    I just notice after bringing my model 3 sr+ car into service and getting a model 3 loaner that my steering wheel doesn't travel as far as it used to. For reference i mesured the travel distance from the corner of the dash to as far as the steering would travel, got 3 different measurement, from 3 different model 3.

    My model 3 steering at furthest point from the dash is 9inch 1/4
    The loaner 10inch 3/4.
    My friend's model 3 11inch.

    So i am wondering how far you guys's steering wheel travels at furthest point.

    I ask my SA, and told me a story about

    I ask my SA, and he told me a story about some might have different part numbers based on their VIN but when i reference to Tesla parts site, it just shows one part number for the steering column, no vin required.

    I booked a appointment through the app, but i would really like to have more reference before then.

    i can upload a photo of where i took the measurement if needed..

    Thanks

    Have you tried changing the steering weight and see if that affects anything?
