Has anybody got a B200 fault reader in north west?

Hi everyone

New to the world of Mini's and the forum! The airbag light has come on after moving the passenger seat on our Y reg (51) Mini.

I have read about these B200 fault readers but cannot find one for sale anywhere on the net or even eBay

Has anybody got one in the north west who would kindly plug their code reader into my mini if I drove over? I would happily wait for one to pop up on eBay but the cars MOT is due next month so need it sorting before then and don't fancy paying dealer prices.

Hopefully somebody can help


Just to add that there is units for sale on DX.com but the reviews are awful with people waiting upto 3 months for delivery and most not receiving items. Hopefully someone on here can help.

Thanks for that. So the B800 definitely works on the first gen mini? No mention of it on most listings. Just that it works on other BMW's.

I will wait to hear from others before buying because my car is a Y/51 plate which is the R50.
