2011 mini clubman diesel n47
Hi Alan here and I’m new to mini’s and this forum , I’m from Telford, Shropshire. Uk , I have purchased this mini as a fix up and maybe to replace my ageing golf , as for the mini I’m unsure of the model number but engine is 1.6 Bmw unit which I think is the n47. Now for the issues, cam chain rattled on start up for a few seconds but engine has done 90,000 miles , DPF I think maybe shot as previous owner has had it professionally cleaned although on the car and I have a receipt to prove glow plugs have errors and it has had a new genuine control unit for said plugs , boost pressure sensor, DPF sensor, and it has had mice in there somewhere as the sound proof bonnet liner has been half eaten even the aluminium heat shield part😳, now I think I’m going to pull the engine out and do a decent overhaul on it . What’s your thoughts on the DPF , what should I do with it or what you think I could get away with doing , maybe the egr too . Thanks in advance .
