"Timing, scheiming, it's just a piss poor design and is one of the most frustrating annoyances about the smart.  Hopefully it has been fixed on the newer cars?  "

Sunshade fastening?

After only 5+ years in the Houston heat, one side of my sunshade seems to be separating from the roof.  Of the five screws, only two seem to be holding.  The other three are still there leading me to believe the screws go through the sunshade frame and into an anchor which is glued to the sunroof.  Is this correct?  And if the little buggers are no longer sticking to the sunroof, what is the solution?  Gorilla Glue??See More

OK, obviously the spark plug socket and extension must be the wrong size as I just could not get enough leverage on one of the little devils so changed only 2 of 3 of them back at 30k miles.  Now approaching 60k miles I'm thinking I should complete the job, yet this time with the proper size equipment.Any insight on the size of socket and extension??  Sources?THANKS for any insight.  Mr. Bean will be pleased.See More
