  7. Rubber door seals.

    The rubber door seals on our 1999 Smart ForTwo are looking a bit tired and I believe they may leak in heavy rain. Question is: Does anyone know who sells them, or are they just available from main dealers ? . Many thanks as always for any help.

Whilst towing on an A frame, that attaches to the front wishbones, I hit a low wall with the nearside rear side whilst turning at walking pace. This dented the...

  13. Fixing floor mats

    I have just bought a 2001 Smart Passion LHD which came without the Smart rubber floor mats. I just bought a pair of used LHD ones on eBay.

    Hi all, I have tried searching but can't find anything :( Our 450 seems to be lacking some pressure for the washers. It's all topped up and when you pull the lever (or is it push?) nothing comes out, well it does but trickles down the jets rather than on the windscreen! It's also the same...

    Just bought a second Smart car, it's a 2005 ForTwo Nightrun. Taken a bit of a punt on this as the engine is a bit noisy.

  16. Oil leak - 2001 Pulse (fixed)

    I was concerned that our Smart was dripping oil after a drive. It was hard to tell where from, but it seemed to be running down the outside of the sump from somewhere on the right hand side of the engine, and I worried that it was the oil seal behind the crankshaft pulley. Looking on fq101, I...
