    The window doesn't close completely

    Please help. The driver's window stopped working. When trying to close the window completely, it opens back slightly, as if it sees an obstacle. Also, when opening the door, does not pass the glass. How do I fix it? Restarts didn't help.

    Strange window behavior

    May be new "feature"??? A couple of days ago, after getting into my sun-heated car, I rolled down the front windows to circulate outside air quickly. Then, when I went to close them, the passenger window moved to the top and immediately rolled down!!??? I found that, after I stopped the car...

    New Stiffer Window Seals on 2020 Model 3?

    I looked at a new one the other day in a show room, and the seals around the windows looks thicker and stiffer than my 2019. Can someone upload side-by-side pics or confirm? Also wondering if Tesla will do a retrofit if I pay. Heard this helps with noise.

    Rear window does not stay fully up, causing wind noise

    I took delivery of my SR+ last week and love many aspects of the car, but I'm having a few frustrations. Top of the list for me is that I get a lot of wind noise from the driver's side rear seat window, which will not remain in its fully extended position. The window will extend to its highest...

    Window won't stay up

    Just received my SR+ on Thursday. Everything is great except that when I try to roll my driver's side window up, it immediately goes back down 5-6 inches once it reaches the top. The only way that I can get it to stay up is to roll up the last 5-6 inches inch by inch. I tried "calibrating" it...

    Improvements on my new ‘used’ P85D

    Hey everyone. I finally pulled the trigger on my ‘new’ used Model S and it is a beauty! It’s a 2015 P85D, loaded to the gills. I actually think it has every option Tesla offered at the time, including rear facing jump seats, panorama roof, alcantara dashboard and carbon fiber trim. I’m thrilled...

    Are Window Seal Gaps an Issue? (Not regular condensation in glass)

    I noticed that on my driver side, the seal that's between the back seat window and the little window has some gaps on the top and the side (little window side). The passenger side is perfect and tight. I don't expect this to really be an issue, but I'm wondering what would happen if a little...

    Burying our head in the sand?

    Hey I was trying to be a little creative in the title, not very good I know. sorry I own a 2016 Model S, I've raised issues with all my windows having many (15-20) etched in vertical lines. This really annoys me! The first time I raised this as part of another thread (i hijacked) everyone...

    Model 3 - window plastic seal issue

    Got my car 1.5 months ago, I just noticed today the window plastic seals on both the front and back passenger sides are forming some little bumps, anyone has the same experience? I live in Oakland, so it’s not really hot, so heat doesn’t seem to justify the reasoning.

    "hissing sound" from driver window

    I have had my Model 3 LR AWD for a month now. It is amazing and I love it, but I have been hearing a hissing sound (as if a window is open a tiny bit). The sound is not consistent and sometimes it is very evident while sometimes not really there. I had to take the car to the service twice now...

    Passenger window rolls down when driver door is opened

    It doesn't happen all the time, but often enough for me to rule out accidental pressing of some buttons. Both passenger windows (front and rear) have done it, but not at the same time. When I open the driver door (whether from the outside to get in, or from the inside to get out) one of the...

    Water inside door after rain or car wash

    So I noticed that there's water inside the door after it rains or I go through a car wash even after a day or so. I noticed that because the windows roll down a bit, and when they roll up they're wet. If I roll the whole window down, it comes up all wet even a day after it rained. Is this...

    Tesla App Feature Wish - Crack the Window Open

    Warmer weather is finally here, as a first-year owner of Model X, I quickly notices the cabinet temperature heats up pretty quickly even when the outside temperature is just a tad north of 70 degrees. Wouldn't that be nice to have this feature in a mobile app that I could use to crack all...

    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...

    Quarter End Purchasing Advice

    I thought I would add my experience to the collective knowledge. I put a deposit on an S 60D right before the announced discontinuation. During the window to change configurations Tesla announced the price change on the 75D and the included glass roof. But they also discontinued the Air...

    The Tesla App Store

    What if Tesla created an App Store that would let you "install" free and fee features and upgrades? Apps that seldom required additional hardware. Just like your smart phone! These could go well beyond the standard vehicle configuration settings. The apps could let you personalize your car even...

    Window Tinting Awareness

    In case anyone has their windows tinted, they should be aware of an issue with the driver windows. My window tinter engaged the lever inside the door latch to make the door think it was closed, this caused the window to go up so he could tint the entire window. However, when he did this the...
