Car going to SC for AC issue

My car is 6 months old now and has always had an intermittent problem where the AC will stop blowing cold air for several minutes before resuming again. It happened on my way home from work yesterday at 109 degrees F, and again during lunch today. So I have scheduled a visit to the service center. Hopefully it will be a simple fix.

Other issues to address:
  • Passenger window groans and creaks when lowered/raised.
  • Plastic piece hanging down underneath the passenger side of the car near rocker panel.
  • Shuddering under moderate to hard acceleration. (I've read all the threads, but want this noted in Tesla's system in case a fix becomes available.)

15,500 miles so far.

UPDATE:

I just got my 2017 S100D back from the shop yesterday. See the image below for what was done.

I was told that there were intermittent communication errors between the air suspension and the AC. Since there was an updated harness, I would think this is a known problem.

I just had my 2017 MS in for service this week for a similar issue. The A/C would be blowing, but no matter what speed i set it to, the air flow did not change. It made noise as if the A/C was blowing harder when I raised it but actual air flow was the same. Called Tesla support, they ran diagnostics and determined i needed to have an "actuator" or something like that replaced.

My AC started intermittently working a couple of months ago as well, and they replaced some sensor due to an implausible sensor reading. Started happening again last week, and I’m going in for service to finally get my adaptive headlights this week, so I’ll see if they have any ideas this time.
