MINI Factory replacement Left Side A-Pillar Cover. This is the vertical trim that goes between the front windshield and side windows.
The outer A pillar cover is attached with 4 expanding rivets (included) and 4 hidden screws (not included) behind the seal in the door jamb. Windshield installers don't know about the hidden screws and routinely break the tabs for the screws during the windshield replacement. Once the screw tabs are broken, only the 4 plactic rivets will hold the cover in place and guess what.... it won't stay very long!
Fits the following models:
2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 Cooper S Hardtop
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertible
The 'molded piece' can be re-used, but if it is missing, then you need to order one per side.
