Hi all
After much todo with an 2005 cooper convertible cooling system loss. (which I will update when and if the loss is still none over the next 2 weeks)
I noticed that there is NO cooling fan on the power steering pump, did/should all 1st Gen minis have one?
Replies would be great full.:puzzled

Think it was only the R53s (Cooper S) have the fan on the PSP, not the R50s - Ones and Coopers. Depending where in the world you are - as in how hot a climate - TBH you don't really need it. In the UK mine, on an R53 Cooper S, was siezed for at least 2 years. Which never caused any issues. Didn't notice. Eventually swapped for an unsized used one. I believe it is triggered by the high speed fan sensor - which on my car hardly ever comes on.

Your coolant loss. Are you suffering temperature problems?

Hi
Thanks for the replies. With regards to the fan there appears to be 2 studs were the fan should be but don’t actually look like anything has been fitted for a number of years, so may not have had one originally I guess, especially if they have not always been fitted to all models. Thanks again for that info.

Yes it did have water loss but no visible overheating issue noted. And no signs of obviously leakage after a run.
