  1. Guys, Will be changing a leaking water pump on the 2006 diesel soon. Getting the stuff I'll need.......... Which type of coolant does the diesel engine require? Preferred brand etc? I've searched on here and of course on Google, but nothing but sites pushing their products come up with google, and no definitive answers I've found on here. Thanks
  2. I'm looking for a bicycle carrier / rack for my 2006 Smart Car. Any opinions on which brand / make works well for packing a mtb? I'd be interested in a good used one if there is one laying about and no longer needed. Thanks for your thots.
  3. Sounds like sound advice LugNuts. Thank you. At a glance, all of the 1st gen ebay key fobs look exactly the same........ thus my guess that they all come from the same chinese factory. I'll look around elsewhere on the net. One would *think* that these keys are made in elsewhere in the world........say........France, perhaps, Italy or Belgium, or some place other than China. I know.....not all chinese stuff is junk, but we DO tend to import the bottom of the barrel stuff from China, even tho they can and do make better. Go figure.
  4. Thanks for your reply. I tried searching for "key fob" on here and no posts turned up. Weird. You'd think.......
  5. The lock smith I spoke to says he does.......and *thinks* he can reprogram a used key for me.
  6. Just bought a 2006 ForTwo. It came with only one key. I'm needing another. What are my "options"? .........Buying a new key fob from the the MB dealer [ Three Point Motors ] and having them program it? Cost at the end of the day? ..........Getting a used key fob from a 1998-2007 donor car and having the locksmith cut a new blank and reprogram the fob? Will this work? I can source a used key...... ............Buying a new *aftermarket* key fob and having the locksmith cut a blank and program it to my car. He said it can be done, but, he has yet to find an aftermarket key fob for the 1st gen fortwo that is of a decent quality that he is happy with. So........what / who makes a decent quality key fob for my smart car?? I'm guessing that most will be coming out of China, possibly all from the same factory......... Any real-1st hand experience / feedback with this is welcome! Please and thank you.
