I am a complete novice to the world of minis, and are hoping that you lovely people will be able to help me out?
I bought the wifey a 1998 mini cooper spi a little while ago, and I have just had the tyres replaced with new. While doing so I spotted that there was a bolt missing on what looks to be a damper that mounts to the bottom of the engine (sump area) to the front lower valance. I have found a bolt of similar size as a temp solution but I can feel it is not the correct size.
Please could someone help me two fold
A) what the component is?
B) what size bolt is required?
I have looked in the haynes manual but unless I'm being stupid I cannot find it. I have attached pictures and the bolt required is the shiny one that I am pointing at.
Thanks in advance
