  1. Headlight skewed

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    The driver side headlight (low beam) of my 2008 Passion is skewed severely to the left (to the right from the perspective standing in front, facing the car.). There is no damage to the pod/module, or surrounding frame,. and nothing (that I can touch is loose) is loose. I find only one...
  2. Uneven headlights

    smart fortwo Electric Drive
    A couple of weeks ago I drove our other car while my wife drove my Smart ED behind me. I noticed that the headlights of the Smart were uneven in brightness. I couldn't figure out whether it was a misaligned reflector orientation or actual light power difference. So, I took it to the dealer and...
  3. Headlight out...

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    2009 Smart, USA: Had to replace one of the headlight bulbs. Plugged it in and the connector sparked and blew the new bulb. Got another new bulb and put it in. Now this side, this socket only does not work. Not sure where to look to repair only a single light when it is not the bulb. Any...
  4. Headlight wiring issues

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    We just brought our 2010 Smart Coupe home yesterday. One of the issues with it is that the drivers side headlight doesn't work. Unfortunately it's not going to be a quick fix, somebody had jerry-rigged the socket with a replacement and the wires were scorched. I fixed that mess but there's...
  5. LED headlights

    Interior & Exterior
    I must apologize for not posting this sooner. I've owned this Passion 450 since purchasing it new in November 2006...back in December 2012, I was getting frustrated over headlight changes. After failing to find any suitable LED replacement options, I noticed that the newer buses around here...

Anyway... broken headlight and both panels scuffed( I came...

  9. Improve your H7 headlights in about 5 min for less than $50.

    smart Modifications
    Braddman recently posted a nice DIY about upgrading to HID. There is no question HIDs are the best technology available today for our headlights and it is a pity that smart does not offer HIDs as an option. As for myself, I tested a cheaper, easier modification: replacing the smart H7 bulbs...
  10. Headlight 'Flicker'

    smart General Discussion
    I know this issue has been brought up before, but I want to bring it to the surface. My morning drive to work starts @4:30 and it is ALWAYS dark with not too many cars on the road. As such I get a chance to see the headlight quality without much interference form other light sources. (other...
