  8. First Generation Faults & Fixes
    My dash won't work unless I connect a ODBII diagnostic device. This leads me to believe there is a ground issue somewhere. I tracked grounds to a strange long terminal on the passenger side. How do I open it without breaking what looks like very fragile plastic tabs? Thank you!

    Hi All, Hopefully someone has experienced the same and can point me in the right direction. On my UK 2005 Cooper I had to change the clutch, a pig of a job but it went well. Before dropping it back onto the wheels for a test drive I thought I'd make sure the clutch was working. I turned the...
