Inside Line: Remy

Remy warns that there are two different starters on the Mini One and the Mini Cooper 1.6 petrol versions from 2007 – one is a non-stop start and one is a stop start. Technicians need to ensure that they replace the correct one by always checking the OE number of the starter coming off the vehicle. The starters look very similar although the stop start version is about 3cm longer.

On the diesel versions of both these models there are also two starts, both stop start. A new stop start unit was introduced from June/July 2010 so technicians need to check that they do not fit the wrong one. The difference is obvious as visually the units look very different.
