Buick: My left rear wheel locked up, my son-in-law was a crew chief

Resolved Question:

My left rear wheel locked up, my son-in-law was a crew chief so he takes care of my car, when he took off the wheel, there was a broken part that fell out, he found the part but now doesn't know where it goes in the wheel, is there a drawing of parts in the wheel I can obtain....he's trying to do it himself so I don't have to pay a shop as I'm a Senior and love my Buick!
