Scheduled servicing of the supercharger is important to keep in the best condition and to prevent failure. The R53 and R52 Mini Cooper S models are fitted with an Eaton supercharger. The supercharger is lubricated and partially cooled by oil located in two reservoirs within the supercharger housing. BMW / Mini do not offer a change of this oil / service of this part as part of the service schedule. However other manufacturers vehicles utilising the same supercharger recommend servicing at 40,000 miles.
It is not uncommon for the seals to weep on the supercharger allowing oil to escape. Most enthusiasts therefore recommend servicing every 40,000 miles to keep this oil fresh and topped up- preventing failure of the supercharger components. These superchargers are one of the most expensive components on the vehicle and used units can provide their own issues. Service your vehicles supercharger using our comprehensive kit, prevent failure of the unit.
Our comprehensive kit includes all the parts you will need to carry out a full service of the supercharger off of the vehicle. Our parts (developed by working on these vehicles), coupled with our thorough install pictorial and video instructions allow you to carry out this service, providing the ultimate reassurance. We recommend removing the supercharger from the vehicle to service, we believe this is the most thorough way, all our components included here allow you to do this replacing all consumables, gaskets and parts which will likely need replacing along the way. We recommend refilling the supercharger off of the vehicle through the drain plugs, we don't advocate removing any of the casting of the supercharger as we feel this is more likely to introduce contaminates.Our comprehensive kit includes the following.
