TESLA S 2014-16 AWD FRONT WITHOUT LOWER FORK STRUT


LOWER FORK STRUT. In most cases, it is perfectly fine to reuse the lower fork strut from the old air suspension. These are cast aluminium, and can withstand a bit of the Scandinavian roadclimate wintertime. But you can meet problems when trying to loosen the bolt that attaches the fork to the strut. It can sit hard and has star grooves that wear easily. So you should know what you are doing.

ADAPTATION. This air strut fits both left- and right side. Tesla recommends to replace them in pairs (passanger and driver side at the samt time). This is of course not an absolute requirement, and it is possible to change on only one side. But be aware that in a few cases, you may get problems with height adjustment, as different types of air struts may give unclear signals to the ECU/Software.


PART NUMBER. Always check original spare part number or OEM reference before ordering. The Tesla Parts Catalog main number of this item is 1030608, followed by variants of 00C, 01A. It fits dual motor cars (DM, or AWD) produced between 2014 and March 2016 (pre-facelift), air suspension type Standard, Smart and Plus.  Regarding the plus variant, some customers have experienced the Vigor® air struts as a little softer. If for that reason you want to go for the originals from Tesla, you must make an assessment of yourself.


WARRANTY. There is a 2-year warranty on Vigor® air struts. But please note that this in principle only applies to installation at workshops authorized by Norwegian Public Road Administration, the NPRA (or similiar in other countries). In practice, however, the guarantee also applies if you install yourself. We assume here that you know what you're doing, and if you're not sure, rather seek out a workshop for assembly. Manufacturing defects give, regardless of what you go for, of course a full guarantee.


NOTE. Valves are critical components on all air struts. We do not recommend buying any type of 'aftermarket' ones, if you are unsure of the quality. Then you quickly have problems with height adjustment, that they get 'stuck' in a given position and the like. Our valves are German OEM quality. The residual pressure valve is manufactured by AIGO-TEC GmbH, while the air nipple is the original Voss 'quick-to-connect' system 203.
