Roof Box: MINI Cooper Installation

Before you attempt to install your MINI roof box, make sure to check your owner’s manual to find the roof load limit for your specific MINI model. If your MINI Cooper already has factory-installed roof racks, or if you have had roof racks installed after you have purchased your vehicle, you’ll find the MINI Cooper roof box installation to be quite simple and easy for you and a friend to accomplish. The following steps will show you how to install a MINI Cooper roof box:

  1. Install the four anchor points by pushing the screws of the sliding blocks up through the bottom holes of the roof box.
  2. Fit the clamps plates into the molds and thread them loosely onto the sliding block screws.
  3. Lift the MINI roof box onto the roof carrier rails. This will be easier if you have someone to help you lift and place the box.
  4. Slide the box to the left side of the carrier rails until both left-hand sliding blocks are in front of the carrier rails ends.
  5. Check to make sure that you can still open the rear hatch.
  6. Thread both of the left sliding blocks into the carrier rails and slide the MINI roof box to the opposite side of the carrier rails.
  7. Position both right-hand sliding blocks in front of the right-side carrier rails ends and thread them into the rails.
  8. Slide the MINI roof box along the carrier rails toward the center of the roof and make sure that it is properly aligned.
  9. Open the roof box from one side and tighten all four clamping bolts on top of the sliding blocks.

The MINI roof box can be opened from either side for easy loading, just make sure to evenly distribute the weight within the roof box. MINI Cooper load limits should always be followed. It is also important that you use the lashing and tension belts to tie down your cargo so the load won’t shift when you drive.
