Hi!
I noticed my Model 3 2021 doesn't have a rest food pedal, it's just carpet and the floor liner is not covering so after two months of use it's pretty messy.
Any recommendation or product I can use to cover this area?
Thanks in advance,
Al

I picked one of these up off Amazon - Sport Matched Dead Pedal:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07T9834GR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Note: It's made for previous model years (plastic dead pedal) so you'll want to replace the double sided tape with Velcro:

Do the new model 3s really not come with a dead pedal, or did they forget to install that part in OP's vehicle?

My 2021 certainly doesn't. It's just carpet there, no dead pedal. My Costco WeatherTech universal floor mats cover that side most of the way though (still haven't trimmed them yet for the best fit though).

A quick google found it's been that way since late 2019.

I used this one and it is great. Carpet doesn't last long without one. Velcroed mine on and it looks factory and doesn't move.

they have been removed for at least a year now.

It’s the same minus the plastic, it’s still a raised area to rest your foot.

“A dead pedal is a flat plate located to the left of all other pedals in the footwell area of an automobile. Permanently fixed in place, deadpedals are often about the same size as an accelerator pedal - sometimes larger. A dead pedal may be a metal plate or rubber block, or it may be integrated into the contours of the floor.”

I know what a dead pedal is. I was stating that the plastic cover had been removed for over a year and if you buy the correct floor mats, it will cover the area where the dead pedal was thus negating the need for the little piece of plastic that tesla removed.
