Hi and welcome to this series where I blog one post for every issue I have had and how it was resolved

This time it is the screw that holds the rear camera in place. It is full of rust. Tesla explains that the whole car is made of aluminium so it should not rust, but the screws are subject to corosion. They also claim that this is normal and not covered by warranty.

I find  that hard to believe, use proper screws. Seriously. And why is only on screw rusting? This would not happen on a BMW or am I wrong? Please comment below if you think so.

Tesla has not yet fixed this, it has been on their list to fix twice and they forget it each time. Now they promised to fix it when a service technician comes to my house.
