    I reckon it may need fixing.. the extra vibration will cause more damage.

    a spot weld should see that right! I have had a few similar issues with this type of joint on the Vectra B's.

    it needs fixing. it will be putting the other mounts under increased strain. if it was'nt needed it would'nt be there.

    I had a bracket come off like that on my old system (before powerflow)
    There were 2 brackets at certain points on the system.

    Like others have said, just needs welding back in position
