There are some whites screws with plastic nuts on the underside of all four wheelwells. All of mine were loose and I hand tightened all of them. Does anyone have the same experience? I am wondering if they are supposed to be loose? logic tells me no. Thoughts?

I discovered that too, and a couple were missing the "nuts". I'm not sure that they are truly screws as the nuts were on a little crooked and I could just push them flat.

I’ve got a few loose screws but, so far, the car doesn’t seem to have any (unless you count phantom braking syndrome).

🤪

I know this may just be about Model Ys but couldn’t resist.

I tightened mine too. BTW if, you see a few "missing" black body push pins that normal. Engineering put in more then they needed but during the ramp they realized a few saved here and there made a huge difference.
