Premium Mod 450 Speedo LCD Invert450 Fortwo

Word of warning. Unlike the 451 fortwo and Roadster, the 450 fortwo LCD cannot be disconnected from the speedo. If you screw this up, you'll need a new speedo, not just a new LCD. Disassemble the speedo. Zoom your eyes right in on the front of the LCD panel, you feel...

Normal Mod 450 Stalk Removal450 Fortwo

Snapped the stalk? replacing a faulty light stalk, adding cruise control?

Premium Mod 450 Starter Motor Fix450 Fortwo

This is the starter motor removed from the car. Actually removing it is a terrible job. Annoyingly, it's rarely the starter motor that fails so removing it is usually unnecessary. So, if you go to start the car and you only hear a click from the fuse box, you may have...

Premium Mod 450 Steering Column Change450 Fortwo

Why Would I Change The Steering Column? If you are looking to change the steering column, it is probably down to 1 of 2 things. The steering has become incredibly stiff and lubricating the universal joints didn't work, or, (far less likely) that you are fitting a...

Premium Mod 450 Steering Rod Ball Joint450 Fortwo

Arrowed below is the ball joint for the steering arm.  It is worth noting that this part is the same part used for the hub ball joint lower down. Steer the wheel towards you and you'll see it better. It's clamped in the hub carrier... ...and held in with 2 Torx 50...

Premium Mod 450 Suspension Change Front450 Fortwo

One of the new comon problems is breaking springs and previous attempts by some people at removing the suspension lead to nuts being drilled out and the entire thing taking a day to complete. Posted 26th July 2007.

Normal Mod 450 Thermostat Valve Change450 Fortwo452 Roadster

What Are The Symptoms Of A Failed Thermostatic Valve? The thermostatic valve starts closed which only allows the the coolant to circulate around the engine. As the engine temperature increases, the coolant temperature also increases. Eventually, the thermostatic valve...

Normal Mod 450 Timing Chain Change450 Fortwo

Why Would We Need To? A phenomenon incorrectly called "chain stretch" is the main reason for requiring a new chain fitting. The thickness of the slide rail, the maximum movement of the chain tensioner and an excessive lengthening of the chain eventually causes issues....

Premium Mod 450 Timing Chain Cover Removal450 Fortwo

I did this with the engine removed. If you want to try it with the engine still in the car, you go for it you nutcase. You'll hate yourself by the end of it but you will have gained the dexterity to wallpaper your hallway through the letterbox. Remove the belts. See...

Normal Mod 450 Timing Chain Guide Removal450 Fortwo

Once you've removed the cylinder head, you'll notice the main chain guide comes with it and is captive within the head. Since you are this far into the engine, you may as well fit new guides, tensioner and chains. To remove the main chain guide, you need to remove...

Normal Mod 450 Underseat Drawer450 Fortwo

The underseat drawer is a nice easy addition that offers extra storage that can be locked.

Normal Mod 450 Undertray Lowering450 Fortwo
