  1. Second Generation MINI Tuning
    I am getting this code and i am unsure of how to diagnose or troubleshoot what might be causing it. The car's obd has no errors but my OBD II shows this code and check engine light is on. Car runs fine.
  2. MINI Cooper S Diesel
    Hi, I have an R56 SD running the N47 engine. Since I bought the car it has had an issue with hunting in idle when it's hot. After about 18 months a garage near me has finally narrowed it down to the DPF (there were lots of other codes before but after replacing a load of parts the only one that...
  3. Welcome New Members
    Hi all Ive been wanting a mini hatch ever since I can remember and I've found the one I want - being on a lowish budget I'm happy to settle for something and then maybe upgrade in a few years when I'm more financially stable. Anyway, about the car; 2007, mini hatch 1.6L petrol with 111,000...
  4. First Generation MINI Tuning
    Hey guys, I'm new here... So I recently bought a 2002 mini cooper s with 200k miles (maybe not the best choice but it was really clean) and It has a cylinder 1 misfire most noticeable at idle, it makes thump sound every half second or so. It doesn't rev as fast as I think it should so I also...
  5. First Generation MINI Tuning
    Does anyone have experience with the Pacesetter brand exhaust? I'm worried about the install because the pictures of the product show no hangers or hardware. The reason I'm looking at it for my R53 track car is because it's cheap but is it one of those garbage wish.com cheap items?
  6. First Generation MINI Tuning
    Hi guys, I need some special help about remaping my MCS.. The thing is that car was already tuned when it had 15% pulley installed, but I have gone with the original one and have been getting code p0107 since then and I can’t get rid of it. I assume it is because the values for map sensor were...
  7. MINI Engine & Drivetrain Tuning
    Hey I really want opinions on engine swapping my 09 R56 mini One to a Cooper S engine and if anyone has some good contacts to do it. Currently I have just had a few major issues occur with the car and had these fixed swiftly, mostly to do with it being such a cheap engine which is struggling...
  8. Second Generation MINI Cooper
    I have a 09 mini Cooper r56 non turbo. The starter is fried. I was able to remove it off the engine, but I can't get the sucker out the top or bottom. Is there a trick I'm not seeing?? I really don't want to have to mess with the intake manifold and fuel rail. Any help would be greatly...
  9. MINI Faults & Fixes
    I can't figure out whats with my car. It runs really rough. (Idle and in general) Keep on getting codes for cylinder 2 and 4 misfire. We've already changed out the spark plugs and the fuel injectors and it still runs like crap. And it spits out crap in the back. I've ran out of ideas on what it...
  10. Second Generation Interior & Ice
    Help! Got a code p0303 driving to work this morning. Just went to remove the coil packs to swap with cylinder 4 for a test of them and oil in there. Checked all of them and all the same. How bad is it? Amd how much is it going to cost me? I should add this is a 2007 r56 cooper s with about 97k...
  11. MINI Countryman
    Hi, I have a 2011 mini cooper countryman all 4 s. Half engine and engine light are continually on and engine misfires prominent. I changed my plugs, injectors, swapped coils (no difference and misfire didn't follow one), and changed the low-pressure fuel pump. The problem was still there. I got...

  13. First Generation Faults & Fixes
    I'll keep this as short and sweet as possible. I recently purchased a used 2006 MCS (R53) with the knowledge that the keyfob wasn't working. (It uses the old mechanical key I'll attach an image below) For a day the car started right up with no issues. I decided to try and replace the key...

    Hello! I am currently overhauling a great deal of my R56 mini cooper s. This list includes -headlights -clutch -flywheel -most of the subframes components (bushes, shocks kinda thing) -timing chain -head gasket (probably...) -oil filter/cooling assembly and finally the turbo! Basically the...
  16. Maintenance & MINI Care
    Hey Guys, I am currently changing the Rear Brake Rotors on my 2003 Mini R53 and have come across a small issue. When I rattled the one torx bolt holding the Rotor onto the Wheel hub (I also changed the Hub) I noticed that when i give it a little shake it wobbles back and forth. Is this...
  17. MINI Cooper Diesel
    My father attempted to replace the O ring on one of the fuel injectors on my Mini Cooper D as it was leaking fuel. He used WD40 to try and lubricate the injector as it had never been removed before and was therefore extremely stiff. After several attempts at this, he still couldn’t remove the...

    Hi all, I am currently trying to remove an exterior boot handle trim on a 2003 Cooper S R53. I have gotten the screws out but i have come across a wire that doesn't appear to have a release mechanism and i can't find any videos online for this and i don't want to accidentally break it. can...
  19. MINI Faults & Fixes
    Hi all, I'm new to the site and have joined in desperation. I unlocked the car at the weekend which set the alarm off having not yet opened the doors, tried to stop it with the key which didn't work, then put the key in the ignition and started the car which didn't stop it either. I then...
