I noticed when my 2018 Model X is in the sun (Black Color) the falcon door stops prematurely as if there is an obstruction. It seems to be related to the door panel that is heated by the sun. It thinks there is an obstacle and stops opening.

I also noticed in a Rich Rebuiulds video the sensor sometimes comes loose and ends up pointing upward slightly causing general reliability issues.
