    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    On passenger side you need to remove the side convers to the center console and the screw is behind it. If I remember right the other one can be replaced by the clip. You can put the plunger between the plastic cover and open to free the cable that is just stuck between.

    I am away at work until the 5 of January, at work X-mas and New Year this year. :-( Send me a PM and I will do some production run on Y splitts as soon as I get home.

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    As I have written before I have removed 30-50 plastic trims on in the back. Two plugs replaced and Tesla sell them. White plugs are tuff, blue easy. I posted a video that shows the procedure. The trim is as fast as before the plugs is made for mantle and dismantle.

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    Tesla use a cable tie (strips) between the led lock to make it tight where they have made the cut to large. The tie need to be innstaled from behind and make it quite tight.

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    The trim piece that runs along the trunk load area is not recommended to try to remove. This is very tight, have a lot of plugs and is not easy to get back into place without damaging the plugs. The regular trim on both sides is easy if you have blue plastic plugs, have removed around 40-50...

    What is the highest reservation number to get invite to configure?

    EU Prod 9.11.13 and Sig EU 288 nothing beside a higher price on Model S. I feel that I will NOT recomend anyone in EU to reserve a Model 3 Signature, you get nothing for your money. Not even a early configuration, and guess it will be the same for Model 3 to. ;-( I just ordered a Demo Model S...

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    The footwell lights in the front (driver and passenger) is rely tight and the easiest way to replace it to remove the two screws on the plates and replace it when the plastic plate is off. It is torq25, takes 5-10 min to remove the plate can take a lot more time to try to remove the led lights...

    I put in a nice order to you Pete. Looking forward to be testing the lights. I forgot to order stuff for myself and had to put in a second order. It is OK to ship it together, I ordered Fedex on the first and free shipping on the second. Better lights for the Frunk on the D cars have been...

    What purpose does the cavity behind the front "T" serve?

    Not free energy, recycling some of the used energy. I never belive this will be large enouch to be worth putting much money in. Autobahn when driving at 150-200km/h I guess you could measure it, but the car use 50 000 - 80 000W so a reward on 1000 or 2000W is a piss in the ocean.

    You get the plastic holder for the footweel from Tesla. Newer cars all have the footweel lights with or without the light/interior package, older do not. Getting behind the carpet on cars without light package is quite easy, remove the plastic cover. I can post link to a movie or parts if it...

    A ladie with a child under here arm is not a common sight in norway when arriving a car that have not been diven for a while. They use trollies or child seats to carey the smal ones.

    What purpose does the cavity behind the front "T" serve?

    I would be more worried about the gap below the hood, where the T is mounted in the winter. A friend was on the release event and it is a 10cm gap. This will be filled with snow and salt in the winter time. The T is "floting" in the air and easely broken of as a suvenier.

    Spare Switched 12V Circuit on Model S built after July 2014

    You need a square female connector to connect to the white and red male 1.5mm square pin. Remember the other 12v this connector is supplying is the 12v power outlet in the center console. So if you like to use a wire tap, T-tap go ahead, why not use this or unplugg the female connector and...
