    You guys should CNC a part that also anchors the brass fitting to the battery pack itself using the existing hardware.( 2 fasteners that hold the nipple on from the factory). That would protect it more from vibrations and future road debris encounters.

    I've got an almost identical problem. What size nipple? What size pipe tap? What kind of thread sealant? Did you consider a bonding solution? I'd have a concern over CTE (coefficient thermal expansion) mismatch between the brass nipple and the thermoplastic (assuming it's thermoplastic). Over many cycles the nipple will expand and contract in diameter. Maybe the thermoplastic is compliant enough to accommodate that? I guess worst case is the coolant starts leaking, which should be noticeable, and you start a fix again. Also brass reactivity with aluminum in the coolant system should be considered.

    A clever repair! As a metal fabricator, I'd suggest taking a piece of 16 gauge steel (or stainless) and make a guard that goes behind the plastic belly pan. I'd bend it to a 45 degree angle and mount it in front of the hose/connectors and bolt it to the cross member. I could make some, if anyone is interested. I live in NJ, btw. The fact that Tesla doesn't do this from the factory, tells me they do not know cars, they only know Teslas.

    And another thing to. When these battery pack do eventually go out, they are so expensive to replace it mechanically totals out the car in some cases. And that’s for a remanufactured pack that they only replace the dead cells in the pack and leave the damaged but functional ones. I had a feeling that was going to be a thing as these plug ins get older.

    I don’t want to stir the pot of Tesla fan boys/girls when I say I’m not a huge fan of Tesla’s anymore. I used to think they were super cool back when they first came out with the model S and such by I’ve personally seen tons of quality issues with these cars. Like stuff they should have figured out by now, like how to secure the glass roof on the new model Y for example. It amazes me how low they’ve stooped from their promises they made back then. Honestly, they have insane performance figures and they have space age technology but they just are riddled with so many issues that I wouldn’t want to have on my car personally. I don’t flat out hate Tesla but I don’t like them as much as I did before.

If your going to launch a new brand and kick it into the stratosphere you need to know and understand the so called little guy! Elon needs to take ten random tesla owners on modest incomes and one at a time listen to everything they have to say about there ownership and buying experience.. Then he needs to set up a big red heart shaped button initiative on his website.. A place on the website that get's hit if owners feel like they are not being heard or are being pressed into impossible situations.. This strategy may seem naive, brave or stupid, but it would help to build and establish trust, maintain good relationships, boosting customer confidence!

    I don't really care what you post as in general this type of content is outside of my scope of interests and I only come across your channel by chance. That being said I think it's the third time in here and it was always because of Tesla. So yeah, there are people who will watch only your Tesla videos, but you are the content creator and you have to decide what is the best content to produce. As for the video, we are just on the verge of electric revolution, it's normal not everything is in place yet. With time there will be more mechanics able to fix those minor problems with the cars without needing the service center costly repairs. Tesla will probably also have more spare parts on their hands to service those cars and once the pressure of this crazy expansion relieves a bit, they might start doing those more detailed jobs. We are still at the start of the road, not everything is perfect, but it's natural, it's only the beginning.

    That is an absolutely horrible design. Something so critical to such an expensive part of a car should have a lot more protection from road debris from what looks like a plastic shield. Not only that, the coolant lines in there should be metal, not plastic. They should be able to be hit with a hammer without breaking. It is absolutely unacceptable to put a brittle plastic coolant nipple in a place where something on the road can hit it. One more reason of many why you couldn't give me a Tesla.
