Serpentine belt tool.

I'm am trying to buy one of these as I want to change my sump gasket and apparently I need one of these to slacken the belt, so I can in turn remove the air con to undo the covered sump bolt - is this correct?

The only one I can find that is reasonable is on eBay by oranje? , however it looks like a flat sheet of metal, where as all of the others have a raised horse shoe pivot point. Is this important? - it looks it. Does anyone know where I can get one from at a reasonable price? In a reasonable amount of time ?

You won't have any problems with the orranje one.

You do know a lot of the front of the car needs removing to remove the aircon pump?

Can't help with the belt tool, but here are the instructions for changing the sump gasket:
DIY (Do It Yourself) Oil Gasket Replacement for Mini Cooper S R53 (Summary) R53minicooper’s Blog
One tip, while you've got the front end dismantled, change the o-ring on the crankshaft position sensor. It can only be reached with the front in the service position and can leak a surprising amount of oil. I changed my sump gasket, but the leak persisted and I had to take the front apart again to change that o-ring.
