    Iv had a small crash in my mini, and now the bonnet won't close correctly, it seems to be slightly pushed to the right. There is no major damage anywhere on the front just. A few small dents which is understandable. Can anyone advise me on what could be the problem and how to fix it

    Without seeing it I doubt anyone can offer any advice. Can you upload some photos?
    Keep in mind that it is better to have a professional come and see the car as there may be important stuff that you have missed.

    Depending on the age, some Mini's have their headlights mounted in the bonnet? So they might need to be realigned? If not, you can adjust the bonnet on the hinges, that might help.

    If you post a few photos, we'll have a look. But as already said, might be best to get someone to have a look. Especially if there was someone else involved.

    Post up a picture, chances are you have twisted the front slam panel underneath the bumper where the bonnet catches reside
