Mini Cooper Oil and Filter Service with EGR Blank

Hi

I have just serviced my Mini Cooper D R56 57 plate.

Just acquired from a garage in Scotland and never sure if their 'oil service' is done, and if so correctly. After dropping the oil, no idea but there is a new air filter...however,

I thought it might be useful to attach photos for those that don't or haven't done this yet.

As you can see. The first thing is a new turbo seal required. Around 12 I've heard so will get that ordered. (Citroen Part)

The parts I bought from my local motor parts. All Mahle equipment which is good enough for me. As it happens, I've kept the air filter as there is a new one in it seems.

Fuel filter in place. You have to remove the air box to get to this. All just pulls out. As it happens there are some broken plastic pins as expected and need replacing. The filter has a clip on the lhs which just presses to lift out. There is an electrical socket which lifts off and fuel pipes which unclip also. All in all, 30 seconds. It's heavy from the fuel still in place.

Again just inclips and then slides back. This is the heater I believe and transfers across to the new filter. Again push fit.

Now for the EGR. I want to put a blank plate in this as well as a DPF delete over the weekend. Once done, I'll have it remapped with these taken out.

This last picture is the fuel filter plate which removed gives you better access to the EGR setup.

In fairness this was cleaned with a quick hoover...no fluids used and it's clean yes? So question is, what is it like in the inlet? I don't know, it's being blocked either way. Given how delicate the HDI engine is with oil contamination, I'm definitely not risking it. The one thing that the EGR system is good for is heating your engine up quicker, but not point having a broken hot engine

So here is the plate I bought off eBay for 4. Steel option, not alu and nicely finished. Very smooth.

Now here is the oil filter in a stupid place tbh. Little restrictive but not impossible. 27mm from memory. The filter just pulls out of the cap once free. It can be a little stiff but it comes off.

Lastly just a picture of the turbo inner. Some black on the blades, but looks clean enough.

Anyhow, the pollen filter to be fitted in the passenger cabin, which I'll do later and DPF delete I'll show probably over the weekend.

To note, the panel under the engine, there are I think 8 philips screws. It's a nice easy panel to remove.

The oil, around 3.7 litre was local purchase c3 low ash fully synthetic 5w30 oil.

So the EGR plate.

Yes the light has come on and yes the power is reduced, but I don't think that is limp home mode as it's quick enough at the moment. As said, once I do the DPF delete (because the light does come on sometimes when starting, and then goes) then I'll go for a remap to disable both.

To note the DPF will be gutted and replaced again as it's now an MOT failure to remove completely the DPF.
