On Tuesday my car got a little too over friendly with the wall and decided to touch it. Sad As a result the front left wheel arch has come off and has snapped a few clips holding it on in the process.

I was just wondering if anyone knows where to get a new one and how to put it on or where to get it fixed.

Thanks Wink

Amy.

I got clips from mini there like 20p or something silly like that, as for an arch i cannot see that being too expensive best bet is probably Mini again! x

Do you mean just the plastic wheel arch? If so do go to mini they are dirt cheap.

As Andy said you'd be surprised at the price from MINI and could be quicker than getting from a scrappy or ebay Smile

Easy to fit too, they're not all that secure.

The ones for the r56 are around £13 if I remember correctly so wouldn't think the r50 ones are much more/less.
