This question has cropped up a couple of times recently, but I don't think anyone has given the answer as yet....

I'd imagine you'll have to remove the door card to have a proper look, but once you've done it, please report back here to help others in the future.

Door card removal instructions can be found in the FAQ, and by doing a search

You can see here the exploded diagram for the door lock and pin.....

RealOEM.COM * BMW R53 Cooper S DOOR HANDLE FRONT/LOCK, SINGLE PARTS

I think you're going to have remove the door card and take a closer look. Perhaps you can remove the pin from the top of the rod, and glue your new one in place?

If you mean door pin as in the thing that pops up and down when you lock/unlock the car, then its quite easy to get off. I had to change a door lockonce so had to remove that pin.

Its quite fiddly and a torch would be helpful. Basically you need to unscrew the door card Torx screws, and prize the door card off (carefully starting from around the bottom.)
Once thats off peer inside the door towards the lock mechanism, and the rod going up to door pin should be visible. It attaches to the back of the lock mechanism. To remove it from the lock, you simply push the rod towards the outer skin of the door (away from the lock), and it pops out. The whole rod/pin can then be removed through the door cavity. I assume you can then glue the new pin onto the rod/pin assembly.

I actually had some photos of inside the door but deleted them from my computer yesterday - typical!

OK.

Had a look at them and I have not seen the mini aftermarket door pin but also presume they are shapped or that the bar is moved when the new pin goes on.

I put some plyers around them and it broke off, the best way would be to heat the pin and remove it or just continue to break the parts as I did

you will need to remove the door card first
