Mini Cooper Oil Leak Repairs (R56/N14) -ETCG
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.
