  1. CDI fuel problem

    Are there any documented cases of the high pressure pump seal leaking diesel into the oil. Since I got the car I have had increasing oil levels, this doesn't really bother me as I just change the oil regularly. I put it down to me doing pitifully low mileage. A few months ago on an airport...

    Hi I have a Brabus 451 with 65000 miles original clutch. Interesting in finding out how many miles other people’s clutches have lasted for 451 only. Thanks

    I want to replace the rear bumper centre section and offside rear panel on my 2008 smart 451 because they are scuffed. I already ordered the parts and read the procedure on Evilution but it looks too complicated for me to attempt on my own without damaging something. Can anyone recommend a...

  7. 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?

  8. what battery fits 2008 451 turbo

    Hi, can someone point me to a cheap-ish replacement battery that fits a 2008 451 ForTwo 1.0 petrol turbo? I gather it needs a gas vent but none of them specify this. What is the OEM battery? Is it a Banner? The Banner web site doesn't list the 451 but this might be an error.

  9. 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...

    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...
