    I have a 1.5 Roadster and I have noticed when I pump up the lumbar support that it bleeds down within 5 minutes. The passenger seat works fine. Has anyone else had a similar issue?

    Thank you

    Hi,

    1.5 system must have been changed for later cars, possibly due to issue you experience. On my 2.5 they offer inserts held in place with Velcro. I think they may offer different sizes, I jus t asked for a moderate lumbar adjustment when I ordered the car. Perhaps a modification can be done to the earlier cars, at least to allow the insert option? Just an idea.

    That would be nice and I have no idea what Tesla will do. I have let them know that it is not critical and can wait until my servicing this summer. But I really would like it fixed.
