SOURCE: wet passenger carpet

It's easy to deadpan that you need to offer dry shoes to people you pick up in the rain, from your description. It could be clearer where the leak is compared to the side panels, etc.

It's pretty easy to test in summer with a nice nozzle; spritz it until what goes on does not drain out, and replace that outer seal with 50-year (silicone tolerates weather and temperature variance well) caulk or whatever is appropriate. It sounds like a wire access along the guttering is open or being splashed. It also sounds like a fair idea to get the car in the air and see that the drain holes in the frame, pan and shielding are not scooping up rain instead of just clear to shed it. Sometimes a bottom coating can come off sidewise....

SOURCE: Wet rear floor

Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.

SOURCE: 2005 Mini Cooper Engine Cooling Problems

There is a problem with the thermostat gaskets. Often times they leak and allow cars to overheat. Check under your car and make sure that there is no coolant leaking. MINI has updated the gasket so if you get your car serviced at a mini dealer then your gasket will be updated. There is not a bulletin or recall for this replacement this would be at your cost.

Ait bag warning light on, plus passenger seat doesnt fold forward correctly and difficult to get back in the correct position after letting passengers into the rear. 2002 cooper. thanks


Regarding the passenger seat, to allow someone into the back seat, push the seat back lever DOWN. This will flip the back of the seat forward and allow the seat to slide forward. Simply push firmly on the seat back (no need to touch the lever) and it will return to its original position.

If you pull the seat back lever UP, you can adjust the recline angle of the seat back. Pulling the lever UP will also let you fold the seat and slide it forward, however, it will not return to its original position.

Sorry, cannot solve your airbag question.

2005 mini cooper has loud humming noise from rear when driving above 40 mph. Any suggestions on what this could be


I had a similar issue and it ended up being a broken wheel bearing. I even ended up having two, one was broken on my front passenger side, and one broken on my rear driver side. The part costs about $280.00, but could cost around $400.00 with service repair. The noise of a broken wheel bearing can sound like a humming, and over time it becomes louder. The car can be driven with a broken wheel bearing, but doing so can eventually lead to other wheel/tire maintenance. MINI's endure this commonly due to their low profile to the ground. Here is a forum on further issues experienced, including the bearing, and efforts towards recalls. http://newmini.wordpress.com/2009/02/17/mini-cooper-power-steering-failure/#comment-884

Airbags


The side curtain airbags on your MINI is a long piece that goes fro end to end on your vehicle. The dealership will NOT remove any safety equipment installed by the factory. I am guessing that your question is in regards to a child's safety in the rear of the vehicle. The airbags are designed to only extend down to cover the windows, and to stop a passengers head form striking anything that is entering your vehicle i.e.bumber/hood of another vehicle. There are no rear seat airbags in your vehicle.
