    I must admit I have contributed less & less as the years have passed. The club spirit to owning a Smart has disappeared, which is a shame, it's now just another car. No more waving to other Smarts,...

    We still run our two 450's. Bought the wifes one in 2003 & mine in 2005. Still used daily & I still enjoy the quirkiness of the original Smarts. I recently had to have some work done on mine, so a...

    What has happened to me is the outside door handle sticks slightly & doesn't go back in properly. Bit of silicon spray on the plastic handle did the trick.

    I remember years ago watching my dad hitting opposite sides of the drum with two hammers simultaneously, to get the drum off. It worked for him.

    Hi Paul,
    looking at the top picture, it looks like the main body is made in two pieces.
    There are flats for spanners in two places. Does it just unscrew?
    Just a thought.

    Hi Paul

    Sounds like a wiring insulation fault at the door hinge where the wires go from the body to the door, probably chaffed through at some point.
    good luck

    Never heard of it, but that's not to say it isn't any good.

    The only thing I noticed is that it's made to MB229.3 not MB229.5.

    What difference this makes, I've not got a scooby.

    I thought about the powerflex bushes, but thought the original mount was good enough for 100+K miles, so didn't bother.
    Do you think the additional mount was worthwhile? pros/cons?
