@  steveyfrac : (21 September 2014 - 09:21 PM) Fair enough. :D
@  dmoonen : (21 September 2014 - 07:26 PM) Agreed Stevey but something has to pay for modifying, fixing and towing the smarts :P
@  dmoonen : (21 September 2014 - 07:23 PM) Why not buy another one but smaller and make it lower :P
@  dmoonen : (21 September 2014 - 07:23 PM) Haha yeah wanted another one for towing. My other one (lifted crew cab long bed 32ft long) doesn't fit in the garage.
@  steveyfrac : (21 September 2014 - 07:15 PM) Odd choice for a Smart enthusiast... :D

@  marchanna : (20 September 2014 - 04:37 AM) random?
@  you-are : (19 September 2014 - 09:17 PM) turbo
@  marchanna : (19 September 2014 - 07:07 PM) fair enough
@  FlossyTheSmart : (19 September 2014 - 07:02 PM) It's certainly not concerning enough to put any man-hours into it.
@  marchanna : (19 September 2014 - 07:01 PM) True, but if the moderator didn't approve it then it would be deleted and the space would be reclaimed. The issue of bandwidth however still remains, and I don't know if that is an issue or not.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (19 September 2014 - 06:56 PM) If you needed moderator approval, the image would still have to be uploaded and the space would still be taken up ;)  But we're not really that close to the limit anyway.  The inability to mass upload a huge number of pictures all at once though is naturally slowing the rate at which we fill up though.
@  marchanna : (19 September 2014 - 06:53 PM) Maybe for the time being having a moderator approval for all uploaded images to ensure space isn't exceeded.

The other day, by the looks of it, an air filter fell out onto my feet? Does anyone have any idea if it is the cabin air filter or what it is? Also if it is important or how I can put it back? I looked but can't see where it goes? :o

If you look behind the pedals to the right there's a slot with a cover on it for the cabin air filter, open the cover and slide it back in.Hope this helps!

Thank you both so much! It went right back in place - easy when you know what you're doing. ;)

Wow, it's so much easier to change a 451 cabin filter than it is in a 450!

does every 450 have a cabin filter. I have to admit I have never changed mine. I think I will check it this weekend...

Many 450s came without the pollen filter, like my 2005 Pulse. I think it was an option selected by the buyer.B :sun:
