Told states in an official filing; “The front trunk latch assembly may be misaligned, preventing the secondary hood latch from engaging” the company believes that since the Model S problem is a misalignment rather than a damaged component, so the repositioning of latch device at a service centre will resolve the issue. For affected Model 3 owners, Tesla has pledged to install a new cable harness and guide protector free of charge.
