Bent Carport pole

Due date

We have a bent carport pole which occurred due to some careless driving on my part. The bend is probably slightly less than 20 degrees but the ground/cement beneath it has been partially uprooted. The carport roof is slightly slanting towards the bent pole. Is there are way to bend this pole back into shape, or is there an easy way to replace it? We just need it stable again.

Dimensions of the pole (when fully upright) are roughly 5cm X 5cm in width. Pole is roughly 200 cm tall by rough measurements.

Please refer to the attached pictures.

Hi Chris, Photos are helpful, Can cut the bend out and get it straighter and brace the patch if appearance is not an issue, no offence but looking at the condition of the rest it looks like it could all do with replacing.
or weld a peice in.

Hi guys sorry for the late reply, I've just updated the job description, extended the date and added some photos which I hope are helpful. I should point out dates are somewhat flexible.

Hi Chris.Can you post photo of the carport. Thanks
looks like it may need a new pole with a wider mounting plate to avoid the damaged cement. see if you can post measurements, and we can see if anything is available or to be able to be quickly fabricated to replace it. The main issue here, is that once a pole is crimped (bent with a kink in it) they lose quite a bit of strength.
Hi chris i can simply replace it if its too thick to bend back.
I have all the tools
