Details

If you're planning on replacing your own brake pads or rotors (or both) you may find that the rear calipers are big hassle to get compressed so you can get a new fresh brake pad in and fit over the rotor. Over time as the pads and rotors wear down which allows the the piston to slowly move inward to help keep the pedal feel the same even when the pads are getting thinner. In order to get the piston back into position it needs to be compressed AND rotated much like a giant screw. Without this tool or one like it, it is nearly impossible. The Mini Cooper (Clubman, etc) has the parking brake system incorporated into the rear brake caliper, which is common with nearly all modern cars. This system allows you to hydraulically (via the brake pedal) apply the rear brakes while pulling the ebrake handle will mechanically move the piston. This combination requires the use of a special piston retracting tool when installing new rear brake pads because of the hybrid nature of the caliper. This brake caliper tool is specifically designed to lock into the Mini Cooper rear brake caliper piston and apply the required pressure as well as screw the piston back into the caliper housing in the same motion. There is really not another safe way to get the piston to back out and having this tool will save you hours or frustration if you end up needing to stop halfway through the the project to hunt down the correct tool (s) locally. This kit allows you to rotate various pistons back into their caliper housing when changing brake pads. This kit works with MINI, Ford, GM, Volkswagen, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Toyota, BMW, Audi and other vehicles.

I had a bit of disappointment today when my new hitch arrived - it was not the correct model for my car.
In retrospect, I looked back at the ordering page and found that it was my mistake but I could see why. I searched for a hitch for a Mini-S R53 and it took me to a 1001 which is for a non-S R50. The model numbers for the hitches and the cars they match up with were at the very bottom of the page, which I didn't see when ordering. It would have been very helpful if the drop-down menu had not just the hitch model number (1003) but the car model as well (R50, R53...) to help avoid this confusion.
It cost me return shipping and another week or more of wait. Not fun.

I needed a piece of clutch line for my '02 Cooper and you had it brand new for the best price. Bought and received in a reasonable amount of time, and it came in perfect condition. Put it on the car and that was that! Happy days ever since. Thanks again to the team at Outmotoring, keep up the good work.

Thanks guys! I know that my first order was a small one but it was a really big deal for my Mini Clubman S.

After getting my new tires installed the Wheel Well Cover came off leaving the wires exposed to objects coming of the road. If you live in the big city like I do, that is a really big deal. Potholes, construction debris and junk can ruin tires never mind the damage that cam be done to exposed well openings.

I ordered my new cover and it was here in two days!

Wow!

Thanks,
