Forum: w453 - General discussions relating to the forfour

A Forum dedicated to the smart forfour (w453 model) - 2014 onwards

  1. Question Annoying seat click click? Any ideas?

    I love driving my ForFour but it has a click click when cornering which is beginning to really annoy me. Happens when I corner and my weight dips into the side of the seat and clicks again when coming out of the corner. I thought at first something rolling back and forth but it's not. If I put my...

  4. Question Removal of rear view mirror?

    Loving my forfour and really getting to grips with it but would like to get a smaller rear view mirror as the factory one is quite wide and obscures my view of right hand turnings and emerging traffic including slip lanes on motorways. I sit high up in my forfour as I’m tall which doesn’t help...

  6. Removing OEM armrest - help[emoji31][emoji31]

    I decided the armrest that came in my new forfour was rubbish (after a bit of plastic fell out on its first use, and it's so flimsy!) so I ordered one from wood company and it looks cracking...... only problem is I can't for the life of me figure out how to remove the original one!? I've removed...

  7. Red face White air vent reflections!

    I do love the black and white interior on my forfour but one thing I noticed even before I brought it was the reflection of the white air vent surrounds on the windscreen. I decided to do something about it albeit a temporary one. I got the best black insulating tape I could find and removed the...

  8. Question Anyone using a dashcam in a forfour?

    I have a dashcam from a previous car but finding it difficult where to mount it in the forfour. I find the rear view mirror sits quite low to me and restricts my forward view but then I am tall. I thought of putting it behind this mirror to hide it a bit but there's not enough room so I'm...

  9. Engine Problem

  10. Thumbs up New owner Hello

    Hello from a new 453 owner here in Kent. More tempted by the ForFour which is why I went with it. I had a Fortwo some years ago and was registered on here. Been awhile but I'm back again.:icon_smil Only had mine since yesterday and earlier today had an alarm going off several times. I had a...

  11. Hello! :)

    I'm about to rejoin the smarties..... so excited 😬 my new job involves a lot of driving and city centre parking so the wrangler had to go. I had one of the original fortwo's many years ago and loved it apart from the transmission so thought I'd give the new ones a try. Unfortunately my gorgeous...

  12. Smart Forfour Electric Drive review

    Article was posted up a couple of days ago. https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/smart/forfour-electric-drive A bigger and heavier version of the fortwo electric drive, but using the same small 17.6kWh battery pack and no CHAdeMO or CCS option for DC rapid charging. Seems a bit of a shame as...

  13. 4/4 Seat covers needed... Any recommendations please.

    My orange squabs are getting a bit grubby and as per my other post have been hitched recently so looking for "fitted" front seat covers. My dealer informs me that there isn't a specific Smart product? Thanks.

  14. Rusty Drive Shafts

    My Forfour is less than 12 months old and has less than 7500 miles on the clock. I recently looked under the rear of the car and was surprised to see that the drive shafts were very rusty. I would not have expected this on a car this young. Is this normal? Has anyone else noticed this on their cars?

  16. Word of warning!

    If your car is in for a service etc. and you have the cloth mesh seats then insist that a seat cover is used. Too late for me I'm afraid and I now have 2 hitches in the seat from either a trouser seat, the head of a vacuum hose etc..? Can't prove it of course but they weren't there beforehand!!

  17. Tomtom estimated time of arrival

    My wife picked up an Edition White a few months ago. All is good and a vast improvement on the Passion Cabrio we had 15 years ago, now having a daughter the back seats are also useful. Averaging close to 40mpg on largely school run rush hour trips. The only issue I can't resolve is with the...

  18. 2 questions if i may please... 4/4 Edition #1 2015

    1. I notice that the new Smarts have an electronic MPH indicator within the dashboard menu. Does anyone know if a plug in to the Mercedes/Smart updates will make this facility possible on my 2015 model? 2. I have the orange interior - how do other owners clean/remove stains from the orange mesh...

  19. Super Unleaded and running in?

    I picked up my new Forfour 0.9 turbo auto on Friday and noticed by chance when I was looking at the specs that it said to use Super Unleaded. Just as well as I would have put the regular unleaded in it. Got to fill it up later this week for my first drive down the motorway to visit family in...

  20. Which model to go for?

    Hello. I have fallen love with the Forfour and went for a test drive yesterday. I want to buy a new one but cannot decide whether to go for 1.0l prime or 0.9 turbo with more horsepower. I live in a hilly area but was surprised by the 1.0l which I test drove as it was better than I thought after...
