Driving to France and Spain next w/end and went to check out the toolkit which according to the manual should be beneath the floor mat on the Cooper S but there's nothing there and nor can I see how a toolkit would fit in there. The wheel-changing set is in the luggage compartment but there's no toolkit that I can find. Can anyone throw any light on this - did you have a toolkit - if so where is it please? Maybe I'm missing something.....
As far as I can see the Cooper has a combined wheel-changing set and toolkit but the S, Convertible and MINI ONE Diesel should have two separate sets. I'll look again beside the battery later as suggested - thanks
On my 2006 MCS R52 the toolkit is in a small foam tray about the size of an 8 track and contains a towing eye, screwdriver, spanner and a metal coil thing. The Allen key is not there and the locking wheel nut key isn't there.
Also I did muse as to why I have a jack when I have no spare wheel, space saver wheel or compressed and gunk kit...
Ive got a 2012 JCW, with run flats, that has all the necessary for wheel changing and a towing eye and thats all.
The thing with the handbook is its written for every option, it does say that all items in the handbook may or may not apply to your version as its market dependent.
By the term "tool kit" dont expect a full socket set and spanners as thats what some folk assume it means.
