If I remember properly, there were screws that held on the a-pillar cover, maybe 3 or 4? They may have been located under the weather stripping of your door, but without my car near me right now, i can't run out and check. when you get your new trim piece, you will need to remove all of the leftover clips that were left on when your fist cover blew off, they come already attached the new cover. Don't re-use them, just use the new ones that come on the cover. It will just snap into place with the new one, and then you need to screw it in around where it meets the window (not windshield, but side up and down window.)

When I installed mine, i didn't use any double-sided tape, and they still haven't decided to fly off, however, if you want to feel more comfortable, you can always use double-sided tape again.

That step by step instruction would cover at least 2 pages, way too long to post here.
Buy this workshop manual   http://www.minicarparts.net/Parts/M4273.cfm    it will have all the instructions that you need, with pictures.

MINI COOPER 2002, 25.00 MILES. ANY OF THE WINDOWS WORKS


With ignition switch on and engine off activate a window switch... listen for a clicking noise. if there is no noise then start checking fuses and relays. The fuse panel in on the left of the drivers legs. open it up it is well marked and in it you will find a handy fuse puller and spare fuses if they're needed. If you hear the clicking sound then try the Mini cooper Thump. Apply it to the doors midway between the large and small speakers (It may take two or three solid thumps) re-apply as needed

  2. If equipped, remove the electronic compass sensor.
  3. If equipped, disconnect the auto dimming interior mirror connector.

  6. Remove the gimp around the roof opening panel.
    1. Remove the sun visors. For additional information, refer to Sun Visor in this section.
