Question about 2004 Mini Cooper

1 Answer

The seat in my mini cooper 2004 will not go up and down?

The driver's side seat is supposed to be adjustable but it stopped working. That ratchet thingie is stripped. Any easy (cheaper ) solutions than BMW;s seat frame at $500?

You should be able to close it manually. That info should be in your owners manual. If you don't have the manual, you should be able to access it for free at the below site, after registering. Sorry I couldn't access that information, but you need a vin or production # to sign into the site.

SOURCE: i need to set up and adjust xenon headlights for a

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

I have a 2004 mini cooper convertible. The roof opens to half way and will then flash red if i want it ti close all the way, All windows shut initally, but now when closing the roof the driver side rear...


I am not sure what you are trying to do. But if the problem is that the roof will only open to the first stage, sun roof, and no further, the problem is the package shelf in the trunk.

If the package lid gets pushed up and is not pushed back to it's normal position, the roof will fail to open completely. If you lift the bottom of the roof at the boot, there are levers on either side to release the bottom edge of the roof, you can make certain that the package shelf is seated correctly. Once the shelf is seated, the roof will open in all of it's glory.

Take the door panel off , remove the speaker, apply direct power to the wires. apply a large malet to the door near the motor, apply power direct while , applying 12 volts. as soon as it starts to work apply pc blaster or crc to every thing that moves. use the same procedure for the drivers side.

BRAKES! Replace your brakes NOW. You have less than 2MM of pad lining on (most likely) your front brake pads. No brakes, no stop. No stop, no MINI.

Horn not working on a 2003 mini cooper...


If you have removed the front bumper then there were holes in the metal bumper the size of baseballs on either side. Just to the outside of these holes and behind on the core support is where the horns are suppose to be. Your outside temp gauge should be the longest wire on the drivers side that comes through the metal and attaches to the inside of the plastic bumper.

Drivers side seat will not go up or down as designed.


You could remove the seat and check to see if there is anything jammed in the seat rails causing the seat not to adjust up or down. Remove the 4 Torx-40 bolts from the rails tilt the seat back and disconnect the connectors that are lined up under the bottom of the seat. MAKE SURE THE KEY IS OFF AND STAYS OFF. Check the rails, check the operation of the height adjust. If it still does not work then it most likely needs seat rails.

2004 Mini cooper convertible roof


Make sure that the microswitches in the rear trunk are all depressed. There is one where the parcel shelf (the cover that covers the view of the trunk from the outside) sits on the left that is usually the problem make sure that it is sitting on the microswitch (pull down on the closest side to you so it pivots forward and sits on the microswitch. Then make sure that the latch on the left side (drivers side) of the rear that allows easier access to the trunk switches the microswitch there. now close the trunk and try the conv top. the parcel shelf, the rear access latch and i think the trunk switches need to be depressed for the top to work. I know at least the first two.

I had the same problem when I first got my 2003 also. I played with it for a while and kept pushing down the levers on both sides and it finally caught. I haven't had a problem since.
