Although you have a V6, I replaced the spring pan on my twinny a couple of months ago.
Rather than buy new at over £200 I managed to source a second hand one in excellent nick apart from one of the bushes (end towards front of car)
It was not held in by any spring clip but instead was like you say a rose joint rubber and metal cased.
Sorry but it was a bugger to get the old out. I ended up burning the rubber out and dremeling the casing before knocking it out with chisel. Making good the spring pan arm, the new bush did fit in pretty easily with gentle pressure.
Hope this helps
