If the fuel level indicator upper LED does not illuminate with a full tank, the tank’s pressure relief valve is likely closing too early.

This bulletin applies to 2016 Mini Cooper vehicles produced from November 1, 2016, through December 12, 2016.

  3. Remove and replace the fuel tank with P/N 16 11 7 453 430.
