I believe the motor for the Model S is in the rear and for the RAV4 is in the front. So the S bulletin is probably not appropriate.

The bulletin is stating that it's not a motor noise, it's a battery contactor noise. As the contactor in the RAV4 is the same as the one in the Model S, it appears the bulletin applies.

And, the Model S has motors on both ends.

asavage you are my kind of masochist!
over 50 hours to get your car back home to save $400

Last January I Flew from San Diego To Boise to purchase a 2019 Chevy Bolt
The plane ticket I won at company Christmas party
For this trip of 960 miles I paid for 274 kwh of energy at a cost of $118.67 I averaged 3.5 miles per kwh, not bad considering there are lots of elevation changes.
and I got to visit friends in Carson City NV that I haven't seen in a while.
People still call me crazy/stupid for doing it.

It's not like I needed to save the money, I was really PO'd about the lopsided shipping costs though. And I had the time. I was expecting that the public L2 chargers would supply at the rate I get at home (40A, 9.6kw) but none of the stops were provisioned at that level. I certainly wouldn't do that trip again, knowing what I do now.
