I dont know what my missus has been on this week, but I have just come home from work to find out that she has reversed into something else, and scratched the drivers side rear wheel arch. Thats two scratches and a wheel kerbed so far this week.
Has anyone ever replaced this part, I cant imagine it being too difficult (Pop rivets etc), or am I being presumptuous. Any one have any idea of the price of this part.
Cheers all again.
Tomorrow I am off to the local amusements to see if they have a spare dodgem for her to drive from now on.:D

They are not expensive from a Mini dealer and are held on with several plastic clips, buy the part and clips first (as they often break on removal) and you will see how it fixes on.

You wouldn't possibly know roughly how much???

£20-£30 approx. from a MINI Dealer spares dept.
Item 3 is priced in $ here, but check to your exact model for the correct part number by entering your VIN/Chassis number on realoem below:
