Rear Mount Mini Cooper Bike Rack Mounting Kit for MINIs without the Luggage Prep option - an innovative solution for carrying one bike on the rear of your Mini.  Bike Holder available separately. If you need to carry only one bike, this is the perfect solution!

The F-series Minis have two plastic access covers on the rear bumper, but only one threaded receptacle for the tow hook on one side. This kits adds the hardware for the threaded receptacle on the other side, plus two stainless steel rods for mounting the Bike Holder. The Mounting System and Bike Holder are sold separately. (If your MINI has two threaded receptacles on the rear bumper, you have the Luggage Prep option so you should order G3NMA1178 instead.)

Question:
Does the plate with the threaded receiver for Coopers without the luggage option need to be installed be a body shop? Will the plate rust over time?  Will I be able to snap the hole cover back on when the rack is removed?
Answer:
It can be done at home but this work should be done by someone familiar with MINIs. Mounting the plate will require removing the rear bumper - which means removing the taillights and rear wheel arches too. There is a template included that will mark where mounting holes must be drilled into the aluminum understructure of the bumper.  - Please see these INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS to determine if this is something you're confident doing or if it needs to be taken to a shop.

The plates are coated - not bare metal so they are resistant to rust, as well as the rods are stainless steel, no rust to worry about, and your tow hook cover will still snap in place when the rods are removed.

Question:
I’m looking for this type of bike rack but my car only has one hole in the back. Do you have something that fits my New MINI Cooper 2006?
Answer:
Sorry no, the 2006 R50 MINI Cooper does not have accommodations for the optional 2nd port on the back bumper.

Question:
My New MINI Cooper never had the luggage prep option. I need to know if it is possible to put a 2 bike holder on to the rods as I need to transport 2 bikes at a time.
Answer:
Sorry no, the G3NMA1180 bike rack mounting system is designed for one bike only due to weight considerations.
The rods are probably not long enough to accept 2 bike holders especially since the pedals and handlebars take extra spacing.

Question:
Question: the part G3NMA1180/Mini-Cooper-Bike-Rack-Mounting-System-Gen3-F56 seems to be able to fit my R56 Mini Countryman 2012 but your selector says different. I have two screws behind the two caps on the rear bumper. Can you verify this with me?
Answer:
Hello  and thank you for your email and for your interest with Mini Mania and our products.

Unfortunately, the G3NMA1180 Bike Rack Mounting System is not compatible with the R60 Countryman.  Our Mini Countryman Bike Rack OEM R60 R61 Countryman Paceman will fit your MINI.
