  2. Swap R60 speedo for screen

    MINI Countryman
    Hi, I've recently bought an R60 Countryman 2010 and managed to make quite a few exterior changes. Has anyone managed/tried to swap the main speedo in the R60 Countryman for one of the R60 Sat Nav screens sold in some of the higher-end countryman models of that time? Thanks Toby

I got one from Costco, but in the process of researching how to get the panel off etc to replace the battery, I discovered that the computer needs to be updated so the car changes how charging behaves for a...
  6. Countryman reverse light switch location

    MINI Countryman
    2011 Countryman S FWD. Both reverse lights are not working but the bulbs are fine. I'm pretty sure it's the reverse switch. I just need to know where it is. It should be a fairly easy replacement once I find it, I just have no idea where it is. Anyone done this?
