Air Filter And Electrical
Posted 07 September 2019 - 06:22 PM
Got my first mini. Currently has no air filter attached , the pipercross one is in the car. The filter has a gasket and a large spacer i assume needs used? But im not sure how to get it fitted as the filter has no built in bolt or nut so i cant work out how to bolt it to carb?
also my wipers, horn and rear fog dont work. Seller says wipers werent working, then came on and couldnt go off then finally worked normally but since delivery no joy. The horn itself is in bits so until i get a replacement cant say for sure of the issue

Some photos might help with the filter, there's usually some sort of fastener(s) holding the filter itself to a backplate that is just screwed to the carb's body before the filter's assembled.
The fog light will be fed off the headlight circuit so you need them on too. It's possible you could also need the ignition on.
The horn shares a supply with the headlight flasher, if that works it'll narrow down the fault to the stalk, horn or wire between them.
If the wipers don't turn off it'll be the park switch on the motor, but you could have another fault as well if they don't work at all.

Thanks for the reply
I will try and get some photos of filter today.
The fog switch doesnt light up however we did not try this with head light switch on so will try that. We could not get the headligjt flasher to work either
currently my wipers are both up mid screen and i can get them to move at all? If its the park switch wont the wipers come back on after cars been turned on or off?

Knowing the wire I'd basics is useful ...
Brown - unfused permanent live
Purple - fused permanent live
White - unfused ignition fed live
Green - fused ignition live
Black - earth
Blue - headlights (unfused on most Minis)
Red - sidelights
They're the basics trace colours give more detail for example blue becomes blue/white for high beam or blue/red to dipped after the headlight stalk.

i know wipers were stuck up so that could be park switch and horn i dont think is complete.
So will need to test wiper motor off car and horn also
I want to adjust carb and getting it running good first then start electrics as it will be time consuming and frustrating
