    "Calibrating ride height and performing an alignment go hand and hand" says Tesla - is this true?

    My 2015 P85D sprung a leak in one of the air suspension hoses. I found the leak and sealed it with some plastic tubing and super glue. Tesla confirmed that the leak is fixed, so I just need them to make my air suspension level again, which I have read is a simple/quick thing but requires Tesla...

    Salvage Tesla Model 3 LR AWD

    If it was functioning well before disassembly, don’t you think you should spend the $ to have the shop reassemble it before you sell it? Seems like it would be much more attractive to buyers that way and you would make more than your money back.

    Replacement Fob for Model S - how much did you pay for the fob and how much to program?

    Many people have had success having Tesla program a fob they bought from a 3rd party, which is one of the reasons I posted about this. It is hard to tell if it is a policy, if it depends on who you get for service, or if it depends on if the fob is used and still linked to a previous vehicle.

    Does Anyone Have Pictures or Experience w/ Exped Megamat Auto/Duo in a Model S?

    I am in the same position, and have wondered the same thing. I am close to ordering the Megamat Duo 10 M, but wonder if the Auto would be an even better fit.

    Replacement Fob for Model S - how much did you pay for the fob and how much to program?

    My local service center gave me an estimate for $175 for the fob (1455940-00-B) and $19.50 for the programming. Sounds reasonable, so I guess I won't risk buying an "unprogrammable" fob online.

    Replacement Fob for Model S - how much did you pay for the fob and how much to program?

    Yes, I realize the newer vehicles allow for programming at home. For the 400,000ish Model S vehicles sold before that, though, like my 2013, a lot of fobs will still need replacing and programming.
  7. iamthewaughrus

    FOB Where do you buy it?

    Yes, but that is helpful because it sounds like it corresponds to the newer US part 1455940-00-A, as opposed to the original part 1007492-00-F. I assume that fob was for your 2014 P85+ ?

    Replacement Fob for Model S - how much did you pay for the fob and how much to program?

    $135 including the hour to program, or $135 plus the hour of labor (another $175ish) to program?

    Replacement Fob for Model S - how much did you pay for the fob and how much to program?

    There seems to be a lot of variation in experiences getting replacement fobs, even when getting them from Tesla. How much did you pay for the fob and how much for the programming? If you bought the fob from a third party, how did you know if it was programmable, or if it was already tied to a...

    Key Fob (additional) - eBay?

    I've read that the used fob can be used again if it was deactivated with the original car. If not, it is unable to be paired to a new car.

    Adding and removing FOBs in a 2015 Model S

    OK. I think fobs changed in 2017, so hopefully you ended up with one that is compatible. Good luck.
  12. iamthewaughrus

    FOB Where do you buy it?

    Do you happen to know what the part number was of the fobs you bought? I have a January 2013 S 85 and am going to buy a replacement fob and want to make sure I get the right one that can be programmed to my car.

    Adding and removing FOBs in a 2015 Model S

    Were the keys 1455940-00-A or 1455940-00-B? Did Tesla charge you around $85US to do each fob?

    Tesla Model S Key - Brand New Never Programmed

    I know this post is very very old, but any chance you have one left? My January 2013 S85 could use a second FOB and I can see that the first one has this same part # (1007492-00-F), so I think it should work for me once programmed.

    2015 Tesla Model S, 3rd Row, AP, MCU2 - $39k

    I zoomed in on a pic and can see it is a 70D. Looks like very good condition. Good luck with the sale.

    2015 Tesla Model S, 3rd Row, AP, MCU2 - $39k

    battery size? performance? dual motor? Pics of functioning info screens? Since you’re a dealer, are you sure FUSC will transfer without issue? Sounds like a fair price depending on those things.

    Model S Integrated Center Console - Brand New

    Sorry for my ignorance, but this is an item made by Tesla to install into 2012-2020 Model S vehicles to give the center console? What is the advantage of replacing the whole thing like this versus using an aftermarket drop-in console, like evannex? Thanks.

    Supercharger - Charleston, SC

    I drove by them last night, didn’t see any work being done on them, only saw one charger light out, and saw somebody charging. Very shortly after, the info on my screen listed 7 stalls available instead of the wrench icon, so I should be good to go. If not, I’ll fall back on the Chargepoint or...

    Supercharger - Charleston, SC

    Hi I’m coming into town for a couple days on a road trip with my family and I was planning on relying on the supercharger. I see now that it’s being serviced and says that maybe three stalls are available? Does anybody have any information on if those three stalls are really running and how long...

    I think I'm going to get those as well. So far so good for you with them, I assume? Stock split-spoke or slipstream wheels?

