Description Reviews The MINI Cooper Door Brake shown here is an OEM MINI Part. It can fail over years of use being in the elements and more than likely never getting any lubrication. If your door will not stay open or is super hard to open, it needs one of these. It's an easy install with 3 simple screws and the new unit goes in thru the door panel. Note: Some early 2002 had a metal door brake and is a different part; we have that one as well. The above part will fit all early cars from built date 05/2003 on for all the cars in the pull downs.
