Tesla will repair Model 3 with "thunk" sound in battery

This issue that was starting to make noise in the Tesla Model 3 owner community has finally been made official by the brand.
Have you ever heard noises coming from your battery while charging? It seems normal, but if you hear noises during the ascent and descent in the mountains your battery has a manufacturing defect.
These different noises are related to two distinct phenomenas, noises during the recharge are expansion noises of the battery and the metal plate that moves.

On the other hand, noises that come from the battery during the road are caused by a pressure difference inside and outside the battery, this difference is therefore rebalanced but causes significant noise in the battery.
This defect caused by the "Breathers",part which can be replaced by Tesla on request.
