Headlight smashed and electrical gremlins
So I got myself in a low speed rear end. My fault, I get it, don't hate me. An SUV bumper smashed my headlight in. Miraculously nothing internal was damaged except a vacuum hose, and somehow the headlights still work. True tank of a car, they weren't kidding.
The turn signal light was badly mangled and the front signal is quite smashed. More than that, the entire turn signal system isn't working as a result. I tried using the hazards and it disabled the radio and the front dome light.
Obviously the headlight needs replacing, but all the electrical issues have me wondering how easy that will be to fix. Would replacing the socket and bulb possibly solve the bizarre shorts?
Also, how much should I expect to reasonably pay to have the headlight replaced and bodywork done? Pictures attached.
