    The instructions on installing the the USB chargers weren't clear to me, and it wasn't until I saw an S install at the dealership that I realized I'd missed a step. Attached is a pic showing a part in my hand that slides off to the left (toward the driver). This part must be removed to install the USB cables correctly. The install was super easy, but getting the courage to figure out how this piece came off was gut-wrenching. I hope this spares others from the same anxiety. :)

      Thanks for sharing. I agree the install guide posted online is not entirely clear.

      This is why instructional videos are 100x more helpful, and hopefully Tesla will eventually have them available for every little topic.
      If not, there are plenty of fans that will be posting videos to youtube as well with neat little tricks like this.

        And see that’s what makes Tesla great. Someone will take the time to make the videos for them and post to YouTube just like how they spend $0 on marketing.

        Though I agree wholeheartedly. Short quick videos are the way to go for learning something.
