I just got the Mini back from the Dobbs Tire shop, where somehow the cheap inspection was parlayed up to $800 worth of repairs.
The next day, I was tooling down the road and my Flat Tire indicator came on. The one that looks like a butt.
I took the car back to the shop, where the mechanics checked the tires, found them sufficient, then gathered to solve the mystery of where the tire indicator light reset button was. It was a mystery because my 2005 car is so old that it isn’t listed in any reference document. They looked under the dashboard and in the glove compartment. Eventually they found it ... in plain sight between the seatbelt latch and the parking brake (which they called the ‘e-brake,’ because my car is so old there has been a great vowel shift).
I have had this car for almost 15 years and I have never seen this button. For any mechanics googling “Mini Cooper flat tire light reset button,” here it is:
Has a little butt on it and everything. I was gobsmacked.
