it says they will be able to look at the issue while I wait?

    Service request

    I raised a service request but it has had a tick next to Cost Estimate for just over a week, should I receive something to tell me what the cost would be? I don't know if it makes any difference but the car is leased. Thanks

    Upper control arm issue?

    I booked a request in the app last week but it's been sat at Cost Estimate for a few days, I just noticed that there was a Manage Request button and when I clicked on it there's the request I made for the noise and also one saying "Rework Electrical Harness Due to Water Ingress R1". There was a...

    Upper control arm issue?

    I've got the MOT booked for two weeks tomorrow though it's not actually due until the middle of November, is it likely to be an MOT failure given I only noticed the noise start a couple of days ago?

    Upper control arm issue?

    Funny thing is it's only started doing it a couple of days ago and I just happened to pre-book it's first MOT the day before.

    Upper control arm issue?

    My 2019 Model 3 has started making a creaking noise coming from around the front of the drivers side door, it only does it below 20mph. Does this sound like it could be the upper control arms? The car has done less than 8000 miles. Thanks

    The majority of the time I drive with the rear view camera display turned on so I've never had an issue with the blind spot camera.

    I don't know if it's a coincidence but since 20.7 downloaded though not installed my rear camera has stopped working for both reversing and dash cam. It was working first thing this morning when I went out. I've decided to install the update and see if it fixes it.

    [UK] 2022.16.x

    Today was the first time I've driven the car for a few weeks and happened to notice that the visualisations for other cars has changed, where before they looked like very rounded Model 3's they now look like boxy Japanese cars from the 80's.

    London driving. Frequent very loud alerts. Lane departure? Avoidance? Driving me crazy.

    The lane departure warning can be a bit over eager, I've had it go off a couple times when I've been lining up to reverse in to my drive and I live at the end of a cul-de-sac that doesn't have any road markings.

    How Far Away Does Your Phone Key Work to Unlock ?

    I find that walk-away locking and unlocking are completely different. When unlocking I need to have the phone in my pocket nearest the car. Also locking is different depending on where you are in relation to the car, I can walk two cars length away from the back of the car before it's locks...

    I never get them in the M3 but a way of avoiding them is to be touching the door striker before you put your feet on the ground. I always have to do this in my parents car.

    What are these?

    You'll probably find that the clip isn't aligned with the hole, one mine two of the clips had come out so I was able to pull the plastic trim away from the sill far enough so I could see the clips and align them.

    Someone in the main forum had been told by a service centre that 44.5 would stop the chargeport door doing an impression of the cash till from Open All Hours but I've just been out to the car and it's still doing it.

    Anyone fitted a charge port light?

    If I've just got out of the car and the tail lights are still on I've found just holding my hand in front of the light is enough to illuminate the charge port to be able to see it, if they've already gone off I'd just use my phone or apple watch.
