New Owner - 2013/14 R58 Coupe JCW- 3 Issues i'm having
Hello and good afternoon fellow Mini enthusiasts.
A couple of weeks ago i finally made the decision to purchase my first Mini, a 2013/14 JCW Coupe (2 seats, R58). Having a blast with the engine, having upgraded from a slow 120hp Hyundai.
I have encountered three issues that i've still been unable to fix, and i'd really like to avoid going to a certified repair shop because i don't think it's under warranty and i don't have the spare cash to pay for the fix. They are:
First one: The back part of the driver seat feels a bit loose, i can notice it the most when i brake, i feel a little sway to the front. I've noticed some people reporting the same, so is it a known defect?
Second one: Whenever i turn the car on, the fog lights flash a few times (which i also think it's a regular fuse check), but then i get the warnings on my screen saying the Front Left Fog Light and the Front Right Fog Light are defective. When i turn them on, they turn on just fine, and there's no flashing or anything. Both Fog Lights, Low Beams, the small yellow ones on the upper part of the Fog Lights, the High Beams and the side lights are working just fine. Is there a way to reset or remove the warnings?
Last one, and the one that's been annoying me the most. I hear a really annoying squeak coming from what seems to be right behind the driver seat, like a plastic on plastic noise coming when i hit small bumps on the road, but it feels like it's somewhere near the window/seatbelt, and not the suspension/steering bushings. It really feels like it's something right under the window, but i'm just not able to pinpoint it. I could probably record a video if needed.
I appreciate any insight anyone would be willing to give, just wanna get these little bumps off of my head and enjoy my ride.
