Steering rack play. Replace whole or part of?
We have some play in our out of warranty model 3. According to Tesla, the whole 2000$+ rack has to be replaced.
But according to a Tesla recognized body shop, the issue is with a small plastic part that can get damaged when a wheel takes a hit. They however only replace the whole rack too, as they only use the original parts tesla provides them with.
To me it sounds insane that a “small plastic clip”, as so according to the body shop, warrants a repair of over 2000$.
