It may occur that a garage damages a vehicle while repairing it. The garage may be held responsible for the damage.

First, try to have the garage cover the costs. If the garage refuses, you can have the vehicle condition evaluated by another mechanic.

Then, send a formal notice to the garage that damaged the vehicle. See Formally notifying a merchant for details on how to proceed.
