Is the gas filler flap lock adjustable? In or out? Mine seems like it is "in" too far and will not engage the latch pin. Thought I would ask here before I started taking things apart.

I fixed it. Just so you know, the lock motor is held in with 3 plastic clips and a plastic locating pin. Mine was not on the locating pin, but behind it. I have no idea how it got into this position. I aligned the motor and the locating pin, snapped it back in and that solved the problem.

Which would be great... if I had one. :oops:

Operating under the theory that if someone tells you a fence is electrified: you just HAVE to touch it...
I tried locking my Smart, and opening the fuel flap...
It was locked-up tight! (y)

I have had my Blue Smart from new in 2008. I read the manual and understood how it worked but I never tested it until I got my Yellow 2008 Smart. With 115,000 miles I was checking everything and found the flap did not lock. I walked over the the Blue one and tested it for the first time.

I've been looking for the book that should have been with my car... (I'm funny that way...) I didn't realize that asking questions could ever be a problem in an open forum... :cry:
I'll try to limit my questions from this point forward

We don't seem to get as many posters on the site as in years past. Bob, I am glad you are here and post often so I have something to look forward to reading.
