    I am trying to install a Thule roof rack on my 3 week old model S. One of the four bolts that screws into the receiving nut (part of the roof) will only go in half way then gets tight (like it's stripped). I don't want to force it as I assume something will break. The other 3 were tightish, but went in fine. Anyone else have this happen? Any suggestions other than service appointment?

    Spray some WD40 and give it another try. Is a good idea to use some WD 40 to prevenet them from seizing anyways. If still doesn't work, have tesla install it. If they break it, they fix it.
