That clearly is not correct. We have seen it retrofitted unless that video was faked! Sounds like the answer is it is not available for free.
My Tesla Y is a very early VIN one of the first on east coast. It has the pedestrian speaker from factory. Received update last night and did not get boom box. Kinda surprised because you would think having it from factory it would get update. This leads me to agree that they based it on build date not equipment.
I scheduled a Tesla appointment this week because I am having battery issues (max charge only shows 225 mile range) I will ask about boombox.
I poked around my car, removing the frunk tub is actually easier than dealing with the wheel well trims. Then just shed light into the passenger side area in front of the wheel and you'll see the drilled holes for the sound. And a zip tied wire harness over the holes.I think it is supposedly in the same location as the 3. In front of the front right wheel. I think you are supposed to be able to see from underneath. Check out this video on the AO 'defeat' plug installation for where that is.
Unless someone here has actually found it in a different place in the MY.
If you haven't had any PWS warning sounds since delivery, then you don't have the speaker. The vast majority of Model Y manufactured between March 2020 and August 2020 only had the wiring and no speaker. Only a few of the very low VIN cars had the speaker and the ones I've seen were manufactured in February 2020. Boombox doesn't currently show up on these early VIN cars. Our first Model Y was VIN 138x and it only had the wiring. Our second Model Y, VIN 181xx, also only had the wiring. Even when a speaker was added, Boombox didn't show up.I have vin 1xxx how do I check for the speaker? Also did not get Boombox.
Guess I’m confused. Why would anyone Want to add a noise maker to a beautifully quiet car? For how long have people been hacking or paying to get this annoyance removed now because your wheel well can fart people are in arms that they are frustrated and cheated somehow? Lol. I personally Love the fact that by law my car was exempt from this nuisance noise maker.
I hope those that do not have the speaker and want to remain silent can then again unplugging the speaker is a simple solution. Personally I much prefer no noise. I wonder how well the speaker and holes in a wheel well will hold up in winter weather crap? Really a dumb place to put this IMHO.
