SOURCE: is there any special tools

you will need a big socket to remove the axle nut--about 20 mm or so. Other than that, I don't think so. Procedures from autozone.com below. it doesn't mention having to press bearing into hub.


Removal & Installation

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Front wheels Hub nut Brake caliper Rotor ABS sensor Wheel hub from steering knuckle and driveshaft Wheel bearings
To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:

    Wheel bearing into hub Wheel hub to steering knuckle and driveshaft; torque bolts to 41 ft. lbs. (56 Nm) ABS sensor; torque to 6 ft. lbs. (8 Nm) Brake rotor and caliper New flanged hub nut; torque to 134 ft. lbs. (182 Nm)

Could be the steering column. I had mine replaced under warranty for the same issue. This is a known problem for first generation MINI's. Talk to your dealer for a replacement.

Grinding noise left rear wheel


It's either the brakes or the wheel bearing. Remove the brake rotor and check for grooves or scoring then rotate the hub assembly. You'll find a problem with one of the two. A growl that changes with vehicle speed is usually a bearing whereas brakes usually change sound as you apply low to moderate brake pressure.12_24_2012_7_08_04_pm.png

2005 mini cooper has loud humming noise from rear when driving above 40 mph. Any suggestions on what this could be


I had a similar issue and it ended up being a broken wheel bearing. I even ended up having two, one was broken on my front passenger side, and one broken on my rear driver side. The part costs about $280.00, but could cost around $400.00 with service repair. The noise of a broken wheel bearing can sound like a humming, and over time it becomes louder. The car can be driven with a broken wheel bearing, but doing so can eventually lead to other wheel/tire maintenance. MINI's endure this commonly due to their low profile to the ground. Here is a forum on further issues experienced, including the bearing, and efforts towards recalls. http://newmini.wordpress.com/2009/02/17/mini-cooper-power-steering-failure/#comment-884

How do i change bumper fog lights on my 03 mini cooper


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

What are the signs/sounds of front wheel bearing wear?


Tyres not wearing evenly in extreme cases

A noise like a locomotive running on rails , sort of a low rumble combined with a whine.

Normally they make that noise in a straight line and get quiet when you turn the wheel as the loading on the bearing then changes

As they are driven by a drive shaft it is impossible to test them by spinning the wheel with the car jacked up
