Quality Professional grade Spark Plug Sockets for the newer MINIs using the new 14mm 3/8" drive Bi-Hex spark plugs. Slender design to fit the tight spark plug tubes. Sold each.
Use one of these sockets for the 'right tool' for the job! The spark plugs on the MINI are recessed deep in the cylinder head and requires a deep thin-walled socket. The spark plug themselves are 12-point bi-hex pattern where a standard 6-point hex socket will not work.

2007-2013 R56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop
2008-2014 R55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Clubman
2009-2015 R57 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertible

Choose from the following:
Standard Professional Grade
This socket is NOT like the one found in your dad's tool box - the difference is in the quality of rubber and design. We recommend a 'locking' extension to get the socket off the spark plug after you torque the plug.
Magnetic Professional Grade
14mm Bi-Hex deep socket (12-point), 3/8" drive, 'narrow body' with a magnetic ring to retain the spark plug. The magnet never wears out unlike the rubber rings that shrink over time and lose retention.
