  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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.

  7. 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...
  8. 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
  9. 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...
