Tesla Model Y: Pull Onto Flatbed Truck From Rear

NOTE: If Model Y has no low voltage power, you need an external low voltage power supply to open the hood or use the touchscreen.

CAUTION: To avoid damage, only pull the vehicle onto a flatbed truck using a properly-installed tow eye. Using the tow hitch, chassis, frame, or suspension components to pull the vehicle can result in damage.

1. Locate the tow eye. The tow eye is located in the front trunk.

  • Do not place tie-down straps over body panels or through the wheels.

CAUTION: Attaching the tie-down straps to the chassis, suspension or other parts of the vehicle's body may cause damage.
