Took the wife's Mini in for service and made the last free service just under the wire.
I went in on May 10 and the warranty expired on May 11, 2011.

I complained about the noisy engine, sounded like a diesel all the time.
Here is what they printed on the invoice:

============================================================
D CUSTOMER STATES ENGINE SOUNDS LIKE A DIESEL
CAUSE:
INFO INFORMATION LINE
345 CPMC
PARTS: 0.00 LABOR: 0.00 OTHER:
45332 CONFIRMED CONCERN OF EXCESSIVE ENGINE NOISE. SCANNED VEHICLE FOR
FAULTS AND PERFORMED SHORT TEST, NO FAULTS RELATED TO CONCERN. CHECKED
AND FOUND BULLITIN #M11 02 07 APPLIES INSPECTED TIMING CHAIN DEFLECTION PER BULLITIN AND FOUND AT 67.89MM AND WILL ONLY REQUIRE UPDATED CHAIN TENSIONER W/REPROGRAM.

=============================================================

After the rework, I see no difference in the noise, it may even be a bit louder.

Dear Nick,

I have the knocking noise from the vacuum pump (it goes away if I disconnect the hose). Even if it is not a fault the noise is very annoying.

Do you know how can I fix it? I recently changed my vacuum pump for a new one and the noise is exactly the same.

Thank you in advance,

Francisco
