Hi Andrew, welcome to Mini2.

I have recently fitted a glovebox to my MCS '02 and it wasn't too bad, but I didn't find it as easy as I thought I would! Getting the old shelf out is easy, just a few screws but putting the new one in requires a very magnetic star shaped allen key as a couple of the screws are inaccessbile. I ofund that it required 3 hands and a bit of force to get it in. I ended up no installing the light as I couldn't find the correct part of the wiring lomb to plug it into (and I wanted to go down the pub!)

Having said all that I love having my glovebox and would do it again to not pay mini to do it for me, seeing as it would probably cost £80 to have it installed!
