MINI Factory Oil Filter for the 3rd Generation MINIs - the same Mini Cooper Oil Filter used by the MINI dealers!  If you want to stay with the factory original parts, this is it!

Whether you need to do a 'system flush' on a brand new low mileage engine, or change your oil more frequently than the factory recommendation, this is the correct filter.

Fits the following models with the B36/B38 and B46/B48 engines:

2016-2022 F54 Clubman MINI Cooper, Cooper S and JCW models 
2015-2022 F55 Hardtop 4-Door MINI Cooper, Cooper S   
2014-2022 F56 Hardtop MINI Cooper, Cooper S and JCW models 
2016-2022 F57 Convertible MINI Cooper, Cooper S and JCW models 
2017-2022 F60 Countryman MINI Cooper, Cooper S and JCW models 

NOTES:

  • Available individually or in a convenient 6-pak.
  • MINI updated their model lineup with their 2020 models. The new face lifted 'lci' models (life cycle impulse) includes the new B36C and B46C engine (B46D for JCW models) which uses a different oil filter. Select accordingly.

Get the oil filter as part of an Oil Change Kit and save money!

Many feel the factory interval is too long and they change their oil and filter once if not twice between the recommended interval.

We recommend you change the engine oil more frequently than the factory recommendation. Anecdotal evidence suggest Turbochargers on the 2nd generation MINIs seemed to have more trouble-free miles when the oil is changed more frequently and we suspect the same will hold true for the 3rd generation F model MINIs. We recommend you change your oil every 5,000 mile or less.

MINI recommends:

  • Regularly check the engine oil leve after refueling
  • FULL SYNTHETIC motor oil with API SL or superior grade specification
  • BMW longlife-01 or BMW Longlife-01 FE+
  • Viscosity Grades: see notes below
  • NO oil additives

Dispose of the used oil and filter properly, please! And wipe that oil off the driveway before you track it into the house!

If you are performing the oil change, you will need the following tools:

  • This 32mm socket for the oil filter housing
  • A 13mm socket for the oil filter housing drain plug
  • A 17mm socket for the engine oil drain plug
  • An a ratchet, extension, and maybe a universal joint

Torque values:

  • Oil Filter Housing 25Nm or 18.4 ft-lbs
  • Filter Housing Oil Drain Plug  5NM or 3.7 ft-lbs or 44.5 INCH-lbs
  • Oil Pan Drain Plug 20Nm or 14.8 ft-lbs
