Aftersales FAQs

Are workshops considered an essential service and therefore open to be able to respond to key worker motoring needs?

Whilst some garages are able to remain open, Sycamore Peterborough Service Centre is temporarily closed, to protect our customers & employees. However, if you experience a breakdown you can still call MINI Emergency Assist, for those who have cover.

MINI Emergency Assist: 0800 777 101

For customers with a warranty expiry during the Coronavirus restrictions (from 14th March 2020 onwards), MINI UK will extend your warranty coverage until 30th June 2020. End of warranty checks due during this period will also be fulfilled.


How can I look after my MINI that is awaiting a service?

It is important to maintain your MINI regardless of servicing requirements. We recommend that you regularly check the following items:

Engine Oil   /  Coolant Level  /  Windscreen Washer Fluid  / Tyre Condition & Pressures   /  Exterior Lights

If I have a service pack that expires during your closure what will happen?

MINI will honour Service Inclusive packages expiring between 14th March and 30th June 2020 for any overdue work.

As the situation and timelines associated with workshop restrictions remain fluid, we will be reassessing the timescales on a regular basis.
