Anyone now what this is?


Help! Just had a look under the car and noticed this metal "arm" has snapped, I've taped it up out of the way.
I'm beginning to panic that this is really important. Does anyone know if it can be bought as a single part or if I need to buy the whole thing that stretches across the whole rear of the car?
Arggghhh!! :-(

Yup, rear sway bar. On eBay, $30-50 all day long. Wish everything for the Box was this cheap!

That's the rear sway bar. You can still drive the car around until you find a replacement. You'll just need to remove the end links and sway bar first.

Check the below link. You should be able to pick up a good used OEM one and the related parts for a good price. Great seller.
