I know 06 BINIs are prone to leaking from the thermostat housing. Use the green button on the left of the message dialog box typing area to post a picture. Picture size has to be < 3K.

It would help if you include what year and model mini you are asking about. Being as they were made from 1959 to the present.

"How can anything bigger be mini?"

Hello Everyone, 

I am new to the forum, and somewhat new to fixing Mini Coopers. 

I have discovered leaks on my driveway. Low and behold it I traced the source back to this part and it seems to be where coolant is dripping from. 

Could anyone please point me in the right direction? I need to know what part this is as the repair manual doesn't give a good diagrammatic picture. 

Please let me know what part or generally what to look for so I can start this repair. 

This picture was taken underneath the vehicle looking up at the engine - almost in line with the steering rack or in the vicinity of the oil pan. I can only imagine it's attached to the motor that's why i was thinking some sort of freeze out plug. 

Help! please.

p.s. how do i add pictures?
