  1. Shifter Stuck After Clutch Change, Please Help (parking cable misaligned)

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this. Please help me if you can, I'm getting very desperate and starting to panic. I'm not a mechanic but don't have the budget for the dealer right now (it would take me a long time to save up for repairs through them). I have a 2011 U.S. 451...
  2. Tail gate won't unlatch on left side

    smart General Discussion
    I can't get the tail gate unlatched. The plastic lever appears loose and out of position compared to the right side. Anyone else seen this? I can't easily service the engine (check the oil) with the tail gate up. It's not particularly cold now either.
  3. Shifter Button Stuck quick-fix = WD-40!

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    I had my shifter button start to stick over 3 days, finally jamming completely in Park at work, and I tried everything I could to push it in. I tried pliers (wrapped in cloth), I tried hitting it with my fist (painful), I tried pressing a metal rod on it to get leverage. Nothing. Wouldn't budge...
