Well I found this part on my truck broke... What you think? Important? Or Not so?

You sooo don't need that part. But just to be on the safe side I'd wrap it up in some duct tape and zip ties so that it doesn't poke anybody.

Way to go Beard! I've seen them pull out and freeze together, but never seen one sheer in half like that, that's a wall hanger!
