banging noise in front

My 2008 smart has been making a thumping or banging noise in the front when I drive on a bumpy road. Almost as if a strut was broken and banging. Les Schwab looked and said it was a loose sway bar…Continue

"Probably needs the latest software update(s) - only available from a smart center; however, there could be other reasons for the problem."

banging noise in front

My 2008 smart has been making a thumping or banging noise in the front when I drive on a bumpy road. Almost as if a strut was broken and banging. Les Schwab looked and said it was a loose sway bar link. I found the part online, but my hubby cannot see anything under the car that looks like the picture. He wants to do the install himself, but we need the right part. Has anyone else had a problem with that sound or the sway bar link?  Been told it's not dangerous, but...See More

Larry Schroth replied to Leslie Davis's discussion Bulbs and fuses
"My low beams failed after 13 months, and I do very little night driving. I'm inclined to also think it's due to our increasingly "third world" road quality - lots of potholes, and the Smart rides roughly over them due to the…"

Robert Ricewasser replied to Leslie Davis's discussion Bulbs and fuses
"I would check your alternator output. The regulator may be set too high causing the bulbs to burn out prematurely. If you subject the vehicle to a lot of vibration, that could also cause bulb failure. This could be caused by driving over rough roads."

"Thanks so much for the informative reply! Sounds more complex than I can do, so I'll get one of my sons to decipher for me! Again, thanks so much. "
