2017 Jeep Compass rear...

2017 Jeep Compass rear suspension crossmember rusted out on passenger side top control arm connection point, causing wheel to angle out at bottom, rub tire at top.

Mechanic's Assistant: How has the ride been lately? Have you noticed any fluid under the car?

Ride was fine. Not a fluid leak. Actually rusted out crossmember element. Apparently there was a service bulletin that extended warranty out ten years because of manufacturing flaw. Bought 2nd hand, not covered because of date.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Compass yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to locate parts and evaluate if fixing it myself is a reasonable option.

T​he part number is ***** and it looks like cheapest place to buy it is probably going to be ebay. Here is a link to buy it. It is a 4 hour job book rate to replace. I do not have instructions to replace but it should be fairly straight forward, just need to remove everything related to rear suspension. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
