Mini Cooper S roof spoiler clips

I recently had a minor screw-up and the spoiler on the back of the roof has been ripped off. I checked and the spoiler is in tact, what broke are those plastic clips that hold it down to the roof. I would like to be able to find a parts supplier that may have those clips, but have no luck. Found new units that cost hundreds and a used part from a salvaged car, which is still very expensive and is different color. Any advice where I can look for parts catalog and order these items, besides going to the dealer? Thanks.

    I'm OK with used, even salvaged. I'd assume online is the way to go as it can aggregate details from all over. Are there good portals for that?

The problem with unique hardware is that the new/used route is the only way to go. It is doubtful that there would be an aftermarket source of just the clips.

I have a 2004 mini cooper convertible. The roof opens to half way and will then flash red if i want it ti close all the way, All windows shut initally, but now when closing the roof the driver side rear...


I am not sure what you are trying to do. But if the problem is that the roof will only open to the first stage, sun roof, and no further, the problem is the package shelf in the trunk.

If the package lid gets pushed up and is not pushed back to it's normal position, the roof will fail to open completely. If you lift the bottom of the roof at the boot, there are levers on either side to release the bottom edge of the roof, you can make certain that the package shelf is seated correctly. Once the shelf is seated, the roof will open in all of it's glory.

Have you checked the parcel shelf is seated properly as there are micro switches beneath it so the car knows it will not jam the roof as it is lowered?
