sale on MINI Car Parts

Manual Reference: It is recommended to consult a proper repair manual like the Bentley Workshop Manual for MINI Cooper when completing this install.

Note: We recommend installation of this kit by someone with the correct tools and knowledge. A McPherson Strut Compressor tool is needed to disassemble the front struts and complete this installation. Many automotive repair shops have such a tool and it is recommended that this installation be completed by a shop with this tool. You should check with your shop to make sure they have this tool before attempting this installation.

Front Struts - Left Side:
1. Raise the front of the MINI and support in a safe manner (preferably on an vehicle lift)

2. Remove the front wheels

3. Release the abs cable and brake hose from the retaining eyes.

4. If your MINI is equipped with head lamp leveling, locate the sensor on the left lower control arm. Mark the location of the bracket and remove it using a 10mm socket.

5. Remove the sway bar link by removing the upper and lower joints. Use an Allen wrench to hold the shaft and a 16mm wrench to remove the nut.
