    Afternoon forum
    Had my P90 start making a moaning noise,which Tesla could not hear
    It progressed to a terrible grinding noise
    Which Tesla could hear and they replaced the rear drive unit

    Since getting the car back I have noticed the car rides lower, and is much smoother
    But the regen is sometimes not even there

    Not sure if there is a break in period

    I have not launched it yet. Really enjoy having my car back but need my regen

    What are your thoughts on the regen?

    My thought is to contact a service center if you think its a problem.

    Did you check your regen settings to make sure the car isn’t set to low regen? I’ve had my settings changed by service when they check things.

    also when you drive do you notice the orange dashes? Only asking because it’s gotten colder out. Maybe your battery is cold. I know for me for the first 10 to 15 minutes of my drive I have barely any regen until it heats up.

    If your battery is cold soaked/it’s your first drive after sitting in the cold, regen will be limited and the energy consumption graph in the IC will show orange dashed lines until the battery is sufficiently up to temp. When it does, you’ll see full green when the car is regenerating properly.
