SOURCE: CVT 2002 Mini Cooper transmission check and change

The only way to check the trans fluid is to drain the fluid right out of the trans pan. There should be 5 liters. The only way to get the fluid in is by pumping the fluid back in by means of the fill plug on the lower front of the transmission. I believe it is a 4 or a 6mm allen to remove the plug. Whatever you use to pump the fluid back in needs to seal where the fill plug is because fluid will pour right back out. I would change the fluid at least every 50k.

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: radiator cap

Don't put the sealer in they are nototrious for making the problems later with water pumps and causing engine overheathing later. spend some time to find a leak and do it properly.

Mini cooper 2008 windscreen wash jets

Mine did the same thing. I took a sewing needle and cleaned out the hole in the sprayers, which had calcium buildup or something else. You can also redirect the spray nozzles at the same time. Hope this helps.

Sounds like it's the earth wire issue. Try this:
1) Remove Driver Side Cowl(?) grill (top).
2) Connect a wire to buttom screw of wiper housing

4) Losen top left struts screw and insert other end of wire then tighten
5) Wala! Wipers work again!
