Auto Mechanic Replacing Car Battery

If it’s time to get a new MINI Cooper battery or if you need to jump-start or check the battery in your MINI, you’re probably wondering about the MINI Cooper battery location. Okay, so where is the battery in a MINI Cooper? On most new models you’ll find the battery under the hood, near the rear of the engine compartment, or on the driver’s side. For older versions of the MINI Cooper S, the battery may be located in the trunk or cargo area beneath the floor mat. Learn more about the MINI Cooper battery location in this guide from the experts at MINI of Warwick, and if you need assistance or require professional MINI Cooper battery service, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with the team in our Service Center near Providence, RI.



How to Access Your MINI Cooper Battery

Now that you know the MINI Cooper battery location, you’ll need to find out how to access it. The MINI Cooper battery is secured at the rear of the engine compartment on the driver’s side beneath a protective covering. Here’s how to access your MINI Cooper battery:

  • Use an 8 mm socket to remove the three screws on top of the cover. 
  • Next to the rubber weatherstripping, you’ll find two larger fasteners holding the cover down. These need to be removed as well. This should allow you to lift the cover partially. 
  • Use a flat head screwdriver, or the broad end of a plastic trim tool to lift the weatherstripping. Locate the three twist-tab fasteners on the plastic cowling and turn them 90 degrees to release the cover. The battery should now be accessible.

If you find that this is more than you are willing to take on, feel free to visit MINI of Warwick. Our certified technicians will be happy to handle the job for you.
