Question about 2005 Mini Cooper

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

It looks like the running light is positioned in front of as well as next to the turn signal light. How do you get the running light out to replace the bulb.

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.

1774 and 1775


There is probably no need to contact the BAR though you always have the right reserved. Trouble Code P1774 indicates your Mini's rear wheel speed sensor lost its signal, and trouble code P1775 indicates the right rear wheel speed sensor lost its signal as well. Both more than likely triggered during the dynamometer portion of the smog check inspection; while the front wheels are turning and the rear wheels are stationary. During this time, as far as the ABS system knows, the rear wheel sensors have lost their signals.
After a computer reset and driving your Mini Cooper for a few miles everything should return to normal, as apparently they have; and you've passed the smog check. Should the check engine light return in the near future for the same trouble codes P1774 and P1775 we'd recommend inspecting the rear wheel speed sensors for possible debris build-up. Since these trouble codes where triggered during the smog check and smog check machine failure we can assume the trouble codes were temporary and not related to any physical problem with your Mini Cooper.

I want to put spotlamps on my mini cooper d 59 plate, we have the mini spots but do not have the wiring diagaram


Lights are easy to wire. Positive to positive, negative to negative, and another positive for an ACC (to come on with the car). Or just use a circuit breaker, (like a switch) and manually turn them on/off.
