England Mini One 2002, PSP+ Gearbox

Hi all, had my Mini One for 1 month now and love it.I'm the 2nd owner, its done 52000 miles and has a FSH.

I have 2 questions though

1. Power Steering Pump
Ther are issues with this i know; mine has a whirring sound that i have got used to. Is a certain amount of whirring normal?

2. Gearbox
Again, aware that the Midlands gearbox can be problematic. Mine doesn't like reverse when cold and first can be notchy at times. Is this normal ?

Many thanks, Adrian

The answer is yes and yes, although the gear selection issue is probably a sign that your clutch is nearing the end of it's life. The release bearing tends to wear the clutch cover fingers so that the clutch drags slightly. The steering pump is usually a noticable whirr/hum.

Thanks. That's interesting as it came with a new clutch (it was slipping when i first test drove it and itt was pointed out to me; i have the receipt for the new one)

Re the PSP, i can hear it but it doesn't seem an excessive noise, like a cat purring level of sound. Should there be no noise at all ?

Other than this it drives great. As it was a demonstrator for 8 months originally, perhaps the local BMW garage will be generous; i know they are re replacement PSP's upto 10 years old, this 11 years old and low miles, FSH.

Thanks again, Adrian
