Wow, they finally did it. Sorry if this is a repost, color me completely shocked...
Finally! What is your production build date? Do you know what the bulletin # is for this steering recall?
My build date is 3/13 and I actually do not know the bulletin
Have them check the turn signal module while they at it.
I assume the airbag has been done... If not, make sure they don't damage the dash trim around the MCU...
date in this year...2020
This should be the latest bulletin:
This is regarding to connection between the assist motor and rack in the under hood area, nothing should occur in the cabin or to the steering wheel due to this issue.
So it affects any Model S/D built before October 2016? My S is a June 2016 build.
My 2016 was done about a year ago in my garage.
No it’s 3/2013
There is a hidden warranty, recall, what ever you want to call it, for the turn signal module, on early model S. It is separate from the well known NTSB recall for aluminum bolts on the steering unit.
if you are going to get the car worked on, might as well get everything you can fixed that is important...
This bold corrosion for the steering rack housing has been going on for some time. At first it was only for those vehicle subject to road salt or ocean salt, which hastened the corrosion. They have been replacing them for years. Believe not it has advanced to a more overall recall, as time has causes some corrosion, even in non salted road conditions.
It is a pretty simple fix, as they replace the bolts subject to corrosion with non corroding bolts.
Yeah I remember following the thread. I'm just surprised they did a recall on it, and more surprised they reached out to me. I have been off Tesla's radar for maybe 4 years now
Might even be something a remote Ranger can do.
Then can, but there is risk. If a bolt brakes, they have to replace the entire rack which requires a lift. So in field replacements add the risk of needing a tow along with unknown total replacement time.
You can pull the Frunk tub yourself, and see if the bolts are broken. if not the ranger can do it, he did mine.
Also note if the frunk attach clips have fallen off and need replaceing. These special 3M adhesive mounting clips/Velcro like atachements need a clean surface and must be pressed into place for 60 seconds, something I do not think the factory did.
