Q: Bad clutch

asked by on

The clutch is not working.

Hi there. There are many reports of your Mini Cooper’s clutch prematurely wearing out. This is a manufacturer’s defect and is a costly repair. Along with a new clutch, a new fly wheel would need to be installed as well. I’d strongly suggest having a certified technician take a closer look into this to diagnose why your clutch is not working and suggest a repair.
