    6,000 dollar AC failure and fix on Model S

    Just took my 2013 Model S P85 (50k miles) in due to some AC issues. The AC was making weird sounds and wasn’t working all that great. The vehicle is obviously out of warranty. Initially the estimate came back with a receiver and dryer cap replacement, desiccant bag replacement, high pressure...

    Suggestions for any reliable/experienced non-Tesla AC repair alternatives for 2017 Model X in Arizona?

    Tesla quoted over $4K (1/3 parts and 2/3 labor) to repair AC unit with new parts (chiller, evaporator, condenser, compressor), clean old lines for metal shavings etc. Seems VERY HIGH! Any alternatives for consideration?

    HVAC replacement prior to solar+Powerwall installation - Daikin Fit?

    I'm replacing two HVAC systems now before installing a solar panel + 4 Powerwall system in the fall. I've narrowed the compressor choices to Daikin Fit variable speed (2 ton + 2.5 ton) that will go on the existing ducted systems. Am I correct in assuming that these should be able to start & run...

    It was hot today and all 5 us piled into our 7 seater 2017 Model X 100D - I turned the A/C to MAX for the front and the rear. The compressor kicked on BIG time and I could feel the vibration of the compressor in the accelerator and brake pedals - is this normal? I noticed afterward that after...

    Recommended Portable Compressor

    Initially I was planning on buying the Tesla Compressor / Goo-Injector until I learned from this forum that the Goo-Injector is highly unlikely gonna work with the acoustic treated tires. I had bought a nice portable compressor for my Jeep, especially where I have 3 trailers and separate Winter...

    My "No Spare Tire" Kit

    I picked up my M3 on July 28, 2018. This is my first car without a spare tire. After doing a bit of research I have put together a kit for my M3 to deal with a flat tire if roadside assistance is not an easy option. My kit includes: Viair 88P Compressor (Purchased on Amazon) Slime Deluxe...

    A/C Compressor finally failed. But $3400??!

    For years we have been complaining that our A/C has been making way too much noise, especially the little thump that it makes when it cycles on and off, almost once a minute. So now the A/C has finally died. Tesla service wants $3400 to replace the compressor and a DC converter. I don't...
