hi there my names Mick and i look after my Girl friend Gemmas lovely Black mini one 54 plate .
But i have a problem (well i have 2 problems now) lets starts at the beginning. I know my way around a car after owning drift cars (sx180 rx7 gen2 etc) and i now drive a bmw e46 vert.
The thing is my G/friend mini one started to have a troublesome gearbox ( the gear stick would not return to center, as in when you pop it out of first or second it returns to 3rd/4th\) . so i thought i would have a look ( how hard could it be )
so i removed the battery, the battery box and air filter box, found the linkage for the shiftier. Disconnected the linkage and the 3 bolts holding the shiftier in place and removed the shiftier. i cleaned it all up and freed it all off and refit everything back to the car. Now although the gear changes are really nice now. the stick still will not center
is this a common fault? is there a howto fix?
now my next problem is this . When i put it all back together i must have done something because now the lights wont turn off and the rear screen demist wont work and the clock has stooped working oh and the doors dont lock automatically and something else i cant remember. It must be a plug im guessing but i thought id ask befor pulling all apart again?
some one please help i really dont want to tell the mrs i broke it better
thats for all you help mick
