Related comment, probably worthless: When I had first gotten my car, Signature, Sept 2012, the metal disc that is captured by the magnet -- stayed on the magnet, and the charge port door stayed open. I glued it with superglue. It has stayed fixed for 2 years. I never even bothered telling Tesla about it.
Looks like they are using a sticky rubber glue now. Maybe they need to use super glue.
Thanks for the post. I didn't know that the S85 didn't have the auto-close mechanism. I have a February S85D (709xx) and it has the auto charge port door.
I am so sorry I didn't suggest that. I had the exact same problem six months ago and didn't think it could still be an issue on newer cars
Glad to see you fixed it. I ran into issues with my door after 2 months of use. Another user suggested a thin felt pad over the metal disk on the charger door. This helps ensure you dont get the disks stuck together. In my case there was no glue but dirt or something was making it stick just a bit to not open. Good security to have.
Thanks, I will try that. My door still sticks, but its never locked closed like it did a week ago right before my trip.
