Preparing the vehicle

Read and comply with the safety precautions provided on page 106.<

1. Secure the vehicle to prevent it from

rolling: Place the folding chock behind the front wheel on the other side of the vehicle; on downward inclines, place it in front of this wheel. If the wheel is changed on a surface with a more severe slope, take additional precautions to secure the vehicle from rolling

2. Loosen the lug bolts by a half turn.

Jacking up the vehicle 1. Place the jack at the jacking point closest

to the wheel. The jack base must be perpendicular to the surface beneath the jacking point

9. Pull out the space-saver spare tire towards the rear underneath the vehicle

10. Position the space-saver spare tire with

the valve facing upwards

11. Unscrew the valve extension from the

valve of the space-saver spare tire

12. Unscrew the dust cap from the exten-

sion and attach to the space-saver spare tire.



2. Insert the jack head for jacking up in the

square recess of the jacking point

3. Jack the vehicle up until the wheel you are changing is raised from the ground.

The vehicle jack is designed for changing wheels only. Do not

attempt to raise another vehicle model with it or to raise any load of any kind. To do so could cause accidents and personal injury.<

Fitting the space-saver spare tire 1. Unscrew the lug bolts and remove the


2. Remove accumulations of mud or dirt

from the mounting surfaces of the wheel and hub. Clean the lug bolts

3. Fit the space-saver spare tire 4. Screw at least two lug bolts finger-tight

into opposite bolt holes

5. Screw in the remaining bolts 6. Tighten all the lug bolts firmly in a diag-

onal pattern

7. Lower the vehicle 8. Remove the jack.

Tightening the lug bolts Tighten the lug bolts in a diagonal pattern.

As soon as possible, have the secure seating of the lug bolts (tightening torque 72 ftlb (100 Nm)) checked using a calibrated torque wrench. Otherwise, a wheel that might come loose can lead to a severe accident.<

Replace the defective tire as soon as possible and have the new wheel/tire assembly balanced.

Driving with the space-saver spare tire Drive cautiously. Do not exceed a speed of 50 mph (80 km/h). You can expect changes in vehicle handling such as delayed braking response, longer braking distances, and changes in self- steering properties in marginal stability limits.

Only one space-saver spare tire may be mounted at one time. Reinstall

wheels and tires of the same size and speci- fication as soon as possible. Maintain prescribed tire pressures, see page 80.<

Only use full hubcaps approved by the manufacturer. Otherwise there is no guarantee that the hubcap fits securely. The hubcap must not be fitted to the space- saver spare tire, as it could be damaged.<

Check and correct the tire inflation pressure at the earliest opportu-



Continuing driving with a damaged tire Driving can continue under certain condi- tions with safety tires, depending on the vehicle load and the severity of the tire damage, at a maximum speed of 50 mph (80 km/h). You can determine the possible mileage for continued driving on the basis of the following general indications: > Tire inflation pressure 0 bar (0 psi):

approx. 95 miles (150 km)

> Tire inflation pressure 0.5 bar — 1 bar (7.2 psi — 14.5 psi): approx. 300 miles (500 km)

> Tire inflation pressure greater than 1 bar (14.5 psi): approx. 600 miles (1,000 km).


Flat tire The yellow indicator lamp in the instru- ment cluster lights up to indicate a flat tire. In addition, a gong sounds, see pages 17, 62. 1. Reduce vehicle speed carefully to under 50 mph (80 km/h), avoiding hard brake applications and steering maneuvers

2. Do not exceed a speed of 50 mph

(80 km/h)

3. Identify damaged tires; check tire infla- tion pressures on all four wheels at the next opportunity, see page 80

4. Correct the tire inflation pressure if you wish to continue your journey and this is permitted, see next column

5. Have damaged tires changed by your

MINI center, see page 84.

Your MINI center has the information needed for working with safety tires and is equipped with the necessary special tools. They provide advice if you wish to replace the tires on your MINI or wish to re-equip from summer to winter tires — or vice versa, see also pages 80, 84, 85.<

For safety reasons, do not have a damaged safety tire repaired.<

You will recognize safety tires by a circular symbol containing the letters RSC on the side of the tire. Safety tires consist of self-contained tires and special rims. The tire reinforcement ensures that the tire retains some residual safety in the event of pressure drop and driving remains possible to a restricted degree.

The reinforcement on the flanks of the safety tires means that it is

usually not possible to detect an air loss from outside.<



Location in the MINI COOPER The battery is located in the engine compartment. Exact location, see page 87.

Location in the MINI COOPER S The battery is located in the luggage compartment under the floor mat.

Battery care The battery is absolutely maintenance-free, that is, the original electrolyte will normally last for the service life of the battery under moderate climatic conditions.

For all questions regarding the battery, please consult your MINI

center. <

Charging the battery Only charge the battery in the vehicle via the terminals in the engine compartment with the engine switched off, see "Jump- starting" on page 113.

Whenever working on the electrical system, disconnect the cable from

the negative terminal of the battery. Failure to do this could result in fire hazards or injury due to short circuits.<

Return used batteries to a recycling point or your MINI center. Maintain

the battery in an upright position for trans- port and storage. Secure the battery to prevent it from tilting during transport.<



If an electrical device fails, switch it off and check the fuse. Plastic tweezers that you can use to pull fuses out of their sockets can be found in the fuse box of the interior, see next column.

In the engine compartment To the right of the battery. Open the cover panel of the fuse box. To do so, press the clip fastener.

In the interior On the left side of the footwell in the side trim panel. Open the cover panel of the fuse box. To do so, press the fastener.

