Mini N14 Timing Chain Replacement

This video will walk you through the steps of replacing a timing chain on a Mini N14 engine. It includes tools and torque specs to do the job.

I removed the engine and transmission because I had other work besides the timing chain. Know that you do not need to remove the engine to replace the timing chain on this engine. You also do not need to remove the front of the vehicle, but it can make things easier. Everything can be done inside the vehicle. The only steps not included in this video are the removal of the front passenger wheel and inner fender liner.

If you want more detailed information on removing these components, watch this video: https://youtu.be/2RfQsOwBZHk

Here is the written procedure of timing chain replacement on the Mini N14: https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/r56-cooper-s-hat/repair-manuals/11-engine/11-31-camshaft/Q3LXg1u

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