How To Change Your Turbo Charged Mini Cooper S Oil 2007+
Feel like saving yourself some money by changing your MINI Coopers oil? This guide will show you how-to change your own oil and oil filter.
6 Quarts 5w30 oil (uses 4.4 quarts)
Oil Filter Kit
Socket set with a long extension… I used two together to reach the filter cap.
8mm hex socket or T-50 hex head oil drain plug.
8mm wrench to remove the coolant tank.
27mm socket for the oil filter cap.
Towels and cleaning supplies.
Oil Catch Pan
Sheet for catching the stray oil.
Set the car up on ramps or on a secured jack.
Next I loosened the oil filler cap and unscrewed the 8mm hex socket or T-50 hex head for the oil drain. Not all the way! Put on rubber gloves and slide oil catch can underneith.
Now Reinstalled the oil drain plug (22.0 lbs/ft), and then the new filter and assembly(18.5 lbs/ft) added 4.4 quarts (roughly) of engine oil(do not reuse the old seals and make sure to use the new drain plug washer).
