Looked at my MINI Saturday week ago, only to see the passenger side headlamp washer missing.

Seems the high pressure nozzle had fractured, loosing the end of itself and the chrome trim.
They're probably on a country lane in Surrey, Sussex, or on the edge of the M23!
I wandered around Bridges breakers yard at Pease Pottage, in the rain, but no MINI's to be seen for a donor part.
Tried Euro Car Parts, but had to wait until Tuesday to get prices etc., picked up parts last Saturday.

Good news is it's a really easy DIY job, although the clip holding the jet to the lamp snapped off, it's secured with a couple of cable ties.

MINI has also had a cracked windscreen replaced at Autoglass recently, good job done but beware - their back office booking system is a shambles.

Two new runflats from Crawley Just Tyres, and a recent MOT, tax, insurance and TLC-XL - it's been an expensive month or two!

Hi Folks, and thanks for the welcome.
The SCNM website seems to have gone quiet, and MINI2 has changed a lot too, hence why I'm having a look on here. I wish I'd seen the Vines/Horsham run - that's really local for me.

I'm in Crawley, and have a 2005 MCS

Well the windscreen and the washer are bad luck maybe.
MINI needed one new front tyre, and as the other was nearly worn out, I chose to get both done together, swapping the new tyres to the rear.
Everything else, tax, MOT, insurance etc., is just the cost of running a car!
