  1. Power steering noise

    My 2005 Brabus makes a creaking noise when turning the steering wheel. It is most notable when stationary and appears to come from the dash area just behind the wheel. Also I can feel a slight juddering through the wheel at the same time. It sounds exactly the same as this YouTube clip. ...

  2. Car Occasionally Won't Change Up Gear

    Hi all I just registered, first post, shame it's asking about a problem! We just picked up our smart car on Monday, a 2006 700cc Grandstyle. We had a 2004 600cc a few years ago so I'm well aware of the laborious and often dangerous gear changes. However, I've noticed something odd happen...

  12. 599cc Zee units again

  15. Question 599cc ZEE diagnostics

    Hi folks, I have a 2002 599cc Smart with ZEE unit rather than SAM. I've seen talk of these Delphi DS150-E things that allow diagnostics, clutch adjustments etc. Do they work with the 599 Smart or is it just for the later 698 cars? Cheers.

  20. Is Trust+ / Traction control tuneable ?

    Hi there, I just had new tyres put on the rear wheels and every now and then the traction control engages when cornering (only seems to be corners on hills so the camber of the road might be a trigger), bit annoying as I don't like a front wheel brake grabbing when I'm not telling it to. ...
