How to Top Up Water on a Smart Car

If your Smart car's water coolant tank is not kept adequately filled, you run the risk of your engine overheating and the very real possibility of a costly garage bill and some time driving a rental. You can't just fill the tank with normal water from a tap. These cars require a special coolant.


STEP 1 - Pull back the carpet on the bottom of the trunk to reveal the engine hatch.

STEP 2 - Take the cap off the water cooler thank and and pour in your coolant. There's a mark on the side of the water tank designating the maximum amount of coolant you should pour in.

STEP 3 - Replace the cap, engine hatch and carpet.


STEP 1 - Remove the plastic grille below the front windscreen on the right hand side of your car.

STEP 2 - Push the tab at the top of the unit and pull it out to reveal the coolant tank.

STEP 3 - Remove the cap from the tank and fill it with coolant to just below the plastic indent toward the top.
