Pillar Camera

From time to time, I have an error code indicating my camera (right or left pillar) is not working. I would not be able to use the auto cruise control. Happens when it is cold outside or when the humidity is relatively high. I made an appointment next week with tesla center (90 miles away.)

I got my Model Y PUP on November '20.

I've read other owners having similar issues with Tesla trying to fix some of them and ignoring others. Should I keep the appointment? And if it takes a more than a day, do they have loaner cars?

First time poster. Any help would be appreciated .

For me, this has occurred dozens of times on the left side. The SC claims it is normal and essentially unfixable, but it immobolizes numerous safety features whenever it happens.
For me, it has been left-sided condensation almost every time. My SC (Smithtown, NY) claims this is inherent in the pillar's design, and that replacement will not solve the problem.
