"you'd be surprised how hard it is to pick one of these up at your local hardware shop." The man isn't kidding. Let alone picking one up which fits in the space where the filter is.

Details

This works on all Gen1 MINI models that require a 36mm 6 point socket to remove the filter cover. To avoid cover damage never use a 12 point common socket. The socket is designed to function with all 1/2" drive mechanics ratchet or a 3/8" drive with a 1/2" adapter. You'll be surprised how hard it is to find a 36mm socket at your local hardware store....better be safe and pick one of these up if you are going to start doing your own oil changes in your MINI Cooper.

Features:
- Engineered for use with impact drivers
- High-torque, 6-point opening grips flat sides of fasteners, not corners, preventing round-off
- Extra-deep broach accommodates longer fasteners
- Large, high-contrast size marking is permanently laser etched and easy to read, even in low light
- Made of premium chrome vanadium steel with a protective black phosphate finish

Description

The TEKTON 1/2 in. Drive x 36 mm Deep Impact Socket is engineered for use with impact drivers. It has a 6-point opening that snugly fits the hex shape of fastener heads, allowing it to apply maximum torque without slipping. To prevent round-off under stress, it grips the flat sides of fastener heads rather than the corners. Easy to read even in low light, the large, high-contrast size marking is permanently laser etched into the steel surface. The through-hole in the drive end locks onto the tang of impact wrenches or drivers so it won't fall off or stick on fastener heads. To protect against rust and corrosion, the black phosphate finish absorbs and holds oil, repelling moisture.

This 36mm Oil Filter Cover Removal Socket is one of the many MINI Cooper Parts and Accessories that we carry and will fit the following MINI Cooper Models and Years:


Gen1 MINI:

R50 MINI Cooper Hatchback: 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006

I have just received my sunshades for my Mini Cooper, I am over the moon they fit like a glove which is perfect for protecting us from the Australian sun. Many thanks a great purchase will definitely be buying more goodies for my car.

A note of appreciation from our MINI club...

This year we raised $1,091 for charity that we donated to the area food back and a local pet shelter. Your generous donation of merchandise helped make this possible. (I was very happy to have won the stubby antenna!)

Thank you again for your generosity and the great variety of merchandise you sent.

We had about 40 MINIs at the car show and great weather -- that got everyone in a generous mood and got us over the $1,000 goal. A fitting end to an awesome summer. Thank you again!

Love your business and your attempt to service MINI owners. One suggestion for you. When you feature a produce on the front of your emails each time, you should explain just exactly what the part is, what it does, and why a MINI owner would want to replace something on their car with it. All of us are not mechanics and might not recognize a picture of a part. As you do the site now, you always put these things in there and the copy is written as though everyone knows exactly what the part is for.

Another idea, what are the types of things that many MINI owners can do with their cars in terms of customization. Your site is so vast and the number of ideas so large, it's hard for the average person to get their arms around what you offer and why we should buy. You write as though we already know what we want when we come to your site. In actuality, many MINI owners who are not car-savvy don't even know what they might be looking for.

I hope this is helpful.

Best.
