Just had my heater repaired…
$550 ish in parts. $1000 labor. Maybe they can afford to drop the battery for that.
I don’t suppose you’d ask them for us if they did drop the battery pack? It wouldn’t necessarily mean we’d have to, but if they don’t, that means a lot.
That answer would help me decide whether I’m replacing a heater core, or whether just a fuse and running the heater with the car disassembled to see if it pops again. Assuming we figure out how to get those parts from the frunk. Otherwise I’m leaving it at the service center for them to fix.
I’m curious as to when that Gen3 “E” part got released. Looks like the main part number is Apr 2016 for the S but maybe Sep 2015 for the X. Installed until Jan 2021, as it probably is not needed with the heat pump. I see references to a 2018 “D” revision online, so I’m leaning toward a new part for me.
