    Replaced two door handles in two month, no big deal, both were fixed under an hour :)

    I have a new issue with my 2014 Model S. The wheels are making a squeaking sound at low speeds.

    I've attached an audio clip: 2014 Model S squeak - Clyp - this is taken from inside the car, going about 10 km/h on a side street. I alternated between regenerative braking, acceleration, and friction braking and it makes the same sound no matter what. I can't tell from inside the car whether it's just one wheel or more than one.

    If this was a normal car I'd take it in to a brake guy to have a look but can regular brake guys work on Teslas? I live in Newfoundland so servicing is a major pain.

    If it’s the brakes I would think a non-Tesla mechanic could handle it.

    Take it to him and ask. Just make sure they use the proper lift points to not hurt the battery. Brakes are brakes.

    I had this too and the fix for me was to speed the car followed by harsh braking. Do this a few times and the discs will be clear of all the debris and the sound will be gone.
