Model Y Front Impact Structure

Episode 7 – Front Impact Structure, Snap-Fit Lamp & Rotor Serviceability

Welcome back to episode seven of Munro’s Tesla Model Y Performance teardown, where Munro & Associates CEO Sandy Munro takes a look at the front wheel envelope and shares an overview of the:

  • Front impact structure: looking under the wheel well at the front rail structure, which compared to the Model 3 looks a lot different and much stronger;
  • Snap-fit lamp: the side marker, which is also a camera, is similar to the Model 3 with a molded snap-fit feature that snaps directly into the fender sheet metal; and
  • Rotor serviceability: changes, such as having an external retention screw for the brakes, make servicing the rotor much easier.

For the full details of each of these areas of the Tesla Model Y, view the full video here.
