Mini Cooper Transmission fluid

Question:

NAME: jamie
SUBJECT: MiniMania.com: MINI Cooper transmission fluid
NOTE: I have a 2008 mini cooper S with factory LSD. What fluid should I buy.

Answer:

Hi Jamie,
Thank you for your email.
There should be a sticker on the transmission indicating the type of compatible fluid for the transmission.
A Yellow sticker indicates BMW LT-4 – our NMG7301.
A Red sticker indicates MTF-94 – since the factory only sells 20 liter jugs, the Redline MTL is an alternative.  However we have heard of some MINI dealers decline warranty coverage when Redline is used – check with your local MINI service adviser.
Redline MTL from the Redline web site:  “Popular for BMW, Honda and Acura, Ford Focus, late-model Mini Cooper, Land Rover/Range Rover LT77S, Dodge & Jeep NV1500, NV3500 , NV3550 and NV5600 truck transmissions”.
Here is a chart that may help.
Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Ken

Mini Cooper Driving Lights

Question:

NAME: jamie
SUBJECT: MiniMania.com: Driving lights
NOTE: Hello,  I am interested in installing driving lights on my r56 Mini Cooper but I have been told that it is not that simple since I have xenon lights.  Before I buy the wiring harness/brackets and lamps, can you confirm what wire I should tap into for the high beams?  I know that without the xenon option it is simple: just tap into yellow wire with blue stripe…but not with xenons.
Thanks so much in advance

Answer:

Hi Jamie,
Thank you for your interest with Mini Mania and our products.
You can take a look at the installation instructions here – it includes instructions for both Halogen Driving Lights and Xenon driving lights.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
PS- you might also look at our Mini Cooper factory Driving Lights Application Guide

Emergency Spare Tire

Question:
SUBJECT: MiniMania.com: Emergency Spare Tire for R-60 Countryman with 18″ Wheels
NOTE: Hello:
Do you offer the above for the Countryman with 18″ Wheels?

Answer:
Hello Joe,
Thank you for your interest with Mini Mania and our products.
The compact spare emergency tire G2NMW7610 is compatible with the Countryman whether it uses 16, 17, or 18″ tires.  The overall diameter for all these tires are very similar, so in this case, ‘one size fits all’…
The diameter of the spare is slightly smaller than the actual tire on the Countryman.  As an emergency spare, it is designed to get you to a service center so you an get your flat repaired – for this application, the slightly smaller diameter spare works fine.

I hope this helps.
Best regards,
Ken

Mini Cooper Battery

Question:
I need to change my battery. I am wondering the exact type of the battery that i will need for a mini cooper supercharged 2005, hatchback.

Answer:
Hi Judith,
Thank you for your interest with Mini Mania and our products.
It is best for you to find a local battery supplier and have them look up in their catalog for fitment to your MINI. Many different brands fit and they each have different part numbers.
Here are some batteries that have been reported to fit the 2005 Cooper S:
Duralast Gold battery model # H5-DLG
Batteries Plus Rayovac battery (SLI47H5)
Interstate MTP-H5
Battery designs may change over time so it is best to double check before choosing one of these.

Second Question:
Thank you….I went onto the link and it indicates installation requires two lock nuts, which cost $1.55 each…are these included with the module? My card information has changed so I guess I need to open a new account?
Best,
Cary

Hi Cary,
The nuts are not included, but you should be able to re-use the old ones, if you still have them… If not, I can add them to your order.
