Ever wanted to take the battery pack out of your Tesla Model 3?
No. We definitely don't advise that you remove the battery pack. However, it's still very interesting to see the entire process in this concise video. In fact, YouTuber Byron takes out the Tesla Model 3 battery pack in less than 10 minutes. Well ... not really. But, if you're interested in this sort of thing and don't have the time to sit through one of our deep-dive shares, this video should do the trick.
As you can see from the video, these guys have happened upon a wrecked Tesla Model 3. They're honest to admit that the battery pack removal wasn't as easy as they anticipated it to be. You'll definitely need a lift and some strong mechanical abilities. In addition, you have to deconstruct part of the Model 3's interior to access some bolts that secure the pack to the vehicle.
While the video is short -- it's clear that less critical footage has been edited out -- it outlines the most important aspects of the process quite clearly. We'd be interested to learn if someone could watch the video and remove the pack successfully. Any takers?
If you've ever removed a battery pack from an EV, we'd love to hear from you in the comment section below.
