    for me it would run rough when I first started it in the morning, sometimes stall. It would run fine after warmed up. The dealer wouldn't replace it right away, made me wait until I had a new tank of gas (in case it was just bad gas). Then they said yeah, OK it's the hpfp.

    Just some additional information on this subject....

    N54 fuel pump failures
    In both the US and Canadian markets, the N54 engine has been plagued by a very large number of High Pressure Fuel Pump (HPFP) failures, leading to many BMW NA vehicle Lemon Law "buy backs" and reduced customer goodwill. On some engines the HPFP has failed more than four times within the first few years of service.
    BMW has instituted a 10-year, 120,000-mile (190,000 km) warranty on the part, but only for 2007, 2008 and 2009 model year vehicles with the N54 engine. Other model years, to include 2009 models, continue to report HPFP failures. As of late 2009, the low pressure fuel sensor has become suspected of causing some premature failures of the HPFP by engine tuners such as AMS and CP-E. BMW has engineered a newer HPFP model which has not resolved the issue. The new HPFP part number is: 13-51-7-594-943 and it replaces 13-51-7-592-881. BMW's failure to solve the HPFP problem has led to serious safety concerns over dangerous sudden losses of power at highway speeds. Reports of drivers being stranded are not uncommon and some have accused BMW of actively concealing the problem rather than addressing it. On October 26, 2010, BMW announced a recall of vehicles with the pump in question from manufacturing years 2007–2010.
    The current recall along with the replacement of the HPFP includes a recalibration in the ECU to prime the HPFP with the LPFP prior to the HPFP starting. The current part number for the HPFP for the recall is the same as that found in the BMW 1M.

    From their eyes....

    If they resist individually... They probably come out ahead from a cost standpoint...

    Once the "Class Action" guys win... BMW / MINI is forced (legally) into a rather large cost to resolve the issue...

    Which probably explains their tact in dealing with defects... To hell with customer loyalty, what's the lowest cost option...

    Does warranty apply on HPFP

    Hi Rixter,

    Just confirmed my HPFP is done. Do we know for sure the extended warranty is good in Canada? I hope so because this part is expensive.

    They did extend the warranty to later models. I had received a letter indicating my clubby was covered and how to submit a claim for compensation. Mine had failed last year at 119K. I filed a claim less than a month ago and received the check this week.

    The replacement was done by an indy mechanic and not the dealership if anyone was wondering if that mattered.

    Has anyone heard back from Mini Canada on the extended warranty?

    Got the below response.

    Dear Lester:

    Thank you for contacting MINI Canada. We appreciate the opportunity to assist you.

    Please be advised that extended parts warranties, much like recalls, are specific to the VIN of a vehicle based on factors like production dates, part affected, etc. Therefore, not every vehicle of the same year and model will be subject to the same extended warranties. Our records indicate that your 2010 MINI Cooper S bearing the VIN WMWM does not have an extended warranty for the High Pressure Fuel Pump at this time. We apologize for any disappointment this may cause.

    If you have any further comments, please contact the Customer Interaction Centre at 1-866-DRV-MINI. Again, thank you for contacting MINI.





    Sincerely,

    Ibrahima Ly

    MINI Canada
