Replace the part and look for some other damage there
PS -If Al can not be welded we are in a world of hurt LOL Going to go right out and throw my welder away .............OMG LOL
Aluminum can be welded -- but many alloys will not be as strong after welding as before unless the cooling is carefully controlled. Age makes it more brittle, like work hardening, and welding makes it softer in terms of yield strength. Like annealing steel but not Martensite to Pearlite/Ferrite.
