The Window Rattling Issue

Some of you out there are no doubt dealing with some rattles and buzzes – especially now that the weather has turned colder for most of us. One of the most common of these rattles is the dreaded window rattle.

I'm happy to report (with the help of a loyal reader) that there is now a fix! Apparently MINI has designed an additional buffer (to eliminate excess play) into all cars since 4/03 production. Further for those of us with cars produced before this date MINI has introduced a “Service Measure” to deal with the issue. You can actually take a look at the Service Measure yourself here.
