    Removal of the liftgate without removing the glass

    Hi, my first post. I bought a used Model S P85 in February and LOVE it. Then I did the unthinkable and jammed the liftgate between the garage door and the doorframe and "accordianed" the liftgate and broke the glass. The nausea is just wearing off now, two weeks later. Wait...no it isn't. I...

I removed the two charging cables from the phone tray and that helped immensely, but there is still a rattle coming from the actual tray itself. Is it possible to just remove the tray altogether as I...

    Number of Clips for Front Door Panels?

    Hey, I think that my panel clips need to be replaced. Anyone know how many there are on each side of the front doors? I'm just going to order new clips myself and do it as process looks easy with proper tools. I'd rather order parts before pulling the door off. Thanks!
