So my Audi Q5, 2015 is a pretty decent vehicle.
Why would they use substandard plastic, inside and part of the bumper, to afix the washer doors for the headlights?
I had a spring come off and thought it could be replaced easily. It took a body shop, not the dealer, to remove the bumper, discover one side broken and the other side cracked to diagnose the design defect. Not wanting an expensive bumper replacement for what should be a small plastic part repair I opted to disable the washers and glue the doors shut. It still cost me $100.
I wouldn't expect this from this level of vehicle.
Makes me rethink purchasing a 2020 Q7 for $90k.

In the UK that would fail our yearly road safety test (MOT). Not sure what you have in the US. You could have just disabled them via VCDS etc.
