    Hi gang I have just bought a smart car with a car a tow a frame fitted, did the deal with a private seller, then he just happened to mention the brake system is not connected as he never felt it was needed:Eeek:, Now while I dont have a problem with this from a purchase point of veiw, it cant be that hard to sort, can it?

    The lad says he has no instructions for the system.

    My question is 2 fold where do you drill the bulk head to thread the cable in to the car, and how does it connect to the brake pedal, I am told all the parts are with the car and have seen a bag of bits, the cable is fitted to the front of the car already.

    does anyone have a smart with this system? or instruction? photos would be good.

    I am hopefully collecting the car on thursday afternoon, so will be able to have a closer look then.


    any help gratefully recived.

    The brake cable is connected to the brake pedal - you need to drill a hole for it to connect. There should also be a bungy that goes on the brake pedal to pull it back. will upload photo shortly. If your on skype, you can call me - details on my profile page
