  1. hey, just found this groupe while looking for a solution to my smart issue. my wife was driving back from the cottage when after about 15 kms the car just came out of gear. engine still running. she could re-start it and shift but no clutch engagement, just revs(automatic). This happened before but solved its self after about 10 mins at the side of the road about 8 months ago and no problems since. it dose on the rare occasion not want to go into reverse but we usually just push the car back a bit with our foot . I guess that lines up the dogs(i guess i haven't seen a reverse in a smart) more closely. This time though, she tries it in reverse and it jumped back a little but then nothing. just wondering if this is the actuator motor. I just saw a vid where the motor gear broke off and jammed in the note is that the shift cable was replaced in january by mercedes(after multiple failures of new cables) and like i said has had no starting issues since. Unfortunately I'm in milton and she is 3 hours north in bf nowhere. I haven't seen it described where a car will just go into a neutral state while underway. Oh ya, the car has about 130000 kms on it and to leave the cottage we have a very steep driveway and she said there was no issue so i dont think its a worn out clutch(not sure if that is a problem with these just wanted to mention). Any insight on this would be great thanks.
