I have a 2013 smart. Sometimes I would go to start the car and the motor wouldnt do any thing but I would have lights ect. I disconnect the battery, wait about 2 minutes ,reconnect the battery then turn the key to number 2 postion,put car in neutral. I could hear alot of clicking sounds from the motor. Once the clicking was finish I could start the car. I thought it was the starter in which changing it did nothing different so then I was told the clutch actuator was the problem.😔 I took the clutch actuator out,opened it and found there was no grease and there was kinda like rush/caroshon in it. Cleaned it and greased the actuator according to what I saw on youtube, reinstalled the clutch actuator and now postion 1, N,R are all nutreul.😭 what did I do wrong or can any1 please help me. I thought I read before taking the actuator out to mark the bolts and put car in nutreul. I can say that when I unbolted the clutch actuator out the car it was like it was spring loaded/under pressure cause it shot out the car. Reinstalling it after we cleaned it, it was easy to install and I put it in the same postion. Atleast I think I did.
The left fender peak trim is also on and now the rear roof trim as well. The clips that hold the trim on have teeth that bite into the body seam so all were treated with a thick goop of Waxoyl before installing, to protect the metal.
