Does your Model 3/Y make a squeaking noise when you turn the steering wheel at slow speeds or going over bumps. The ball joint in the front upper control arm is most likely the issue. This kit consists of all the parts and tools to drill and tap the top of the ball joint to install a grease fitting to help lubricate the ball joint and eliminate the noise that comes from it. Save yourself several hundred dollars by doing this repair yourself. 

 

Simply open the hood, remove the frunk, remove the 4 push rivets holding the rubber covers from the fender area, drill a 1/8" pilot hole, then a 13/64" final hole. Tap with a 1/4 28 tap, install the grease fitting and fill with grease, then move wheels from left to right and install more grease to make sure the ball joint as sufficient lubrication. Like magic the noise will be gone. If the noise returns just add more grease. *if ball joint has play in it this is not a recommended repair. The control should be replaced if the ball joint has play in it.
