Engine oil
The engine oil consumption is dependent on
driving style and driving conditions.
Check the engine oil level regularly, e.g. when
refueling.
Checking engine oil level
1.
With the vehicle's engine at normal operat-
ing temperature, i.e. after uninterrupted
driving for at least 6 miles/10 km, park the
vehicle on a level surface.
2.
Switch off the engine.
3.
Pull the dipstick out after approx. 5 minutes
and wipe it off with a lint-free cloth, paper
towel or similar material.
4.
Carefully push the dipstick all the way into
the guide tube and pull it out again.
The oil level should be between the two
marks on the dipstick.

Replacing components
236
Starting-aid terminals
Only charge the battery in the vehicle when the
engine is off. Connections, refer to Jump-start-
ing on page
237
.
Charger
The use of a charger ensures that the battery has
a sufficient charge even when it is used for fre-
quent short-distance drives, for example. Charg-
ers that have been developed especially for the
vehicle and adapted to the vehicle electrical sys-
tem are available at your MINI dealer.
Disposal
After replacing old batteries, return the
used batteries to your MINI dealer or to a
recycling center. Maintain the battery in an
upright position for transport and storage.
Always secure the battery against tipping over
during transport.

Indicator and warning lamps
Lights up in red:
Battery is no longer being charged.
Alternator malfunction.
Switch off all unnecessary electrical consumers.
Have the battery checked without delay.
Lights up in yellow:
Battery charge level very low, battery
aged, or battery not securely con-
nected.
Charge it by taking a longer drive or by using an
external charger. If the display appears again,
have the battery checked as soon as possible.
Fuses
Do not attempt to repair a blown fuse or
replace it with a fuse of a different color or
Ampere rating. To do this could cause a fire in
the vehicle resulting from a circuit overload.
Have the fuse changed only by a MINI dealer or
a workshop that has specially trained personnel
working in accordance with the specifications of
the MINI manufacturer.
