Part of the convertible roof on my new car has broken off - where do I stand with getting this fixed?

I bought a Mini Cooper S convertible recently and within a week, an interior cover running across the width fell off. I took it to a garage and found out that the clips are broken and the garage is unable to reattach them. The cost of a replacement part is around £260 - where do I stand on this ? The car had an RAC check before purchase, but clearly the clips were damaged before purchase and the part was jammed in place until sale.
The dealer you bought it from is wholly liable and responsible for fixing it:
