    Hi all, I have an R55 Cooper S, 2008 on 109,000 miles. I recently changed the Rocker/Valve cover gasket, and when starting it for the first time I noticed a knocking/ticking noise. I have driven it a few times since. Probably in total of 30 miles or so. But I’m pretty sure the noise has gotten...
  2. Second Generation MINI Tuning
    Hi Guys, apologies if this has been covered before but I am struggling to find out the details on what part I need for my car after the Timing Chain grenades itself, the head and the lower engine block.

  5. Second Generation MINI Cooper S
    Sorry for the shitty photo, I recently took off my intake manifold on my 09 Mini Cooper S and I noticed that whatever this connects to was causing a bad idle with my car. I can’t tell if it’s a vacuum line or a liquid line but it’s in between my air filter and my intake manifold. Thank you.

    Let me describe in detail how the car drives since this issue began. Start up the car and everything seems perfectly normal. Pull out of the driveway and start driving in 1st and 2nd gear, everything seems normal. Once it warms up just a little bit, and especially once I take it above 2nd gear...
  10. Second Generation MINI Cooper S
    Recently bought a 2009 MCS with 145k kilometres (90k miles) from the auctions. It has a noticeable whine from the engine especially when cold - noise reduces when warm. Diagnoses so far include isolating the water pump friction wheel drive to rule out the pump and removing the serpentine belt to...
