This is how my morning went.

Oh. Oh, no...



Thatā€™s the Getrag 6 speed manual out of my 2004 MINI Cooper S, and, what Iā€™m holding in my hand, my friends, is the mounting ear for the clutch slave cylinder.

Itā€™s not supposed to do that.

I finally got around to replacing the clutch in my MINI this week, and it was going very, very smoothly until the transmission slipped off the jack as I was maneuvering it out from under the car, and landed square on the flange. It fell maybe 8 inches, but the angle was perfect.


My buddy the welder is on his way over to see what we can do.

BTW, ModMiniā€™s videos are great guides if youā€™re planning on changing the clutch on your own MINI -
