    Wind noise from front windows

    To clarify, bottom left as you are inside or outside of the car? If you were referring to left from inside the car, which seems to be what you have in your photos, then we had the same problem area. Also seems we had a similar solution, the service center either bolstered the seal or adjusted...

    Model X now available with round steering wheel

    My understanding is that the only thing the round wheel changes is the shape, and the controls are same as the yoke. There was a tweet from Elon almost a year ago that center horn would be enabled via software, but that seems uncertain, to say the least, as there seems to be no switch under the...

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    I think you are right. FWIW, the voltage drop is in the charging circuit (circuit breaker, wire and gen-1 mobile connector). With voltage at panel of 203V and drawing 40A, the car reports 196V, for a drop of 7V, or a resistive load of 0.175 Ohm. That is the resistance of about 500 feet of 6 awg...

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    Of course. The two breakers I linked to fit the rails in my panel and are made by brands I've heard about (Siemens and Square D).

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    Correct. As I said above I have three phase 3 x 200A service, and 205V is "close enough to the 207 I would expect". My concern was that drawing 40A would bring it from 205 down to 194-198 range. To my surprise, the sentiment seems to be that I shouldn't worry about it as it probably just...

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    Thanks! The breaker doesn't have a test/reset button, at least not one visible without removing the panel cover. I think I am going to ask for replacement with a better quality GFCI one. Do this or this look good? Regarding the disconnect, that was all that was feasible at this installation...

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    Update: I ended having the electrician run #6 copper wire in a conduit (2 phases plus neutral) from panel in basement to disconnect (indoors) and then to 14-50 outlet (outdoors in a metal enclosure). I changed the cheapo outlet that came with the enclosure to a high-quality Hubell (required...

    Model X Plaid Third Row Climate

    I would estimate that I have under 20% when stationary but close to 40% at highway speeds. Seems problem is caused from poorly connected vents and according to Tesla Service it would require a substantial tear down of the interior to reconnect and wrap the vents to stop air leaks. So given that...

    Any way to ONLY tilt passenger mirror when in reverse?

    It would be a pain if you wanted to do it every time you back up, but if you only need to do it when you back into your garage, assuming there is no alternating forward and reverse, it would be quite easy. When you are ready to back up you select the alternate profile from the menu, and you go...

    Pricing changes LR & Plaid

    Agree, and I would be surprised if it stays this way for long. I don't really want the plaid because of the shorter range, but I want the carbon fiber interior which I can't get in the LR, so I am tempted. But I also want HW4 (with high res radar and maybe headlight/taillight cameras), matrix...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Note that the plaid is now only $3,500 more than the LR if you want the 6-seat configuration (which is included in the plaid but is +$6,500 in the LR). At this delta I would probably have ordered the plaid for the carbon fiber interior, which you can't get in the LR!

    Any way to ONLY tilt passenger mirror when in reverse?

    Can you create a profile for reverse without mirror tilt with the mirrors the way you want them? Or will the passenger side not adjust enough without tilt?

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    With all respect, if the suggestion had been to wait a couple of weeks or months, I can see that. Center horn, matrix headlights, HW4 with high res radar and possibly with headlight/taillight cameras coming up. I'd love to have all of that, and I plan to cancel my LR on order (current EDD...

    A J-turn :) . Seriously though, all muscle memory for how to handle emergencies (get out of skids, correct understeer, swerving, you name it) has been developed over decades of driving with round steering wheels. When I try to honk, I still need to think to look for the button and not hit the...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    That is also my concern with the yoke after a month or so with my 2023 MX. I also have an order from 4/22 (that I will probably let go unless it would get me HW4), and seriously considering the round option. The round steering wheel would be more boring, doesn't fix my biggest issue of the new...

    Wind noise from front windows

    Thanks. So that would let air in from the top or the front part of the window, right? In my case that part seems to work well. If my problem is caused by the door seal, it would be the vertical part of the seal in the area near the top of the door frame and bottom of window.

    Model X Tilt and Matrix headlights?

    I saw a photo of a test model 3 with what looked like cameras in the headlights. If that is part of HW4, maybe we will see matrix headlights on the X at the same time as HW4.

    Wind noise from front windows

    Thanks--what third party products did you try? Was your wind noise present at low speeds? In my case it only starts around 60mph or when a large truck passes close by. I know where the leak is (bottom rear corner of driver window, both from glass and door edges of the window). I have a visit...

    Wind noise from front windows

    Thanks--I will check when back in town. On the X the door handles have no mechanical connection to the door open mechanism, so that would make it unlikely to be the problem, right? Alternatively I could always cover them with an easy to remove tape to test.

    Refresh Model S/X yoke controls owners survey

    My main issue (after 3+ weeks) is not so much with the yoke itself as with the horn and turn signals. The turn signal buttons are a pain to use with gloves or when the yoke is turned (e.g., when exiting a roundabout) as they require looking to find them. I am afraid if I need to honk in an...

