Cooper 4-cyl

  • 54,327 miles
On 13 June 2011 a power steering fan shorted on my dauhters 2002 MINICooper S causing the radiator fan to stop. This caused the car to overheat. On 14 June 2011 car was repaired by a MINIcooper dealer after being towed. Parts replaced are fan housing with fan, fan with protecting grille, wiring set for power supply, cable strap. Power steering fan seized causing cooling fans not to work. Dealer replaced wiring harness (updated) to keep power steering fan and cooling fans seperate (as told by service rep). Old parts where not kept. This happened once.
