I think from another thread somewhere the parts from a non clubman mini are a good match. I only read this myself a week or two ago as I have just purchased the spring, plunger and cup from a mini specialist. The catch is all available from SJ sportscars.

Best regards
Mark

Mark, that’s great info thank you!

Which mini supplier did you use, I found the centre pin but not the cup or spring?
