When Pedal Pads Go Wild

It's not every day you get to witness a truck's accelerator pedal become a thrill-seeker, but here we are. Tesla's Cybertruck, with its futuristic angles and promise of electric domination, faced a wee bit of a hiccup – or should we say, a full-on pedal-to-the-metal hiccup. A viral video showcased an adventurous pedal pad that decided to part ways with its metal counterpart, leading to the Cybertruck's version of "Fast and the Furious."

The Riveting Resolution

You've heard of speed runs, but Tesla's got the speed-fix down to an art. At the Cybertruck's very own "Cyber Takeover" event, proud onlookers watched a Tesla worker wield a drill like Excalibur, turning a pedal problem into a 35-second spectacle of precision and rivets. And just like that, the pedal pad's wanderlust was curbed, nailed down to its rightful place, never to roam again.

Measure Twice, Rivet Once

But wait, there's more! It's not just about the riveting action; Tesla's Service Bulletin reveals a meticulous dance of measurement and examination. Tesla techs get up close and personal with the aluminum pedal pad, ensuring it’s not keeping too much distance from its pedal backing. If they find the pad playing hard to get (5mm or more of cold shoulder), it's time for a complete pedal assembly makeover.

Cleanup on Aisle Cybertruck

After taming the accelerator with a rivet, the Tesla team isn't quite done. They turn into detectives, inspecting their handiwork with a mirror like it's a scene from CSI: Cybertruck. Then comes the glamorous part: cleanup duty. Because nothing says luxury like meticulously removing every speck of debris from a truck that costs more than most people's homes. Ah, the price of an untrustworthy pedal!
