500 Abarth Strut Troubles

Alright so I might have been going too fast one day and hit a bump a little hard and I ended up bending my strut, now I went to replace it and I found this plastic washer looking thing right below the strut mount. It was broken into 3 pieces and I cant seem to find it anywhere. I ordered a strut mounting kit and it came with a little metal piece that looked similar too it but I'm not sure if its the right part for it. Any ideas?

Re: 500 Abarth Strut Troubles

When you say strut do you mean the spring and shock absorber assembly? There's a good picture of the strut for a non Arbarth car in my guide here;
https://www.fiatforum.com/500-guides...placement.html
you can click and enlarge the pictures if this is any help? Both in pieces and assembled.

Re: 500 Abarth Strut Troubles

ww w.fiatpartswebstore.c om/products/gb/FIAT/500/STRUT-Right-Front-Suspension/11236004/04670556AE.html?partner=googlebase_adwords&kwd=&or igin=pla
If you go to that link and look at the diagram the plastic washer looking thing I found was right under #20 (plate. damper).
Now the mounting kit I bought looks just like the one in this link:
ww w.partsgeek.co m/mmparts/strut_mount/fiat/500.html
The smallest piece in that kit is the one I got with mine but its not exactly what that plastic piece looked like and the one in the kit is metal so idk if they don't make the plastic ones anymore and that's just the new one they make or if its not the right part at all.
I cant post url's yet so there is some spaces in the url's but take them out and go to the link and you'll see it
