  1. 451 Brakes

    I sold my 451 to my niece and she says the brakes are shot so I got her a quote of 151.19 inc GST for a new set of front brake discs and pads. I presume its most likely to be the front brakes at fault but is there any rear brake discs?

  2. Keyless entry remote acting up.

    One minute it works normally then the next time I use it it doesn't. When I press LOCK, UNLOCK or the HATCH button, the lights flash 3 times but the doors don't unlock. If a door is open and I press any button, both door locks go on and off twice. The most annoying thing is when I can't get the...

  4. Stereo fuse keeps blowing

    Hi all, my stereo keeps blowing thebl10a fuse at the back of the unit by the dins. Any ideas and does the wiring look right (pic to follow as can't upload now) as the leads going into the din were loose when I took it out. Its not worked since I've had the car. Thanks 👍

  5. Permanently disable ECO/MHD or repair!

    Hi all For the last few days I have been driving only with ECO off and touch wood the car has driven fine with it off. For those that haven't seen my previous posts the car was going into neutral when driving, then not selecting gear, jumping & slack gear changes. So it seems MHD is the...

  9. 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

It seemed OK for about 18 months but I didn't drive it that much, in the last 18 months I've driven it more and its failure got steadily worse with the recent belt only making 2 weeks !!!...

  13. 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...

  14. 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. ...

  18. 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...

  20. 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,...
