hey all! i'm very new towards the Classic mini world and i have manual rover mini with airbag. currently, whenever i'm cruising and if i were to step on the brake too sudden, the RPM will drop ridiculously low and stall. did check the vacuum hose and no leak or whatsoever. 

i know it has something to do with the adjustment in the fuel injector but may someone tell me what am i suppose to actually adjust? 


i've brought my another mini ( which has similar problem) to a mechanic and what he did was remove the fuel injector cover, and told me a certain pin was not moving into place which result in the car not able to resume its RPM or something. 


would appreciate if someone can guide me along the way!!cheers!

Does it happen when you push the pedal hard while standing still?

If you have an airbag I'm guessing you have the later type servo mounted to the master cylinder? If so a defective servo would be my best guess given the limited info provided
