just booked my car in for first service & was advised that there is a recall notice outstanding for the high pressure pump cover. I didn't query what the details were on this but thought people would want to know.

No sure if it's model-specific but i'm in a 07/2015 Cooper S Auto

I had something replaced to do with the fuel pump. I'll look out the job sheet tonight. It was replaced end of last year as an enhancement.

I believe mine was done some months ago when I took it in for the door rubbing fix.
One of those recalls they do when doing something else.

Mine was changed last week when it when in for service.
The recall was for "F54, F55, F56, B38, B48, Retrofit High Pressure Pump Cover"
Why the recall, I dunno ?

There also was a recall for a new software update. "F5X, B36, B38, Programmed DME ."

Notices were going to be sent out, but I just happened to be in for service before that happened. Timing is everything !

Does everyone simply let the dealer do anything they want to your car? Recall or technical fix.....whatever, my dealer better not do anything I don't know about or approve of "before" touching my car! I can't believe a dealer would automatically do things to a car without explaining things to the owner first & getting approval from the owner!

@02fantastic, I disagree with your statement. Standard service admin procedure is to contact the customer as in my case and go over everything with the customer that they are going to work on before touching the car. No issue here. Best part, everything is under warranty. A non issue from stand point.

You didn't read what I said. Some people responded that things were done to their MINIs when in for routine maintenance. I would be fine with legitimate fixes if I was aware of it before the work was done "and" as long as I approved the work beforehand.

And as for warranty work, I had a Jeep in for routine service one time & when I got the bill it noted the entire transaxle had been replaced under warranty....I had not been told of this & my Jeep was just fine....just because it's warranty work doesn't automatically mean your car needs the work. Dealers make money on warranty work....it's the owner's right to know & decide whether to have the work done! By the way, this particular Jeep dealer is no longer in business!

Sorry about that. But personally I have never had a bad experience whereby anyone fixes something without my approval. If it happened the other way, they will eat the cost, not me if it was not under warranty. Cheers.

I understand....I'm touchy about these things due to what happened to my Jeep.....see my updated response above.

Thx,

John

Googled the DME as I wasn't sure what this was, this would've been another fault that my F56 Cooper D had as there were numerous times where it wouldn't start on the first try - it would just tick over like I had no fuel...

Just to clarify, I did have fuel when it happened - not like earlier this year.. :nerd:

Just back from first oil/filter change service on my Cooper F56. 13,500 miles, nearly two years.

I was shown a work list of what they intended to do before I left the car so if I had not agreed with something I could have raised an objection then.

All my required recall work has been done but there was no mention of a software update on the fob "printout".
I did ask that they checked this but they confirmed it was not required. My car is a May/June 2014 build.

Brakes, tyres and everything else are fine but I asked them to recheck the rear dampers (as JB had his checked at his last car checkover!), one of which (yes, just one!) they changed last year but I have still been getting an annoying clonk occasionally.

A new design of damper is now available so they are going to change both next week.

The courtesy car was a gutless Countryman "One". No thanks!

Overall, a very efficient operation.

Haha I got a Countryman One as a curtesy car last time mine went in... I have told them to never give me that again.

I am not sure, but the software update I received could be only for Canada and would not affect other countries. ? Perhaps why you had no update in your country ? I was told that this was a recall for software update.
My "2015" was a Aug. 2014 build.

Prior to this software update, I had another one done in Oct. 2015.
What do these software do for the car's performance ? I have no idea.

interesting thought that they might do jobs on warranty to make money; in my experience in the uk dealers are tightly scrutinised to ensure they dont do this and sometimes have difficulty persuading the manufacturer to allow a warranty job=we had this with hyundai, but never mini. Mine is in today for new rear shocks and door seals-there is slight marking of the paint-i filmed it but there were a few marks before i realised. They may spray the door jamb on inspection;very happy with the dealer's response so far-let you know tomorrow when i get it back.

Some recalls are just that; a recall that is deemed a safety issue and has to be done by law; (at least in the uk) think there was one with the seat backs in the mini, but not aware of any others but am sure someone will know-if you didnt have that done and further down the line there was an accident............

Got a petrol PACEMAN cooper-pretty thing in brown with lovely alloys but a little slow-nicely refined though. i love any courtesy car --always interesting to drive something else-evn if it only serves to make you appreciate what you bought!

I did hint that my wife might be tempted to buy a jcw if they made my loaner one of those as she is VERY interested BUT service dept dont seem to communicate a lot with the sales dept! (thank heavens!)

Hi,

I have troubles with my engine it shakes sometimes at low throttle. No code. And the shop doesn't find the problem. Cooper s automatic gearbox.

Does somebody know what the recall does, why it needs to be done , maybe what it could do if not replaced. ? I think the problem of my engine is high pressure pump related.


Let me know , thanks.

I didnt get any details of what this recall was for or why the part had to be replaced. There was no paperwork provided after the service was complete. My car is an S auto and doesnt have the issue you describe so i very much doubt this is linked in sny way
