2.To install the fire extinguisher

Fire Extinguisher MINI (R50)

[1] Scribe the dimension 160 mm from the centre point (4) of the front securing screw along the line (1) connecting the securing screws (2) for the side trim on the left side of the boot (3).

Check the position of the scribed point by putting the holder c in place. When you do this, the fastening holes for the holder c must line up with the centre point of the front securing screw and the scribed point.

Punch the scribed point, drill a pilot hole through the side trim (2) and the body panel with a Ø 3 mm bit (1) then drill the final hole with a Ø 7.1 mm bit.

Always take appropriate precautions when clamping the spacer (1) in order to avoid damaging the paintwork of the body panel.

Clamp a suitable spacer (1) between the body panel (2) and the side trim (3) so the distance between the hole (4) drilled in the body panel and the hole (5) drilled in the side trim is about 10 mm.

Drill out the hole (5) in the side trim using a Ø 13 mm bit, taking care not to damage the Ø 7.1 mm hole drilled in the body panel. Deburr the edges of both holes. Also deburr the inside of the Ø 7.1 mm hole drilled in the body panel and treat it with the anti-corrosion measures set out in BMW specifications. Release the clamping effect by removing the spacer (1). Fit back on the rear screw and the cover of the left side trim in the boot.
