Mini Cooper Engine Removal (R56/N14)

I believe this information will also apply to other Mini Coopers of similar vintage.

The main take away here is to work carefully and methodically. Keep all your parts and fasteners organized. This will make reassembly much easier.

I had some help with editing on this one from Javan Hovind.
