This video will show you how to install the carpet, seats, and center console in an R56 Mini. This information may also apply to other Mini’s of the same vintage.
I removed the seats and carpet from my 2007 Mini Cooper S to dry things out. When I bought the car the window was open and it sat outside for a while. As a result, the interior was dirty and wet and needed to be dried out.
While I had things removed, I thought it would be a good time to also do some detail work on the interior. It’s looking, and smelling like a new car inside now.
