Tesla Model S (2012-2024) Service Manual / Roof / Sliding Glass - Panoramic Roof Assembly (Remove and Replace)

Removal

Note: Before beginning this procedure, prepare a covered surface or workbench to support the moving glass after it is removed from the vehicle.

  1. Fully open the panoramic moving glass.
  2. Remove and discard the mounting screws (x4) that secure the moving glass to the link assemblies (torque 5 Nm). Caution: The mounting screws are one time use. Ensure that new screws are used during reinstallation.
  3. Lift the moving glass panel upwards to remove it.
Installation

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

  1. Install new mounting screws. Do not reuse the mounting screws.
  2. After installation, calibrate the panoramic roof (refer to procedure).
  3. Use a flashlight to look inside the hole in the front car cross seal. Inspect for an e-coated metal bracket that has black felt tape attached to the rear edge:

    Caution: When bending the latching tab, use a sheet metal bending tool, or similar tool, with wide clamps that are wrapped in flocked or felt tape to avoid damaging the painted surface of the tab.

    1 Clamps covered in felt tape
    Caution: Take care not to crack the glass when adjusting the tab.

    • If a bracket is present, bend the latching tab on the moving glass frame so that it has a slight downward angle. This allows the latching tab to fit under the bracket when the moving glass is closed.

      Note: For more information on installing a bracket to prevent wind noise from the panoramic roof, refer to:
