lift the paddle 2 at the centre point of 

the bonnet.

When working in the engine 

compartment, ensure that 

the windscreen wiper stalk 

is in the park position.

Risk of injury.

Before performing any 

action in the engine com-

partment, the ignition must 

be switched off (please see 

the information on “Starting, stop-

ping the engine” in Section 2).

Please note when work-

ing close to the engine that 

it may be hot. The engine 

cooling fan may also start 

at any moment. The 

 warning 

light in the engine compartment re-

minds you of this.
Risk of injury.

4.3

BONNET 

(2/2)

Closing the bonnet

Before closing the bonnet, make sure 

that nothing has been left in the engine 

compartment.
To close the bonnet, replace the stay 4 

in its holder 5. Hold the middle of the 

bonnet and guide it down to one foot 

(30 cm) above the closed position, then 

release. It will latch automatically under 

its own weight.

After carrying out any work 

in the engine compart-

ment, check that nothing 

has been left behind (cloth, 

tools, etc.).

These may damage the engine or 

cause a fire.

Ensure that the bonnet is 

properly locked.

Check that nothing is pre-

venting the catch from lock-

ing (gravel, cloth, etc.).

In the event of even a slight 

impact involving the radia-

tor grille or bonnet, have 

the bonnet lock checked by 

an approved dealer as soon as pos-

sible.

–  Remove the dipstick and wipe with a 

clean, lint-free cloth;

–  push the dipstick in as far as it will 

go (for vehicles equipped with a cap-

type dipstick C, screw the cap in as 

far as it will go);

–  take out the dipstick again;

–  read the level: it should never fall 

below minimum mark A or exceed 

maximum mark B.

Once the operation has been com-

pleted, ensure that the dipstick is 

pushed in as far as it will go or that 

the “cap-type dipstick” is completely 

screwed in.

Reading the oil level

The oil level should be read with the ve-

hicle on level ground, after the engine 

has been switched off for some time.

The dipstick must be used to read 

the exact oil level and make sure 

that the maximum level has not been 

exceeded (risk of engine damage). 

Refer to the following pages.

The instrument panel display only 

alerts the driver when the oil level is at 

its minimum.

It is normal for an engine to use oil for 

lubrication and cooling of moving parts 

and it is normal to top up the level be-

tween oil changes.

However, contact your approved 

Dealer if more than 0.5 litres is being 

consumed every 600 miles (1,000 km) 

after the running in period.

Oil change frequency: check the oil 

level from time to time and certainly 

before any long journey to avoid the 

risk of damaging your engine.

ENGINE OIL LEVEL: general information

C

Exceeding the maximum 

engine oil level
Under no circumstances 

must the maximum fill 

level B be exceeded: risk of damage 

to the engine and catalytic con-

verter.

If the level exceeds the maximum 

level, do not start your vehicle and 

contact an authorised dealer.

In order to prevent splashback, it is 

recommended that a funnel be used 

when topping up/filling with oil.

Before performing any 

action in the engine com-

partment, the ignition must 

be switched off (please see 

the information on “Starting, stop-

ping the engine” in Section 2).

4.5

Topping up/filling

The vehicle must be parked on level 

ground and the engine should be 

stopped and cold (for instance, before 

the engine is started up for the first time 

in the day).

– Unscrew cap 1;
–  top up the level (as a guide, the ca-

pacity between the minimum and 

maximum reading on the dipstick 2 

is between 1.5 and 2 litres, depend-

ing on the engine);

–  wait for approximately 10 minutes to 

allow the oil to flow into the engine;

–  check the level using the dipstick 2 

(as described above).

Once the operation has been com-

pleted, ensure that the dipstick is 

pushed in as far as it will go or that 

the “cap-type dipstick” is completely 

screwed in.

ENGINE OIL LEVEL: topping up, filling 

(1/3)

Do not exceed the max level and 

do not forget to refit cap 1 and dip-

stick 2.

In order to prevent splashback, it is 

recommended that a funnel be used 

when topping up/filling with oil.

OIL CHANGE

Never run the engine in an 

enclosed space as exhaust 

gases are poisonous.

Engine oil change: if you 

are changing the oil when 

the engine is hot, be care-

ful not to scald yourself as 

the oil drains.

Filling: take care when 

topping up the oil that 

no oil drips onto engine 

components - risk of fire. 

Remember to refit the cap securely 

as there is a risk of fire if oil splashes 

onto hot engine components.

When working in the engine 

compartment, ensure that 

the windscreen wiper stalk 

is in the park position.

Risk of injury.

Oil change

Service interval: refer to the 

Maintenance Service Booklet for your 

vehicle.

Oil change capacity

Please refer to the maintenance docu-

ment for your vehicle, or contact an au-

thorised dealer.

Always check the engine oil level using 

the dipstick, as explained previously (it 

should never fall below the minimum 

level, or be over the maximum level on 

the dipstick).

Consult your approved dealer at 

once if you notice an abnormal or 

repeated drop in any of the fluid 

levels.

Exceeding the maximum 

engine oil level
Under no circumstances 

should maximum filling level 

be exceeded: this could damage the 

engine and the catalytic converter.

If the level exceeds the maximum 

level, do not start your vehicle and 

contact an authorised dealer.

Please note when work-

ing close to the engine that 

it may be hot. The engine 

cooling fan may also start 

at any moment. The 

 warning 

light in the engine compartment re-

minds you of this.
Risk of injury.

4.8

Top this level up when cold before it 

reaches the MINI mark.
Frequency of checking coolant level
Check the coolant level regularly
 

(very severe damage is likely to be 

caused to the engine if it runs out of 

coolant).
If the level needs to be topped up, only 

use products approved by our Technical 

Department which ensure:
–  protection against freezing;
–  an anti-corrosion protection for the 

cooling system.

Consult your approved dealer at 

once if you notice an abnormal or 

repeated drop in any of the fluid 

levels.

No operations should be 

carried out on the cooling 

circuit when the engine is 

hot.

Risk of burns.

Replacement interval
Refer to the Maintenance Document for 

your vehicle.

 Coolant

With the engine switched off and on 

level ground, the level when cold must 

be between the MINI and MAXI marks 

on reservoir 1.

LEVELS 

(1/3)

When working in the engine 

compartment, ensure that 

the windscreen wiper stalk 

is in the park position.

Risk of injury.

Before performing any 

action in the engine com-

partment, the ignition must 

be switched off (please see 

the information on “Starting, stop-

ping the engine” in Section 2).

4.9

Level 2
It is normal for the level to drop as the 

brake shoes become worn, but it must 

never drop lower than the “MINI" warn-

ing line.
If you wish to check the disc and drum 

wear yourself, you should obtain the 

document explaining the checking pro-

cedure from the manufacturer’s net-

work or website.

Topping up
After any operation on the hydraulic cir-

cuit, a specialist must replace the brake 

fluid.
Only use fluids approved by our 

Technical Department (and taken from 

a sealed container).

Replacement interval
Refer to the Maintenance Document for 

your vehicle.

 Brake fluid

The level should be read with the engine 

switched off and on level ground.
This should be checked frequently, 

and immediately if you notice even the 

slightest loss in braking efficiency.
