I left my car today for PPF & tint, and there was another Model 3 having some kind of fix in the left rear window...

And I was able to catch this "p0rn" picture of the door private parts :)

Continuing your cute analogy, your picture is like trying to watch an adult cable channel that was scrambled where every now and then you THINK you may see an interesting part but the view is so fuzzy, you’re never sure!

When taking a spy shot in the future, try to use a HD camera with multiple lighting sources or sunlight and get professional post processing. I can’t make out if the black area is a reinforcement or just sound deadening and I see wires leading to something I assume is the window actuator but I can’t tell for sure. If the black area isn’t structural, I’m surprised there are no cross bars unless they’re covered.

Yeah, that sounds reasonable :D

Shouldn't it be spelled "pr0n"? :D
Hopefully just using the number 0 instead of the letter o is enough to avoid weird search hits to this forum :confused:

Realizing that I understood this reference (and have had that experience) made me feel old. Thanks :(

I will say it is nice that the window motor is mounted outside and accessible so it can easily be replaced. I've had to replace them on other cars and they are buried deep inside the door and several hours of work to get to.
I was expecting to see some kind of mechanical door release though, as is hidden in the Model X rear doors.

Is this the back door? If so then maybe a emergency release could be attached and used for when power is lost. I think Tesla made a big mistake not putting a mechanical release in back door. It is only a matter of time before a tragic accident will happen and someone is trapped in back seat and can not get out fast enough.

Where was this? I'm curious cause my tint guy had malfunction with my back door during tinted that required him to buy a new part and install. My SC said they never heard of the issue. My car is at SC now for several issues and to check the door install. I'd love to contact the shop where this occurred and get more details on what happened.
