So i just bought a broken Saturn off eBay and it wasn’t in great condition it looked a bit rusted but most of the board and Bits where actually in good condition. What is this piece called on the cd drive board called and can I get a replacement part from anywhere as it literally fell to bits when I unsoldered it.

Unsoldered it because it looks rusted and wanted to clean up the point and put it back

It's a trimmer potentiometer. You can measure it to figure out its value, but since it's used to calibrate something, getting the replacement adjusted correctly can be tricky if you don't know what it's controlling or what the desired value is. Measure the old part's current value before measuring its range to give you a starting point.

hi mate, according to this vid @26min.07sec mark, it adjusts the range the laser moves out to read the edge of the CD.
