Is it possible to recalibrate AP1 without going to a service center?

    We have a little over 50k miles on our Model S, and while it's been a dream car, we have regularly had autopilot woes. Our front camera had to be replaced, we've had two calibrations done, and I believe we now need a third (the dreaded "driver assistance features unavailable" message has returned, and it does not go away).

    To make matters worse, we have a road trip this weekend and Tesla can't get us in until next week.

    Is there any known way to perform a camera/radar calibration without going through Tesla service?

    This is not a Do It Yourself procedure. For the radar unit alone you need a "bubble tool" for vertical alignment and the "Toolbox" software for horizontal alignment.
    For camera alignment, you also need "Toolbox" and a special alignment target on a tripod.

    Bummer, but thanks. I look forward to the day when these kinds of procedures are more readily available.
