Recall Information

This covers both the petrol turbo and the petrol MHD version although not all models had the
problematic heater shut off valve.  It looks as thought the heater shut off valve configuration
was added late 2010. The fix for the turbo version and the MHD version is different and the fix
cannot be accidentally performed to a car that doesn't require the work.

Turbo Petrol 451 (84bhp + Brabus) Coupe & Cabrio

VIN code will start:

Parts Required

Smart part number A 002 545 73 83,
Cable ties,
Sealing compound (silicone sealant).

MHD 451 (45kw & 52kw) Coupe & Cabrio

VIN code will start:

Parts Required

Heat shrink tubing
Electrical tape.

Important Information

Take the car for a drive for 10 minutes to bring up the temperature of the car so that the valve opens.
When you get back home/garage/workshop, turn the car off, turn the key to position 1 and then back off again.
This causes the heater shut off valve to open and remain open.

Disconnect the battery before doing any electrical work.
