  1. Getting a new key just turned into a $1,300+ repair job due to SAM control unit.

    At least from my perspective, I have found this to be an effective way to get things done. It is not the first time I have done this when dealing with German companies. I'll let you know when I get an answer.

    I attended a telematics conference this week and discovered that the cause of this " bricking," as it is called in the industry, is the disassociation of the engine units circuits with the immobilizer unit. This happens through programming. Some can be resolved, some not. In either case, the...

    Thanks for your fast reply! Where do you live?
  5. How can I tell if my 2009 451 coupe has a rain sensor?

    I discovered that the windshields come both ways, which may mean this is part of a parts deal, or perhaps a trim level. I have a Passion 2 door. Any advice from the community? Thanks!

    I marvel at your knowledge! I was working in Stuttgart when the car first came out, then went to Bosnia for NATO and was focused on other items until I came back to a job at Daimler Chrysler.
  7. Get rid of your battery with this replacement - NAPA 7547

    smart Modifications
    I definitely understand the smoother shifting, given the increased power to the shifting mechanism by the electrical system.

    Thank you for this. Any idea if the transmission on the 450 is the same as the transmission on the 451? Leonard and Dan, please contact me through private message. I'm at a conference locally, but have evening time. Thanks

    Miss Mercedes, Through an accident of fate, I won an auction for 27 boxes of Snap-On tools, which I have been selling part time for years to get rid of. If you told me what you needed, and were willing to pay the gas in my one-ton diesel, I might visit once the weather gets better. I say that...

    So these have to be ordered through a dealer?

    Hello everyone! I have been bitten by smart bugs and am suffering from smart fever. I am especially looking for a smart diesel, which I believe is available only in the 450 style car. Would be great to know if there's one around. Prefer one that is intact and not the victim of an accident...
  12. Compatibility of 450 body panels

    450
    Does anyone know if the 450 body panels are compatible with those on the 451? I am also looking for a 450 diesel, and would like to know if some of my extra body panels will fit on a 450, assuming I am lucky enough to find a diesel. Thanks in advance for all advice and info.

  14. Getting ready to change the boots in a 2009 451.

    When I reviewed the item on Ebay, it said that parts have a lifetime warranty. Does this mean that the originals do have this lifetime warranty, as well?

    Knowing how Mercedes has changed the last several years (so has Daimler) I'm not sure that the smart division of Daimler has a plan for stuff like that. The 450 stocks are no longer required. I'm sending a note soon to Daimler to get a build ticket for the vehicle, since my requests for...
  16. Getting ready to change the boots in a 2009 451.

    451
    Thanks to dhl and jwight for their encouragement! First I need to find a good source of the boots, and whether of not the Ligarex clamps are the best choice for use on the 451. Also: what about CV boot grease? Do I use what comes with the boot (if anything comes with it)? If nothing comes...
  17. Smart Fortwo 451 Interior Light

    Safety
    These switches do go bad if you use them very much- or not at all, then change them. They are similar to MB W123 light switches which don't last after 30 years in the same position.

    Thanks for highlighting this. Anyone heard any more about it? It might create good competition with the Europeans regarding spare parts.

    Why not have both? I once worked at length on a 1926 Citroen B14 where the manual was very expensive, having been loaned by the owner to the local auto museum. I care made copies, replaced the manual, then used the copies to make a .pdf This way, the original manual never saw any dirt. When I...
