Parts for 450 in the States

7 posts in this topic

Anyone know if parts for a 450 (06 Pulse) are obtainable in the US? How interchangeable are 08 US parts with an 06? Of course the engines are different, what about brake pad, filters, etc? Thanks

If you haven't figured it out yet, U.S. dealers are no help in looking up parts. You need to get the EPC, look up the Smart part number, Google that, and hopefully find the Mercedes style part number which you can order from a U.S. Smart dealer. Thats how I ordered an antenna base. If that doesn't work and you need 450 specific parts you will have to order from a Canadian dealer which is no big deal. I was able to order Mann and Hengst filters from a local import parts store. You have to find the part numbers because none of their catalogs have Smarts. Check Mann and Hengst and Diesel fuel filter

Mercedes style part number use no longer works for getting pre 2008 smart parts at a US mercedes dealer. Sometimes you can use 451 parts (a lot start with A 451 although some do start with A 450) in the 450s. I believe i've compiled a list here in this forum somewhere. I'll try to find it.

In the mean time, you can call G&K Auto in California to see if they have any parts. Also try some of the vendors listed in this forum. I have had great success with parts from these vendors:

[*]http://shop.flyingtiger.ca

[*]http://parts4smarts.ca

[*]http://shop.wellsmart.co.uk

[*]http://smart-parts-direct.com

SmartMadness.com (based out of California) is starting to carry some 450 parts as well.

UPDATE: ok I can't find where that list is in this forum. Maybe I meant to create and haven't yet. So for now, you have two options:

[*]PDF of 450 part numbers - Has 451 parts listed where the 451 part works for the 450. I can't take create for the great work of other members here in this forum. I just compiled it into a spreadsheet style list.

[*]451 parts that fit the 450 - a forum post I've compiled on SCoA that has pictures and part numbers of 451 parts that I have personally verified fit my 450s. All of them are fitted to my 450s.

Get ahold of smartie yank - he has two 450's including a CDi and lives in Washington State - doesn't check in too often so send a pm - does all his own work so has a good idea were to get parts.Three Point Motors here in Victoria were sending stuff south but I think they got told not to by head office - FastEddy is good too - he has helped out a lot of US 450 owners.There was a Zap dealer in Bellevue Wa. as well that stocked some parts for the 450.Cheers,Cameron

I have just learned of a company in Georgia in the US that can get 450 parts as well. Their name is PGR. I'll try to get contact information
