  1. MINI Interior & ICE
    Mini Cooper Dashboard Sound When Braking or Accelerating This is the noise my Mini Cooper makes when breaking or accelerating at 6-7 seconds into the video. It sounds like a creak or as though plastic is rubbing on plastic. Anyone with any ideas of where it is coming from please let me know as...
  2. Second Generation Interior & Ice
    Has anyone else experienced a dash rattle when coming to a stop? It seems to radiate from the vent in the dash directly above the centre speedo. I can't pin point it and have removed the surround of the speedo and tried spraying silicone on anything that i can see but still the noise persists...
  3. General Discussion
    Hi all. I got a 2013 R56 JCW N18 engine at roughly 82k miles. I got a rattle on my car for a while but its getting worse now to the point where I can hear it in the cabin. No difference in performance but everyone looks at the car for the wrong reasons! 😂 Anyways. I checked the turbo...

    I have been trying to find some answers related to this rattling noise from my N14 engine. This is a GEN 2 engine with a Timing Chain Noise or something within the timing components. I'd like to get some opinions related to this. Already have had the RECALL timing chain and tensioner...
  5. Second Generation Faults & Fixes
    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...
  6. MINI Countryman
    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and I own a 2012 Cooper Countryman S with the 184hp N18B16A engine since 2018. Recently the engine has developed a rattle that occurs between 2000 and 3000 rpm while the engine is cold. It does not occur when the engine is warmed up though. I heard that there are...

    If anyone can help that would be great, on cold start I get a short rattle that I believe to be the camshaft not getting the required oil. I've had the chain replaced so it cannot be that, only thing I can think of is VANOS solenoid seal gone bad. I've just ordered a new solenoid as they're...
  8. MINI Engine & Drivetrain Tuning
    Hey I have been hearing a rattle only when at idle, as soon as some revs are put on it goes away. If I very carefully and slowly lift foot off accelerator too it goes away at idle some of the time. I only hear it when revs are under 1000 roughly any higher and it is gone. It seems to only appear...
  9. Second Generation MINI Cooper S
    I just got a 2011 Mini S it ran great for about a month and suddenly I keep getting an odd “rattle almost metallic” noise and suddenly the car will put its self into limp mode “1/2 engine light” I have a check engine light and my code reader says it’s the down 02 sensor needing replaced. I have...
  10. Second Generation MINI One
    Hi. I decided that I want to buy a second generation Mini, however I've discovered that the early Petrol models had terrible timing chain issues causing what is now known as death rattle. All of the issues I found online were with the 1.6 Petrol Minis, mainly the Mini Cooper S. However, since...
