MINI who lose their spare tire
Have you ever seen any one spare wheel in the middle of the highway? If so, after living a few seconds of intense stress and having maneuver to avoid the object, you’re probably asked who could have get rid of the tire that way.
If the wheel has owned MINI Cooper 2014, it is possible that its owner did not choose to drop it: indeed BMW has announced a recall of nearly 6000 MINI because the nuts that support the wheel under the vehicle may loosen due to vibration.
If this happens, the wheel can detach and fall on the floor, becoming a hazard to other drivers. Note however that this recall applies only to those who have a full-size spare tire on a base MINI, since in the S models, it is located in the trunk, rather than under the vehicle.
BMW dealers will soon send a notice to the concerned owners and will repair this error by installing a locking nut.
