Can someone tell me what is this item for? Came in the frunk with my tow hitch in the lunch box.
Tow hook. It screws into the frame and would be the location a winch would attach to in order to drag your car on to a flat bed or out of a ditch etc. Hopefully you'll never have the need for one.
It's a tow hook.
Thanks guys! appreciate it
Where does it attach?
Its not a sunshade
Why isn't there a storage bag or location to put it, so it isn't a heavy projectile in case of an accident. Picked up the car, and they found it loose in the truck, floating around without any purpose....
I believe there is a slot with the Mobile Charger (UMC) bag where it is supposed to be stored.
Bjorn (Youtube fame) has a video about it. With the pre-refresh Model S, you pop off the nose cone and there's some place that it is suppose to attach. Don't know about refreshed Ss or Xs
The answer to the question where does this "eye" attach to the refresh or X has remained curiously elusive.
Oh...I thought it was a way of monitoring the cars temperature.... : )
It's not that elusive. One just needs to read the owner's manual:
Thank you for the manual reference. The manual I downloaded (7-16) after I purchased my refresh did not have this information. The solution is not elusive anymore, thanks!
Whenever you get ICE'D at a charger you can use this to fix the situation
Ah. That explains it. The screenshot above is from the 10/20/16 Owner's Manual. Let me know if you need a copy.
Morrison, I have just spent the last five or seven minutes trying to locate the updated owners manual on the Tesla website to no avail. So I may take you up on your offer unless you can point me to where it exists on the website so I can download it myself. Thanks again.
You can find it in the documents at the bottom of your My Tesla page. Here's the link that I have for the owner's manual: https://www.tesla.com/sites/default/files/model_s_owners_manual_north_america_en_us.pdf
Got it. I was right there on myTesla Documents but did not scroll down one more page to see it. Thanks
Aaannnddd, it's on page 182 in the copy of the manual I have dated 11/7/2016.
Just double click on the section in the Contents titled "Instructions for Transporters".
