Hey its me - the guy who cracked his screen by tapping it accidentally with my phone I was moving my arm to place my phone in the charging cradle (in the dark) and tapped the bottom edge of my screen with the phone (since the display ends ~1" past the end of the screen and i couldn't see it) which cracked the screen and made it FREAK out.
Just heard from Tesla that a replacement screen is around $1300 in case you were wondering.
On a similar side note... Call me crazy but I've always had great luck using Windex on my iphones and ipads. It's just a piece of glass after all. Is this screen any different? How is everyone cleaning it? Is there a thread for that?
The glass and digitizer bits inside the glass won't be harmed by ammonia based windex -- but the electrical connections near the edge can...chemicals have a way of getting past the glue sealing the glass/glass layers to the frame and once inside can wreak havoc. Really don't recommend windex on electronics.
It’s a small Amber sheet with 3 clear amber strips to peel off. Personally I would use 3 pieces of painters tape front to back and another long piece of painters tape across the entire top to form the hinge. You literally can’t use to much tape. The more secure the top hinge the easier the install. It allows you to lift up from the bottom and get the screen perfectly clean without worrying about it. Then peel off the backing, clean the screen again and lower it into place.
Was just reading that some people didn't remove the film on the screen that came from the factory. My existing plastic cover had a tab sticking up at the top right for easy removal. I literally removed it in the Tesla garage before I pulled out to ensure it wasn't hiding anything underneath. It's not possible there's even another layer of plastic I can't see is it?
