    1. I have been driving my new Model S 100D for one month and have a clicking noise coming from both rear wheels/ suspension. The newest thread was 2015. I’m wondering if there is a definite fix or it’s just something to live with?

    When I was hearing a clicking noise in my S, the motor was failing. It might be a harmless clicking, but you should have it checked out.

    This is a long shot, but if the noise is really from the wheels it is possible to get gravel of the right size stuck in the tread grooves. You have new tires with deep grooves so it can happen if you have driven on a gravel road. Usually the gravel will come out by the time you get to even a moderate speed though.
