    So if We want to work on our cars ourselves, beyound changing wheels, is it possible to get the various torque specifications for thinks like suspension component bolts, etc? I just happen to be looking for specific stuff around suspension components, but really the question applies across the board. Obviously Tesla doesn't publish repair manuals for consumer use and isn't terribly DIY friendly. Anyone or any tips?

    Unless you live in Massachusetts where you are able to access the repair manuals, then nope!

    Does somebody know the torque spec of the TPMS locking nut/ring?
