    Tesla name badge / frunk badge

    Just wondering where I may order some good quality ( preferably some type of metal ) Tesla name badge for the rear of the car and the Tesla logo for the frunk! I've checked Amazon and used the search tool here but I'm a noob and may not know how to use the search correctly because it's the same...

    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...

    HI I would like the power frunk, but is it possible to just install the power latch part? I don't care about open and close as it seems quite slow. Just would like not to have to two handed closed the hood https://tesloz.com.au/products/model-x-frunk-power-lift

    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 flaps

    Noticed that my 2021 M3LR does not have the rubber flaps at the top of the frunk lid. From the photo you can see where they wold be connected. Have these been omitted?

    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...

    M3 Frunk Clip Reinforcement Fix

    Hi all, just got my M3 LR AWD today, soooo excited and happy. Little things here and there that needs to be address but not a deal breaker. I was lucky with my delivery. Anywho, I started inspecting everything, opening, closing, taking this off, taking that off, etc. I removed and tried to...

    Solutions for Auto Frunk 12V Battery Drain

    Hi everyone - long post but hoping for some guidance on troubleshooting "12v battery needs service" issues I'm experiencing with my auto frunk system. I'm using the Hansshow kit, I believe it's version 2, in a 2018 Model 3D. I've done a ton of research both through Google and this forum but...

    Does Tesla have an accessible log of events eg frunk open

    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...

    So-Cal Power Frunk / Trunk Group Buy Interest?

    So....I have a '19 M3 Stealth Performance...and I'm feeling a little "osbornish" about some of the new features. While living in SoCal...I don't think the heat pump will make a huge difference for me, specifically - but I do like the power trunk option. So I got to researching and there is a...

    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...

    Install automatic front & truck - customization.

    Hi everyone! Anyone located in Indiana know a place where they will install automatic fronk & trunk? Or I'm assuming this is something that we need to buy the kit and DIY it? I've been looking online for a shop that does this, but unfortunately I have not ran into luck besides PPF...

    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?

    I just picked up my MY and due to some horror stories I read/watched I decided to download one of the checklists and go over it with a fine tooth comb. I have never done this (at this level) on any other new car as I just assumed they would work/be good to go on delivery. Luckily they seem to 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

    Several times a week, I get an on-screen alert that my front trunk is open. I can see the edge of the trunk and confirm that it isn’t open. The warning appears for about a minute and then disappears. I’m worried about the “boy who cries wolf” problem and the possibility that at some point the...

    Need help opening frunk in 2016 with dead 12V

    OK - long story short, pulled MCU to get eMMC repaired. In the process, 12V died. Frunk is closed. What I've tried 1) Pulled nose cone to connect 12V charger. Oh, there's no positive terminal there anymore. 2) tried searching for every possible hidden frunk opening cable -- behind wheel...

    Any recommendations for e-scooter for frunk?

    Hi Folks, I found a free charger (6kwh) around where I live but the issue is that its 4 miles away. I was thinking of dropping the car off to charge for 6+ hours and then coming back to pick it up when I am done. Since I will likely need to do this quick to get back to work and dont want to ask...

    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.

    Looking for Do-it-yourself Door Alignment Information

    My passenger side doors have been misaligned on my car since I got it over a year ago. I'm understandably reluctant to bring the car to a service center to have this addressed (some of this stuff is on the due bill, which I still haven't had addressed): TL;DR: 1) Has anyone adjusted the...

    Fall leaves in the frunk!

    I am finding that the fall leaves are getting into my frunk! They're collecting everywhere. It seems like there should be a rubber or foam barrier under the frunk lid near the windshield, to prevent such intrusions. Besides the annoyance of finding my frunk and surrounding areas full of...

    PSA-Front trunk (frunk) unlatched while driving

    So, I was driving to work today going down the highway and all of a sudden I get this warning on my screen: “Front trunk unlatched-please close the front trunk before driving.” Really caught me off guard as I was doing about 60MPH. I pull over to the side of the road and close the frunk...

    Interchangable Model S FRUNK interior surround exchange

    I have a June 2017 Model S (2 wd )75. I'm curious whether the small front FRUNK luggage-space area structure (cardnoard type material) can be interchanged with an older, larger Frunk interior which has at least 2 x's the luggage capacity? Can it just be removed (snapped out) and replaced? Has...

    Hey guys Just wanted to hear what you guys are using more. I know we shouldn't be using the Trunk to much because of break in's But at the same time, I'm weary in opening and closing the hood. I feel this is something that should be fixed in the next iteration. I know people have swapped out...

    Wife is afraid to use frunk

    When we picked up our LR RWD a few days ago the Tesla delivery specialist made a big deal about closing the frunk lid. It needs to be gently lowered, hands placed just so, here and here, and then just the right force applied to close it fully. He said it's just aluminum and they are seeing a...

    Model Y cargo capacity

    I'm trying to make sense of the capacities of the Model Y - Musk mentioned 66 cubic feet of cargo capacity. I'm thinking that's with the seats folded down, which is slightly less than comparable compact SUVs. Any idea of what it might be with the rear seats upright? Any ideas of what it might be...

    Automatic Trunk/Frunk

    Has anyone replaced their OEM struts for stronger ones so that the frunk and trunk open automatically once you pop them? I did so with the trunk, but haven’t with the frunk yet. Thinking about it, just seeing if anyone has feedback due to the frunk being thin aluminum. Great having the trunk...
