  1. Smart 450 Roof Leaking- How do I fix?

    I have a 450 City Passion with sunroof. The problem obviously occurs when it's been raining and the water collects in the roof so when driving quite a lot of water can leak out.

  3. 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.

  7. 599cc Zee units again

  19. Oil leak

    I have today just brought a 2006 pulse cabrio, however there is an oil leak, it appears to be coming from a rubber hose that goes to a rigid metal pipe that is clipped into the middle back of the engine behind the driveshaft. I have photos but I don't know how to put them up! Thank you
