This MINI Automatic Transmission Fluid is just what you need to do a flush on your Gen 1 or 2 Cooper S, Automatic Transmission.  This is the correct spec fluid, direct from MINI.  Normally, the transmission hold 6 qts. (dry), but when you're doing a flush, you can only get about 2 ½ - 3 qts. in, due to the fluid in the torque converter.  To do a more complete flush, you need to drive the car for a "day," and do it again.  You may even want to do it a third time, depending on how the fluid is looking.  Each time you drain it, you will see the color of the fluid go from a really dark red/brown to a brighter red color.  You can now be the judge.  A Bentley manual is helpful any time you're working on your MINI, but is lacking some information on this particular transmission flush.  See the below how-to for better details.  This is not a difficult job, but it comes in a harder skill level than most other jobs.

 

Our friends over at Motoring Alliance have a great how-to article that will help you a lot.  Take a read over here.  We also added a great photo of where & how to fill the transmission from the top.

 

Note: Sold as each, we recommend starting with 3 bottles, additional may be needed, as stated above.
