  1. Alternator repair or replace?

    Alternator not charging battery. Tested on vehicle with volt meter across battery and showed no charge coming to battery. Also tested off vehicle by battery shop who said it wasn't working. Are alternators repairable or do I need a new one (£250)? 450 2003 City pure 0.7 petrol.

  6. 599cc Zee units again

  9. 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.

  14. 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. ...
