    Older Model S A/C Service Considerations

    The service ended up costing $346.50 in labor which is just a touch over the $330 example but close enough. My wife says its been much cooler so we’ll see how long it lasts. Hope yours goes as well.

    Older Model S A/C Service Considerations

    Ah. Ok. Nice. I had never heard of the desiccant bag servicing. Looking at the service manual it does say to replace every two years: I definitely will go that way with Tesla service. Considering I don't think the A/C has been serviced at all in 9 years I'm not upset with a $334 bill to...

    I have to replace front upper control arms and sway bar after 64K/4+ years?

    Hi, Guicane. I ended up having Bellevue Service Center replace both arms.

Possibly my S60 went longer on miles due...

    I have to replace front upper control arms and sway bar after 64K/4+ years?

    Update: I was finally able to replicate in the garage, tried with wheel off but no go, however did get it with wheel back on. It's the upper control arm for sure. The ball joint seems bone dry. Going to look at options to maybe grease as-is to buy some time before any service.

    I have to replace front upper control arms and sway bar after 64K/4+ years?

    I know this is a bit of an older post but wanted to check back in anyway to see how the resolution went. We have a 2013 Model S, air suspension, 113K, and I have a very similar issue. I had Renton look at at and they replaced the front suspension aft links (both). Didn't help. I then did the...

    Supercharger - Leavenworth, WA

    This is probably a moot point but prior to the news of this Supercharger install I was looking at trying out the CHADeMO there. Anyone used this charger before? And if so, do you mind sharing how it went.
