I need some underhood dimensions...

JA: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your MINI Cooper. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Hello

Sorry for the extended wait time you've experienced, many experts on here are not always on line and if your question looks unusual then people may leave it for someone else with greater expierence and it then tends to slip down the list
I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

the information you need is available but sadly only from a dealership

MINI / BMW guard the workshop manuals closely and I have tried myself to get information out of them with no success as its all done on-line

so you need a dealer sign on to access the database and release the information

if you're friendly with your local dealer then they 'may' print off the reference point data

as you're correct in saying there's a set of figures with drop heights from the chassis rails to a flat surface to check chassis alignment

sorry that this isn't a more DIY answer but its a the nature of the problem

I own a 2000 BMW e39 540i Touring and have just completed
I own a 2000 BMW e39 540i Touring and have just completed the replacement of the timing chain guides, tensioners along with the primary Tensioner. Additionally, the main timing chain and secondary timing chains along with the secondary tensioners were replaced. The engine was reassembled and timed using the Master Vanos Timing Tool kit sold by German Auto Solutions. After timing, engine reassembly was completed, oil and coolant were added and the engine inspected in preparation for initial start up. The engine started with the expected rattles as oil pressure built up then died. I have checked and rechecked all electrical and pneumatic connections, however the engine refused to start. Thinking the engine in old school terms might be flooded, I disconnected the fuel line from the fuel manifold, collecting the fuel in a container and tried a start. The engine did fire and began to gain RPM until the fuel in the intake manifold was consumed the seized to run. I reconnected the fuel line but a gain no start. Would appreciate any guidance you might send my way. … read more
