Tesla releases parts catalogue to public

Tesla has made available an online parts catalogue for Model 3, Model S, Model X and Roadster cars to the public. The move comes amidst the ‘Right to Repair’ campaign in USA, which asks manufacturers to make available spare parts, diagnostics and service manuals to independent repair shops and owners.

At present, only Tesla owners from the state of Massachusetts can access documents like repair manuals, service manuals, wiring harness etc. as it is the only state mandating sharing this information with owners. Other car makers in USA have agreed to follow this state's format across the country from the 2018 model year in order to avoid state-by-state requirements. Tesla was not a part of this group of automakers. However, it has released the information to the public.

While individually ordering parts from Tesla is not yet possible, it is rumoured to be in the pipeline. The owners can log on to this website and access the data by selecting the “general public” option. Back in 2014, the company had open sourced all their patents.
