PostSubject: MINI UK - Recall Confirmed   17th January 2012, 17:46

MINI UK can confirm that a Worldwide Recall Campaign has been announced.

This recall only affects certain Cooper S and John Cooper Works models with a particular additional water pump. Other models will either have a different version of the pump or no pump at all if the car doesn’t have a turbo charger.

In the UK 29,868 cars will be recalled. Customers will receive a letter inviting them to have the additional water pump replaced at their MINI dealership. The replacement takes about an hour and is free of charge for the customer.

Your safety is our top priority and our customer care team is here to talk to you about any concerns or questions you have about your car. Please contact us on 0870 5050160 or customer.service@mini.co.uk

Thanks Ian. I don't think the Cooper D's - at least the earlier ones - have the pump as mine makes no noise after switching off whereas you can here it clearly on an 'S'.

Apart from the recall I see MINI have jumped on the band wagon by using a premium rate phone number Rolling Eyes

Surely you would call your dealership - wouldn't you?

Not everyone exhibits common sense Laughing Laughing I'm still surprised they've got away with the dodgy power steering/gearboxes on early first gens mind...
