United-Kingdom Where can I find a replacement R53 washer for the transmission plug(s)?

Tried high and low to find somewhere that does these, or even the complete unit with the washer, but can't seem to find them...

Here's the plug (drain and fill) - #12 in the diagram in the link - not sure if a washer comes with it or not.

Over here, there are a few places like this one where you can put in the part number and find things in-stock
and ready for shipping (or in a few days):

washer - Search SiteSearch 23100630776 - ECS Tuning
plug - Search SiteSearch 23101035696 - ECS Tuning

Also, usually the parts department at any MINI dealership either has it or can get it fairly quickly.

Also, if you take the plug in to a hardware or autoparts store for comparison, you can probably fine a suitable washer for that size plug.

Yeah just had a visual check of that picture for the washer and it looks like any other metric size copper washer, should be good to go if I have a hunt through the garage. Changing the oil this weekend so i'll let you know how I get on.

Thanks again!
