United-Kingdom R50 wheel arch trim fitting (clips)

Hi, hope someone can help. Recently becoming a new owner of a R50 Mini Copper (and loving the little sweetie) i have a missing clip on the front wheel arch trim. The R50 has a 2 part trim on the front wings, the part i am having an issue is the section nearest the door. the standard light grey circular clips have been replaced successfully but the last one on the strip (which is nearest the top of the wheel arch) seems to be a square whole for it to fit in and the grey circular clips clearly don't fit this hole. Searching the Internet for hours has bought no joy in finding what clip is needed. Can anyone help, thanks in advance

R50 wheel arch trim fitting (clips)

Thanks Marque,

Yes i found that but it didn't seem to tally to what i have found on mine. On that last clip we have found number 19 clip stuck on with gum or something. Looking at where number 19 normally goes, it states it it is used for the door sill clip. I am confused totally.

Hi ya

No problem if you have a good bmw mini dealer near you they should be able to help,
My local place are really good and very very helpful, the clips are cheep so it's not to much of a problem, I don't think you will find them much cheeper anywhere else.

I would think looking at the diagram that p/no 19 says you need qty of two, I would think one at the door seal end and one at the top end by the bonnet.
Will have a look at mine tomorrow in the light see what I can see.

Hi Marque
I popped into the BMW dealership today and got the number 19 clip, came home to find out that the grey UFO clips don't fit into the clip, it needed a serrated edge clip to go into it, after phoning the parts department with 15 minutes till closing time, i spoke to the sales guy who went off to ask someone else to discover he should of sold me the matching clip to fix with it, it will not work with a UFO clip. You need part number 07 13 036 159 AND 07 13 036 160 also. All fixed :-) Thanks for your help and hope this helps other people in the future too.
