2002 Mini S: Screeching sound when shifting to first gear

I have a 2002 mini cooper s that has about 81K mi. for the past 2 months i started hearing a screeching sound when i start shifting into first gear. i notice that this usually occurs when the first time i get in the car to drive and before it's gets well into normal operating temperature. its a very slight screeching sound that only happens when shifting to first gear from stop.i have taken to a shop but so far they can't figure it out.

Sounds like the first gear syncro is going out you could have the trans rebuilt or the most expensive route is to replace the trans all together.

The car will not go over 10 mi/ph ? the trans will not shift out of first gear - CVT?


Is the check engine lite on? If it is have the vehicle scanned for codes. Sounds like the Transmission control module not responding to anything.

MINI COOPER 2002, 25.00 MILES. ANY OF THE WINDOWS WORKS


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

Gear stick


Mini's have had problems in the past with the shift cables coming off or breaking. No worries: the only danger is that you will be stuck in the gear you where in when the cables break. No damage to the car will occur. You should check out the recall notices. Good luck
