    Gaining access behind the black grill on the front of a refresh looks somewhat difficult. Has anyone ventured behind there? I have my communities gate opener module zip tied onto the outside of the grill. I think attaching it to the inside would be a safer alternative if the access is not too difficult.

    Has anyone done it or have any ideas?

    Any thoughts on if access is through the frunk or from underneath?

    On the X, which inspired the new front, you pop off the towing eye cover and pull tab A then tab B and you're in. Can somebody check a refresh S and see if that is true for them?

    I realized that there is space to get your fingers behind the front grill, and that the grill is somewhat flexible. I was able to mount a transponder behind the grill with zip ties.

    You can open the Frunk on the refreshed Model S the same way.
