Mini Cooper Brake Maintenance Kit Application Guide
Complete Brake Maintenance Kits for your Mini Cooper includes the following:
- Set of Front Brake Pads
- Set of Rear Brake Pads
- Pair of Front Brake Rotors
- Pair of Rear Brake Rotors
- Set of Brake Wear Sensors
While some brake maintenance can be limited to new pads, the best solution is to replace both the pads and rotors. MINI recommends that you replace the rotors whenever you replace pads. You can 'turn' the rotors and re-use your old rotors to save some money, but be aware that turning rotors will reduce heat dissipation capacity (between the wear on the rotor and turning, you lose significant amounts of metal) and increase chance of 'warping' due to the reduced thickness.
For best performance and longevity, replace the rotors and pads at the same time!
MINI recommends Brake Fluid replacement every 2 years to maintain the optimum performance of the ABS brake system. For High Performance Brake Fluids, see the following:
- Ate Performance Brake Fluid - Very Good
- Motul Racing Brake Fluid - Better
- Torque Racing Brake Fluid - Best
For 'standard' replacement Brake Fluid, see Mini Cooper Brake Fluid Pentosin DOT4.
