Tip & How-To about Mini Cooper
Can you hear water sloshing around whenever you take a corner in your mini?
A common problem in the new mini is dirt and grime build up clogging the drain holes in the hatchback door (and the boot door on the convertible)
It is quite simple to clean these plugged drain holes. They are rectangle shape about 1/8 by 1/4 inch and there are two of them along the bottom of the door just on the edge of the seam. Clean out using a soft plastic tool. I use a discarded tie-wrap or even a few stiff broom bristles. Don't use wire as it could scratch paint and promote corrosion.
Keep these drain holes clean and prolong the life of your mini.
I feel stupid knowing it took me a week to figure out where that splashing water sound was coming from!
