    Hi All,

    Just took delivery a few days ago, and have been doing a lot of reading. One thing I keep seeing is references to a cubby inside the glove box that should hold the J1772 adapter. I've checked below the 17" display, and the glove box itself, I don't see anything that this adapter could fit into.
    Could somebody please take a picture of there's so I can make sure I'm not loosing my mind or making a very silly mistake?

    Thanks!!

    There's a slot at the rear left corner of the glove box that it fits nicely in.

    Nope, the two little recessed areas in the glove box are now gone in all the new dual motor cars. Our old P85 has them, our new P85D does not. Terrible decision on Tesla's part.

    IMG_0614.JPG Just to confirm then, my left corner should be looking like this (flat), what is that little odd circle on the left wall there? Haven't been turn up any details on that.

    Thanks!

    Recent VINs have lost the little nook in the back corner of the glove box that had been perfect for the J1772 adapter. Some component behind there must have been rerouted.

    I never knew there was a holder in the glove box. Always keep miy adapter with other adapters in the charging cable bag and keep it in the trunk.

    First the Frunk looses space, now the glove box... oh well, the price of progress

    Interesting. Seems like it is going to be hit or miss on who has the recess in box right now unless the trend moves more towards no one having it after say mid-May deliveries. It is either that or perhaps a particular option requires the space to be removed; e.g. cold weather or something...

    My 2013 60 had it. Never used it for the adapter. My 70D delivered on 5/9/15, does not.

    My 85D picked up end of April does not. Im Schedule to have them replace the glove box due to a flaw. Worn spot on the bottom. Will see if I get a cubby or not.

    Well, it's not cold weather -- I've got that. (I don't have premium audio, which I guess might signify). I took delivery in March.

    My P85D's glove box has the J1772 indentation. I believe it was built in Nov.

    My 04/15 85d does not have the spot and I wish it did.

    My 85D does not(premium audio + cold weather).

    I got a 60kWh loaner yesterday that has it. No premium audio, no cold weather but it has autopilot hardware. The car was brand new (less than 20miles on the odo). VIN was in the 76xxx range.

    My 85D built mid April, 2015, delivered May 6 (regular audio + cold weather) does not have the J1772 cubby in the glove box.

    Based on the posts so far, the only correlation is with date, with cars built before early 2015 having the cubby independent of dual motor, audio package, and cold weather package. No one has reported on whether a recent S85 (built April, 2015 or later) does or does not have the cubby.

    It sure sounds like it is a change affecting all models, although it may have been phased in a little earlier for dual motor builds. Unclear what the technical reason for the change might be since early P85D's still had it, so can't blame it on dual motor (unless it is to reduce noise from the front motor).

    Uh, there's a comment three up from yours stating an April 85D did not have the cubby...:confused:
