    I got this accessory with my TMS delivery. I don't see where/how to install this. Any thoughts.

    Mine was installed by the delivery specialist. You might want to ask yours.

    First of all, the instructions you've provided in your attachment are for clearly for the wrong vehicle. :D

    Here's a video I found on youtube - Tesla Quick Connection Phone Dock - YouTube
    Here's another thread as well - Phone adapter installation - It's for a model X but I'm pretty sure it's the same idea.

    Its a little tricky to install. I unscrewed the retention bracket from the adapter to remove the USB cable and help route it to the plug. It was a little tricky but should be doable in 5-10 min.

    Thanks all for the notes. I was able to install the connector phone dock. Now I am having an issue with the guiding brackets with my iPhone 7.
    My phone when slid through the brackets will not fit into the lightening connector. I have to pull forward the lightening connector and connect the phone.
    In that case phone does not have any support to hold it firmly.

    Can someone confirm if this is not an issue with iPhone 7 and I can recheck the way I installed the connector.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are two retention clip sides that keep the lightning plug pushed in the dock. Its possible that one side pushes it back less than another. I have been pulling my phone forward and it seams to have helped loosened the swing a bit and now its easier to slide the phone down. I do not have a case so that may help.

    you need unscrew the connector, push the connector all the way to the back and screw it back again.
    I did this on my car for my iphone 6S

    Stock retainer plates will only work if you have no case. You can remove the cable end retainer and put a wedge in to hold the connector high enough to make connection, but will have to use without the phone guides. I made a quick change dock for my S as my wife and I have different phones. Held in by magnet strips takes 2 sec to switch out and will work with slim cases on iPhones
