    Beeping noise when rolling window up

    When I roll up the window on my new model 3, the window makes a robotic beep noise when it reaches the top. Basically when it pushes closed it makes the sound only on one window. Is this a known problem? Is it a big enough problem to schedule a mobile service appointment?

    Mind of it Owns Windows

    Hello, I have noticed a weird glitch in the past month of December 2021. Sometimes when I close my MY's front driver's side door, the other 3 door windows will retract about 4 inches on their own. Then I have to roll them back up. I am not sure what would be causing this issue at all. Anyone...

    Got a bad tint job. Not sure what I should do.

    Had my new M3 tinted last week. I picked it up when it was still drying so didn't think much of it. This is the first time I got a car tinted, so from the outside things looked good. The next day, I started noticing bubbles, this wrinkle in the back, the alignment issue, and even a scratch on...

    Keeping power on

    Hey I’m wondering if there is any options to keep the power on in the car as I’m parked up so I can roll my windows down (with the key fob inside).

    MX Window locked annoyance

    Somewhere before 2021.24.4 Tesla changed the Window behavior on my X. Really frustrating. While my X is unlocked, I would always be able to put Windows up or down from the driver and passenger Window door buttons. The new behavior locks out ALL windows about 20 seconds after exiting the...

    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...

    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...

    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).

    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...
