Coding new drive unit with Tesla toolbox

I have replaced the rear drive (DU) unit on my 2013 Model S P85+.

Since the DU is from another wrecked tesla, it needs to be coded to my car.

I bought access to Tesla Toolbox for 1 day, and was hoping to use the commands listed under "dashboard" - "Rear drive unit replacement", but they do not seem to be relevant for my car (I cannot find them in the "actions" tab.

Im a bit stuck now, and suggestions for actions that can be used is highly appreciated:)

Have you tried to just redeploy software?

I think I've seen somewhere on here that you need some other app for interfacing with legacy cars but I might be off...

Another thought, toolbox 3 that they sell is limited I heard, you might need toolbox 2 which isn't offered anymore by official means

Hey, were you able to find a solution? I am replacing my drive unit this week and wondering how to solve this issue.
 
Not yet, i am repairing my own drive unit. But from what i experienced is that toolbox 2.1 is very complex. Does somebody has a manual for it?
What year is your car? I have a 2013. If yours is around that year... i might be able to help.. I successfully replaced my drive unit and the car is back on the road. Let me know if you need help.