Do not attempt to repair a blown fuse or replace it with a fuse of a different

color or amperage rating. To do this could cause a fire in the vehicle resulting from a circuit overload.<

If a fuse blows a second time, have the cause of the damage rectified by

your MINI center.<





The warning triangle is located beneath the luggage compartment cover.

The first-aid kit is located together with the onboard tool kit in the left of the luggage compartment, behind the side trim panel.

Comply with legal requirements requiring you to carry a hazard

warning triangle in the vehicle.<

Some articles in the first-aid kit are perishable. For this reason, check the expiration dates of each of the items regu- larly, and replace any whose expiration dates have passed. Source: any pharmacy. Comply with legislation requiring you to carry a first-aid kit in the vehicle.<

Do not use spray starter fluids to start the engine. When your battery is discharged, you can use two jumper cables to start your vehicle with power from the battery in a second vehicle. By the same token, you can provide another vehicle with starting assistance. To do so, use only jumper cables with fully insulated terminal clamps.

Do not touch live wiring and cables on a running engine. There is a risk of fatal injury if you do this. Carefully observe the following instructions to avoid personal injury and/or damage to either vehicle or both vehicles.<



Preparation for jump-starting 1. Check whether the battery of the support vehicle has 12 Volts and approximately the same capacity (Ah) (printed on the battery)

2. Switch off the engine of the support


3. Switch off any electrical systems and components in both vehicles — except for the hazard warning flashers of the support vehicle. > Do not disconnect the discharged battery from the vehicle electrical system

> Make certain that there is no contact

between the bodywork of the two vehicles — short circuit hazard!

4. With the battery of the MINI COOPER, remove the cover panel. To do so, press both clips at the same time or with the MINI COOPER S, open the cover of the positive terminal connection (for jump-starting)*, see arrow 1.

Connect the jumper cables

Adhere to the sequence also when providing support for other vehicles; failure to observe this procedure can lead to sparks at the terminals and pose an injury hazard.<


Performing the jump-start 1. Start the engine of the vehicle providing the current and allow to run at a fast idle speed for several minutes

2. Start the engine on the vehicle with the discharged battery in the usual manner. > If the first start attempt is not

successful, wait a few minutes before another attempt in order to allow the discharged battery to recharge.

On the MINI: Before disconnecting the jumper

cables, switch on the lighting, rear window defroster and the highest blower speed as well as the engine for at least approx. 10 seconds to prevent a voltage surge from the regulator to the electrical systems and components.<

3. Then disconnect the jumper cables in

the reverse order.

Depending on the cause of the malfunction, have the battery checked and recharged at your MINI center.<

1. On the MINI COOPER S, the positive

terminal connection (for jump-starting), see arrow 1, functions as the positive battery terminal. Use the jumper cable (+) to set up a connection between the positive terminal of the discharged battery and the positive terminal of the support battery

2. Use the second jumper cable (—) to set

up the connection between the negative terminals of both vehicles. To do so: > Connect one terminal clamp to the

negative terminal and/or to an engine or body ground of the support vehicle > Connect the second terminal clamp to

the negative terminal of the battery and/or to an engine or body ground of the vehicle to be started. For the MINI, see arrow 2.


Screw the tow fitting in until it bottoms firmly. If this is not done, the

threads could be damaged. Never attach tie-down hooks, chains, straps, or tow hooks to tie rods, control arms, or any other part of the vehicle suspension, as severe damage to these components will occur, leading to possible accidents.<

For towing, use either a tow bar or a nylon rope or nylon belts that prevent sudden jerking movements.

Tow fitting The screw-in tow fitting is stored in the onboard tool kit; be sure that it remains in the vehicle at all times. This fitting is designed for installation in the tow sockets located at the front and rear of the vehicle. It is intended for towing on paved road surfaces only.

Access to tow sockets Use a suitable object (e.g. credit card, screwdriver) to press out the covers from the recess.

Tow bars If the tow fittings of the two vehicles are not directly opposite one another, please note: > Clearance and maneuvering capability

will be strictly limited in corners

> The inclination of the tow bar generates lateral force (critical above all if the road surface is slippery).

Do not tow a vehicle that is heavier than the towing vehicle, otherwise it will no longer be possible to control vehicle response.<





On vehicles with Continuously Vari- able automatic Transmission (CVT), it is not permitted to start the engine by tow- starting. The transmission could be damaged. For jump-starting, see page 113.<

Only tow-start vehicles with a catalytic converter when the engine is cold, other- wise, unburned fuel in the catalytic converter could catch fire. It is better to use jumper cables. 1. Switch on the hazard warning flashers

(comply with national regulations)

2. Ignition key in position 2
3. Engage 3rd gear 4. Tow-start with the clutch pedal pressed 5. Slowly release the clutch 6. When the engine starts, press the clutch

pedal again

7. Switch off the hazard warning flashers. Have the cause of the starting problems rectified by your MINI center.

Only tow vehicles with Continuously Variable automatic Transmission

(CVT) with the front wheels raised or on a special transport vehicle, otherwise the transmission can be damaged.<

1 Ignition key in position 1:

The brake lamps, turn signals, horn and windshield wipers can be operated

2 Switch on the hazard warning flashers

(comply with national regulations).

If the electrical system has failed, place some kind of warning on the towed vehicle, e.g. a sign or warning triangle in the rear window.

Ensure that if the electrical system has failed the ignition key is in posi- tion 1, otherwise the steering lock could engage and make it impossible to steer the vehicle. When the engine is not running, there is no power-assist. This means that greater effort is required for braking and steering.<

Towing with a commercial tow truck > Do not tow with sling-type equipment > Use a wheel-lift or flatbed carrier > Please comply with applicable towing


Never allow passengers to ride in a towed vehicle for any reason.<
