I own Tesla 2013 Model S and is out of warranty period. Touch screen on MCU is showing up bubbles on the sides and top edge of the screen which is increased from what I noticed last November.
Tesla service center looked at the pictures I sent and told me to have entire MCU replaced for this and it is costly. I have no issues with controls or MCU so far. Why do I need to replace whole thing?
Last November, I was told $1000 by same service center and now $2700. It doesn't make sense. I read various comments in forum and noticed price varies a lot for the similar problem.
What should be cost for fixing? Any suggestions for replacing the screen portion or fixing the gel leaking problem from the screen?
Is the screen available to buy and can it be replaced by consumers. I assume it is few screws and power plugs on board.
Any suggestions will be really helpful. I am afraid that MCU may stop responding at some point with more bubbles in it.
Thank you very much,
