Question about 2007 Mini Cooper S Convertible

1 Answer

I had a reconditioned gear box in my mini cooper

I had a reconditioned gear box put in my mini cooper and now the cd player is broken and asks for a code. I think its because they disconnected the battery. I have taken it to a mini garage but they can't fix the problem? Any ideas?
Many thanks

Go to a Mini main dealership with proof that you own the vehicle. Also take along the servicing record. Using the VIN chassis number on the vehicle (and also in the service book) the dealer can look up the radio code for you but they may charge a fee. Most main dealers will give it to you for free if you ask nicely or are having any other work done on the car by them.

I'm puzzled by one thing though: a 2007 Cooper should still have been under the manufacturer's warranty, so a duff gearbox would be replaced by a Mini dealer. Part of the job would be to re-input the radio code. If this is what's happened and they couldn't provide you with the code I'd complain vociferously and get it fixed elsewhere in future.

Mini cooper radio quit , fuses not blown


IF you used a knife to attempt to remove the second cd that was stuck and the blade went UNDER the cd, it might have hit the the head of the cd player and shorted something out. IT might have also cause the head to be jammed and it wont move. The only thing that you can do now is remove it.

Reset transmission


put it in 1st gear, drive it and get up to 50 mph. once you hit 50, take your foot off the gas and let it decelerate at its own pace, no brakes. it should pop out of limp at that point. Also, this needs to be done cold.

Broken front fog light


There is a recall on headlights for 2005 MINIS, but I also know that the front fog light issue is prevalent, so DOT (888) 327-4236 SHOULD BE NOTIFIED AND MINI USA at: 1 866-MINI USA. Are you asking how to replace the fog light? There are also manuals available for each car with detailed guides on maintenance so you can learn your own vehicle and do it yourself, or safeguard yourself from being overcharged by mechanics. I hope this helps somewhat for you! Look here. A few people have had this issue and also have it relate to further issues. They are working towards a recall.
