Moderator note (bmah/efusco): 3 related threads now merged Hey guys my first post here , be gentle bought my first Tesla Model S 2017 and opened the roof only to realise the brackets on the roof are cracked!!!! is this something im missing or a common occurrence on the model S :'( I am so upset I've only had the car a week, is there a fix or is this something else im missing, how do I fix it ? im also out of my warranty as I bought the car as a used vehicle from the second owner Moderator note #2 (efusco): Most key details are farther down thread. This vehicle was purchased used, apparently salvage title and thus Tesla will not offer to repair. That information will help out the rest of the discussion into perspective. Also, the OP put duct tape across the broken roof to keep water from leaking in, thus the extensive tape residue.
