Noise Reduction Kit

fitment
Model 3/Y
Installation
install difficulty:

Please make a selection on all options

Made from a single length of EPDM rubber (generally used in the automotive industry for seals due to its suitability for outdoor use), this fills the gap around the top glass roof panel on your Model 3 or Y and helps to reduce wind noise, especially on the leading edge where the roof meets the windshield. The result will of course vary by speed, road surface and wind speed, but also by your Model 3 or Y, as the gap tolerances can be quite variable. Watch Erik's video below for a detailed study of the noise reduction, which averaged around 5db.

Installation just takes a few minutes, no tools or expertise needed, although a helper is useful, especially on the Model Y, since the roof is larger.

Tip: If you find the kit is loose in one or more of the channels, this is because the alignment of the roof glass can vary quite a bit across the fleet. If this is the case, we recommend a small (1"/30mm) dab of silicone sealant in the middle of each edge, as that will hold the rubber in place, and, should you choose to remove it later, is completely reversible, as the sealant only makes a semi-permanent bond to the rubber seal on the car.

Please watch the video below for a quick overview of the process. The key things to remember are to not cut the rubber loop, you just need to work it around until any slack is gone. Also remember to ensure it's pressed in well all the way around, to prevent it from coming loose, and check it again after a few days, since it will contract/expand.

Tip: On Model Y (and occasionally Model 3) you might notice the rubber tube goes under the corner of the glass on the rear edge. This is nothing to worry about. The tube is made from EDPM, and the glass is sealed with a very strong butyl seal (it has to be strong, since the roof is part of the safety structure). The rubber tube cannot 'saw' away at the butyl seal, nor will it ever do it any harm.