    48H ONLY - 2013 P85 RWD 208k miles $23k OBO *NEEDS HV BATTERY REPLACEMENT*

    Beautiful car, and sounds like a good deal to me. I've got a 2013 S as well, VIN 4408, but not a P like yours and not nearly in as nice a condition as yours. They are great driving cars, and somebody could probably get this repaired at Electrified Garage in MA or get a cheaper battery swap at...

    Lug Nuts: suggestions, problems, questions

    Yeah, Tesla's gen2 lugs use the covers, but the gen1 don't. All of these gen1s on my car look the same, so it's strange that so many of the fronts still fit the 21mm and the rears don't.

    Lug Nuts: suggestions, problems, questions

    I just bought a 2015 P85D and I am about to remove the wheels for the first time. It has generation 1 lug nuts, and my 21mm deep socket fits nicely over 9 of the front lugs and zero of the rear (11 of them it goes on maybe half an inch and then gets very tight). Assuming I am able to get these...

    FS VA: Motorsport Tech 4 20mm spacers for Model S/X

    6k miles isn’t long. May I ask what your setup was and why you are selling them? I have a January 2013 S with stock 19” slipstreams. How do I know if the slipstreams will fit over the old lugs and if the tires will rub at some angles? Thanks.

    Have your “battery care” guidelines been shared publicly? It sounds like you have as much insight as anyone as far as that goes, so I would be very interested in reading them. Thanks!

    Selling 19 Inch Model S Rims

    These appear to be Verde Axis wheels, yes? Matte black? It is not clear from the picture. Can you include pics of the numbers on them, confirming the size and offset? Do you know their history and condition? Are two of the center caps missing? Closeup pics of each wheel would help. Thanks.

    Can confirm that charging still doesn’t work as of today (Sunday 1/23) at 2:40pm. Connects to the car and then says DC charging failed.

    My cabin heater is not working. What's the easiest way to tell if my battery heater is/isn't working?

    I understand. I'm not knocking your process, just trying to understand the difference between the items and which one would be the better choice for me. The label "Gen3" on some of the PTCs made me think that significant improvements have happened, so I was tempted to go with the most recent...

    My cabin heater is not working. What's the easiest way to tell if my battery heater is/isn't working?

    Thank you, this helps. I have not had my charging impacted, even when it was 7 degrees F (-14C), so I guess my battery heater is fine! Any chance you have the part number that they replaced you heater core with? Tesla is telling me 1041265-00-F but 057 Technology is telling me 6007385-00-G.

    Possible to organize (for sale forum) a bit? Separate section for reservation sale/transfer? Maybe even separate sections for each model?

    Yes to dividing by model. Also time to require asking price in the title and to get better about marking as sold once it’s sold.

    PTC heater woes

    What part number did you end up going with? Tesla wants to replace mine (January 2013 S85) with 1041265-00-F, but I'm planning to do it myself and I can't find that part available. Do you know if the PTC part numbers are compatible, other than the shorter wires? I see a lot of 6007385-00-J (and...

    My cabin heater is not working. What's the easiest way to tell if my battery heater is/isn't working?

    Thank you. Yes, January 2013 Model S 85. I guess what I’m not sure about is at the dangerous temps, is the battery heater running to keep the battery from getting too cold? If my battery heater is broken, does it put my battery in more danger due until I fix it?

    My cabin heater is not working. What's the easiest way to tell if my battery heater is/isn't working?

    So Friday, after getting some snow, I went for a drive and noticed that my cabin heater was not working. Another longer drive yesterday confirmed this. I know it is probably the fuse in the DC/DC, the heater core, or both. But my question is, how do I tell if my battery heater is currently...

    Model S middle console - in like-new condition. Asking $300 shipped within 48 states.

    Thanks for the pics. It looks like it matches my leather color (gray), but not my wood grain. I’m hoping to find one that matches both, thanks.

    Car status missing?

    Did you ever find out more about this? Just bought S #4408 and from what I can see, it does not have "Car Status" either. It must have TPMS, since I am getting a "Tire Pressure Monitoring System Fault" error off and on.

    2016 Tesla s 75/ like new

    Would you consider $32k? I have a chance to buy another 2016 S75 for that right now, but yours is in better shape and has fewer miles, so I’d prefer yours if you can match that price.

    2017 Tesla Model S75D - 43K miles CLEAN

    Don’t bids only work in your favor if we know the current highest bid? Otherwise, it won’t get competitive. Did you find out if your free supercharging transfers or not? I’m guessing not, but Tesla can easily tell you for sure.
