How to Remove a Smart Car Engine

If you’re ever faced with the daunting task of removing a smart car engine, don’t panic! In this article, we’ll outline the steps you need to take in order to remove your engine without any trouble.

What You’ll Need

-A screwdriver
-A wrench
-A flathead screwdriver

-Cordless drill with a 1/2 inch bit
-High speed steel wool or a fine grit sandpaper

Step One: Locate the Engine Harness

The engine harness is located on the firewall under the hood. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws that secure it to the car. Be sure to keep track of which screws go where – you’ll need them later.

Step Two: Remove the Engine Harness Connectors

There are three connectors on the engine harness – two at the firewall and one under the hood. Use a wrench to remove the screws that secure them to the car. Again, be sure to keep track of which screws go where.

Now that the engine harness is free, you can remove it from the car. Rotate it so that it’s facing forward.
