    On the front left lower arm is a bracket that connects to a switch/sensor which looks like it monitors the suspension position.
    I only have one on the left side.
    The reason i ask is the bracket is loose and rattles around and i'd like to fix it.

    It's for the self leveling headlights, i assume you have factory xenons fitted?

    You should find a similar unit fitted to the rear too

    Yeah i do have factory xenons so that would make sens.

    Does anyone know how much a new part or just the bracket would be?

    The brackets tend to rust through, and either break, or become loose.

    Replacement is the only option.

    Not 100% sure, but I think the last one I supplied came with the retaining arm, I'll check tomorrow.
