My truck was making this ticking sound from around my belts sunday night, and as I was looking for the source of this sound I found this;

The rear lower mount is broken clean off. Obviously this is not good, but do I need to fix this before I drive 600 miles this weekend? What is the fix for this? Tig it back together or replace are the only options I see.

i would replace asap----the load will be thrown elsewhere......as for welding the piece is probably white metal and not really weldable

Replaced it today with a salvage yard replacement from a burnt 04 duramax. Not the worst thing I have ever done, but also not funnest by any means. Only charged me $40 for the whole mount bracket with both idlers and the tensioner, didnt use them since both my idlers are new anyways but I have two extras now.
