    You need to be more specific: AP or non-AP? Model S or X? Prod date?

    I ask as our March '13 Production MS has a "clack" sound from the brake pedal linkage(s) that's grossly inappropriate for a six-figure car, but so did our mid-year '13 as well. Let's call it a "design defect."

    Our latest, a July '15 70D has the new Bosch brake system and, likely, a different linkage--no "clack" sound.

    If anyone has a solution, do please advise.

    Thanks!

    Our AP car, 80xxx VIN that was built in March had a squeaky brake pedal. Tesla changed the brake fluid and the squeak went away. Not sure if they did something else.

    After getting under the dash and looking there is a pivot point from the pedal to the braking system. Hit the pivot point with some teflon spray and the squeak was gone.
