Without the crash protection plate, the fuel pump can become damaged in the event of a crash, causing a fuel leak and increasing the risk of a fire.
What to do
MINI will notify owners, and dealers will install a crash protection plate, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin October 15, 2018.
