On the rear air vents, does one side push way more air than the other?

    I can't recall off the top of my head which side is which, but on my X, one side pushes air at a much higher volume than the other. Is that normal?

    that's a manufacturing defect.
    I caught it at delivery and added it to my due bill.
    The fix was to correct some improper duct connection or some such, so talk to your SC about it, I guess.

    I noticed this too and the SC told me the blower is on the right side and will force more air on the right. He said it's normal, but will double check all connections to be sure.

    I think 70% of the air goes to the 3rd row and very minimal goes to the 2nd row. I can't fully close 3rd row vents

    Do you guys have a ton of air on the rearmost rightmost side spot? It makes a lot of noise when compared to everything else when the fan is set to max.

    My left side middle row air vent has almost no airflow at max fan setting.

    How can this happen in a 100K vehicle? I’m in Florida and will raise eternal hell if the AC doesn’t work well.

    99% of people don't have problems, otherwise Tesla wouldn't sell a model X anywhere except Canada.

    This is a true statement although how many Model X's exist ? I can't remember but I thought I saw the number somewhere. Sometimes I forget 3 and 4 responses on a forum don't constitute an issue so to say.

    Our six seater has the same issue. Left side middle row has poor flow and obvious temperature difference (warmer air coming out). I spoke to SC literally 1 year ago, was told "it needs a part but it's backordered." It's not a huge issue but I've reminded the SC several times since and I get the same BS response. These things can be fixed but you have to make a row about it. Annoying.

    Can you follow up on here please? We just hit Warmer weather here a month ago and noticed this same issue.
    Very loud and very much stronger right side vs left
