Phoenix, AZ asked in Car Accidents for Arizona

Q: Can a broken/shattered (but functional and secured) headlight assembly pass a level 3 inspection?

Minor fender bender on the front of a Grand Marquis. No mechanical damage. The headlight and turn signal assembly we’re shattered. All wiring and lights still work. The front of the headlight assembly is in pieces, but still shines light and is secured in its position. The turn signal assembly was destroyed and replaced. The front mount for it was destroyed and is held on with thick tied metal wire with very little wiggle. The back is secured with factory mounting via screw and nut. The rest of the car is fully functional and undamaged.

Update: The car passed without issue.

A: An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It looks like the vehicle already passed. But those issues could be a judgment call on the part of the individual inspector. Good luck
