@  KurtMan : (30 September 2014 - 12:49 PM) It was in fact the PY21 bulb that was burnt, the Canadian Tire associate insisted his computer system was correct and gave me 7528 bulbs. So I will return the bulbs and educate him when I return ��
@  stickman007 : (29 September 2014 - 02:29 PM) I bought a set of triple square from Mac Tools...the only one I ever use was 8mm for the CV
@  Francesco : (29 September 2014 - 09:16 AM) Yeah, ok. Buddy brought over his wife's 2000 Beetle TDI for a detail and I wanted to adjust the doors, but the strikers and hinges both had triple square bolts.
@  dmoonen : (29 September 2014 - 09:01 AM) Had to buy a couple sets for working on my vw's, basicly bbs rims, axels and a outher parts require them including the injector pump on the ALH's. I don't think there's a single one on the smarts that I recall mostly torx, etorx and standard sockets.
@  dmoonen : (29 September 2014 - 08:59 AM) VW need them but smarts no so much
@  Francesco : (29 September 2014 - 08:41 AM) I never noticed, does the 450 use any triple-square bolts? Does the 451? The set will be handy for when I work on Dubs, but was wondering about smarts, too.
@  Francesco : (28 September 2014 - 09:38 PM) The turn signal bulb? Or the bulb that would normally go in the empty BA15s socket below the top brake lamp? The TS is PY21W or P21W, while the one in the empty socket is R5W (207), a 5 Watt bulb. Note than on Canadian 450s that socket isn't connected to any power or earth.
@  KurtMan : (28 September 2014 - 06:00 PM) Thanks guys, I forgot to say it's a 450.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (28 September 2014 - 05:37 PM) WHich is a yellow bulb, despite being behind a red lens
@  FlossyTheSmart : (28 September 2014 - 05:36 PM) Oh, missed the lower break light correction. I think that is a PY21W
@  FlossyTheSmart : (28 September 2014 - 05:32 PM) I want to say P21W - I was just changing bulbs on my cabrio yesterday and it's actually on the plastic casing what bulbs are meant to go there - that's what I remember. I'm sure Evilution will have it there somewhere too.
@  marchanna : (28 September 2014 - 03:07 PM) I'm not sure if 450's are the same
@  marchanna : (28 September 2014 - 03:07 PM) On 451 models it's a 7528
@  marchanna : (28 September 2014 - 03:03 PM) What year?
@  KurtMan : (28 September 2014 - 02:52 PM) *I should specify lower break light.
@  KurtMan : (28 September 2014 - 02:48 PM) Does anyone know what the bulb type is in the lower part of a cabrio tail light?
@  amr530711 : (27 September 2014 - 02:16 PM) it's got a hard short on the black cable running from the positive post to the rear of the car - does that connect to the starter or to the alternator? This car seems to eat alternators, and the blackout happened at roughly the same time as the alternator would kick in, just a couple of seconds after moving forward.
@  stickman007 : (27 September 2014 - 01:52 PM) Check your connection at the battery terminals? I think somebody here in the forum had the battery cable melted once...
@  amr530711 : (27 September 2014 - 11:55 AM) hey everyone! I'm having a hard time with the new search, I'm looking for information about a total electrical failure. I started the car, drove about 50 feet, it bucked, the instrument cluster went out, back on, then completely off. and now I have no electrics at all. no four way flashers, can't roll up the window, car won't lock, absolutely nothing happens when I turn the key. Not sure what words to use in the search. any help would be appreciated
@  Francesco : (27 September 2014 - 07:10 AM) And a whole set of triple square bits off Amazon for $25. SnapOn rep said they're special order, and each bit is close to $30!!!

Over the coming weeks (and months perhaps) you will begin to see some substantial forum layout changes. The BoD is discussing and agreeing on the changes ahead of time, and you can be sure we are thinking big picture and about what the end result will look like.The Marketplace and Regional Groups will be the first to see significant changes. Regional forums will be significantly merged. The Marketplace will be broken out into cars, parts and wheels/tires to help members navigate easier. We may consider moving closed topics (sold items, ended promotions) into an archival sub-forum.We will then be breaking out General Vehicle Operation, Modification and performance and How-To forums into their own group, giving both the 450 and 451 each their own direct top-level access. We are looking to do away with sub-forums here, and eliminate the confusing layers.There will be other changes considered in due course (like the front page of the site perhaps). If you have any suggestions, send a PM to one of the BoD members.President - LeadwingSecretary - smartzuukTreasurer - SameGuyWebmaster - SpeedieMember at Large (450) - Mike TMember at Large (451) - jwight We are also looking for additional moderators for selected forums - please watch for a post about that shortly.Club smart Car turns 7 in 2012... and it's time for a refresh!Cheers,Keith

Site Feedback has been moved from the bottom group up to the top group. There are no foums in the bottom group viewable by regular members - it is now used for Site Administration.The BoD is in the midst of discussing other changes which will be done one at a time, and starting soon!Cheers,Keith

In the Marketplace forums, new and regular members are restricted from replying to topics in Self-Promotion and the Member Classifieds forums.You can still use private message (PM), e-mail and phone. We are intentionally discouraging conversations from occuring in what are essentially classifieds listings.

We're nearing the point of significantly merging the regional forums from 24 down to 8 forums, with all remaining at the top level. Here's the expected list: Not neccessarily in this order: Vancouver Island The Rest of BC Southern Ontario (to be sure, I checked: Niagara to Windsor: http://soto.on.ca/ ) The Rest of Ontario The Prairies (AB/SK/MB) Eastern Canada (Quebec to Cape Spear) USA and The Rest of the World Canada Wide Events 8 forums only When important events occur, they can be pinned in each respective forum. We will moderate the forums as they are to be about events only, and/or significant discussions that are regionally specific. Selling parts, and chit-chat are a no go. Anything smart related has a forum, so those topics would get moved as required. To be sure, no old topics will be sifted through. The forum they would get merged into is their final resting place. Please PM a BoD member with any questions/concerns. Thank you! Keith

Hi,We have completed the merging of all the Regional forums.Next up: Technical ForumsAs a first step, we have moved all the Technical forums to the 'top-level' within a new group.Moderators will be tasked with cleaning up some topics leftover in three of the forums, and then we will eliminate them. There will probably be a total of seven technical forums, 3 each for the 450 and 451, and a 7th forum which catches all the leftover topics.See the pinned topic in the Technical forums for more informartion.Thanks,Keith
