  1. Hi guys, I am new in this club so I would first like to say Hi! To briefly describe the issue: my wife bought a Smart Forfour W454 2005 model with softouch+ gearbox which runs fine, except that does not auto crawls(does not move when I release break pedal) and sometimes does not engage R (it displays 0 on the screen). I was at a local shop, the guy scanned it with a MB Star, no errors on clutch module and the output was this like this(also please see the attached screenshot): The mechanic said that the the values are not ok and that indicates that the clutch is worn badly. Do you think he is right? The values are that bad? And sorry for posting here but I could not find a 454 section. Thank you in advance! Sorin
  2. Hello all, I am actually in the US, right across from Windsor, ON. There are not that many smarts around here, certainly it seems that you have more! I now own two smart cas, both are009 year 451 Passion coupes. The first I got for $1.00 from a man who wanted to punish his son for abusing the car and constantly running out of gas. I have drained and cleaned the tank, replaced the oil, battery, plugs and she starts well! What I need to do: 1. Replace the exhaust: it was the standard one and I am looking for a replacement, new or used. These have side exhaust pipes 2. Check over brakes and brake systems 3. Replace the coolant and gearbox fluid, would love recommendations 4. The car is all black and I need a driver's side black fender, which are color-impregnated, not painted per se. 5. I also want to add a trailer hitch as a way to add a spare tire carrier on the back. I am a retired diesel mechanic and have started getting documentation. I worked for MB and Chrysler and have written service manuals as well. I just need info and some make this a running car without any issues. It looks so nice that I may not drive it until April! The second car has been more seriously damaged since the timing belt broke, with unknown damage. That will require some engine surgery! or a transplant. I would also like to get a new or used STAR machine a real on, if possible. Can send money to Canada via bank or PayPal. Your assistance appreciated. I speak French as well as English so I can help you folks perhaps in some way as well. strelnik. PS- I also own Citroen cars: 1937 Traction, 1973 DS21, 1964 2CV!
