    My sentry didn't pick up someone vandalising the frunk.

    Hi. Our car was parked in a local carpark, and when we returned to it, it had words etched into the frunk and 5 horizontal long scratches along the front. There were no sentry events recorded. We were confused as to why, so have run a few experiements. It seems if my 10 year old daughter...

    Dead 12V Battery Issue - Frunk doesn’t open

    I was away for 6 weeks and when I came back I found my 2021 Tesla is dead, after researching I realized that my 12V battery is dead. I tried opening the doors and frunk using the app and the card. Nothing worked. I did exactly what it said in the manual by connecting 9V and 12V batteries to...

    Cybertruck Frunk

    The original CT frunk opened like a regular hood. Recently, it's been proposed that the hood would include the front part as well like the Ford lightning, but then some remarked that at least some of the headlights need to remain forward facing like the FL to be legal. I haven't seen anyone...

    Continuous high pitched noise from the frunk

    Hey everyone, I'm a Model 3 (2021 version) owner since last week, I got it used from Tesla inventory. It's a really fun car to drive and I'm happy about it. Anyway, I noticed that when the car is parked and in deep sleep, there's a continuous high pitched noise coming from the frunk. It's very...

    Is there anyway to replace the bolt that the frunk strut brackets are secured to?

    Is there anyway to replace the bolt that the frunk strut brackets are secured to? Please see the attached picture and the circled part for the part I’m referencing. Again, I am looking for a replacement for the BOLT, not the nut. Thank you!

    2014 S - Water in the Frunk

    Have other owners of this era Model S had issues with water collecting in the frunk? Seems related to driving in the rain, but there’s no reasonable way to let the water drain out, it seems. The seal around the top of the tub looks complete and pliable (eg not old and rotten) and there’s not...

    Accidental frunk openings with iPhone iOS16 widget

    I'm curious if others are running into this - I updated to iOS16 about a week ago and added the Tesla widget to my homescreen (the one attached). Since then, I've had 3 occurrences of the frunk opening accidentally, presumably from me hitting the frunk button somehow. One time, I was using the...

    Replacement retaining clips for frunk cowling?

    Does anyone know a part number, link to purchase, or 3D print file for the retaining clips that hold the model y frunk apron / cowling to the siding shown here? I’ve got a broken one, and I anticipate needing to replace these more than once. Thanks!

    How to add a 12v cigarette socket in frunk (Model Y 2022)?

    I have a 2022 Model Y (which has the 12v Li-Ion battery). I would like to add a 12v accessory (cigarette) socket in the frunk so I can use it to charge my OneWheel [an electric skateboard] which I store in my frunk. Can I simply connect a 12v accessory socket directly to the 12v battery...

    2022 Model Y frunk water puddle

    Recently accepted delivery of a 2022 Model Y (LR). It was a sunny day. Next day after vehicle got wet (from a manual car wash), I noticed water puddles on both sides of the interior frunk. The vehicle was dried properly before the frunk was opened. Has anyone else have this issue. Is this...

    Model S Frunk and App

    Is it correct that it is not possible to open the frunk with the phone app on the 2022 Model S? The manual seems to say otherwise. Any other way to open the frunk without using the interior monitor screen or Fob?

    Frunk Thoughts or Engineering Disaster

    So who thinks about a Frunk? Most of us assume there is one.. I mean, we used to put engines there right? Now the engine is gone and at worst, there is a small electric motor and some supporting electronics. Being curious, I poked around some.. this is what I have found so far and it's been...

    I’m an idiot. Please help. Closed frunk with disconnected battery.

    The instrument cluster on my S died and I’m in the middle of replacing it with a ReelDeal replacement screen. I had to leave for a while in the middle of the project and, in a moment of sheer idiocy, I completely closed the frunk with the 12v battery and the HV battery disconnected. Is it...

    2015 85D Frunk/Front Trunk Sensor - Diagnostic Assistance?

    Recently, I've had an issue where my 2015 85D repeatedly believes the front tunk/frunk is open, but then closed, and open again. This, I believe, is the root cause of the app sending me alerts that the alarm has been triggered. I only had that happen once over the summer, but in the last few...

    Question about water ingress surrounding frunk

    Hi all, Today I power washed my 2021 Model 3 SR+ at a local auto wash and when I lifted the frunk lid after finishing I was shocked to see water and soap on the plastic surrounding the frunk. The frunk was dry however - the hefty seal around it definitely prevented any ingress. I removed the...

    12v battery failure, Unable to access frunk

    So it looks like my 12v battery is in its death throws today on my April 2018 M3 (50,340 miles :mad:). I received no warning messages (apparently like many other owners). I drove home from work this afternoon and went to leave with my wife 2 hours later. The drivers side door opened, however...

    Frunk lid seal not attached all the way around?

    Talking about the big upper seal held on with clips, not the lower rim weather stripping. See pics. Is it supposed to be flush all the way around? Mine is attached in the front (by the headlights) with some kind of adhesive. So it's flush with the lid and I can't get my fingers in there. I think...

    So this afternoon as I was getting into my my m3 in my driveway I noticed my driver wing mirror pushed all the way outwards which was odd...when i entered the vehicle I saw the message 'frunk open' (have not used my frunk in months). I checked and indeed the frunk was not latched down. All else...

    Frunk Unlock Button in phone app

    I would suggest that the phone app for my Model Y be changed so that the frunk unlock button on the main page is changed to open the rear hatch instead of the frunk. Hatch is used by everyone way more often than the frunk. Basic user interface design to put the most used buttons where the least...

    Erroneous "Frunk Unlatched" warning!

    Dear Folks, My Tesla claims the frunk is unlatched when the front end of the car gets really hot (from air temperature/sun on the hood). The warning goes away once I've driven a few minutes. Discovered this on a road trip to Lake Tahoe -- not amused! I've got a service appointment for...

    How picky should I be?

    Did my Hansshow frunk kit come with the wrong part?

    I have the Hansshow frunk kit v3. The Soft Close cable has only one grey plug on one end. The install video that Hansshow provides is for v1, and it shows two grey plugs, as does the printed instructions that came in the kit and appears to be for v3. Also, there are two receptacles for grey...

    Front Trunk warning

    Is the emergency release button in the Frunk disabled when the car is in motion?

    My wife won't put anything in the front trunk because she's afraid it might bump against the emergency release button while driving and the trunk lid would fly up, blocking the windshield.
