Hello. 

 

My mini failed its MOT last month. Slowly working through the list. 

 

Confused on this though

 

  • Offside Front Sub-frame attachment rubber mounting deteriorated resulting in excessive movement (2.4.G.2)
  • Nearside Front Sub-frame attachment bracket/mounting insecure (2.4.G.1)

The guy pointed to the front of the car and said the mounts were missing. 

 

Can some on point me in the right direction for what parts i need to buy?

 

cheers

Hi thanks.

 

Its 1986. I do believe it is the tear drop mounts. I'll know more once i get under the car. 

 

cheers

Update.

 

So i got under the car. And this is what i saw. 

 

  • Offside Front Sub-frame attachment rubber mounting deteriorated resulting in excessive movement (2.4.G.2)

The tear drop is bolted to the car and not the sub frame. The main bolt then goes through a massive washer and through the sub frame 2 small washers then held on with a nut. I'm guessing the washer has broken away from the tear drop.

Regarding the other side

  • Nearside Front Sub-frame attachment bracket/mounting insecure (2.4.G.1)

Again i'm guessing the washer has broken away from the tear drop. 

So 

I've had a look for replacement parts but am a bit confused as to what part i need. 

I've had a look on mini spares but got confused about whether I need a 

6 2A4292 Packing washers, front panel to subframe - 1976 on A/R for the offside to fill the gap between tear drop and sub frame. 

 

 

 

cheers for any help again.

Yeah I'm going to order 2 of them but didn't know whether I need those spacers to go in-between the mount and sub frame on the offside.

I think that is it, just the rubber bit has come off yours

 

 

That spacer is on this diagram but not on where the teardrop is....

The spacer may be required (probably will in your case) I had the same happen on my car and made my own spacer so that the rubber wasn't being pulled apart when mounted.
