Re: Is this important?
It looks important to me. Seems its some kind of chassis cross rail / underfloorbrace. Without it the rear part of the body will be flexing more as you go over bumps and around corners. Could also compromise body strength in the event of a shunt. I would expect the main dealers to be able to supply one especially as it appears to be a bolt-on part. Otherwise perhaps consult a company that supplies body panels etc.
Don't take without giving in return
