    Hi guys,

    So, I'm trying to setup a cooling/heating loop for my now-standalone 85kWh pack. See Pics/Info: Inside the battery pack if you're not familiar.

    Does anyone have any idea what these fittings are? They were not easily removed from the existing tubing, and the existing tubing does not seem reusable.

    While I'm sure I can find something that will fit and work with the modules (see the bare aluminum male end in the pic above) I'd prefer these if they are available elsewhere... I just cant seem to find any information on what they are, and the writing on them is not readable.

    They slip over the male end, then the little plastic clip snaps down to hold it in place over the little nub on the male piece.

    Any help appreciated!

    Looks very similar to a Parker Hannifin Safe Lock SAE J2044 Fitting. Eaton makes a SAE J2044 fitting as well. So I am guessing some type of SAE J2044 fitting, but maybe custom to Tesla's specs.
