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: 2003 mini cooper drivers door will not lock with

A solenoid operates the lock mechanism. Does it make a 'click' when the switch is operated? If so, then the linkage connecting the solenoid core to the lock has probably come undone. If no click, then the solenoid itself may be defective or the wiring to it is broken or disconnected at some point. Either way, the inside door panel must be removed to access. Hope this helps!

My 2004 cavalier will not turn over without excessive pumping of the gas pedal. Battery, starter and everything else seems to be fine. Is it the pump or something else?


Try this next time you start it. Turn the key to the run position, do not start the engine. Wait 3-5 seconds and turn the key off. Turn the key right back to the on position and wait for 3-5 seconds. Turn the key off. Repeat the above one more time. Now try to start. If it starts right up you have a fuel supply problem. Either the fuel pump is bleeding off or the fuel pressure regulator is leaking. Pumping the pedal is doing nothing besides buying time for the fuel system to pressurize. Post an engine size and I'll help you locate the fuel pressure regulator. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

My 2003 Mini Cooper turns over several times without starting. I shut the key off and try again and it usually starts the 2nd time


you may want to check for a plugged fuel filter. because it sounds like fuel is not build up pressure in lines. to start it on first try. if not that, check fuel pressure from pump. good-day it could be the fuel pressure regulator also. check filter first.

Signs of a Bad Fuel Pressure Regulator
the vehicle will not start, if a bad regulator. Usually, this is a problem that is encountered in the morning when you start your vehicle. Many a times, the engine starts, but stalls shortly after starting. check the fuse and relay for pump. also remove line to fuel pressure regulator and if fuel in line, replace fuel pressure regulator. check for spark and also the timing belt. its one sign of not starting. if car runs fine on spray, I would not say its the timing belt or chain.

Did you replace the fuel pump with a NEW fuel pump, or a used one?
Get in the car, insert key and turn to "On". Do not attempt to start. Do you hear the fuel pump run for a few moments? Try it a few times, starting the car each time after you hear the fuel pump run. If the fuel pump does not run, then chances are, it's a bad fuel pump.
It could also be the fuel pressure regulator, located on the fuel rail.

Your statement about the oil is confusing.

Just changed fuel filter. Now having trouble starting. Then runs


What is the fuel pressure?. how many miles on the truck? has the pump been replaced before? one item to check first is the fuel pressure regulator. it may be under the engine cover on the drivers side. turn the eng off and remove the little vac line from the regulator. see if there is any fuel coming out of the nipple. if there is fuel, replace the fuel pressure regulator. it may take a while to leak fuel , but if it does, replace it.

Power steering stiff - is it the pump ? or the steering rack?


If the wheel binds up or you encounter harder steering in one direction but not the other, it's your rack. Check for leaks, is it from the connecting hose or the rack itself. Can't find it? It's usually on the bottom rear of your engine,a tie rod on either side will attach to your steering knuckle. If your steering is stiff while wheel is centered or at maximum lock it's your pump.

Never worked on a mini in particular. Doing a quick google search and pumps (minus labour) seem to be 350-450$ depending where you go, unless there's some crazy book time i'm unaware of, 1300$ seems pretty steep.

Is there a noise when you turn? If there is, jack up the front end and remove the cap off your power steering resevoir. Slowly turn the wheel from lock to lock, while the engine is running, to bleed any air out of the system
If you replace one or the other, don't forget to do the above step.

Takes multiple times to start


I think you have a faling fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator allowing fuel pressure to bleed down when the engine is off.
Try this test - When you start the car for the first time of the day, turn the key to "ON", wait a few seconds, turn the key off. Wait about 15 seconds, turn the key to "ON" again, wait a few seconds. Then wait one final time for 1 seconds and try starting the car. If it starts right away, that means fule pressure is bleeding of due to a bad check vavle int he fuel pump, a bad fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator.

The reason for the procedure is because when you turn the key to "ON", the fuel pump runs for 2 seconds and then shuts off if the engine is not running. The 15 seconds wait is for the power and fuel pump relay to cycle off before it will run the pump again.

Let us know how the test comes out. The fuel pump is in the fuel tank and hums when it is running.
