Brake failure! I snapped something but don't know what, please tell me what it is!

Hi,

Mini One 1.4 Petrol 2008

Just a little background, I serviced my partners car today (just new spark plugs and an oil change/filter change) and everything was working fine. I just went to pick her up from work in the car and the brake pedal went REALLY hard to press and struggles to apply the brakes at all.

When I got back I opened the bonnet to see if anything was amiss and me being a moron looks like I snapped something (no idea what). I was just wondering if anybody could tell me what it is and better yet how to replace it?







Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have to take it needs to be MOT'd tomorrow too

Thanks,

Looks like it's your brake booster connector

Depends on how desperate you are for the car.... Plenty of mini breakers about online who will be willing to sell you the connector for a fraction of...
I don't know what other predicaments you're in but if it was me I'd cancel the MOT, and find some other way to get about for the next few days.
Good luck to you

Yeah, I tried so many breakers but it's rare they have any mini's and the ones that did had the engines taken out . I can't find any mini specialists nearby, either. I did find an entire new pump that comes with a new connector which I need for £35 on ebay, so I will just take it off and re-sell the pump itself I guess.
