  1. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi all Hoping somebody can help diagnose a couple of issues I'm having with an '05 R53 JCW I recently bought. Problem 1 - a loud rubbing / wearing sort of noise when I turn left or right and apply power. The noise is constant & isn't a knock or clunk. Doesn't make the noise without power...

  4. R53 General
    Bought a 53 plate cooper s with 113k miles. Drove really well on the test drive so decided to take it. 40 miles down the road I went to change gear and the clutch stayed down for a couple seconds. The car now acts as though the clutch is pressed in even though it isn't and the pedal feels fine...

    Anyone ever had to replace the middle section of the clutch line from the master cylinder to the slave, it runs down the firewall from the drivers bulkhead down to above the slave cylinder as a flexible hose?

    Hi all, Newbie here, first post. :-) I decided to revisit my old hot hatch days and picked up a 54 plate Cooper S. The clutch bite point is right down at the floor - I have to press the pedal to the bulkhead and the bite point is an inch or two above that. I see that there are several...
