You need a 36 mm socket and it's on the passenger side - back side of the engine. unscrew the cap. replace the o-ring and be sure to lubricate the o-ring before installation. install new filter and screw cap back on

The oil filter is on the right rear corner of the engine as you look at it from the front of the car. It is an aluminum cap with a 36mm nut on the top.

How to change oil filter housing


I would have an oil pressure test done on your engine first to determine if you need a new oil pump. If you find this to be true do it quick before engine damage occurs. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Minis prone to water loss and overheats...dont drive till sorted...got a 59 plate cooper in workshop now...needing full engine due to overheats. Very important to bleed properly and pressure test to ensure no leake ( usually fron thermostat housing.

Reputable garage tightened filter to the point that it could NOT be removed...they had to replace the housing...free of charge. Curious to know what was the price for the housing part and how to tell when...


I asume you are reffering to an oil filter. Oil filter go on hand tight and that is sufficent to stop any leaking. It sounds as if you are reffering to a canister filter. They are tightened down to just past snug. Any tighter then that can damage the cap or after it has been run for 3000 miles lock it in place to the point you have no choice but to damage the cap in order to remove it.
