Tesla has released new "Do It Yourself" maintenance procedures to help owners work with their own cars.
In recent years, Tesla has said it is working on opening up its service tools and helping owners repair their own cars, but we haven't seen much evidence of it – even if things have come in the right direction.
Last year, Tesla released the subdirectory for model 3, model S, model X and roadster to the public.
Now, Tesla also releases a series of new instructions for the "do it yourself" procedures for Model 3 Cars.
Car manufacturer says owners can avoid having to go to service centers:
"Tesla owners who want to perform basic procedures or maintenance on the vehicle can do so without having to schedule a service agreement. Just do a procedure if you feel comfortable doing it, and always follow all instructions provided. "
Most procedures consist of simply maintenance or troubleshooting:
- Restarting the Touch Screen
- Pairing a Bluetooth Phone
- Wi-Fi Connection
- Programming HomeLink ®
- Adding and Removing Keys
- Replacing the Key Fob Battery
- Installing the Telephone Charging Cable
- Installing the faceplate bracket
- Replacing the cable filter
- Checking and adjusting tire pressure
- Addition to window water powder
- Replacing wiper blade
- Manual release charging cable
- Calibrate windows
- Removing and installing aerode covers
- Removing and installing Lug Nut Covers
Some things, such as replacing cabinet filters, are a little more intricate and would generally have been handled by the service center.
Tesla step-by-step released track instructions, which include removing some panels and screws, as well as a poison:
Tesla has placed great emphasis on air quality in its cars. One of Tesla's goals is to improve the overall quality by accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles, but Tesla owners who do their part should also have good air quality in their own cars.
With Model X, Tesla put a lot of effort into developing a more powerful air filtration system not only to help reduce local air pollution by electric vehicles, but also to reduce the direct effect of air pollution on the occupants of their vehicles.
Muscle Credit Google founder Larry Page to hit him on the idea and with model X in 2015, Tesla introduced a brand new HEPA air filter system.
The car manufacturer claims that it is about 10 times larger than a conventional car filter (pictured above) and it is "100 times more efficient than premium automotive filters" as it removes "at least 99.97% of fine particles and gaseous pollutants as well. bacteria, viruses, pollen and mold spores. "
Tesla later introd Uced the same filter for Model S, but CEO Elon Musk says that there was not enough space in model 3 to have the same filter.
Nevertheless, Group 3 Corporate Responsibility is equipped with the best air filtration system that fits and can have similar capabilities if you filter the air several times.
"Set the airflow to recirculation mode and manually raise the blowing speed to 5 in model 3 for best air quality. Air filters are less than S / X, so clear air is achieved by circulating through the filter several times."
] If owners decide on it, the air filter will carry faster, but now they can change themselves with the new instructions issued by Tesla.
I think they still have a long way to go, but Tesla obviously goes in the right direction to help owners take care of their own cars.
The biggest problem is still likely access to parts.
Tesla must make it easier for the owners to purchase parts that they need and reduce lead time.
It's something that Tesla claims to have been working for a long time, but we haven't seen much progress.
