Right rear window / door lock noise when engaging Park


Jan 24, 2017
Los Angeles, CA
Everytime I put my Tesla S in "park", I can hear a low thud at the right rear door, similar to when the window closes and doors lock. I think this has been occurring regularly throughout many updates, starting somewhere near the time when the app alerts you if the windows are open, and allowed venting the windows from the app. I happens every time, the noise is the same, and it is always only the right rear. I've checked the window, which is closed each time too.

Does anyone else have this issue ?? There are no other symptoms, and aside from the annoyance of my ruminating what is causing it to occur, and what the problem will eventually turn out to be, no other window / door issues that I can find.

I did have frequent "rear passenger window not closed" alerts early on (before I realized the related noise when putting it in "park"), but those are no longer occurring either.

Any ideas / comments ? TIA
