For a clutch you probably should contact James. It's not too hard to change it in the car but it's a lot easier if you've done it before. Since the clutch actuation mechanism is hydraulic it could be hydraulics or even parts of the mechanical linkages.

Clutch has failed.  What could be checked tested OK.  Guy thinks engine has to be pulled to replace the damaged parts in the clutch.

For certain suspension / alignment / tire and wheel, see the guy in Fisherman's Terminal near ballard. Just can't remember his new shop name....

Just curious, what kind of work do you need? Best, MSH

Try James Thompson at A Series NW in Graham. He seems to mostly have a Facebook presence.

New Mini or classic mini? Most folks on here have classic minis.
