The bracket is slightly different from the one wilk found. I agree that the bracket probably broke as a result of vibration or flex which was probably introduced when the engine was raised by one hole.i have the old bracket nearly removed. Circa one hour e work. The etec is difficult to lift as there is no lifting eye in the engine. Another hour should put the engine back together.

Yes, ideally it should be screwed and laminated on
