Master charger replacement in San Diego, CA

I am looking to replace my Master Charger for a 2013 Tesla Model S in the San Diego, CA area. I asked Tesla Service in the Los Angeles area already and they do not want to do it if I get the Master Charger elsewhere. ($2385.23 vs ~$500+labor.) Part numbers are 6009278-00-F and 6009278-84-F.

Does anyone have recommendations of an auto repair shop that can do this, other than Tesla Service itself?

Would recommend Tesla service center. Got mine replaced last year. I waited 3 weeks for it to be done. Tesla also provided me a loaner vehicle while the car was in service.

Before you purchase a unit, used or new, it may be locally repaired. I understand that Tesla wants to swap out parts and not repair the part directly. I do believe I have came across videos a while back where they had taken a unit apart to only need a fuse replaced. YMMV.

Here are the fuses I bought ( I changed both) Your 2013 should be Gen 1 like my 2012.
A50P50-4 Fuse - Ferraz/Mersen,50A,A50P,Semiconductor,Fast Acting,500V,50 Amp | Allfuses.com

I would SPECIFICALLY recommend AVOIDING the service center for this. They typically install remanufactured chargers which are typically just chargers with he fuse replaced.

If you don't want to DIY, and want to drive up to Orange county Tony will fix it for you. If the fuse isn't issue he can also swap charger.

Andrejun: Don't you wonder a little: What caused the fuse to blow? Will it blow again soon?

What are the symptoms of a Master Charger going bad?

I've heard of the Red Ring as a tell. And a problem charging all the way. Im told I need a replacement master charger but I have none of those symptoms. My car acts like my charge port door is open.
