I was told $2500 for each light. Mine have failed too! Cheapest fix is to go on eBay or any used site and look there. You can get the whole light at some places for cheap, around $250.00 I've seen. Don;'t go to Tesla! They'll rip you off!
So my tech was right. About $1k. What does that $420 adjustment mean?
What are you going to do with the bad light? I would absolutely love to see a teardown and to find out what's the thing that lights up that DRL and how it works. Maybe we could even find out how/why it breaks.
Not sure yet. I may be willing to work something out if someone is skilled enough to tear it apart and see if they can make a DIY solution. Is anyone here interested? I know there was a guy on the forums that was "upgrading" the old HID lights.
Onto my 9th replacement... Drivers side went out again. At least it's still under warranty because they were replaced less than 12 months ago.
Are both of these on the way out? How uniform are the lights normally? I think they've been fading gradually, so i don't really remember.
I had one of them replaced already in the past because one of the LEDs completely died, but i wanted to make sure these merit contacting Tesla. I did take a picture of both of the lights back then and the driver side one looked more even, but it's hard to compare without matching the exposure settings on the camera.

It's interesting that they haven't revised the part (or have they?) to address this problem. It seems appropriate of Tesla to not care if the part takes 4+ years to fail, but for them to fail multiple times within the warranty period has to cost them a fair amount.
