Tesla plans to replace the autopilot camera on the front fenders of some electric vehicles for free. CNBC.. Tesla hasn’t issued a recall yet, but the news agency distributed an internal document to an authorized service provider in late November, asking the owner to replace the defective repeater camera for free. Apparently, the cameras on some of the Models S, X, and 3 vehicles manufactured by the company at the Fremont, Calif. Plant have defective printed circuit boards.
These cameras capture the blind spots of the car and the autopilot wouldn’t work without them. If it is not working as intended, the driver will usually only see the block box on the main display and may be alerted that the autopilot’s capabilities are limited. CNBC Tesla states that cameras in at least hundreds of vehicles may have to be replaced as a result of a defect in the PCB used.
