Hi, Im new to this forum and desperate for help. I need my car for everything :(.
I recently purchased a new car, a kia sportage 2005 model but have since learned there is lots of corrosion underneath the car. I need to try and source the replacement part so I can get a small local mechanic to fix it. (trying to save money).... only issue is I cant remember what the part was called to buy one. Ive got these Pics....can anyone help? What is the part called and where could I buy one from?

I take its the rear end ? if so its the rear suspension cross member £220-280 new from kia plus the bushings, the part is a lot bigger than what you highlighted

edit. a better look at the pic's shows you have a few more issues (rot, cv boots and a rear diff leak) imho your looking at more than the cars worth to put it right as the rear end has got to be dropped out- time to scrap it - value is a £800 - 1200 cap book price

your looking at a min of 3 hours labour but more like 5-6 hours due to the rusted bolts ect

did you buy this private or from a trader ?, it looks to of been flood damaged at some point in its life - I bet it looks spotless from the outside ? did you do a hpi check on the car ?

Had it got an MOT on it when it was bought?
That doesn't look like what's happened in 12 months.

It looks to of rotted from the inside out, also looking at the surrounding areas it doesn't look good, only seen 1 other car like this and that was a 2004 Vectra that had sat in river water up to its headlights for 2 days, either that or its been driven as a farm truck for most of its life

Not to scare the OP but I wouldn't be driving it

It's doesn't look like "normal" rust for a car that age for sure.
I agree I wouldn't drive it as it is.
