    Within a DIY brake repair thread within TMC, I came across a reference to an actual shop manual source of information, from service.tesla.com

    I paid and got access to a bunch of Model S and X service manuals which I downloaded. Even though it mentions Model 3 I couldn't access them

    OK, to confirm, one can download the manuals onto their own hard drive?

    If yes, why the option for more than a $30 one hour fee?

    If no, then is it like http://www.alldata.com/ except about a thousand times more expensive ;)?

    Some manuals are PDF the others are embedded HTML which you might have to print to PDF or save to your hard drive.

    If you're looking for something specific I might have it archived. $30 gives you an hour to download whatever you want. I was able to grab quite a bit of interesting stuff

    This is all awesome to know, thanks.

    Once my Model 3 is ordered, I'll spend the $US 30 and, at the very least, download all the recommended maintenance items. Cheers.

    Gotta love the internet. This really helps confirm that I may look at some DIY maintenance.

    I was able to obtain a copy of the PDF files for the Service Manual for my Leaf. It's been incredibly useful for doing work on the car. Great instructions for taking every part of the car apart.

    If the same sort of information exists for the 3, I'll probably go the DIY route again with that car. I do worry that it'll be harder to find parts for a Tesla than for a Nissan.

    We are on the cutting edge so to speak. Things will loosen up over the next 36 months.
