    I had a busted side indicator so I went ahead and got a set from the junkyard over an hour away, popped the side vent or "scuttle" off only to find that the clip was broken and the previous owner had double sided taped it to the fender along with what appeared to be hot glue or silicone. I've slowly been properly replacing parts on this car and little things like this frustrate me, before I make an hour trip back to the junk yard for the little rubber grommets that should be there I'd like to know if anyone can provide me with a part number as I can't find it and I'd like to just get new ones ordered so I don't have to set half a day out for two little pieces of rubber. I saw this video online, this was the clearest image I could find of the pieces I'm looking for. Also I rather like the aftermarket vents I have and wondered if anyone had any info on them, cant find anything about them. Thanks! Capture.PNG 20200907_230554.jpg 20200907_230602.jpg

    www.realoem.com is your friend. Go there, find the part # then hit google up for a solution.

    See part #21: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=RE33-USA-02-2004-R53-Mini-Cooper_S&diagId=51_4275

    It's a $0.95 part from our friends at OutMotoring.com

    EDIT: LOL. I didn't see that the last comment in the thread had a link... I thought it was just a recommendation to go check OM.com. MotoringAlliance: The forum so thorough, it solves your problem twice! :D
