    Refreshed Model S - rear seat rattle

    Are there any updates on a latch re-design for this? Is anyone aware if this problem persists in newer cars or did they fix the problem with a new part? Tesla put the electrical tape on it months ago which fixed the problem but the sound is now back and the tape they put on is partially worn...

    2021+ Model S and Model S Plaid Refresh Issues Thread

    Interesting... I was going to evaluate whether the 'cooing' sound was from the HVAC or the mirror fan using a stethoscope in a quiet garage, but went out to the garage to check after the update to 2022.4 and the sound is gone. Haven't heard it now for 3 days so do wonder if it was fixed with...

    2021+ Model S and Model S Plaid Refresh Issues Thread

    I will check tomorrow, but I have found repeatedly that if I turn off the HVAC it goes away and returns when I turn HVAC back on. Demonstrated this to the technician at our local service center.

    2021+ Model S and Model S Plaid Refresh Issues Thread

    Following up on the 'cooing dove' sound from the HVAC system. I demonstrated the sound to a technician a few weeks ago and made an appointment with service for next week but canceled after I swung by on Wednesday to see if they had guidance from the factory on what is causing it. They said they...

    2021+ Model S and Model S Plaid Refresh Issues Thread

    My Model S LR has this weird 'cooing' sound coming from the ventilation slot on the passenger side of the main screen. Sounds like a small dove caught in the system. Very soft, doesn't appear to be related to fan speed but it goes away when I turn off the ventilation system. Not terribly loud...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Mine wasn't here in Northern California 3 weeks ago, got the Pirellis. Bummer since I drive up to Tahoe to ski. Does anyone know if the Pirelli Elects delivered on the cars contain noise reduction foam? Car is very quiet on smooth pavement, wondering if I switch them out at some point to...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    A few updates to share since I last posted here. Took delivery of my LR on 10/23. Still getting used to the Yoke, like it on the highway, less so in crowded conditions like the parking garage at work. Slowly getting the muscle memory for the buttons - I drove my 2013 P85 for the first time in...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Yes. When I took delivery on 10/23 it was missing. The SA who did the delivery 'borrowed' a privacy screen from a demo car. Mats were already in the car.

    Wiki 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features

    I did have to ask in 2015 and this time replied to the same email address with a copy of the 2015 thread. Got a generic reply: "...If you can’t find what you’re looking for, contact us to ask a question. Note that submitting a contact request requires you to be logged into your Tesla Account...

    Wiki 2021+ Model S Refresh - Missing/Incomplete Software Features

    Hi all, new Model S LR owner (long-time 2013 P85 owner). Two quick questions for this group: 1) My car came loaded with 2021.31.103; hasn't updated in the nearly 4 weeks I've owned the car. I was expecting more frequent updates. Are they being conservative on pushing out updates right now? 2)...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Can't answer for those shipped across the country, but here in Sacramento there's a new Tesla Store that took over a former Volvo dealership - they've been open as a service center for 6 months but will only start delivering at the facility next month. I was told the holdup is that they're...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Picked up my car late yesterday afternoon at the Rocklin SC, was starting to rain as I departed and has been pouring all day today. No obvious quality issues that I have been able to detect, the fit and finish are way better than my '13 P85 and my wife's '18 M3P. Drives responsively and fast...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Interesting; as Bleedblue82 said, perhaps because I own two Teslas or perhaps because I have FSD? Or because I'm a stockholder? Anyone's guess. Sounds like we'll both get our cars at the end of October/early November. As others have said, I've been here before, I'll believe it when I drive off...

    5YJSA1E56MF45xxxx so it's a 2021. For what it's worth for those watching their Tesla apps for a VIN, the app has not yet updated to show a VIN despite refreshing it. Have reached out to my SA to learn more about when to realistically expect it to arrive at the Rocklin CA store, I have limited...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Just noticed that among the documents on my order's landing page, the MVPA shows a VIN. Got my hopes up, but it's the same VIN that was pulled from me at EoQ when they couldn't deliver (and for 48 hours showed a delay to February). EDD now holding for next two weeks but no VIN assigned yet...

    Cool, just updated and see the same. Let's see if it also shows a VIN once one is assigned. Yet another way for people to check multiple times a day.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Had an EDD of 10/12 to 11/9, now the range has tightened to 10/15-11/9, still no VIN. I'll take that as a good sign that I'll actually get a car before Thanksgiving. Details in signature.

