SOURCE: air vents

Unfortunately you have to take the dash trim off to get to the speedo trim which holds the middle air vents. very involved and can easily tear or scratch trim.

SOURCE: i have a mini cooper and would like to put it up

Fill the gas tank and add fuel stabilizer to prevent condensation from forming in the tank. Run the engine so the stabilizer gets through the system, I add a small amount of marvel oil to fuel as well. Get an automatic battery tender and connect it to the battery (if you have available power) Change the engine oil (old oil has acids in it that are not good for the bearings). It is good to support the vehicle on cement blocks under the chassis to relieve pressure on the suspension but that is optional. If no power is available, remove the battery...there are systems that will eventually drain it if connected. Store the battery fully charged, in a place where it is not on a cement floor and is not brutally cold. Even with stabilizer, fuel will loose a lot of it's "punch" after 30 days so don't be upset if performance drops off for a while after getting it back on the road in Spring.

you will need to take part of the bottom of the dash away but you wont have to take it out completely.
not done this for a while but as I recall you can slide it out the side near the passenger footwell.
like I say it was a while ago when I done it so not fresh in my head.

look where the fan is see what access you have around it.

good luck

If you have a Mini that was buit pre 2006 i.e. a first gen Mini then your new steering wheel will not fit, you need to buy a 1st gen Mini 3 spoke steering wheel.

Akso, for issues regarding the airbag light DO NOT pay the dealer silly amounts of money to solve the problem. Please visit the following thread

It's the rear parcel window shelf.
If you want a new one, you can buy it from: just fill out the information (R50 if you have a Cooper, R53 if you have a Cooper S) then do a search on shelf (you will need to buy shelf and cords)
If you don't mind a used shelf, you can search on your local MINI forums, or ebay.

You need to goto a good parts store or the Cooper dealer and simply buy the new Pigtail Connector for that particular unit. It will give you a new plug, and the wires long enough for you to splice to the old wires and be on your way.

What is the difference between a r50 and r53 mini

R50 is the designation that BMW use for the hardtop (i.e. not the convertible) hatchback version of the Mini One and Mini Cooper produced from 2001-2006, and including the special edition versions called 'Mini Seven' and 'Park Lane', and also the Mini One D (the diesel version) from 2004-2006.
R53 is the designation used for the Mini Cooper S (a supercharged version with 170 bhp) from 2002-2006, and also the special edition versions which were called the 'MC40' (2004), 'Cooper S works' (2005 on), the 'Mini GP' (2006) and the 'Cooper S checkmate' (2006)
