  1. Seat Replacement

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Can anyone tell me if the seats from a 2013 can be installed in a 2008? Can't imagine why not, they look the same. But, thought I'd ask. Thanks! Kevin
  2. Fuel Pump Calibration After Replacement

    I don't have a 453, I have a 451 (This is the 451 section of "Smart Operation and Maintenance. :) )
  3. Fuel Pump Calibration After Replacement

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Wow...that stinks. The fuel pump and pressure sensor cost me about $300. Can't imagine what the whole ass'y would cost. :(
  4. Fuel Pump Calibration After Replacement

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Spoke to the dealer (not local as the local MB dealer doesn't deal with Smarts). They said the only thing that might cause it is a physical restriction of the float (doubtful) or the instrument panel hasn't reset yet. So...I'm going to drive it until the low fuel light comes on and refill...
  5. Fuel Pump Calibration After Replacement

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    My local MB dealer is clueless to the Smart world. Also, in my 14 yrs of owning and maintaining a Mercedes SLK230, I've found interacting with those who do their own maintenance far more informative and less expensive than going to the dealer.

    Sooo...no one can give me any insight? :shrug:
  7. Fuel Pump Calibration After Replacement

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    So, I had to replace my fuel pump because I got the dreaded "all bars blinking" issue. That is now resolved. However, now I'm only showing 6 of 8 bars even though the tank is full. Is there some sort of recalibration that needs to take place after replacing the fuel pump? Thanks! Kevin
  8. Subwoofer Size

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    I'll probably keep the factory tweeters for now just because I don't feel like tearing the dash out. But, I suspect the factory sub is dry rot or close since the passenger side door speaker was. I have some nice, 5.25 Pioneer subwoofers of which one I'd like to put in the existing box. That's...
  9. Subwoofer Size

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Sorry...451. :) Also, are there speakers in the dash somewhere? I replaced my head unit last night and could swear I heard audio coming from the dash. Am I losing my mind? :shrug:
  10. Subwoofer Size

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    I did a search, but didn't find what I was after. Can someone tell me the size of the OEM subwoofer speaker under the driver's seat? I'd like to replace it. The speakers in the doors are dry rot, and I suspect the sub isn't too far behind. Thanks! Kevin
  11. MPG

    smart Fuel Economy
    These past couple of weeks have been 100+, that makes sense. I'll try adjusting to 65, but anything slower than that and I'll feel like I'm gonna get run down from behind. Or worse, pushed to the side when semis blow by me. :o
  12. MPG

    smart Fuel Economy
    Ouch! Really? I've done my own maintenance for some 35 yrs. I was always taught to run your tires at the manufacturer's recommendations. Over-inflating will degrade the condition and performance of the tire. Not to mention it is also dangerous for handling. If that's what I need to do to better...
  13. MPG

    smart Fuel Economy
    :o I've had my '08 Cabrio a couple weeks now (bought it with 125K on the odo). I drive it back and forth to work (32 miles round trip with half topless) and a little around town. Most of it is highway at 70mph. I got a measly 30.5 mpg. :crying: I'm not sure what the condition of the air cleaner...
  14. Full Service Manual?

    With the conversion, it actually came out to $12.99! :D And...sorry for hijacking the thread. 0:) Kevin
  15. Full Service Manual?

    DOH! My bad...I MEANT $15/yr. :laugh:
  16. Full Service Manual?

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Certainly looks well worth $15/mo. Question though: I see this is a UK site, will this cover listed aspects of LHD Smarts? Thanks! Kevin

    I've always liked these cars. Rented one when we were in Germany back around 2007. I just couldn't justify having two, two-seat "Mercedes" (I have a 2000 Designo Copper SLK230, hence the username :D). Since I'm wanting to do some much needed maintenance on my SLK that will be beyond the weekend...
