Bonnet scoop replacement question

Hi all,

My R56 S needs bonnet scoop replacement as it is broken. I would like to replace by myself but I can only find 3 screws under the bonnet, one is "flower" shape screw and the other two are Philips. However, when I checked the Mini parts order site, the bonnet scoop fitting kits includes huge numbers of screws. Is there any fitting instruction I can find? I Google it for the whole day but seems none. Thanks!

Thanks for your quick reply. However, I always know where to buy the fitting kit, what I don't really understand is how to remove and re-install the scoop.

Today I successfully replace the scoop, the only slight problem was the position of one plug and the under bonnet screw bias a little bit. But I can still get the job done within 30 mins. Thanks!
