Fits Cooper (non-S) models:
2002-07/2004 R50 MINI Cooper Hatchback
For other models and production dates, see NME7681-P.
Here are some things to check if you are having problems with the fuel supply or fuel pumps:
MINI recommends using Top Tier gasoline (min. octane rating AKI 91 with alcohol content of less than 10%). Only the exclusive usage of Top Tier gasoline provides the full benefit of reducing deposits build-up.
This Fuel Pump maintains fuel pressure of 3.5 bar (50psi). The fuel rail in the engine compartment contains a pressure damper / fuel pressure regulator to smooth out fluctuations in fuel pressure during high load situations.
Fuel pressure specification measured at the shrader valve on the end of the fuel rail is:
Cooper 3.0 + 0.2 bar (43 + 3psi)
Cooper S 3.5 + 0.2 bar (50 + 3psi)
See NME8655 for the replacement Fuel Filter and Level Sensor
See NME8632 for the Fuel Pump Level Sensor
See NME7676 for the replacement Fuel Filter.
For the newer Gen 2 2007+ MINIs, see G2NME6101.
