  1. Rate my actuator!

    Hi everyone As you know I have been having some transmission issues so thought I would do a quick video of my actuator in action! Can anyone see or hear anything that suggests it needs adjusting, replacing or cleaned/lubed? Thanks Paul

  7. 451 fan/blower issues

    The fan on my 451 reacts badly to bumps in the road sometimes staying off until the end of the journey no matter if the ignition is recycled. I have taken the fan to pieces and cleaned the contacts, it now blows much better than before BUT is still affected by the road surface. If I jiggle...

  8. GB-10 sat nav

    Does anyone have the Pioneer f910-bt sat nav unit fitted to their 451 from the factory? I've retro-fitted this unit to my 2009 cdi, it came with leads and a 451 fascia so I know it's a dedicated Smart unit. My niggle is that the unit comes on with the ignition, that is often a real pain. ...

  12. 2010 451 84hp turbo gearbox oil change

    Morning folks. I managed to change the gearbox oil on a 451 84hp turbo a while ago, as task made much more difficult due to some sort of plastic (intercooler?) air scoop that sits right in the way of the fill plug. I couldn't see this piece on the guide I used, nor how to remove it. In one...

  14. Hissing sound after driving

    Hi all, I went to test drive a smart for two 451 MHD 2010. After test driving, I noticed a hissing sound and water dripping from the bottom of the car. The hissing sounded like air being released from a tyre. My suspicion is that it is related to the air conditioning and is completely normal. But,...

  19. Stutter (misfire) on a cdi

    Hi, have an annoying fault that has just started on our 2009 451 Passion CDI. Under quick acceleration the engine seems to stutter (I can only describe it as very similar to a “misfire” on a petrol car). It will run fine around the town fine but get it up to 60mph and it does the stutter (misfire)...
