I had a minor fenderbender and brought my car to a body shop. The mechanic fixed the damage and replaced the front splashguards. Approx 2 weeks after the repair, the spashguards were pulled off by the tires. It was replaced again and the same problem happened. Now its being replaced for a third time. The splashguard doesn't appear to lay correctly in the wheelwell. Is the plastic splashguard supposed to be attached to the inside or outside of the lip on the fender in the wheelwell?

you didnt post the engine in your car so is just steel shell body to me.
why not clean it first.
find the exact part that leaks, then post that. (us UV dye for best play )
if smart, I would start at the top and work down.
1: replace the valve cover gaskets. 1hr labor.
that is far as i would go with no facts and no $800 found on tree branch.
you can 'fish' a coat hanger through the door seal to press the unlock button on the armrest, or slide down along window into the door's body to attempt to manually work the locking mechanism... a slim-jim is helpful here but can be done w/ coat hanger. WARNING!: this may damage your paint or the door seal or both, or the window seal.... once in the main body of the car...trip the lever
NEED TO LET A BODY SHOP CHECK OUT FRONT UNIBODY STRUCTURE FOR DAMAGE WHEN YOU HAD A FRONT END COLLISION. IF FRONT STRUCTURE BEND OR DAMAGED. THE FRONT BUMPER AND HEADLIGHTS FRONT WHEEL ALIGNMENT GOING TO BE OFF.SOUND LIKE FRONT END COLLISION IMPACT DAMAGED THE FRONT UNIBODY STRUCTURE.
ANY FRAME DAMAGE IS DANGEROUS ! HAVE IT LOOKED AT BY A MECHANIC ASAP. IF YOU ARE TO GET IN A ACCIDENT IT COULD BE VERY BAD NEWS .. IN FACT YOU MIGHT MAKE THE LOCAL NEWS ! DRIVE SLOW AND CAREFULLY TO YOUR LOCAL MECHANIC OR BODY SHOP, HAVE THEM LOOK AT IT.. IT FREE.. JUST ASK THEM IF THEY COULD TAKE A QUICK LOOK AT THE RUST ON MY FRAME AND IS IT SAFE TO DRIVE ??
IT COULD BE THAT THE CAR IS JUNK AND UNSAFE TO DRIVE .. SORRY ABOUT THIS BUT I CARE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR PASSENGERS . SAFETY FIRST.. RUST NEVER SLEEPS..
BEST OF LUCK .. Jay
Could be the lower control are bushing, it apparently is an issue with that model year. Big bucks (850 CDN$) to fix as the 'whole' front end needs to be partially dropped and both should be done at the same time. A mechanic should be able to see if that is a problem while the car is on the hoist. The mechanic should be able to point to the area or point where the contact is being made. Mine lasted till 100,000 km, I heard it on the second hand test drive ( at 90,00 km) and asked a buddy ( a Toyota Master Mechanic) about it and he made me aware of it; i bought the car anyways.
