Lots of colour bleaching and de lamination so needs repair / replacing
How difficult?

Three nuts at the bottom. You get to them from the foot wells. the one in the center is a pita.
take vents out first then u can see the 2 end ones.
Remove radio to see the middle one.
top is help in with a plastic wedge.

unclip all the loom, then carefully man handle it out, easier with the steering wheel off.

good look. stay calm its just a dash in an old mini.


i have a very nice dash from a cooper sport 2000 foresale.

Excellent
Just the advice I needed.
Doesn’t sound too difficult.
I’m going to try to “rescue” the original dash firstly
What does the Cooper sport one look like .. pics
