Mini Cooper Oil Leak Repairs

When I bought my 2007 Mini Cooper S, it’s main issue was a massive oil leak. I came to find out that the most likely cause of this leak was the oil feed line going to the turbo.

In this video I show you how to replace the oil feed line with an upgraded unit. I also show how to seal the leaks in the oil cooler housing. These repairs will go a long way to fix or prevent oil leaks on the front of the N14 engine found in the R56 Mini.

If you want to see how to remove the front end of a Mini for easier access to the engine, watch this video: https://youtu.be/2RfQsOwBZHk
