Thanks, I can't wait to get one
Got caught in traffic today and let the car get to 108 degrees before I had a meltdown (1st stage fan didn't seem to cut in) and so put the blowers on.
I am going to have a heart attack at this rate
If it went to 108 the fan should have cut in at 105 really
Check the fuses and relays Incase also
Get someone to do a continuity check on fan to check the first stage resistor
It takes about 5 min max to check this
There is a black plug on the right hand chassis leg as you look at the car it goes to the fan. Disconnect it
There are three wire one brown and the other two blue with a red trace line
Go between the brown and one of the other wires (blue with red tracer) you should have continuity do the same on the other wire ie brown to the other blue with red tracer you should have continuity.
If you have continuity on one but not the other your fan resistor is gone and needs changing it's an easy fix
You will need one of these Mini Cooper Cooling Fan Resistor Repair Kit 03-08, 17 11 7 541 092 | eBay
