We have seen a lot of MINI Cooper S Transmission Weight that have way too much play in them. This part is also worn really badly on cars that have very high miles or it's missing all together, making it really hard to get into gear. This is a very easy part to replace that can make a huge difference in how the car shifts. These parts are also not lubed from the factory, so we highly recommend using a high quality grease on all the moving parts during assembly.
Note: You only need one per car and over all they last a long time when lubed well.
