Any fix for the “death rattle” yet?


Nov 30, 2019
I drove mine the other day when it was cold and heard the death rattle every single time. I know there was no fix for it about a year ago but is it fixed now? Should I make an appointment bec the last time people were being told that Tesla is still trying to fix the issue.
So I have had the service bulletin fix applied twice to my 2017 model X and after 6 months it has come back both times. Heading into the dealership tomorrow to discuss why the fix is not permanent. At first you will notice it randomly, then consistently and then your range starts to drop and it happens all the time. Has anyone lemon lawed their Tesla for this issue?
