Rear Drive Noise

Rear Drive Noise

I've got the milling noise in my rear drive unit. Anyone know when they transitioned to the ceramic bearings(my car is a Dec 2016 P100D)? Headed to the service center for a drive swap next week.

That seems...late.
Nothing in front of me, but my DU was replaced at 28K, so likely about 2 years in, which would have been end of 2014, or early 2015. I hope it goes well.

Custer with the new DU? :-)

I agree with NKYTA - I thought it was handled back in 2014 or so. Sounds like something else has gone wrong, but Tesla will handle it.

My mid 2015 p90d rear DU had milling noise and was replaced. Silent since
