Engine oil lubricates all the moving and functional engine parts. As a result of combustion, particles of dirt and combustion residue, such as soot, escape into the engine oil. They contaminate the oil and make it more viscous. This means that the oil supply is not adequate and protection from corrosion can no longer be ensured. As a result, engine performance is impaired and fuel consumption increases. In the worst case, the engine could be damaged.
Increasing engine performance and, at the same time, reducing fuel consumption places high demands on engine building. Only clean oil can ensure that engine performance remains consistent. This is where the full effectiveness of MANN-FILTER is really brought to bear.
MANN-FILTER Oil Filters reliably purify oils from dirt and solid particles such as dust, abraded metal, carbon deposits and soot particles. They are used with engine oil, hydraulic oil and gear oil.
NOTES ON ENGINE OILS
The MINI Service Information M11 01 15 dated December 2015 recommends the following engine oils:
For an economical 4-pak of this same filter and gasket, see G2NMK1056.
To reset the oil change interval in your MINI, see oil service reset.
For additional protection, take a look at our Magnetic Oil Drain Plug.
See G2NME1050 for the original factory replacement filter.
For 2002-2006 MINI Hardtops and 2005-2008 MINI Convertibles, see NME1050.
Torque oil filter cannister to 25Nm or 18 lb-ft, and drain plug to 30Nm or 22 lb-ft.
It helps if you 'loosen' the oil filter cannister while you drain the oil to allow the oil to drain out of the filter. You will spill less oil this way. To access the filter cannister, remove the washer reservoir (1 bolt) but not the hoses, and move it aside. Before you press the filter into the cannister cover, press it into the filter base 'all the way' and remove to prep the filter for proper seating. Now you can press filter into the cannister cover and install. Remember to use the new O-ring on the cannister cover - put a little oil on the new oil ring so it doesn't bind. Start the cannister cover by hand to avoid cross-threading. Don't forget to use the new crush washer on the oil pan drain plug.
