England Broken leather around gear stick

Hi all,

A mechanic/sparky tore what was left of my leather around the gear stick while installing an aux lead into the back of my stock stereo.

So now dust can get into the internal parts and I'm a bit worried.

Any idea how much a fix would set me back?

Cheers,

TD

PS. It's a Mini Cooper Auto 2002

Hi ya

I think It's very simple to do it your self and will just cost you the price of the boot, I would go to mini and get one. I think there around Ł25-30 ish if you go take the last seven digits of your vin number two letters five numbers, this will help them get the correct part

You could try a breakers mini matt or bm spares are good just make shore you get the correct trim colour

Item 11

Hope this helps
