Good morning. My Model X has a leaky rear tire. To those who know, May I lift that corner only (at the lift point), or does the whole rear need to be lifted, as to limit distortion?
Thank you

No problem with lifting a single corner. Block the tire at the opposite corner so it doesn't roll.

I routinely jack the entire side from the rear jackpoint in order to do a rotation.

No experience with S/X, but if I recall and you have air suspension, don't you have some sort of air setting in the menu for jacking too? You may be aware, but since you are inquiring I thought I'd note it.

Yeah, I believe there's a Jack Mode that needs to be turned on in the vehicle controls so that it doesn't try to level the other 3 corners. It's probably under the Safety & Security sub-menu.
