White Roof Radio – The MINI Cooper Podcast

MINI Cooper Podcasting with db, Todd, Gabe, Chad & Brian

Woofcast #255

A bit of random chat before we get started, talking about tires and brakes. We are looking for those among us that have experienced tire pressure loss in run flats after sitting for a week or more. Todd’s MINI had 4 flat tires after MTTS and it just sat. Since he boosted them, he hasn’t experienced any loss at all.

Watch for us to get guys from Continental on the show soon. We had some great discussions with them at MTTS.

But not this week. For this week, it’s news of the week from Motoringfile.com.

Don’t forget to register for MTTS if you are going. At the very least, you check out the updates that were posted during the first 2.

If you are looking for the brake tool at Harbor Freight, you can find it here. I don’t know if it works, but for $4.00, it might be worth trying. They also have an air-powered unit that you can find here, if that’s how you roll.

Check back tomorrow when we talk about the cool fuel-saving features that we don’t get in the US.

  1. Todd: If all of your tires are down and yet fairly similar pressure, the tire pressure warning sensor will not show an error as it looks for a differential in rotation speed of the wheels not the specific pressure. Just a thought!

  2. Todd,

    You mentioned a tool you got at Harbor Freight for compressing the rear brake pistons. I’ve look here but haven’t see one that will compress and turn the piston. If you can post the part number of the tool you got that would be great.

    Cheers

    Steve
