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: how do I change the brake fluid of my mini cooper

this is something if you need to ask you need to leave to the professionals . not to be mean but that is your life you are playing with and one little air pocket in the line could cause you your life. buy the way it is a 2006 there really shouldn't be any reason you should need to change this yet.

any way take the cap off brake bleeder loose at the pass side rear and use a brake line bleeder kit to drain the fluid any refill the resivior as needed then do the driver rear bleeder then the pass front then the driver front
just rememver to never let the resivior get empty

SOURCE: how do i change bumper fog lights on my 03 mini

Turn the wheel so that the wheel well you're accessing is pointed in. Then carefully unscrew the clips that hold the front side of the inner fender liner on. You don't need to remove them all. Bend the liner back and you'll see the back of the bulb. (it may be wires that are visible, or it may have a cap depending on the model) All you need to do is twist the cap to get to the bulb, or twist the bulb and it will come out

Mini cooper 2004 heater blowing cold after changing thermostat

you did not fully purge the air out of the Coolant system. You have an air pocket prevent in the coolant to flow properly.
There should be a separate bleeder on a high spot on the engine. Many cars today have the radiator lower than the engine so they need to have a purge valve up on the engine or a separate Fill that is above the top of the radiator

How difficult is it change a bumper cover on a 2005 mini cooper s rear bumper

Usually, pretty easy but time consuming. The fasteners might be in difficult places to get to. The ones under the boot are easy enough, but finding the ones in the wheel wells may be more taxing.

Check your connections and make sure the sockets are clean. If that doesn't work, looking into the Ballast (High Voltage, be careful) to see if that's the fault.

Radiator cap

There is not a radiator cap on mini coopers it is a closed radiator. The coolant expansion tank is in the back of the engine compartment twards the middle. The fill for the coolant is just on the drivers side of the engine block between the engine and the battery box/ engine air filter.

Mini Cooper convertible is overheating, fan contiues after stop

I had the same problem two weeks ago. I have a 2006 Mini Cooper. Brought it into the shop. They changed out the themostat (under warranty). The service advisor said that the 2005 and 2006 Mini's had a problem with the themostat's.

Good luck.
