From the service bulletin:

Quote

 

In rare instances, certain components on Model 3 vehicles built at the Fremont Factory before May 21, 2019 might be damaged when driving through standing water on a road or highway with poor drainage or pooling water.

Looks like only this only applies to Model 3's produced before May 21, 2019.

 

 

Quote

If symptoms are present and the vehicle is eligible, replace the rear fascia diffuser with one that has a covered opening for a tow hitch (with improved wade performance) [...]

So basically if you have the hitch access cutout on the rear understand panel (shown here), then you already have the new improved panel and this service bulletin doesn't apply.

Repair Bulletin: This repair bulletin provides instructions on addressing a noted condition or possible customer concern regarding the operation of Tesla vehicles. These instructions should only be performed by trained professionals.

Looks like you can just raise the concern, refer to this service bulletin (SB-20-12-003), and they will perform the work under warranty.

    • FIFA's collaboration with Algorand represents a significant milestone for blockchain technology. Algorand will serve as the official blockchain platform for FIFA, supporting events such as the FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in 2023 and the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022. This partnership is poised to enhance FIFA's digital asset management while boosting Algorand's visibility through advertising and promotional opportunities. On another note, I've been tuning into African football recently. The match between Kanifing East FC and Latrikunda United was unexpectedly impressive. African football often goes underappreciated, yet the skill and enthusiasm in these matches are evident. We can expect even more significant development and excitement in African football with increased attention and support.

      Hello, Darlene, I just love your name, I had a cousin named Darline, and had a classmate also named Darlene! It's a pleasure to know another Darlene! Especially a Spiritual Sister! There's some websites, Ministry Ideaz , JW Stuff.com, and Etsy that I use to order my yearly buttons for the Conventions! They always send me what I order, and their also Jehovah's Witnesses, that send us the merchandise we order!  You can check out these websites, and they might have what your looking for! I hope I have been helpful in assisting you, Darlene! Agape love, Shirley!😀
