  3. 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...

  4. 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. The passenger side mat is just laid in the footwell but the thin dangly bits on the driver's side can obviously shift about & get caught under the pedals which...

  6. Exhaust manifold stud broken

    Our 2001 Pulse has just started making a shrill noise when you accelerate. I haven't taken anything apart yet, but looking with a torch it appears that one of the studs fixing the exhaust manifold to the block has broken. So, I assume I'm going to need a set of studs, plus two for the exhaust,...

  14. 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.
