I also have this clicking on my Apr 04 MCS, thought this problem was solved long ago. Questions:
1 Do all MCS's suffer from this
2 Is it worthwile bothering to get it fixed

It is slightly irritating, especially because the steering feel is so good.

The last time I was at the shop my steering colum got replaced. That’s not what I was there for but they did it along with some other stuff I was planning on. They say it was making a clicking sound. I had heard it before but paid it no attention. It’s gone now.

Thanks bluesmini, I will have them look at it during a scheduled service. No sense in taking an extra trip to the dealer just for this. The problem should have been sorted out by now, it was there since I received my MCS.

I had the click on my 04 MCS, too. It was especially prevalant after the car was parked in the sun and heated up a bit. Told the dealer at scheduled maintainence and they changed out the steering column, no worries.

I have not seen a recall notice on this, but it must be semi-endemic. I wonder of the 2005s will have a scattering of the same problem?

Where's this clic to be heard/found? I hear all kinds of little clacks and such after the car is started and begins to warm.

Had the same click/notchy feeling with my Dec 04 MCS, also had the prob with the 02 Cooper.
Anyway, the cars been in today to have some sort of clip that has something to do with the airbag replaced.
Problem sorted no more clicks.
Car was only in 3hrs, had a 04 Cooper for a courtesy car , god did it feel lifeless and harsh, compared to the MCS.

My '04 MCS (9/2003 build) with 13K miles has had ZERO problems with the steering system. Tight as a drum!.

Our '02 Cooper CVT (August 2002 build) suffered from the "clunk" from the get go and it received a new revised upper and lower steering column assembly. That was over 1 year ago and 15K miles after the noise has not returned and it has been PERFECT.

I've got exactly the same click on my MINI One... but it doesn't happen all the time so will be pointless taking it to the dealers, they'll only say they can't hear it.

I'm having trouble getting my a-pillar sorted, booked in again on Wednesday for the 5th time. I'm sure these people drive around with ear plugs in!!

Richard.
