Help, semi-emergency: Starter removal on 2006 Cabrio??

I have my 2006 Cabrio sitting on the rack of a local garage as I type this, and no one there can figure out how to get to the starter!!!

Can anyone help me??? Please call or text me at 615-439-0881

Thanks

Tom in Tennessee

[EDIT: I called several smart canada locations, and was told they were not allowed to tell me the procedure, I would have to have it brought there (two day drive) and none of the local Mercedes shops will touch it either.]

Here's a starter removal procedure for a European 450. Maybe it will help.

By chance, how much did it cost to replace?

myt3cyl,

Unless you have a 1998-2007 smart, his starter is completely different than yours and his price is not related to the cost of a starter for yours. His smart has a 700cc turbocharged German engine and you have a 1000cc naturally aspirated Mitsubishi.
