A Tesla Ranger showed me the correct pry tool for removing the Model S nose cone. This is a good thing to keep in your car (but not in the electrically-actuated glove compartment!) The nose cone must be removed to get access to the 12V jump terminal, which allows you to jump or charge the 12V auxiliary battery. The pry tool can be found here: Amazon.com: Steck Autobody (STK21730) Easy Pry Tool: Home Improvement To remove the nose cone: 1. The hood must be open. If the 12V battery is completely dead, you will need to use the mechanical hood release located under the passenger side dashboard. 2. If you store the pry tool in the lower rear storage area and your 12V battery is dead, you'll need to climb into the rear of the car from the front to access the mechanical rear hatch release, located next to light on the inside of the hatch. 3. Toward the right end of the nose cone, lean on the horizontal surface just rearward of the nose and insert the thin end of pry tool between the nose cone and the trim surrounding it. Pull the other end of the pry tool gently upward, and the first few fasteners will release. Work the pry tool around the nose cone until it is completely free. To replace the nose cone, simply align it and press into place.
