Does anybody have a squeaky brake pedal? If so is there anyway to get rid of it? thanks
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.
This fixed it for me. Had the issue in both out model S's and got same fix.
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.
The pivot point appeared to me to be up behind a plastic panel. I tried squirting lube up in there, but didn't hit anything. Did you remove the panel for access? If so, how much trouble was it to reinstall?
Thanks for the hints on this...
