    The owners manual has only VERY basic repair information. It is nothing like a shop manual. The shop manual for my Avalanche is 3 books each one over 1100 pages.

    So hopefully some day they will release the manual or in this case the DVD repair manual.

    i too would both appreciate and eventually expect to be able to purchase comprehensive service and parts manuals for the roadster.

    in my experience restoring cars, the parts manual is even more important than the service manual.

    I just thought of something.

    Maybe the reason Tesla hasn't put out a manual or service book for the Roadster is because they CAN'T. Don't forget, Lotus supplied the inital gliders. Maybe somewhere in the agreements was a clause that forbids that kind of publication by Tesla. Maybe we need to go after Lotus first, THEN Tesla.

    Doesn't sound plausible. What motivation would Lotus have? Especially since only 6% of the parts are shared.

    I'm not sure Brian, I'm still trying to figure it out.

    It could be a "tit for tat" kind of thing: "You can put out a service manual IF you include all the electronics as well".

    What WOULD be plausible? A don't compete clause with poor wording?

    My apologizes if this is not the correct avenue:

    We too am looking for Tesla manuals because we want to service them at our store here in West Sacramento, CA.

    We have just opened a very small shop. Humble beginnings but are well aware that electric cars are the future and don't want to be left behind.

    We have just bought a Techstream 2.0 factory scan tool for Toyota and Lexus and noticed that on the desktop there is an icon for Tesla. I don't supposed that this tool will let me tap into these cars computer systems via the obdII port.

    Again, please forgive us as we are not sure where to get questions answered.

    Thank you in advance for any help,
    Jim and Eve George

    Tesla DO publish full manuals, but only for dealers and repairers.
    They are also ALL on Line (but only in Massachusetts)

    I too would love to see/own these - simply to understand more and even diagnose better before a trip to tesla service centre.

    We own a Lotus Elise 111s alongside our P85D and have a shop manual for that, obtained from Lotus cars without much trouble.

    Does that help folks?

    Details on request.
