    Where could mice be entering the HVAC system?

    Long story short we caught a mouse in our MX, along with a bunch of fruit loops and other snacks (we have a 2 year old) that started blowing out of the HVAC system. Something appears to be stuck in the HVAC from that mouse and is now having a burnt smell to it. I removed the passenger dash where...

    A mouse ate my Tesla

    My 5-month-old Tesla Y started going haywire when it lost its battery coolant. Turns out that mice had nested behind the Frunk and chewed through the coolant hose. I could drive the car to the Service Center, but non-warranty repair is a twenty dollar hose and more than $700 in labor, plus two...

How can I remove the rubbery plastic cover all around above the front tire and the little half-moon-ish molding around the fender edge to get to the...

    Backbench Gaming in the Tesla Model S using a ..... MOUSE!

    First of all: A USB port connected mouse works in the Tesla. Now you may think: “So What???”. Well, first of all it allows you to perform all and the same actions on the 17 inch screen as can be done by touching the screen. So in theory a driver using Autopilot can literally sit back. Not...

    TeslaOS: What will connect via the USB port?

    A wired mouse will connect via the USB ports in the Model S but (in my experience) a wireless one will not. A thumb drive will connect. A wired USB keyboard but not (in my experience) a wireless one. What have you tested?
