Thinking about looking at a 2003 One D with a seized engine (rad failed). Never been near a new shape Mini, so just wondering how difficult it is to remove the engine? Any special tools required?
I have the garage, tools and experience, just not sure whether I have the enthusiasm/time if it's a pig of a job.
Don't know yet how much damage the engine might have, I see it's a Toyota engine, if it's worth rebuilding, are parts readily available? Any good Mini spares suppliers anyone can suggest?
Thanks for any replies.
