Carpet and Seat Removal R56 Mini Cooper

When I purchased my 2007 Mini Cooper S, the drivers window was down. I don’t know how long it sat outside like that, but the carpet and seats were wet. I decided to remove the carpet and interior to dry things out.

This video covers the removal of the carpet, seats, and center console in an R56 Mini. This information may also apply to some other Mini models as well.

  1. Beer is a necessary shop supply when [I] work on my ['07 MCS Mini] ..
    .. and then jeepers Eric ! Thank you so much for your content as it/they help me understand how my car is put together.. Shit like that is priceless these days..
    Like anyone can work on these given time, tools, and space – and fear those resources are just way outside what many/most(?) take into consideration..

  2. Eric I am the owner of an R56 Mini One (it is the base model Cooper here in Europe) 1.4L. I have a base wave CD unit and was wondering if it is possible to retrofit an upgraded OEM unit? Thanks

  3. Finally a video with good commentary and visuals. Could you do more videos on the mini please? I have a 2013 countryman (NOT S MODEL) and all the videos about that model are either not very good or for the S model. If there's no difference between the S model and the standard model, then that's great. But so far all the videos I've seen aren't that good.

  4. if you started the car up without that passenger seat connected, would it just give you warning lights forever? I'm trying to build a sleepable bed in my r56 that stretches the passenger side of the car.

  5. I had to remove the carpet in my 2008 Mini Cooper S. Once a good portion of the center items were removed, I cut the carpet around a lot of the remaining steel pieces. For the cuts you make, the carpet isn't going to be affected at all. This is a great video of what to look for if your thinking about doing it.

  6. 12:40 ughh Integras have interior trim panels with clips like those, and on mine a bunch of the slots on the panel itself have broken off. Especially on the rear side trims that go from the doors all the way back to the rear cargo area. Such a pain.
