    Less than 2 weeks after delivery from Tesla I discovered that the left side reverse light of the roadster was not functional. Wonder if it ever was - will take this up with Tesla of cause.

    Looked for info on how to replace the reverse light LED - no success - only came up with Tesla's recomendation that LEDs are replaced by Tesla Motors or by an authorised repairer.

    Why - what are the issues ?

    On the Euro spec roadsters the Left side reverse light is a fog lamp.

    1000 - Thanks to Petefish.
    I checked - and of cause the left reverse light operates as a red fog lamp in my Euro roadster.
    But - I cannot find any info on this - not in my owners manual or any other hardcopies that came with my Roadster.
    Are these specs available somewhere on the web ?

    Ask your Advocate for a differences run-down. They'll tell you.

    I think it's much more likely that these items are on the list of supplier issues parts, and removing them is a faster path the getting the cars manufactured in number and delivered.
