Replacement of lower control arm should fix this issue. You could try to find the dust cover but it’s probably shot by now anyway and the part is not that expensive.

Not sure what a plate 54 or a mot is.

torn dust boots on ball joints is what usually leads to eventual ball joint failure.

on my 03 crv lower ball joint, you can buy the Honda dust boots for about $10 each. However, you don’t know what condition the underlying ball joint is in, and might consider replacing the ball joints. Honda does not sell ball joints alone for my vehicle, either it is aftermarket or replacing the knuckle ($300 each). New Aftermarket ball joint prices are variable, maybe say you spend $70 each on them. Labor to do this is Southern California might be around $250-300.
