    Can anyone please tell me how I know what engine I have in my car - 2013 Cooper S.

    Iíve been reading threads and things on the internet and the tensioner failure on the R56 concerns me.

    Thanks

    The N14 is the affected engine I believe

    It’s the N14 engine that suffers issues with the tensioner. The guide that Ali has posted is a handy guide to help you identify what engine you have.
