    Vehicle pulls right at low speed

    Our 2017 100D Model X suddenly started wobbling at low speeds and pulling really hard to the right. As the speed increases, the need to fight the pull lessens, but never quite goes away. Here’s a video of the issue: Any ideas what might be causing the issue? I turned off lane assist. We...

    Steering Wheel off center?

    Got my new 2021 Model Y (Long Range) delivered before new year. Didn't see any big issue on the outlook like other earlier Model Y owners posted on Youtube. Love the car so much. But did noticed two issues: 1) Limited movement on the driver side mirror. Seems this issue have been resolved...

    Where are the hex screws for MS2014 window glass tilt adjustment

    I have found a number of videos showing how to align/adjust the window glass on a M3. Unfortunately the hex screws they mention do not exist on the 2014 MS. Is is possible to adjust the RH rear glass to eliminate wind whistle? If the hex adjustment screws don't exist on the MS, what other...

    Problem with Camber during alignment check

    I recently got an alignment done on my 2017 MS 75 at the Firestone that Facebook Tesla Group recommended. I bought the car used about 3 months ago from Tesla. After the alignment, the car is now pulling hard to the left. The tech at Firestone said the left camber is maxed out and this is the...

    Alignment in NW Indiana/Southwest Chicago burbs?

    Besides the Tesla dealership, which places do you go to for tire alignment? my 2018 LR M3 just got new cross climate+ from Costco (they had worked on other model 3 previously) after 28k on the oem tires, and I’ve read that after getting new tires is the best time to get an alignment. I’ve...

    New tires needed after less than 30k miles

    2018 long range dual motor. At FSD upgrade the service center told me that front tires are almost bald on inner edge due to wheel misalignment. I ended up replacing all 4 at Costco and did a 4-wheel alignment afterwards at another tire shop. I don't recall ever doing an alignment on Toyota...

    Trunk hatch scrapping side when opening

    Has anyone noticed this? When I open my MY trunk, it looks like the plastic light/reflectors on the hatch touch the passenger rear lights and makes a sound like it wants to get stuck. You can also see the hatch move sideways when this happens. This does not happen when I close it. My guess is...

    Bumper alignment issue?

    Is it normal for the older MS to have a gap between the bumper and the headlights. It doesn’t really show well on photos but you can that I can push the bumper to align it with the headlight. It’s not that bad on the facelifted s. I can’t really see any damage under the bumper either.

    Hi, new Tesla owner here. I picked up my car last Friday, and despite my best effort to check out the car before bringing it home, I saw several fit and finish issues when I got home and spent several hours learning more about my vehicle.

    Recommended Alignment Shop in Bay Area for Modified P3D?

    I have Eibach springs currently, with too much negative camber. Want to install MPP camber and toe arms but need to find a place I can trust to handle the alignment. When I installed the springs I asked several local/chain shops and *none* of them would even touch the car. They all said I...

    Driver door chrome trim hits FWD chrome trim

    When I close my (driver) door, it makes a big "metal against metal" sound. I found out it's because the chrome trim runs into the FWD's trim. See attached picture. It didn't use to do that... Is there something that got out of alignment? Perhaps the position of the car when you close the FWD...

    Alignment @ non Tesla SVC - SoCal & I.E. areas

    Scored a set of used tires (90%) for a good price, my current tires seem to be wearing on the inside more. Has anyone done an alignment at other shops around SoCal? I'm assuming an alignment is not a "Tesla SVC" thing only. T.I.A.

    Service Observations

    A couple of quick thoughts as my Model 3 is in for service to replace a headlight, fix a bad actuator on the glovebox and check the alignment as it seems to be slightly pulling to the right. 1. I was given a Cadillac XTS as a loaner. Man I miss my Tesla. Apart from it feeling like I'm driving...

    Charge port door not flush? Am I crazy here?

    Is the charge port door supposed to sit this way? I already took it to service because: 1. Charge port door wasn't sitting flush/closing all the way 2. My app showed charge port door was open even when it wasn't They replaced my charge port door, and the app no longer shows it as open when...

    Hello all, I'm wondering if some of you more mechanically inclined members can offer me some insights... I had my alignment done by Tesla at approx 69k miles. I noticed when they were finished that the car (which always drove straight as an arrow) pulled slightly to the left after the...

My Roadster needs new rear tires and Tesla won't install the AD08s, only AD07s, and they want $299 each. I also need to get an NC-state inspection for the Roadster.

    First post here :) I thought I'd post in this section as there probably aren't many other RHD Teslas in other areas... I went for my first Model S test drive yesterday from the West Drayton branch. Having read up an awful lot about Teslas in general, spending a week watching various YouTube...
