    Anyone know what this blue liquid is?

    Brand new 2021 model 3 I just parked it after delivery came back and saw a puddle starting from the end of the vehicle all the way to the front. (Parking lot slopes very slightly down towards front of car).

    Leaking 3-way valve

    I just purchased a used 2015 85D and after driving with the heat on, found a small puddle of coolant under the front of the car on the passenger side. It only appears when I run the heater (which is why I suspect the previous owner never noticed it as he was in a warmer part of the country)...

    Air Suspension deflating slowly - SC will replace bascially everything

    My 2015 P85DL is losing air in the suspension slowly overnight. It seems to be the rear right that drops and sometimes both rear and front right are deflated while the left side is still inflated, and other times it's both sides in the rear that seems deflated. As such it is not that big a deal...

    2021 M3 Roof Leak?

    After the first rain in SoCal in months, I just noticed my headliner and side panels with some stains on them. I've only had the car for a month so these stains really stood out. I felt them and they felt damp. I realized that the light rain the day prior may have caused a roof leak. I took...

    First rain of the season outside and inside the car.

    Model 3 purchased Oct 2019. We had our first rain of the season overnight and when I went out to the car this morning there was a puddle on the center console. Looked up and the headliner near the rear view mirror is damp and slightly detached in the driver side as compared to the passenger...

    Tesla Solar and Water Leakage

    Every solar company - except Tesla - explained that the best way to install panels (for a customer who also wants to install a new flat roof) is to first tear off the old roof, then install the solar supports, then lastly install the new roof around the supports. Tesla explained they do not...

    Leaking (and struggling to open) pano roof on 2015 P85D

    I opened my panoroof the other day for the first time since I bought the car a few months ago. Since then it leaks but only when driving. My inner seal is deteriorating although the odd thing is that it looks worse on the drive side, the leak is only happening from the passenger side...

    Coolant "leak" caused possible pump failure???

    Well, good day went to bad... Having Homelink installed today by Tesla mobile service, got it working, took it for a quick test to open upon arrival, works great, but noticed blue fluid flowing out from under the car... Luckily, the mobile service was still "close by" so flagged him down. He...

    Brake fluid leaking at caliper

    This morning I noticed some wetness around the rear passenger wheel. Sniff test and visual inspection lead me to discover it is brake fluid. I did not think to check for leaking calipers when I accepted delivery just over a week ago. I've sent a service request message Tesla using the app. I...

    Leak on Drive Unit?

    So the amazing guys at Unplugged Performance in Hawthorne, CA installed some moderate lowering springs a couple weeks ago on my M3LR. They mentioned they saw some dirt buildup of what looked like a leak from the front drive unit and that I should get Tesla service to take a look. Well, I did...

    Model X Shut Down while Driving - WARNING!

    Tesla Owners, be warned, I love my Model X, but what happened to me today is not acceptable and could cost someone their life. Please read and be aware. Nov 6, 2019 @ 8:00am I got into the vehicle with my 1 year old and pressed the brake to turn it on. The AC turned on as normal and everything...

    Model X Front Door Windows Wind Noise Leak Test Video

    I had started another thread on a wind noise issue I had with a new Raven Model X. After weeks of poking around I managed to find it and fix it myself. This is not a Video on how to fix it but how to test for it. I see a lot of folks complain about Wind noise and I thought I'd create a quick...

    Leaking boot

    The weather has been particularly miserable today and I’m pleased I purchased the all-weather mat for the boot. I opened it later this morning to find that rain water had leaked through the seal - top centre! (FYI I did not see any of the water leak through once I actually opened the boot.)...

    Adhesive dripping from under the touchscreen

    Anyone else seen this? 2013 Model S Since it got hot this summer (3 weeks), I have had clear sticky fluid (like an adhesive) dripping from below the screen, into the cubby, and down into my center console. At first I thought it was from the rearview mirror after my windshield had to be...

    Leaking PW 2s? #PowerwallRegrets

    Should I have got a generator? Two PW2s installed end of November -- 2 backups total -- 1 during install for 5 mins, 1 in Dec for a few hours. FINALLY got charge up to 99% (never saw 100) -- says app. Why? Vermont-based - snow on panels from Nov-Apr. It was wonderful to see 99%. For a few days...

    Drivers Window Leak

    Since day one I have complained about a leak at the back corner of my drivers window. When at cruising speeds you can hear air noises and also when you wash the car or are in heavy rain driven from the left rear, water enters the cabin. It's not much and after taking it to Tesla a number of...

    How often and how many times have you had flat tire?

    Reading this thread What do you do when you have a flat tire on a MX made me wonder how often and how many times MX owners have had flats? Seems like many have experienced at least one in the first few months of owning a MX? Some statistics will be good... I had my first flat yesterday in just...
