    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...

    So I'm having more of this endless fun with my mini. R56 Cooper S N18 2010, has started blowing white smoke with a blue tinge out the exhaust when I rev it after it has sat idling for a few minutes, smells like burning oil more than sweet I think. Coolant level seems to be stable and...

    I bought a 2007 min copper not s in January. The valve cover looked tinkered with and it used a lot of oil so I decided to change it. After valve cover was changed the oil consumption has gone down but it started leaking instead. It leaks from the corner near the vacuum pump. It is not the...

    Hi, I'm stuck trying to figure this out. My main key fob stopped working in the ignition - accessories don't come on nor does car start, but this fob works to lock/unlock doors/hatch. Unearthed my secondary key (which had never been used in the car) - it starts the car but doesn't lock/unlock...

  9. Second Generation Interior & Ice
    Hi, hardwiring a dash cam here and done lots of research on the r56 fuse box but still stuck. I am aware that the mini has a “phantom fuse box” so the fuses still have 12v even without key in slot for about 30-60 mins after car is locked. As soon as you unlock the car they become active again...

    I have a 2010 R56 S coupe, i'm debating whether I should get a OEM Mini Cooper roof rack base to mount my mountain bike on top, or if I should buy a third party rack, do the third party ones fit the car? Or does it have to be an OEM roof rack?

    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...
