Description Reviews MINI Boot Handle for all generation 2 cars. These fail in one of two ways....or both. Water gets into the handle and the button contact rusts away and you can't open your boot. Or water gets under the license light bulb covers and corrodes both light bulb contacts requiring replacement (because you have to have light over your plate in most states). Pick chrome for some bling, or paint to match. The nice thing about the gen 2 boot handles is the outer skin is replaceable. If you're careful, you can remove the painted one from your car and install it on the new side with working electronics. These new handles come complete with new gaskets, license plate bulbs, and new light covers, ready to plug in. It's an easy install with basic hand tools. And like always, many MINI parts come with a new two year warranty!
