Question about 2003 Mini Cooper

1 Answer

I have a 2003 mini cooper R50, I have bought a replacement electro hydraulic power steering pump since the old one died. I noticed that the wiring that is connected to the power steering unit is burnt and stuck on to the power steering unit, I have managed to disconnect it but where can I find just the two connector plugs? without buying the whole wiring in Australia can someone help me?

You need to goto a good parts store or the Cooper dealer and simply buy the new Pigtail Connector for that particular unit. It will give you a new plug, and the wires long enough for you to splice to the old wires and be on your way.

MINI ONE POWER STEERING COMES AND GOES AFTER PUMP REPLACED


2 posible solutions to your problemone is that the rack and pinion unit has a restriction inside. if you remove the return line to the power steering pump and hold over a pan start engine and the pump will push old fluid into the pan instead of recirculating back into the system. you must keep power steering pump full of fluid because the return fluid is being pumped out of the system.also some models have an electric sensor switch on the pressure line that adjusts pressure by how fast the car is going.faster the car travels less power steering pressure

Where is the power steering pump and fan located on a 2003 Mini Cooper? Is this something that I should have a professional install, or easy to do myself?


the power steering pump is located at rear engine under the exhaust manifold and the fan is fitted under the pump, the fan is easy to replace but the pump is a bit hard if you never done before.

Power steering fails


I had the same problem, there is a cooling fan for the power steering pump that went out and caused some damage to the pump. The intermitent problem finally got worse and I had the pump replaced read: expensive about $1000. See if they have a rebuilt pump available.

Steering makes a whining noise - where is the fluid reservoir?


the suspect part for a power steering whine is the power steering pump, flush (very important) the system and replace the PS pump..

A constant whizzing


that whining noise is definately your power steering pump. the earlier models eg 2001-2003 just have noisy ones. so they say, if that noise become really excessive; its an early warning that its gonna fail. the newer pumps are much quiter, but i was quoted approx 1200+ CND for a new pump. I have a 2003 cooper, and the whining noise is loud. only once has the steering been really stiff, but i resolve that problem by restarting the vehicle. watch out tho, the power sttering could fail on you while your driving around a corner, and if you dont have both hands on the wheel, you'll go strait.

MINI COOPER AIRBAG R50 AND R56


If you have a Mini that was buit pre 2006 i.e. a first gen Mini then your new steering wheel will not fit, you need to buy a 1st gen Mini 3 spoke steering wheel.

Akso, for issues regarding the airbag light DO NOT pay the dealer silly amounts of money to solve the problem. Please visit the following thread http://www.mini2.com/forum/first-generation-faults-fixes/130947-airbag-warning-light-petition-bmw-uk.html
