Hi there. Unfortunately, your Facebook settings prohibit us from reviewing this image and helping you identify the part. We also don’t receive email, so that’s not an option unfortunately. I would recommend having a professional mechanic come to your location first and complete a power steering inspection to determine what is damaged.
