    How to remove passenger seat?

    Ok got that - but before you can move the rear seat, you’ll have to remove the plastic trim which means removing the emergency brake handle as well. Thanks to ML Auto for all his suggestions - I've documented my progress in the following pictures: On the bottom of the emergency brake handle...

    How to remove passenger seat?

    Great thanks for the advice! That worked to get the last seat bolt out. I used a 6mm ball-end hex bit and that was the right tool. Now how did you get the bolt from the emergency brake off that’s connected to the seat? Thanks!

    How to remove passenger seat?

    Hi everyone - just wondering if there’s a trick to removing the last bolt on the passenger seat towards the door and glove compartment. It’s a tight fit with the seat and manual tray it the way to get a tool in there. I can loosen the bolt with a hex key but I can only turn in small increments.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    My 2010 roadster has almost 100k miles on it and is 12 years old. Battery had 185 miles (standard range 80% SOC) new, now charges to 160 miles. Maybe in another 12 years the battery would be at 135 miles which would still have over 70% of the original battery capacity.

    Tesla Y Road Trip Experience and Tips

    Going from San Diego to Dallas (and vice-versa) means that you'll most likely be driving above 55 mph (max speed limit of 75 MPH in AZ/NM/TX) so your Wh/mile will be much more than 250. We just completed a short trip to Bisbee AZ from the SF bay area and our average Wh/mile was 353 in a 2018 M3P...

    Two Tesla destination chargers capped me at 10 kilowatts/he. Do i have a wrong setting?

    Back in the old days, people had 70 or 80A chargers onboard their cars (Roadster/Model S/X) when superchargers weren't very prevalent. 80A*208 = 16kW max. Now that lots of superchargers are around, it didn't make sense for people to spend extra money for fast AC charging.

    Is it safe to use 70 amp breakers for home wall connectors to charge Model 3?

    Basically what the Canadian code is saying is that because the gen3 charger could draw a maximum of 48A you need a breaker size of 48A + 20% margin = 57.6A or a 60A breaker with at least #6 gauge wire. If you had a 40A breaker, you would be limited to 32A charging and if somehow there was a...

    Extremely Disappointed With Model S Range When Driving on the Highway at 35F

    The navigation map will now let you know if stalls are out of order or if all stalls are being used. There are 3 supercharging stations right before Tejon ranch so you can use those to get over the Grapevine.

    Passenger restraint system fault - Tesla replacing seat?

    The issue is that the magnetic field generated by the passenger seat harness will screw with the sensor. You can move the seat back/forth to get rid of it or pay Tesla (if not under warranty) to put in a magnetic choke on the harness. No seat replacement is needed, just tipping it down to get...

    Charging Rate Control with Tesla App

    So you're saying you don't see the left arrow on the 48A button for the Model X? On a different note, I've seen at least two Gen 2 wall chargers that can't handle above 56A (breakers, DIP switches, etc are correct) but you're able to charge your Model S at 80A.

    Decaying Level 2 public charging infrastructure

    Do Tesla folks not enjoy driving their cars anymore?

    It's just the novelty factor - once people realize FSD drives like a grandma then I'm sure it'll go back to "how high is your average kWh/mile?"

    Saying Hello From L.A.

    One thing to check is the camber of your tires especially the rear ones - when I first got my roadster I would wear out the rears in less than 10k miles and it would be mostly on one side of the tire! If you have it in your region, change your electric billing to an EV rate - usually that would...

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    It's 117 miles from the Pismo Beach SC to the Ventana Big Sur SC plus you really can't go 75MPH on highway 1 so even with the elevation change that's plenty of charge. On highway 101 you have even more options like Atascadero, Paso Robles, Greenfield, etc. I agree that some places out in the...

    Tesla Supercharger network

    The costs for supercharging have been going up and some locations have peak pricing - I had been keeping track of my supercharger "costs" just out of curiosity. From Oct 1st 2018 to now I've been "charged" $3859.38 for 299 supercharging sessions for an average of $12.91/session.
