mini cooper 2002 cylinder head gasket

I am currently in the process of changing the cylinder head gasket on my 2002 mini cooper.

I have done this with motorcycles before but this is the first on a car. I am following the heynes manual page 2A.9 and have completed up to part 16 in the book.

Part 16 has me remove the engine mounting bracket which I have done.

Part 17 says to remove the hydraulic mounting from the right hand inner wing, which is the bit I can't work out why it needs removing?

Anyone done this job before and did you need to remove that part?

Do you mean the oil filled engine mounting?
BMW Planet has lots of useful technical information as pdf file downloads which would also help you.

Someone must have done this job?

Did the mount need to be removed?

Thanks

I'm going by what it says in the haynes manual. I may be reading it wrong.
To me it does not look like it needs to come off.

I would say if think you can manage without removing it then dont remove it.
You will soon find out if its getting in the way, then remove it.

Ive no idea why the manual says one way or the other, I havent got an early MINI.

Well I've done the job now and the little bugger is running again. The mounting didn't need removing. Taken the the car out for a little drive in the snow and it seems o.k (I hope).

i think you can handle it without eliminating it then don't eliminate it.
You will soon discover out if its getting in the way, then eliminate it.. . . .
