Tesla Model S (2012-2024) Service Manual / High Voltage System / HV Harness - Front Drive Unit to HVJB

Warning: Only technicians who have been trained in High Voltage Awareness are permitted to perform this procedure. Proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and insulating HV gloves with a minimum rating of class 00 (500V) must be worn any time a high voltage cable is handled. Refer to Tech Note TN-15-92-003, "High Voltage Awareness Care Points" for additional safety information.

Special tools required for this procedure:

Supplier Part Number Description

Tesla 10794924-00-A Nylon Fish Tape, 25 ft.
Removal
  1. Perform the vehicle electrical isolation procedure (refer to procedure).
  2. Remove the high voltage junction box (HVJB) cover (refer to procedure).
Warning: Use a multimeter to check voltages across the HV cables and to ground before continuing this procedure.
  1. Remove the front LH wheel arch liner (refer to procedure).
  2. Remove the bolt that secures the HV harness to the bracket in the front left wheel arch (torque 4 Nm). Release the HV harness from the bracket.

  4. Release any push clips that secure the HV harness to studs on the bulkhead.
  5. Install protective caps over both HV cables to protect the terminals and seals.
  6. Secure the HV cables to the nylon fish tape tool using string or fishing line.

    Note: The nylon fish tape tool is used to pull and route the new harness through the channel during installation.

    Note: Secure both HV cables together and slightly staggered to reduce the likelihood of one of them getting caught in the channel.

    Note: The following image shows the HV cables without the protective caps installed.

  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. Release the front of the LH C-pillar lower trim panel near the base of the B-pillar.

    Caution: Take care not to damage component(s).

  10. Gently pull the HV harness towards the rear of the vehicle and through the channel. Caution: Ensure that the string or fishing line is not accidently released from the HV cables while pulling the nylon fish tape tool through the channel.
  11. Once the HV harness is all the way through the channel, release the string or fishing line, but do not pull the nylon fish tape tool back through the channel or remove it from the vehicle.
  12. Disconnect the 12V connector from the HVIL switch.

  15. Remove the nuts that secure the B+ and B- HV cables to the HVJB (torque 9 Nm).

    Note: It is not necessary to replace the fastener(s) after it is removed. The threaded area has a reusable dry sealant, which looks similar to adhesive patch material.

  16. Pull the front of the harness through the grommet between the seat base and 2nd row cabin.
  17. Remove the HV harness and fuse assembly from the vehicle.
Installation

Installation procedure is the reverse of removal, except for the following:

Caution: Replace all Patchbolt(s).

  • Install protective caps over both HV cables to protect the terminals and seals when pulling the harness through the channel.
  • Secure the new HV harness to the nylon fish tape tool using string or fishing line and, from the front LH wheel arch, gently pull the front of the nylon fish tape tool through the channel towards the front of the vehicle and retrieve the HV harness.
  • Apply P-80 emulsion to the cable grommet at the rear entrance to the channel and ensure that grommet is fully seated.
  • Apply P-80 emulsion to the connector seals on the HV cables before securing the HV cables to the drive unit.

    Caution: Do not apply P-80 emulsion to the HV terminals.
