Model S Refresh Passenger Side Repeater Camera not flush


Mar 24, 2021
New York
Despite the fact that I love my new Model S Refresh LR I have been extremely unlucky. First issue was the HV Battery, replaced after 3-4 weeks and all good. Next was to fix the top of the center console and today was what I was hoping to be the last remaining item to fix. The passenger side repeater camera isn’t flush to the car, there is a gap. When the car was in last for the center console they said no big deal, we just need to order a new repeater camera and will use mobile maintenance for the install. Today was the day, the mobile technician showed up and got to work. 45 minutes later he tells me the new camera has the same issue and I need to bring the car in for this to be fixed. He basically said the camera doesn’t lay flush to the body of the car. Anyone else with this issue?

Not sure as you didn't post a picture, but on MY's and M3's they don't sit flush anymore either by design, The top of the unit sits away from the body slightly. I was told this was to assist with drainage and every MY I've seen is like that so the new S could be the same.