    Wiki Model X Refresh Issues Thread

    FYI, since I can't delete the previous post, my issue has been mostly resolved. I think the problem was caused 90% from ice that had formed on the back of the wiper blades, making them less flexible, and 10% from remnants on the windshield of the protective film that I assume was there during...

    Wiki Model X Refresh Issues Thread

    The wiper blades in my 3-week old 2023 MX LR can get really noisy. Only noticed this recently on a road trip, as the weather got really cold (under 10 degrees F). Especially with TACC and EAP requiring auto wipers, they often turn on with just sprinkles of rain or snow, and they are so loud that...

    Wind noise from front windows

    I have the same issue on a 2-week old MX LR. At high speeds there is air coming in from both the bottom 5 inches of the window edge and from the back 3-5 inches of the door panel. The air from the bottom of the corner seems to be coming from inside the door panel itself, so I wonder if it gets...

    Model X (only) - FSD beta

    Did you get FSDb? How long after you got the car to get "normal" firmware instead of the new car firmware? I got my MXLR two weeks ago with 2022.40.200.1, which last week updated to 2022.40.300.1, both of which are new car versions. I assume I have to go to normal firmware versions first, and...

    Refresh Model S/X yoke controls owners survey

    The thread linked by @Mark II has a video that shows both steering wheel and yoke disassembled. The airbag assemblies seem similar, but the steering wheel version has two pressure-activated switches behind it, which make contact when you press the center of the wheel, and thus can activate the...

    Refresh Model S/X yoke controls owners survey

    Yes, this seems to settle it... tl;dr: elon tweeted in March 2022 that all yoke cars produced after November 2021 could get "center push" horn via software update, but there seems to be no hardware switch under the airbag to support that, which explains why we haven't seen it. So center horn...

    Refresh Model S/X yoke controls owners survey

    Elon tweeted in March 2021 that this would be fixed via firmware update, and I wonder why we haven't seen that. If there is a switch/touch sensor in the center of the yoke it should have been trivial to implement. Unless there is no there there.

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    Thanks. Actually I have the old mobile connector from my 2016 X, and it charges at 40A. So does the corded mobile connector, which @jcanoe pointed out to me is the best for my application, as it doesn't have a detachable adapter. Unfortunately I can't use my coupon code to get it, as it seems to...

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    Thanks. Basement part of the run will be exposed and in a conduit, the rest will be behind the drywall and I assume will be BX. I think it is unlikely I will ever draw more than 40amp from that circuit, but the upgraded wire is worth it to have the option. I am having an electrician do the...

    I am getting the heavy duty Hubell outlet. That was the reason for the original post asking for recommendation for a box that would accommodate it. Which I am still waiting for, by the way :) Not feasible on a city sidewalk... There I will have to go with some hope, but at least with mobile...

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    True, but (a) my full run from the panel to disconnect is about 15 feet (panel is in basement almost exactly below), (b) the wall connector wouldn't draw more than 48, so I would still have a margin to the 55 rating of #6 Romex, which I am pretty sure in real life would be good enough for 60...

    Got it. I did not realize that when you set single tap for AP/NOA it doesn't go to TACC when you move the yoke. Thanks for clarifying.

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    Thank you for the suggestion but that is not feasible because of the special construction of the garage door and brick wall around it. I can only drill the frame of the garage door, and there a max of an inch or so.

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    I am installing the outlet using #6 wire so that I have the option to install the wall connector and be able to charge at 48A in the future. This is not for every day charging, but occasional charging. When in use the mobile connector cannot be unplugged from the car. The 14-50 adapter can be...

    NEMA 14-50 home charging advice

    The use case here is that the outlet will be outside a garage door opening to a city sidewalk (so that the car can be charged when parked in front of the garage). The disconnect will be in a protected and locked area so that I don't have to go all the way to the electrical panel to turn power...

    Hello, I am looking for a wall-mounted outside enclosure that can accommodate a Hubell 14-50 HBL9450A outlet. I would prefer it to be black and as slim as possible. Because of location slim is more important than black, as I can always spray paint... Any recommendations? I am looking at...

    Refresh Model S/X yoke controls owners survey

    Are you sure? I have AP/NOA on double-tap, and I agree that it is awkward (although I am getting better at it). If I override via the yoke, the car stays on TACC. It is a bit hard to tell because as far as I can tell the only indication is the blue max speed below the greyed yoke icon. Maybe...

    I know, and that was the reason for this entire thread. In August there would be 5 people wanting the car, plus Carvana etc. I got no serious interest for 9% above what Tesla offered (9% to cover the extra sales tax--in NY you only pay tax on the difference between trade-in and new car). Also...

    Refresh Model S/X yoke controls owners survey

    When my AP disengages because I take over the steering, TACC stays on until I brake. If you set single tap for AP and only want TACC, can't you disengage via the yoke and then be in TACC mode?

    Car is no longer available--it was traded in on 12/4 . Already missing FUSC :) The build quality of the 2023 MX is better, but I think I was lucky with my 2016 MX which gave me almost 6 trouble free years! Thank you all for reading/commenting/DMing.
