"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:

Customers' comments

This is a great company and they strive for the best customer service. I had some little problems with both of my orders, but once I sent out an email, everything was totally fixed. I love the customer service and they really try hard to please everyone. I love the products that I receive from them as well. Everything is flawless. Great job Out Motoring. I'll definitely be back for future items.

Excellent fit. I bought the matte black to try and match the rest of the trim and it looks factory installed.

Removing the OE chrome grill "nuts" was a bit of a pain, so I elected to just snap the plastic threads off rather than attempt to remove them. I wouldn't plan on keeping the OE grill as the plastic threads and stamped nuts are practically destroyed no matter how gentle you are.

The upper grill snaps in and use the same fasteners as the OE. The new stamped nuts can be a bit annoying, just seat the nut on the ball of your thumb and turn. Once the nut cuts into the plastic use a nut-driver to snug up--don't over tighten.

The lower grill just snaps in. I cleaned and plasti coted the bumper black, as you can see the bumper color behind the new grill--my car is red so it really stood out.

This grill makes the car look so much better and more up to date. I really like it.
