For the Rear rotors of the Mini Cooper & S, see NMB2009.
See note below on production date changes.
NOTE: There are different rotors for production dates up to 07/2006, and for 07/2006 and later. This is due to the change in lug bolt size from M12 to M14 which occured in July of 2006. For production dates of 07/2006 and later, see G2NMB3000.
If your brake wear warning light is illumninated, see replacement sensors.
If you need to replace the set screw that holds the rotor in place, see NMB7603.
See Brake Upgrades for options with brake upgrades.
Brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years. See ATE Performance Brake Fluid for replacement brake fluid. ATE® Type 200 Amber is a high quality performance fluid that will last much longer than the standard DOT4 fluid. This is an ABS friendly fluid.
ATE® TYPE 200 Amber has a dry boiling point of 536F and a wet boiling point of 396F which far exceeds standard brake fluids meeting the DOT 4 requirements. This fluid is NOT SILICONE and is compatible with conventional brake fluid. 100% synthetic fluid is specifically designed to resist the high temperatures of racing brakes and yet very suitable for daily driving.
