Passenger Compartment fill with exhaust gasses

4 posts in this topic

I have a 2005 Smart CDI.  Has anyone ran into the passenger compartment filling up with exhaust gasses when a widow is cracked or fully opened?

You either have a broken or worn out gasket between engine compartment lid to body , or you have a leak in the rear window or hatch seal....

OR you haven't installed the engine compartment lid correctly..

Ok, that gives me a good starting point, as far as I know the seals are all original, so 16 year old seals.

What I do is check seals and also make 100% sure lid is correctly placed when tightening it down, then I install carpeting well as in back under side moulding. Then I use a thick black beach towel as a way to make the back look nice, add some added insulation from engine heat during summer months, and also as a ground blanket if I ever need to check under vehicle and it also reduces any extra engine sounds.....Dollar store towel or an old house towel the wife won't miss...lol.
