One last try, Has anyone fitted a Cooper spoiler?
Just think, Wylie, on the 4/1/05 I will have had the Cooper for just 6 months.wylie_eyed said:about the only thing you haven't done
I do reallly understand you, since i'm in your exact situation...Pglenning said:I have the spoiler painted and ready to fit, but I don't know if I should TRY to fit it or get the dealership to fit it. It looks easy to fit, but it is the drilling I am worried about .
Thanks for this , good idea regarding the 10mm socket set as a guideonemini said:I fitted the S spoiler to my car. I too had to drill the boot at 2 points and was a bit worried about doing it. I got a quote for about £350 just for fitting (I already had the part from eBay)... that made up my mind for me and I just went for it
It isn't a hard job. Just insert a 10mm socket from a socket set into the hole in the back of the boot and this will giude the drill to the center. Use a drill bit that is a couple of mm wider than the thread.
It is a bit stressful drilling into your pride and joy but is totally worth it.
edit: make sure you buy a nice new good quality drill bit and drill slow and steady. If you can find an old car (or piece of car) to practice on then that would probably help.
If you need any further help just ask
