Research on Struts for Mini Cooper
Struts and shocks do not have to be checked and replaced at certain specific mileage intervals, so it is important to understand the warning signs that associated with failing struts and shocks. This is integral to your safety as well as the safety of the passengers in your car. Over time, struts and shocks wear out and the implication of failure could be dangerous. Getting new struts and shocks in your car can make you stop up to 10 feet sooner, while providing you with better driver control and vehicle stability.
Strut and Shock Warning Signs
There are certain signs that indicate that you need a Mini Cooper strut replacement, including:
Excessive Bouncing - Coil springs are part of the suspension system in your vehicle. If there are shocks in your car's design, the coil springs are bound to be mounted between the frame and the wheels of your vehicle. Struts, on the other hand, are essentially a coil spring and shock absorber in one single piece of equipment. When driving over a bump, your vehicle bounces on the coil springs, whether you have struts or shocks or not. In both cases, the shock absorbers prevent your car from bouncing incessantly. This means, if you drive over a rough patch of road or a bump and your car continues to bounce, it is a sign that you need to replace your strut or shock.
Leaking Fluid - Every strut and shock has a piston and hydraulic fuel. When driving over a rough stretch of road or a bump, they compress and cause the piston to push against the hydraulic fluid, which then absorbs the piston force. In some cases, that fluid can leak out of these parts. It is normal to have a little leakage, but when most of the strut or shock looks wet and oily, you should worry and get them replaced.
Other warning signs of worn or failing struts and shocks include tire "cupping", nose dives and rear end squats when you accelerate. It could be Mini Cooper strut mount problems or other issues that need to be taken care of immediately.
Recall of the Mini Cooper Due to Rear Strut Issues
In 2003, the Mini Cooper was recalled as on certain vehicles, there could have been failure of the lower screw connection of the rear struts to the chassis. The top, or head, of the screw that secured this connection could also break. If the problem was left unattended over time, it could cause the remaining portion of the screw to break, depending on driving conditions. If it broke, the chassis could lean directly on the tire and diminish the driver's ability to control the vehicle, which in turn would increase the risk of a crash.
