Welcome to SCoA!
Not sure what happened to the images, guessing that wherever they were hosted, hosts them no more. Given it's age, could have been a victim of the photobucket debacle.Anyone know why the pictures no longer display on this sticky? Kinda like a post-it note which won't stick, kinda useless.

They're not the same, but there are shift motor images in my teardown thread that might help visualize what's being described in this thread.
Shift motor teardown (and maybe someday, rebuild) - shift motor images are a couple of posts down. If you need specific images, let me know and I'll do my best to take some and post to either thread.
Thanks. Moderator needs to add the pictures back to the sticky. Or put the other thread there. Pictures are so helpful. I did the removal and cleaning anyway, having done it once before. Wanted to refresh my memory using the sticky. I didn't have to cut up the intake to get it out but do have a nice purple finger and will probably lose a finger nail to remind me how much of a pain it is.
First, you'll probably get better results making a new thread for things like this. Check your connections, make sure you didn't forget to connect, tighten, adjust, etc. If it was working before, it should work after...provided you didn't bodge something up.Hi everyone , I’ve just got a smart 451 and gear change was working but a bit sluggish so I came across this post and stripped and cleaned the actuator I then decided at the same time to strip and clean the gear motors and change the gearbox oil , when I got it all back together and turned ignition on there was a lot of noise etc while it was checking the gears , then when it finished the car would not start , I tried the learn mode with ignition on , it goes into reverse, neutral, 1 and 2 and back but will not go into 3 4 or 5 , the car will start after this but not move, it won’t go into any gear when running, once I turn it off I have to repeat the process to get it to start again but it’s always the same
Any ideas please
