We’re you able to find where you can buy a new hitch panel? I want to buy a 2nd panel to cut around the hitch receiver but still want an uncut panel for when the receiver is not used.Anyone knows how to get a replacement panel for the new Model 3 panels? I cut a hole around the hitch in the panel to not leave a huge opening in the undercarriage with the hitch installed.
The part number for the panel is 1135412-00-A (see https://epc.tesla.com/#/systemGroups/47312 or if the link doesn't work, it's under Model 3 > 12 - Exterior Fittings > 1203 - Undertray And Diffuser > Rear Undertray And Diffuser). I suspect you'd have to order from Tesla directly, for now.
I have failed to find any useful information on a trailer hitch for the model 3.
Ideally the wiring and hardware would both be installed, but just a hitch would allow for a very desirable bike rack.
Any links to a solution are greatly appreciated.
Or stories of how you carry two bikes on or in your model 3.
I'm bumping two old threads with this request as the question seems to be asked often and never gets anywhere.
I dont want to run the 12v to the battery...you have to remove the seats, drill through the wall, etc. It seems you can just get the 12v power from the harness.I don't understand your post. There are hitches that include wiring harnesses (examples already posted above), and the instructions to install them. What imore are you looking for?
Looks promising, hoping somebody can confirm it:
"All Australian cars have a socket for the OEM trailer wiring harness taped to the crash bar. This includes 12V, earth and CAN bus wires. I cut this off and used the 12V and earth for my trailer harness. I did have aspirations of using this to power my fridge however its only powered up whilst the car is in drive so its not much good for that."

Does this mean we can just wire into this harness with the supplied wiring from stealth hitches?
Given that I started the thread with a photo of the cover; yes