    In case anyone is interested, there is a Blue/Cream/19 plaid at the Arden store in Sacramento that is available for sale. PM me and I can give you my SA's contact information. I was dropping off my '13 P85 to swap tires and replace the 12 volt in anticipation of selling it once I get my LR.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    My EDD moved from 10/4-24 this morning to 10/12-11/9. Configuration in signature. Important update: I ran into someone a few days ago who was visiting family near me (need to be vague so s/he doesn't get into trouble, who knows if Tesla will investigate 'leaks') who works inside the factory...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    I wrote last night that my order with an EoQ EDD for which I received a VIN wasn't going to make it (still in production) had the VIN pulled last night and had a new EDD of "February". This morning it still doesn't have a VIN but now shows an EDD of 10/4 to 10/24. I have a hunch that since the...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Okay, you can't make this stuff up. I'm in Sacramento about 2 hours from the Factory. I was assigned a VIN a few weeks ago with an EDD of 9/21-9/30, fluctuated a bit and I called Tesla last week to nail down a delivery date for yesterday if possible which they did, said it shouldn't be a...

    Have (had) an appointment for delivery tomorrow at noon; even got a text message this morning asking me to text back 'YES' if i intended to keep the appointment and asking me to finish the payment and document details. Then at 1:45 got the following: "Tesla Update: We expected to receive your...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    In my case the last time I'd checked before the VIN finally showed up, the Tesla VIN plug-in didn't tell me that there was a VIN in the source code. The VIN appeared 30-60 minutes later when I next checked. Didn't have to scroll to the bottom of the screen, though, the plug-in had a little...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Proactively called Tesla to schedule my delivery next Tuesday as I have clinics and surgeries scheduled the rest of the week; they said the car is in final inspection at the factory and Tuesday should work, so they made the appointment for pickup at Rocklin on Tuesday at noon.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    As reported, a VIN appeared yesterday with EDD window today through 9/30. This morning the window narrowed to 9/27-30. I interpret this to mean that the car is being transported from Fremont (we're about 2 hours away) to the Rocklin delivery center to be prepped and I'll be given opportunity to...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    They haven't contacted me yet, I will call tomorrow to see if they can give me an accurate window (as if...). Hoping to pick up at Rocklin SC during daylight hours so I can look carefully before accepting. If not may have to settle on home delivery and all that entails.

    I used this once but unfortunately the tire's sidewall had been damaged by road debris at highway speed. We pulled off and tried it but the slime came out the side of the tire. This will work for nails and slow leaks in the treads but not for fatally-damaged tires. Tesla service came out with a...

    In the past I've been told that even a personal check was fine and did use one to do a significant downpayment last time; the policy may have changed or be different state to state, but they have the singular advantage of knowing where the car is 24/7 and being able to disable the car remotely...

    2014 TSLA S - Tire Sensor Failed.. Need Replacement. .Normal?

    I also have a 2013 P85. My TPMS sensors died a couple of years ago. I purchased new Baolong sensors on eBay and had them installed when I replaced the tires at America's Tire. They assured me the system would 'learn' the new TPMS modules but that was incorrect. A few weeks later I accepted...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Advice needed from those who've sold an earlier Model S to acquire their new car. My MS LR is holding steady for late September delivery, but given the potential for problems (I purchased both prior Teslas during EOQ madness), I'm planning to hold on to my 2013 P85 as backup for at least a month...

    Nope, I picked up my P85 in 2013 at the Factory but not this car. Either at the original Rocklin (north of Sacramento) store, or at the new Arden store that's 2 miles from my home. Not sure they're doing deliveries at Arden yet, I think they are. The 2 day window is mid-week, I'm a surgeon and...

    What kind of pavement are you doing this on? When I got my P85 7+ years ago, I had the same behavior when launching or driving on highways with grooved surfaces here in northern California. Tesla looked at it and said it was normal behavior with brand new tires on the grooved pavement and it...

    Posted elsewhere but never got a clear answer - I have the older referral award Arachnid 21s on my 2013 P85, was planning on putting the original 19s back on the car before selling and getting my older award Arachnids powder coated for my on-order LR to use next summer. Anyone know if they'll...

    A cautionary note about VINs appearing and disappearing.
