  1. Second Generation Faults & Fixes
    The key fobs were dead when I got the car so I replaced the rechargeable batteries. All was well for a couple of weeks but they died again. I know the batteries were in good condition and I soldered them in myself. I have replaced them again and the same has happened, as expected. I regularly do...

    Hi all, I'm new here so apologies if this isn't in the right forum! I have a problem with my girlfriend's 2005 R52 Cooper Convertible where the passenger's windows (both front and rear) won't go back up. This has happened after the alternator recently failed and started charging the battery...

    Hey everyone, with a heavy heart my wife and I are having to consider the possibility that we need to let our van go. The timing chain went at the back end of last year, and I haven't been able to scrape together the cash to get it sorted. I've looked at the options for refurb engines, but with...

    Afternoon all, Hopefully a quick and simple one - but I'm struggling to find the relevant information online and hoping you can help! We're currently enjoying a 2017 Countryman, which we bought Used from a mini dealer - at the time it didn't come with a floor panel for the boot - so we are...
  10. First Generation Faults & Fixes
    I’ve decided to sell my Mini Cooper with electric sunroof. Is this worth selling for parts/scrap instead of fixing the ABS myself. Has a number of other gremlins due to age. Who would be interested in buying in this condition?

  12. First Generation Faults & Fixes
    Hi all, new here so uncertain if i'm posting this in the right place - I bought my 2001 Mini Cooper in 2018, it was at around 115000 miles when bought and there was a slight glitch in the display but nothing too drastic and was still readable. The mileage display since has gotten progressively...
  13. First Generation Faults & Fixes
    Hi all, I know there have been several threads on this before but it seems we've tried everything and hit a dead end. The roof on my 06 R52 Cooper S won't go down - the switches in the boot are pressed and I know the motor works from testing it but the switch does nothing when pressed, not even...

    Hello, I have just purchased a '15 F56 1.5T 3 cyl with a manual trasmission. Looking to add more power I came across this 2 options: Burger Motorsports JB4 and Dinan's dinantronics elite. I really don't know which is a better option. Also it's important to have into consideration that in the...

  19. First Generation MINI Cooper
    Hi guys, I’ve got an 04 Cooper with a slight issue, if you floor it from cruising the revs will climb as usual until about 3200 rpm hold there for a couple of seconds and then carry on climbing as usual. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks

    My daughters mini (2011 R56 cooper) has been reading -40 outside air temperature, we are not sure when it started, it might have been there since she bought it. Anyway she got a replacement and brought it round to me so I could help her. Got the bumber off but where the sensor should be at the...
