Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If they tampered with your husband's vehicle and caused damage to the vehicle or your property while repossessing your car, they are liable for ALL of that damage. So, you can send them a letter demanding they pay for the damages they caused and if they refuse, which they likely will, then you can sue them for the damage in court. You need to take pictures of everything and all of the damage closely so you can preserve that for suing in court.
