This is how my morning went.
That’s the Getrag 6 speed manual out of my 2004 MINI Cooper S, and, what I’m holding in my hand, my friends, is the mounting ear for the clutch slave cylinder.
It’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, ModMini’s videos are great guides if you’re planning on changing the clutch on your own MINI -
