  1. Yesterday
  2. Happy Sunday Evening people!! Now I just want to gauge interest and thoughts on mobile valeters? Is there enough in the North East? Would you use one? Pros and cons? It's an idea I've been toying with for a while, could potentially maybe set up my own mobile valeting/detailing business. What's your thoughts? Completely new to starting a business from scratch so be nice ๐Ÿ˜‚
  3. Last week
  4. Ps - you can replace the sensor without removing the calliper. Just a wheel off job. Maybe photograph the cable route before removal to aid refitting.
  5. Little update to this one. Iโ€™ve replaced the pad wear sensor today. It was the front one for me. The old one looked fine but the reset option was unavailable in the cars menu for the worn brake pads warning. Upon fitting the new sensor the reset option appeared and now I have no warning. Happy days. As for the brakes themselves itโ€™s too early to say, given I have it booked in the garage this coming sat for bleeding of the ABS pump. Will post back with final verdict.
  6. For those who haven't seen, this new GP3 has been spotted in London before official release. Still not sure I can get over the arches ๐Ÿค”

  8. It's a smart little motor, another one of the apprentices I invited along from my work @LewisE. For a Renault dealer we've got an odd thing for other brands ๐Ÿ˜… however unfortunately @Dylan Holmes sold his for a Golf...
  9. Welcome @C10ugf +1 for seeing pics of the MINI ๐Ÿ˜Š
  10. Here are a couple of snaps for anyone wondering what LEDs look like in the MINI
  11. So. I finally got the bulbs in. Here is what I learnt: The bulbs you need are type T5 If the bulbs don't come on, try the bulb in the holder in the reverse, so 'upside down'. Many LED bulbs are 'sided' You don't need the holder. Pull the old ones out directly and push the new ones in. As with all bulbs, don't touch them with your bare hands. If you do, wipe them with alcohol before you fit them. When you refit the mirror assembly offer the TOP EDGE in first. There is a little actuating arm which activates a micro switch to switch off the lamps when you close the visor. This is easily damaged It's well worth the effort
  12. Hi @Jillpx1 , this F56 looks awesome ! Love it i used to be around the Irish forums back in the day, the MINI Club of Ireland was huge. Ive got a bronze plaque from them somewhere, ill have to dig it out

  16. PS - I clambered under the car tonight at each corner, no sign of any leaks.
  17. So I spoke to my friendly independent today, whom I have used for years and trust. They said they've had spongy brake pedal issues with a few BMW cars and it's almost always the ABS pump that needs to be bled. Apparently they hook up a diagnostic machine to the car and put it in to bleed mode. It pulses the ABS pump and tells the mechanic which corner to unlock, at which time. It's booked in for a week Sat. While I'm on I'll give them 4 x new bleed nipples. Might as well! I'll post back the results. So far it's the cheapest thing to try.
  18. I found a website last year that showed all of the operating temperatures for brake pads of various types and brands but can I heck find it since. Obviously the high performance ones donโ€™t start working until they are hot but standard ones donโ€™t work in the same range. Some are that far apart that you would need three different pads to cover the whole range. im away for a couple of nights but will try it when I get home (if nobody beats me to it)
  19. Earlier
  20. Followed you back, didn't realise you were already following me ๐Ÿ˜„
  21. @f56_dan itโ€™s jillpx1 โ˜บ๏ธ
  22. Thank you! It's a shame you live as far away as Northern Ireland though. What's your Instagram tag?
  23. @f56_dan thank you! Iโ€™m pretty sure I follow you on Instagram, yours is amazing! Itโ€™s definitely my favorite colour!
  24. @Kettlepoti actually live in Northern Ireland! We do have a pretty decent mini club thankfully with a lot of shows
  25. Oo another F56! I must say I'm jealous, looks unreal that ๐Ÿ˜„ Welcome ๐Ÿ‘‹
  26. While I remember - this helped me with the main map lights in the roof console. https://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/MINI_R56/101-INTERIOR-Roof_Switch_Replacement/101-INTERIOR-Roof_Switch_Replacement.htm I took the whole console off, but if you prepare in advance with bulb tweezers or a 9 mm vaccum or rubber hose youโ€™ll not need to remove the console.
