Tesla roof rack installed by Tesla cracked glass

Not sure how people are not having issues with Tesla model 3 roof racks? Upon reading some threads of broken glass I figured it would be safe to have Tesla service install their roof rack on my 2020 stealth 3. The tech didn’t use a torque wrench and hand tightened which I was worried about and for good reason. One day later I noticed this crack.
So it doesn’t matter if Tesla or anyone else is installing just use a torque wrench for gods sake!
I just reached out to Tesla service via app and will let you know how it goes.
Not the introductory post I would have wanted to start with but figured giving heads up to more people is needed.

My appointment is set for March so will see how the service goes.
Yes, regarding the sea suckers I read a few threads on broken glasses on model 3’s as well.
I felt like it was safer to go with a Tesla product and you know how that played out!
Noticed this post from 2019 a fellow member. It is interesting that it might be a defect if the crack is from inside which mine is so will let you know March 3rd!
