MINI Exhaust Heat Shield! This exhaust shield bolts to the back of every gen 1 engine and covers the exhaust header to combat heat in the engine bay. All Cooper S's come with this part from the factory but over time and extreme heat the flange where it bolts can break so you might need a new one to replace it.
The real reason we carry this part is if you want to add it to your Cooper! All Coopers are missing this part from the factory and they have the coolant overflow tank right above the header. We get lots of people that complain that the tank is always empty cause the heat makes it evaporate over time. The overflow just just has a snap clip so it really doesn't keep any fluids in there long. By installing this part it will keep your engine bay cooler and help not keep fluid in your tank but keep heat out of all the other parts to make the engine life longer.
This kit comes with a new MINI heat shield along with the two bolts needed to install it. It also has the clip for the O2 sensor wire.
