Forum: w453 - General discussions relating to the forfour

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

  1. 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?

  2. How many speakers in passion model?

    As per title. Given that the rear doors look like they have speaker grilles and there are 2 other grilles above and behind rear seats, I assumed that the forfour would at least have 4 working speakers but during a ride home tonight I sat in back while wife drove home and noticed no sound at all...

  4. 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...

  7. Tweeter removal

    I've seen in c453 section there's a guide for removing / changing tweeters but the forfour is different as doesn't have a screw holding the cover in place and not enough room to slide cover up to release like on the fortwo. Has anyone removed the tweeter cover on the for four? , if so any advise...

  8. Knocking Steering on 2016 ForFour - Anyone Else?

    My wife's ForFour has had a knock on the steering for a while, sometimes more pronounced than others. We didn't worry about it as my E350 Mercedes has a very similar knock that the dealer said is perfectly normal. However, tonight on the way home it seemed much more pronounced on turning. ...

  9. Edition #1 roof lining, please check.

    I own a year old orange and black edition #1 and upon checking over the car prior to its first service I was horrified to find that the roof lining has developed a number of areas of staining particularly on the upper areas of the A pillar and around the map light switches etc. It can be best...

  11. Front wheel arch liner

    Does anyone know if there is a piece of arch liner missing in this photo? The three studs circled and the massive gap between the inner arch and the undertray make me think there should be an additional bit fitted. I can only find photos online of ForTwos and they look different. It's the same on...

  14. Turbo

    Recently my wife was using our Forfour Edition#1 when 300 yards into the journey it started to make a noise "like pushing a lawnmower across a concrete path". We contacted the dealer who sent the AA, when they arrived, they plugged her in to find TWELVE faults on the system. The root cause seemed...

  15. Any tips on fitting a twin horn upgrade?

    I want to fit a pair of Hella Sharptone horns to my W453 forfour but have no idea how much of the front end needs to be removed and how to do it. Have read TAIM's advice re the C453 but don't know how much of this applies directly to the forfour. I've sussed what I need to do to sort the...

  16. Rollback on a New ForFour with Hill Start Assist

    A long shot, as I assume that there are not very many on the road yet, but has anyone experienced rollback using Hill Start Assist with the new series Smart ForFour Passion automatics? I stress that the following may just be with my particular ForFour, which is now almost two months old; I have no...

  18. Distance warning function ...

    If, like me, you have the distance warning/collision avoidance option on your W453/C453, make sure your smart dealer updates the software at your next service. Reason - it should overcome the annoying false error message "Distance warning inoperative" that can be displayed during cold & damp...

  20. Brabus forfour

    Just waiting for my forfour to be serviced so had a look at the new brabus forfour they have here. I had a sit in it and I definately prefer my edition 1. The JBL system didn't sound much different to the standard speakers to my ears (maybe the subwoofer wasn't plugged in) and it doesn't come...
