For all my cars in the past i have always bought the Dealer "Shop Manual" or "Service Manual".
It typically has all the information about a car, including things like valve clearances, gear lash tolerances etc.
Concrete example: My wife hit the front bumper when parking the car, resulting in a permanent dent in the lower bumper "skirt" or splash guard.
I know that I can push it out from the inside with a heatgun, but for that I will need to take off the part.
The service manual would give a good overview of which clips to loosen and where the part is snapped vs. glued.
Anyone know of the existence of such a manual?
Or is there 3rd party tear-down manuals such as Chilton or Haynes (searched both, they have no Tesla coverage yet)
There must be more DIY car nuts out there who itch to disassemble the car?
