Question about 2002 Mini Cooper

1 Answer

I think a part broke on my 2002 Mini Cooper's window lift mechan.

I think that a part may have broken on my 2002 Mini Cooper's drivers door window lift mechanism. The motor works and the window will lower but it won't raise. If I lower the window, I have to lift it up by hand to close it.

I have good tools, but is there a diagram out there that I can print out of the window mechanism?

Thank you all for any help!

2003 mini cooper drivers door will not lock with key fob or inside lock switch, will only lock manually turning the key. All other locks work properly.

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!

I don't know about a locking function on the 2002 but "Stuck" motors are common. Try a couple of very firm thumps on the door midway between the big and small speakers.

My mini cooper s has a problem where the windows open and the doors unlock when you lock the car, you then close the windows and lock the car again and it does the same, if you run the car then do the same...

I have got the same problem on my Cooper S. It was happening around Christmas time, I did'nt think much about it at first until I went to my car on Boxing day to find the inside soaking wet from the rain where my windows had dropped again. I have called the AA out aswell as going to down to the Mini Garage.I got told by the AA that they think that water as been getting into the fuse box under the bonit. I hope this helps.

With ignition switch on and engine off activate a window switch... listen for a clicking noise. if there is no noise then start checking fuses and relays. The fuse panel in on the left of the drivers legs. open it up it is well marked and in it you will find a handy fuse puller and spare fuses if they're needed. If you hear the clicking sound then try the Mini cooper Thump. Apply it to the doors midway between the large and small speakers (It may take two or three solid thumps) re-apply as needed
