Someone took a wrench or tire iron to the passenger side headlight on my 2017 model S. It works fine but there is a 0.75 cm X 3 cm hole in it. Probably should replace but I'm told i can only get the whole headlight unit from Tesla. Anyone know any salvage type place i might be able to find this item?

Since the exterior plastic is sealed to the housing, you'll want to just replace the whole headlamp. I don't think you'll find any headlights that someone took apart and then didn't feel like putting back together.
