    We have repaired hundreds of Smart car roofs please take a look at our feedback

    Since writing this webpage Smart in their wisdom have now discontinued some of the parts required to repair these folding tops resulting in us not being able to repair every roof. All the more reason to keep you roof in the best condition yourself and getting it looked at by a professional as soon as problems occur.

    Contrary to what other websites may suggest never use a grease to lubricate your roof as in dry conditions when you have the roof open it will absorb dust and grit into the grease creating a grinding paste which will dramatically reduce the life of your folding top over time. You should remove any grease and frequently clean and then apply a silicon lubricant as it leaves no sticky residue to collect debris.
