    Model Y power trunk won't open, ONLY on first try of the day!?!

    Just as the title states, the first attempt of opening my trunk on my Model Y, on any given day results in it opening a few cm, waiting, then shutting immediately. If I try to open it again, it works as normal and will work normal for the rest of the day. I cannot replicate this, unless I wait...

    Rust on trunk strut connections

    Just noticed this for the first time, sunlight hit at just the right angle. The strut connections to the car are all rusted, all four of them to varying degrees. Trunk still opens and closes fine. Warranty expires in a month but is this just wear and tear? If I request service I won't know if...

    How to transport skis safely in Model Y

    Hello skiers! My preference is to transport skis inside the vehicle rather than to use a roof rack or hitch rack like a normal person. Pros: Skis stay clean Skis are less likely to be stolen Less equipment to buy, install, maintain No getting covered in road grime when reaching up to the roof...

    Should I attempt to have Tesla adjust trunk alignment?

    So I noticed the passenger side of my trunk is shifted in a few mm more than the roof panel. The other side however is perfect. Think I should attempt to have Tesla adjust it or are they just gonna mess it up worse or cause a seal leak?

    What are these in the trunk?

    Working on sound dampening the trunk. These two trim pieces are giving me grief. Anyone know what they are and what they do? Can they be covered or do they need to breathe? My guess is pressure relief. Thanks!

    Trunk disassembly / modifications / sound dampening

    Has anyone taken apart their trunk in order to add a subwoofer and/or sound dampening material? My UHFS subwoofer sounds very boomy and I’m considering adding some sound dampening material. There appears to be some sound proofing already underneath the carpet. Additionally there is some type of...

    2021 M3P Trunk Fixed

    Not sure if this has been talked about before, but I wanted to share a recent Technical Service Bulletin from Tesla that fixed my automatic trunk. There is an addition of an O Ring now from Tesla to the struts of the trunk of the Model 3. This O-Ring prevents water from entering the top of the...

    Boot trim replacement

    Hey all, Bought a used Model X but the boot trim accumulates water underneath and I'm guessing replacing it would solve that problem? Can anyone advise if their MX has the same issue? I have found some parts on ebay but not entirely sure which one that is? Here's what I found...

    Rear trunk won't close

    After loading some (OK, a lot) stuff into the trunk of my 2015 MS, the trunk would close part way, beep, then open back up. I assumed it was because it was too full, and the trunk was bumping against something when it tried to close. I rearranged some items and tried again, but the trunk beeped...

    Trunk Damage - Should I replace it?

    So this happened. I opened my garage door while my 2021 Model 3 trunk was opened, and the garage door caught the trunk, pulled it back and somehow bent the panel on each side of the trunk. The trunk also came off the right strut but I managed to put it back on with my hands. Trunk works...

    2021 Model 3 trunk lid limiter

    So when our Model 3 is parked in the garage, and not pulled up far enough, opening the trunk can bang against a metal support for the garage door. We're usually careful to pull up, but I experimented with limiting the amount of lift for my trunk lid so it stops right before it would hit it...

    Rigid Model 3 Trunk Organizater in Canada?

    Found this trunk organizer for the Model 3, looks pretty nice: Tesla Model 3 Custom Fit Trunk Organizer (Upper + Lower Set) Love the stacking ability. However, ordering it from the US looks like it'll be kinda more expensive than I'd like. Anyone seen something similar in Canada?

    Trunk Overloading

    Trunk hatch scrapping side when opening

    Has anyone noticed this? When I open my MY trunk, it looks like the plastic light/reflectors on the hatch touch the passenger rear lights and makes a sound like it wants to get stuck. You can also see the hatch move sideways when this happens. This does not happen when I close it. My guess is...

    Is this a defect (Crack) or per design in M3 Rear Trunk ceiling?

    Hi All, I was looking at the ceiling in the rear trunk of my new 2020 M3 and noticed something funky in the metal ceiling cuts. Do you see this in your M3’s as well? Or is this an issue with mine where they cut it and then tried to glue it back together? Please see attached pics.
