Professional grade spark plug socket from Germany for the discriminating MINI owner seeking high quality tools. Designed to fit the new bi-hex pattern of the factory spark plugs.  Sold each. 

Use this socket for the 'right tool' for the job! The spark plugs on the MINI are recessed deep in the cylinder head and requires a deep thin-walled socket. The spark plug themselves are 12-point bi-hex pattern where a standard 6-point hex socket will not work.

Fits the following models:

2007-2013 R56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop
2008-2014 R55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Clubman
2009-2015 R57 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertible
2012-2015 R58 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Coupe
2012-2015 R59 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Roadster
2011-2016 R60 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Countryman

14mm Bi-Hex deep socket (12-point), 3/8" drive, 'narrow body' with a magnetic ring to retain the spark plug. The magnet never wears out unlike the rubber rings that shrink over time and lose retention.  We recommend a 'locking' extension to get the socket off the spark plug after you torque the plug.

Torque spark plugs to 23 + 3 Nm or 16.9 + 2.2 ft-lbs (unlubricated).

MINI (2002-Current)

Quality Spark Plug Socket for the MINIs using the new 14mm Bi-Hex spark plugs. Slender design to fit the tight spark plug tubes.  Sold each.

Question:
I need manual tools to replace 3 Ignition coils and 4 pre gapped spark plugs for a 2010 MINI Cooper Convertible. Do you have these available to order? What manual wrenches will I need?
Answer:
The OEM plugs use a special plug socket called a "bi-hex" which is a 12 point socket for spark plugs - we have the factory tool listed on the site as part number G2NME3009

other part numbers you might need are

OEM Spark Plugs: G2NMK3402 (set of 4)
OEM Ignition Coils: G2NME3016 (sold ea.)

Question:
What size drive extension does this take? You mention a "locking extension". What manufacturer & model?
Answer:
Use a standard 3/8 drive like any other spark plug socket. Just about every tool manufacturer makes inlcudes locking extensions.
