: Need help finding replacement part
Aug 1st, 2012, 12:35 PM
I need to find another door sill for a 2008 Mini Cooper Clubman S. I have searched on google and contacted multiple vendors and no one is able to help me.
Does anyone know where I can find another door sill, in the same style as the one in the picture? If so, please provide me with a link as I am not familiar with mini parts.
Thank you to anyone that is able to help me out!

Thanks for the response. I checked with those places and none were able to help me. They primarily deal with used parts and do not carry the door sills.
Does anyone know of a giant parts distributor? I know of a few GM and Ford places that are very easy to find parts online.
I am having a very difficult time sourcing mini parts though.

You could also try MINI Uk too, they list the sill kick strips, although it doesnt show the exact pattern you require, but I see you can now get illuminated ones too :) so you can see how dirty your shoes are as you get in, whatever will they think if next???

That looks like a standard Cooper S door strip (number 3 below) so you can get it from your Mini dealer parts department. List price is around £25.

Angib, what was the part number for the third one? I tried to browse it on realoem but couldn't find it.

Never mind, I found a website in the states that sells them. I am not allowed to post links yet but go to MiniOfSouthAtlanta (dotcom) And look it up as follows:

You can get a better price elsewhere.
Look up the part number on RealOEM ...
RealOEM - R55 Cooper S Entrance Cover (http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=MM33&mospid=50627&btnr=51_6292&hg=51&fg=55)
Then price the part at both the following places ...
