    Today I had a card sitting on top of the sliding console door when it was closed. When stopping at a light it went sliding forward and is now caught somewhere. Any ideas?

    I've got a card that slid in there too. I hoped it would fall into the interior of the console, but it never did. Anyone know how to get it out without disassembling the whole console? It's less effort to get a new card than to take the console apart.

    Same thing happened to me, I had to disassembled the console to get it out.

    I think the S and X are similar....the little cubby spot has two clips. If you put your hands in there palms down and push it will pop down and you can get the card.

    This is where tesla connects the computers to our cars.

    Thanks for the ideas. Does take a bit of pressure. The card is found. Almost as disturbing as removing the nose cone on our 2015 MS.

    Yeah, I don't want to do it too many times.

    While I have mine apart, I put a little piece of foam weather striping to fill the gap and make it harder for card to fall back there.
