Tesla Model Y Owners & Service Manuals

Tesla Model Y: Closing

The Model Y hood is not heavy enough to latch under its own weight and applying pressure on the front edge or center of the hood can cause damage.

To properly close the hood:

1. Lower the hood until the striker touches the latches.

2. Place both hands on the front of the hood in the areas shown (in green), then press down firmly to engage the latches.

3. Carefully try to lift the front edge of the hood to ensure that it is fully closed.

Closing

CAUTION: To prevent damage:

  • Apply pressure only to the green areas shown. Applying pressure to the red areas can cause damage.
  • Do not close the hood with one hand. Doing so applies concentrated force in one area and can result in a dent or crease.
  • Do not apply pressure to the front edge of the hood. Doing so can crease the edge.
  • Do not slam or drop the hood.
  • To avoid scratches, don't have anything in your hands (keys). Jewelry can also cause scratches.

WARNING: Before driving, you must ensure that the hood is securely latched in the fully closed position by carefully trying to lift the front edge of the hood upward and confirming there is no movement. If the front trunk is not closed, a message displays on the touchscreen that you cannot shift the vehicle out of Park until the front trunk is securely closed.

The front trunk locks when:

  • You lock Model Y using the touchscreen, key or mobile app.
  • You leave Model Y carrying your key (if Walk-Away Door Lock is turned on).
  • Valet mode is active (see Valet Mode).
