2003 Mini Cooper Problems

There are reports of the electric door locks malfunctioning.

There are reports of premature clutch wear on cars equipped with manual transmissions.  Clutch replacement on these vehicles can be quite costly.

Minis have an electric power steering pump that is prone to failure. When replacing the pump, our technicians advise inspecting the cooling fan because it is often the cause of the failure of the pump.

2003 Mini Cooper Questions

Car has no sun roof and the seals on the door look okay. The floor behind the driver seat is soaking wet plus the seat belt. Any ideas

I have a local tech who can "retrain" the transmission if I can get the software to do it. Otherwise, the nearest dealer is over a hundred miles away (one way). Is there a source available that will sell me the software to do the transmission reprogramming? Thank you.

It worked fine until my grandson took it for a drive. Could he have done something or is it just one of those things. What can be done?

Handles and brakes really well. Super fun to drive, however I did have the automatic transmission failure that is mentioned here, fortunately it was still under warranty. Gotta love the great mileage too!

One of the best handling cars on the planet sub super car.

How do you fix the rear seat releases? Should be a recall on these. Please help
