ever since my car has came back from the body repair shop everything they touched seems to be falling apart.
#1a. they didnt screw the headlight fully on
b. took it back and now the headlight doesnt shine forward.
#2. car still shakes, new rim is in the mail and will be put on hopefully on monday.
#3. the removable piece from the front bumper (i believe its for the tow trucks?? i donno.) randomly dissapeared today.
...my dad is flipping a shit and thinks i keep destroying my car now considering everything keeps getting messed up. its horrible.. ill go make a pic real fast and post up whats missing.

I may be wrong but i think that is for the headlight washer. You hit your window wash stick 3 times (with the lights on) and that will pop out and spray up on the light.

It actually sprays the lights the first time you hit the washer and then every fifth time after that.

People who repaired your car probably also didn't know what it was. I take it you didn't bring it to a VW/Audi body shop?

i did it through insurance and they requested this other place. so no it wasnt VW/AUDI. plus they are all booked solid in florida. i look at the car today and found that there is a piece of double sided tape that was holding it on hah. so yeah they had no idea what they were doing. a few months ago i took tha6t piece off and put it back on so i know its not hard to figure out but still... tape it?? atleast tell me you donno how to do it and give me the piece.

Man, if I ever busted up my fast and my insurance made me bring it to someone else I'll put the thing through the acid test before it leaves the shop: kick the area that was damaged, pull on things, try the lights out, everthing. You should check if your right headlight washer even works at all.
