check the power steering fluid if it is full then you would have to replace your power steering pump if not you might have a leak and if so get that fixed before you destroy your power steering pump.

SOURCE: 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.

There is a problem with the thermostat gaskets. Often times they leak and allow cars to overheat. Check under your car and make sure that there is no coolant leaking. MINI has updated the gasket so if you get your car serviced at a mini dealer then your gasket will be updated. There is not a bulletin or recall for this replacement this would be at your cost.

SOURCE: Power steering stiff - is it the pump ? or the steering rack?

If the wheel binds up or you encounter harder steering in one direction but not the other, it's your rack. Check for leaks, is it from the connecting hose or the rack itself. Can't find it? It's usually on the bottom rear of your engine,a tie rod on either side will attach to your steering knuckle. If your steering is stiff while wheel is centered or at maximum lock it's your pump.

Never worked on a mini in particular. Doing a quick google search and pumps (minus labour) seem to be 350-450$ depending where you go, unless there's some crazy book time i'm unaware of, 1300$ seems pretty steep.

Is there a noise when you turn? If there is, jack up the front end and remove the cap off your power steering resevoir. Slowly turn the wheel from lock to lock, while the engine is running, to bleed any air out of the system
If you replace one or the other, don't forget to do the above step.

Where do you put the steering fluid in for a 2006 mini cooper? There's nothing in the owners manual about steering fluid.


Every answer here is wrong. Your Mini Cooper has electric power steering. No service required. That is why it does not list fluid type in your owner's manual.

2002 Mini non S cooling fan not working, No power at the relay on terminal 30 but has power at 87


Hello there, i think i can solve your problem , check fuse 3 under the hood it should be a 5 amp if its not the check the closest 5amp to that, check to see if it blown if it is blown then your power steering fan is now working as well as the cooling fan, if that is the cause you will need to replaced the power steering fan as well as the 5 amp fuse, and also in addition you will need to sepate the power steering fan from the cooling fan. Mini parts sells a harness to separte the 2 fan

2005 mini cooper battery was dead, bought new one and now will not crank. Radio and lights come on.


Have you looked into the PSP (Power Steering Pump) relay, or the cooling fan? This problem has been know to create issues and lead to a dead battery. For more information, read this forum of MINI owners, there are quite a few with your issue, and they are trying to get a recall. the 2005 MINI's also have a headlight recall.

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.

I have a 2004 cooper and i have been told I need to replace steering pump how hard is it to do ?the problem is intermittant has anybody any sugeestions please prenders167@yahoo.com i'm in Houston


I have experienced total loss of power steering. It took about 45 mins to remove the pump and 2 mins to remove the cooling fan. Two bolts that hold the pump in the surrounding frame are accessible from the rear of the frame near the down pipe of the manifold. My problem now is that after bench testing the fan that works ok and a pump that may or may not work I am unsure of where to go. The research I have seen state there are numerous fuse locations associated w/ this car.

Replacing the pump seems to be the easy part just truly diagnosing the problem is another. I am working this afternoon to get to pump working so I will post other findings tonight or tomorrow.
