United-Kingdom Door lock actuator - Confusion (Bracket)

I've bought a drivers side door lock actuator for a mini cooper (2004) that I shall be fitting tomorrow, however on all the guides it says/shows a little bracket that is bolted to the unit, the one in this picture :

The bracket shown in blue in this picture :

However, the hole were the bracket would go isn't threaded on the replacement I've bought ? I've not got the old unit out of the door yet, this is the one I bought :

(See attachments)

Do we not have that bracket on UK cars ? Every guide I find seems to be american, but I have seen some actuators sell on ebay that have that bracket fitted so i'm really confused, this is a picture I have just taken of the one I bought, as you can see no threaded holes for that bracket to go ? The part number I bought is 51200556769

I've done this job on my 2004 Cooper.
I purchased the genuine part from Mini and took
the parts you show in blue off the old one and put them
on the new one.......job done!
Can't understand what's going on with the part you have.

Can you remember if the hole for the bracket was threaded ? Or is the screw just self tapping that you use (if so thats a stupid design)

Done ! Took about 1hour in total, quite easy tbh. Also had the rear wiper assembly stripped and clean, rear washer works now.
