Tesla Model S: Bushing Installation, Rear Motor Mount

  1. Use brake cleaner to clean the threaded rod and the nut bearing assemblies.
  2. Use 3M Spray Lube 08878 or equivalent to lubricate the threaded rod and the nut bearing assemblies.
  3. Slide the bushing into the right side of the rear motor mount so that the longer cavities are horizontal on the bushing.

    Tip: Draw a reference line on the bushing prior to installation to aid with orientation.

  4. Thread 1 nut bearing assembly onto 1 end of the threaded rod.

  7. Slide the rear bushing cup onto the other end of the threaded rod.
  8. Thread the second nut bearing assembly onto the other end of the threaded rod until it lightly touches the driver.
  9. Adjust the assembly until the rear bushing cup is seated flush against the rear motor mount.
  10. Place a 1 in (24 mm) ratchet wrench onto each nut bearing assembly.
  11. Alternate rotating the ratchet wrenches to push the driver towards the rear bushing cup until the bushing is aligned with the machined face of the motor mount (the bushing is slightly visible from the right side of the front motor mount).

    Caution: If the effort required to rotate the ratchet wrenches is excessive, the tool is misaligned and continued ratcheting could cause damage. Loosen the nut bearing assemblies on the threaded rod, add lubrication to the threaded rod, realign the parts, and begin again.
