If your front subframe is attached to the heelboard, you're doing it wrong.
... unless maybe it is a Mini that has really been shortened.

OP said heel board - which is the front mounting panel for the rear subframe.

Car engines make CO2 and trees absorb CO2. By running your engine you're feeding a tree and helping the environment.

They are on a bracket welded inside to the inner sill and heel board.

The outer sill covers these parts over.

The welded on nuts are part of the heel board.

I'm still learning about Mini's. I thought this car I bought was going to be easier than is has been. Question- On the heel board, are the weld nuts for the subframe attachment on the heel board or are they on a bracket inside the body panels that the heel board covers up? Also, if the nice gentlemen from Farmington Hills MI sees this, send me your number again. My number is 734-756-9965.
