  2. 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.

  6. 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. ...

  17. Electrical connector repair?

    Hi. One of the wires going into my knock sensor has broken off at the connector. Any ideas how I can take it apart to rewire it? Not enough wire sticking out to connect onto therefore have to take the plug apart or find a new one. Unless anyone's got an old one with longer wires I could buy?
