using Headlight with broken tab is illegal? *insurance*

I had some issue with insurance company before.

related link

to make a long story short ,

somebody was backing up ,and bumped to my passenger side front end.
my car was parked ,and I was watching from outside.

bumper , hood , and headlight got damage.

bumper and hood is fixed but headlight still has scratches.

They tried to buff it out , but it didn't work. Insurance company is saying it had one broken tab inside before the accident they will not pay for new one. Yes there was broken tab , and I admit that.

They are saying the headlight with broken tab is considered as JUNK and I cannot pass the inspection. so they will not pay for replacement. so I asked to get a used parts at least , but denied.

any suggestion or advice? I am dealing with the hardest insurance company evern seen , since I am not their customer(the other driver is the insurance holder) I have not too many option to deal with them. please give me some advice or opinion. Thank you in advance.
