DASH FITTING GUIDE
PLEASE NOTE: SOME OF THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOUR PARTICULAR DASHBOARD.
PREPERATION
1. Unscrew the fascia ring from your air vents; remove the large sleeve and discard. Unscrew the air vent by twisting anti-clockwise.

2.Place the air vent on the back of the dashboard and screw the fascia ring back on from the front. N.B. Using a hacksaw, remove the rear section of the air vent pipe at the elbow. This will enable the dashboard to sit back further and will enable better airflow. Remember that the air vents will NOT be able to refit to the bulkhead.

3. Remove the plastic fascia from your clock pod by prising off from the edge and discard. Remove the fascia clips and discard. Undo the four retaining screws that hold the clocks into the metal bracket. Now remove the bracket all together by undoing the four bolts located in the bulkhead.

4. Place the dashboard face down on a flat surface and put the clock pod into the rebate from behind the dashboard. Screw the clock pod to the back of the dashboard using self-taping screws. On later models it may be necessary to remove the extensions from the indicator lenses.

5. Screw the black plastic clips to the back of the dashboard using the screws supplied, ensuring the serration is facing up, placing four clips at the top of the dash. (Positioning is not paramount, space equally if possible)

6. Screw two aluminium bend clips the bottom of the dash. (Positioning is not paramount, but ~30-45 cm from each end of the dash)

7. Fit your stereo according to the manufacturers instructions.
FITMENT TO CAR
1. Pull out the door rubbers so the dashboard sits in behind them when replaced. Place the dashboard so it sits on the bottom rail (where the switches are), the four retaining clips will now be facing the top rail.

2. Push the top retaining clips (black clips) down slightly so they lip under the padded top rail. Push the top in and hold the bottom to stop it sliding forward. N.B. Get some help pushing the dashboard in, it will go in straighter and stay firm.

3. Once in, apply pressure to the top centre, to follow the contours of the top rail. Then push on the bottom of the dash so the bottom sits flush with the lip on the bottom rail. Once you are happy with the position, reach under the rail and pull the two aluminium clips down to secure the bottom of the dash in place. Push door rubbers back into position covering the outside edges of the dashboard.

Please note: you may need to move the retaining clips to get a better grip. This is because all Mini’s are hand made and vary from car to car. Some clips will need to be moved up or in/out depending on your own car.
