Question about 2005 Mini Cooper
My Mini is making this loud clacking noise, sounds like it is coming from the front driver wheel. It does it when the car is just driving forward and gets quiet when I make turns. When I first started hearing the noise it would come & go & it wasn't that load....now it is all the time & very load. What do you think it could be?

check the blogs out on the net. apperentely the mini coopers have transmission problems. My 2004 with less the 49,000 miles just went out. I thought it was a theow out bearing also. But I was wrong.

often times this problem ends up needing a front sunroof section of the conv top replaced. The cable that drives the hooks to unlatch is most likely broken and that is currently the only fix. EXPENSIVE. Sorry

SOURCE: 2005 mini cooper has loud
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

See if you can find the schematics (a wiring diagram for your entire car, or simply the component involved.) You can then use a multimeter and check each wire for a short.
