Help Alfa gt suspension information

Working on car today. Noticed a small link arm on passenger side front suspension. It is linked to a small electrical switch. Could anyone tell me what I does as mine has broken link arm. Cheers

That will be the sensor for the headlight auto-levelling.
You must have OEM HID headlights.

There will be a similar sensor on the rear.

As it stands, it is an MOT failure if it is visibly broken.

It is the auto levelling sensor for your HID headlights. It has a cup and ball system on the ends of the links. They sometimes come apart after a pothole / knock. You can push them back together with a little effort .
