Beginning in 1976, in an effort to enhance the comfort and sound level of Minis, rubber mounts were added to the front of the front subframe to isolate engine and road noise. This panel is needed to work with the front mounts. Heritage quality for best fit.
Aftermarket version of this panel is SBO0654. See also 14A8308 for 1959-1975, ASJ36002 for 1990-96 and ASJ360070 for 1997-on.
