    Hello, I own a ED3 (3,7-22kW) 451.390 Smart fortwo ED 2016 After a period of time parked, like when I take the car in the morning, I hear a noise in the front the first few seconds. It disappears quickly. The sound is like the discs would push the brake pads the first few turns of the wheel...

    Hello all, and thanks for your help in advance! I’m new to the Smart family as I just purchased a 2009 Smart Brabus. The maintenance has been super easy so far (changing oil & changing transmission fluid) but there’s a weird squealing noise at low speeds while turning mainly. There’s no kind...

    On my '09 ForTwo pure, I have this recurring weird noise. I have noticed it sometime after 30k (36k presently on the odometer), and here is the only way that I can classify this sound: - Occurs at 60+ MPH - Occasional noise. Occurs weather it's windy or not. I can hear the noise especially when...

    While warming up the engine for an oil change, I noticed a periodic noise, kind of a ratcheting sound. I looked and it seemed to happen in sync with a rotating part on the right side of the engine. This part is a small wheel with an arm attached to it that rotates back and forth. It possibly...

    Hello! I have been a lurker for a while, but now that my 2009 Carbio came in last week, I spent the better part of this weekend installing a new stereo system and I am having an annoying little problem that I hope somebody might have a recommendation for. First, a little about my system. I'm...
