Hi

Just got an old Mini one 2003 to replace a company car.
Passed its MOT yesterday after needing new indicator stalk a bottom Ball Joint, front caliper and rear high line brake light.

Next problem to solve is radio not picking up any stations and needing to put vehicle into reverse when switched off to kill engine !! looking back on the old MOTs it mentions ignition switch faulty. Do they have a known problem.

Yes. Ignition switch connectors on 2003 Minis can fail. Have a search on YouTube.

Well that's the gear Knob and radio aerial replaced.

Ended up with a stick on one in the windscreen also took the opportunity to fit my dash cam while the trim was off.

Next job is solving the having to enter reverse to kill the motor problem.
