Special thanks to Gordon at eFIXX for sending this faulty Tesla model X headlight for us to explore.
This whole light was condemned and replaced because it seemed to be causing network issues. In reality it was only the control module that seems to have an issue. It comes off with four screws and two connectors. There are three connections to the light – power and a single data line.
I strongly recommend against trying to open these lights, as they are glued shut with a tough adhesive, and after wasting a lot of time with an angry Dremel it took a Ryobi cordless angle grinder with a cutting disk to get the very chewy polycarbonate lens off the front.
I specifically avoid using intrusive mid-run video adverts.
