Tesla recalls more than 11,000 Cybertrucks due to disconnection of the trim element and problems with the wiper

Tesla announced a new recall of a large batch of Cybertrucks. The reason was malfunctions with the wipers and elements of the car's trim. In total, the company received two requests to recall more than 11,000 cars.

Cybertruck owners began to complain about problems with wipers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) recall notice states that the problem is related to the wiper actuator, which fails due to “excessive stress,” which can result in impaired visibility. Tesla service centers will replace the drive free of charge.

The second problem is related to the plastic overlay along the outer lining of the trunk (sail applique), which is attached to the car with glue. On the recalled Cybertrucks, the pads are installed incorrectly, which can cause them to become disconnected from the vehicle, NHTSA says, and this situation while driving threatens a crash. The automaker says it will replace or rework the part on affected customers' cars.

This review applies to all Tesla Cybertrucks produced since May 26, 2024, which is exactly 11,383 trucks. As for the wiper issues, they have all Cybertrucks produced since June 6, 2024 (that's 11,688 vehicles).

In April, Tesla announced a recall of 3,878 Cybertrucks (all previously issued to customers) due to the need for inspection one of the main components of the electric pickup's motion control and replacing the accelerator pedal as part of compliance with traffic safety.

The company also issued a service manual for installing a protective rivet on the accelerator pedal pad for all of its previously sold Cybertruck cyber pickups. The riveting in the lower part of the pedal structure is necessary to securely hold the pad in place and not allow it to move even with strong pressure. Without a rivet, the accelerator pedal pad in a Cybertruck worth up to $120,000 can move due to a structural flaw, get stuck in the trim, and cause the car to accelerate for a long time without being able to stop quickly.
