First post on here, so be gentle, lol. A self taught (very) amateur mechanic here.
Had a battery issue today, popped hood to find a hanging serp belt and a loose alternator. Top bolt was gone, and when i went to tighten bottom bolt it would not grab. So i pulled alternator out of the way to see that the bottom mount bracket is cracked in half. I have seen tons of posts and videos about the top bracket cracking and how to replace( that one appears to be simple.) but the bottom one has me a bit stumped. I had to replace the alternator and serpentine pully a few months back (as the tensioner bolt was sheard off as well).

Any assistance on this would be greatly appreciated as I am trying to squeeze a little bit more of this vehicle,.

I added a quick half @$$ drawing of what happened, the red part is just cracked off and gone.

Thanks in advance to anyone

I'd check at salvage yard for replacement parts or buy a new from Honda. The latter is the easiest.
