2005 Ford Escape XLT 3.0L 136k Need help identifying part Sign In

There is a hole in one of the parts of my car, and I am unsure as to what part it is. If its a transmission its an expensive fix, but if its a transfer case or some other part I would be in luck. Can anybody identify this part? I have the 4wd model which is an auto 4wd and the part as you might be able to see is located where the cv axle comes into that part.

That's the front transaxle. You're looking at some money there.

what kind of repair costs would i be looking at if i replaced it? would there be a way to have a professional welder weld an aluminum patch? Or would i be better off selling the vehicle and not dealing with it?

You can forget the welding. Installing a used one is the only reasonable way to fix it. You will have to get a shop to call around and give you an estimate.

If something hit it while you were driving, your car insurance may cover the cost minus your deductible.

You don't always save money doing your own work.
