Mini Cooper Engine Install Part 1

This is Part 1 of the reinstall the engine and transmission into my R56 Mini Cooper S. I show how to avoid damage to the AC lines as well as the clutch hydraulics as you install the engine. Honestly, I don’t feel this job is as bad as it looks. With the front end removed, installing the engine seemed very easy to me. Not to mention it’s only held in by 2 fasteners. Well, those and another mount under the engine that keeps it from rotating.

Anyway I hope this information is helpful if you’ve removed the engine on your Mini and need to reinstall it.

I had some help with editing on this one from Javan Hovind.

Yes, there will be more #FairmontProject videos. I’m looking for help with editing the content I’ve already shot. Once that’s sorted out, I plan to start posting Fairmont videos in addition to the regular Friday repair videos.
