I was about to disconnect this shift lever torque rod, and noticed this crack that I circled in this image (it's a bit messy, but that's not what I'm worried about here):
Is there any way I can fix this without replacing (at least) the entire transmission housing? Other than welding it? I didn't remove the rod because I was worried I'd break it in some way I can't fix right now. I can see that it's bolted to that broken piece, but I'm guessing it's got at least a couple bolts attaching it to the transmission or it would just be hanging there.
Or could I just leave this as is?
