    Doh, it's taken me 8 years to do a two minute fix! I hope this post helps someone. As in the title, water cannot drain away properly and tips out everywhere when the rear hatch is opened after rain. The factory sorted the problem thereafter by drilling the same two holes in the plastic window...

    Hi everyone I've scanned through the previous threads as I need help. I was given some LED bulbs to fit to the rev/clock and speedo. But the instructions that came with the are for a 450 where it simply says 'click off' the casings and states nothing about the screws. Can anyone help me OR...

  13. Carrying a cycle on a 451

    Is there a good cycle carrier for the 451, 2008 MHD model? I have seen a couple of wheel stands that you bolt on to the rear bumper, but cannot see from the advert how you would secure the top of the cycle frame to the car so that it doesn't wobble around.

  15. Ambient lighting

    Hi, This could be a stupid question but, I have always liked the look of the ambient lighting kit for the 451 but not the price is there a cheaper way of doing it as I have seen merc kits on ebay which suit the smart but is the wiring already there to just add the lights?

  16. red strobe Reversing light cable colour.

    What colour is the reverse light cable. I have fitted a reversing camera to my smart 451 Grandstyle cabrio. It is connected to a alpine ine-w970bt. How do you get it to work? I have gone into settings and set the camera to rear. Type auto. It does not come on either in reverse or at anytime.
