The TMC members said rude things about the owner (and about me) and he was told to go forth and multiply.

Wow, just picked my car back up, all work completed in one day. All work was done under warranty. They weren't sure why the part failed. The service center was great and got everything was done very quickly. Faith in Tesla restored. Here is what was fixed:
Corrections: Steering Rack and Lower Column General Diagnosis
Checked and found the drivers side fore lower control arm to be separating from the lower ball joint. Recommend replacement of the fore and aft drivers side lower control arms, outer knuckle, wheel and passenger side fore lower control arm.
SO... he's all fixed up.
Nothing to see here....move along peoples!
UNTIL THE NEXT TIME IT HAPPENS.
Hello...NHTSA?.... Keef here, I'd like to report another case of WHOMPY WHEELS.
