I had this problem last summer, then it went away and just returned during the nice weather.

:dk: I've got a vaneo Family 1.9 and i can remove all my rear seats for cargo apart from the twin seats behind passenger. my manual tells me it's the same procedure as the single behind driver, but i'm having no luck. Anyone out there got suggestions? :thumb:
Hi, technically not quite a merc owner yet (smartcar)
Eyeing up the Vaneo as the next motor (7 seats etc) but have yet to read a decent owner review. Most talk about poor build quality, gearbox probs etc, can anyone beg to differ??

Recently I've been getting excessive blue / grey smoke.

Smoke is prevalent when pulling off cold, increasingly smokes...
