As spotted by the folks over at Tesla North, service subscriptions through Tesla’s website are currently showing a free download of manuals for its vehicles, allowing anyone to access its car manuals for free.
To download the official Tesla service manuals without paying anything, all you need to do is signup for a $0 subscription through the company’s website, which will allow you to click on the tabs “service and repair information,” and “diagnostic software.”
Hm, looks like Tesla service manuals are now free (as in $0 annual subscription price)

According to Tesla’s website, subscription pricing for diagnostic software costs $3,000 a year or $500 per month. While it remains unclear at this time whether this is a limited-time change or not, the company is so far allowing users to download the manuals for free just by signing up.
You just need to sign in with your Tesla account, enter your address, pick pricing choice Option 1 “INDV365 (365 DAY) USD 0”, agree to the terms, and sign up. No credit card payment is needed.
You’ll get a confirmation email and get immediate access to the service manuals for Model S, Model 3, Model X, Model Y, and Roadster.
The service manuals have everything you need to know to diagnose and tear apart your Tesla. So if you haven’t already, go ahead and download the official Tesla service manuals for free while you can.
