  1. Second Generation MINI Cooper
    Hi! I recently got a MINI-N 2008 and I've found that it's really hard to find instructions or tutorials on this specific model online. It has no menu button, but it does have a Bluetooth option (the steering wheel has a call & pick up button), which is really hard to figure out. The car is...
  2. Second Generation MINI Cooper S
    Hello! Im getting ready to replace headgasket on a mini i bought to fix. Just wanted an idea of what to expect & if anyone has successfully done this. Im aware of the special tools needed but does it really take 15hrs ?
  3. MINI Faults & Fixes
    I have an odd issue with my mini R56 2008 where after a long drive and sat idling, a red oil pressure light shows. This will then instantly go if any revs are added. It then won't show up again until idling next i.e sat at a traffic light. I have had no engine management light show up to...
  4. Maintenance & MINI Care
    Hey everyone. Hope all is well. I recently purchased a 2008 Mini Cooper S. I’m struggling to find a compatible OBD scanner that isn’t £200-£300 here in the uk. There’s a few Bluetooth scanners that say that they’re compatible but there’s been mixed reviews. I’m expecting the engine light to come...
  5. Second Generation Interior & Ice
    I have an 2008 mini one which had no working air con when I bought it. Late last summer I got it recharged at a garage and the air conditioning worked great. I didn't use it all winter and now it's stopped working again. I assumed it may have leaked the gas again so I connected an old home...
  6. MINI Cooper Diesel
    Hi there, My Mini Cooper D makes this noise when the car is idle and also when the gas pedal is pressed when driving. I've been told it's a common design fault in diesel Mini Cooper engines but was just wondering if anyone else has had this issue? If so, were you able to find a solution...
  7. MINI Cooper Diesel
    Hi there, My Dad recently installed a new gearknob on my R56 Mini Cooper D by removing the silver plastic ring which holds the leather gaitor in place. In his wisdom he has snapped the clips on the ring when trying to reapply the trim after installing the gearknob. In fairness, he has offered...
  8. Maintenance & MINI Care
    Hello, so I recently bought some of this for my MINI COOPER D and was wondering if anyone else has used it before in their diesel minis? My reason for asking is that the DPF warning light flashes up every time I start the engine but goes out when driving. So I bought some of this to see if it...
  9. MINI Faults & Fixes
    Hi, I have a 2008 Mini Clubman with a steering issue. When the wheel is at the 12 o'clock position and when I turn it left it just clicks once and the sound is coming from just behind the wheel itself. The other issue is I can feel the steering slide or slip a bit if I was to turn a corner...

  11. Maintenance & MINI Care
    Hi all! So every time it rains my car loves to make a high pitched squeal, allerting all of the neighbours (and everyone in a 30 mile radius tbh) of its presence. It usually sticks around for about 15mins before gradually dropping off as the moisture evaporates off the belt. Now this has been...
  12. MINI Interior & ICE
    Just bought a 2008 Clubman Auto and am looking to upgrade the head unit to a touch screen with reversing camera. Any tips on where to shop (preferably in Australia) would be greatly appreciated
  13. Second Generation MINI Cooper S
    Hello! First time posting a question, but I can't seem to find any answers from Dr. Google. I have a 2008 Mini Cooper S. Recently, the steering column started locking up on left turns. The attached photo shows the warning light that I get when that happens. I took it to the dealer and they...
