  1. Maintenance & MINI Care
    So, I went out to change the fuel filter on my wife's 2001 mini (non s) and found it was different from all the tutorials I have seen. After some research, I found a thread that in 2001, the fuel filter is a non replaceable metal filter, and the whole unit has to be swapped. So I started...
