Default Torn rear shock cover (I think)

All,

I'm helping out a friend with her 2006 Mini cooper and I noticed what appears to be shock cover that's completely torn on the left rear tire.




I'm curious what this component is called so I can see if it's something that I can replace, or if she'll have to bring it into her dealership.

Thanks!
Terence

Default rear lower control arm

Well is a rear lower control arm, not hard to replace if you have the right tools. Hehe I'm a tech so that no problem for me. Oh and that's not bad damage, minor to what I've seen. Hope this info helps

thanks for the response! I'll look into what replacing that will take, and see if I can do it myself.
