the more often I see the 1st picture the more I'm certain its a steering rack bolt that you un-necessarily opened.
A word of warning, the steering rack is threaded, very long chamber with thread, be CERTAIN that the bolt is started correctly. the rack will most likely have moved, so from underneath check the position of the rack compared holes in the sub-frame. the rack may have tilted ........ check, double check. treble check..... a steering rack is not a 5 min job to replace if it goes wrong.
