One method describes just turning the key to position 2 and giving it about 30 seconds and that it will reset on its own. A manual method is described here:

SOURCE: CVT transmission fluid mini cooper 04 automatic

The manual has a mis print, according to MINI the correct oil to use is ESSO CVT Z2L 799 fluid and there are no other manufacturers that use it so sorry but you will have to buy it from the main dealer.

SOURCE: How do I change a running light in a 2006 Mini cooper?

I am assuming it is the same as the one on my 2004.

First, the hole into which you must stick your hand is too small for many people. Find somebody with a small hand or use a pair of padded pliers GENTLY. I have a pair of angled instrumentation pliers which are meant for this kind of work.

The instructions in your book probably say to turn the bulb holder to the left. But, you wonder, which way is left? Since you are standing at the front bumper facing the car, left means clockwise. In other words, the top of the holder will move toward the left side of the car. That's your right. If you could stand in back of the bulb and housing, you would be turning it counter-clockwise.

The parking lamp is the smaller of the two assemblies which are inserted in the lamp housing. The wiring harness and connector come off by depressing the latch at the back of the connector and then pulling gently. You don't have to detach the connector, but it gets things out of the way.

Now grip the black assembly to which the wiring connector was attached, wiggle it a bit to break it free of the grime that will be there, and then twist it. It is sealed in place with an O ring so it may take some gentle persuading. Pushing it in slightly while twisting sometimes helps.

Once the bulb has been replaced, you can bandage the cuts on your hand you got from reaching through that tiny hole to get to the lamp assembly. :-) BTW--it is best to have no children in the vicinity the first time you try to figure this out unless they already know all the words you are likely to use.

SOURCE: changed headlight bulb but still not working, in

Keep in mind there are TWO seperate headlight bulbs for each side. One above the other. The first one you see is the highbeam. Look above it for the other rubber boot, its square. That houses the low beam bulb.

Drive it real easy until you get the computer scanned for trouble codes.

How to replace tail gate bulb on 2004 mini cooper

in the boot of the car, remove the appropriate access panel on the left or the right. There you will see a 10mm tail light retaining nut, remove it. Push firmly on the back of the tail light and it will pop out. (note there are 2 spring loaded wedges so it will go slowly) Push out evenly and disconnect the plug. With it out, there is a retaining clip just unclip it and your bulb backplane will be out and you can replece the bulbs. Do the reverse to install it.
