Description Reviews MINI Cooper Fuel Filter. MINI says that this filter is lifetime, but we don't think that MINI ever intended these cars to go past 100K! We have started to see some that have come out after 100K and they are almost black. To date, we have not had any issues with lack of fuel due to the filter being clogged, but as more people start to build go-fast motors, it's a good idea to replace this filter! This is not a super hard job, with no special tools needed; but it's always best to know what you're doing as it's messy and you have to deal with open fuel. A Bentley Manual is very helpful in this job as well as all aspects of the car. It's best to change it when the tank is close to empty as possible. This filter fits all Generation 2 cars, Cooper or Cooper S (R55, R56, R57, R58, & R59). Will not fit Countryman or Paceman. Comes with all needed seals & o-rings. Aftermarket filer that is a reboxed OEM part at a price savings! 1 Review 5 HUGE DIFFERENCE Posted by drew cook on 15th Aug 2018 Filter made a big difference in how my car idles and runs. Would definitely recommend this. Did mine at 65k miles and i would highly recommend a good pair of channel locks to save you some sweat.
