Model Y Body-In-White May Shed Light On Tesla Glass Incidents
Another video, about the door module, may help explain them a little more.
The first time I reported an issue with glasses on Tesla vehicles was on January 6. Sergio Rodriguez’s Model X had a waterfall in his dashboard. We later learned from Chad Hrencecin, from “The Electrified Garage,” and also from George Catalin Marinescu, from “Doctor Tesla,” that this was a common issue. New glass issues emerged in March. Surprisingly, the Tesla Model Y teardown shed some light on the causes of these problems.
Two recent videos come to the rescue about this subject. The first one, embedded above, had the goal of showing a naked body. Don’t be naughty: it was the Model Y’s body-in-white, or BIW, for short.
Munro showed the structures of the body, such as the shot guns, and talked about measures Tesla takes to make the Model Y a silent car, such as filling some of them with foam. The engineer also spoke about the lack of paint on the frunk bay, something we have already mentioned Toyota also does with the Etios, a cheap car sold in Brazil and India.

Perhaps these windows are shattering due to heat shocks, as some readers suggested. Anyway, what if they are related to the alignment of the doors? Or to the design of these modules? Or even to compensation springs that are too strong? We’ll probably have to wait a little more to clarify this. If you have any information or related problem to report, get in touch with us.
