    The AC on my 2 month old MX 75D decided to stop working today. There was a loud hiss coming from the vents and only warm air. Drove straight to the SC in Bellevue, WA and handed the car off to the techs. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. On a positive note, I was given a MX 90D that I'll be driving around this weekend.

    I heard that the O ring on the refrigerant can fail (saw it on a Bjorn Youtube video). I wonder if this happened to my MX?

    Got my MX back today. Turns out that it was the O ring failing and leaking refrigerant. Seems like this is a common issue for these cars.

    I think they either had a bad batch of O-rings, or they were getting installed incorrectly for a period of time.

    My Tesla is pretty new. The AC did not work when we first got it and of course, it was hot that day. It did turn out to be the O-ring. They replaced it and it has been working since. I hope your problem is easy to fix!
