I see the crack is all the way under the part that is snapped off now just a small bit that holds it on to the rest of the faring part . So it might not been broken before the mechanic taken it off but the looks of it all he needed to to do is touch it and it snapped off . So you can't blame him for that . Find the part and fix it back on or use cable ties. As for claiming no chance..

I believe we have a consensus, the Zip Ties have it .

My father , who was an Aircraft Chief Inspector, always called them Tie Wraps as well. I used to " Obtain " aviation grade Tie Wraps made of nylon that had a tiny metal tab inside that enabled them to be opened again and reused .

Who cares what you call them we all know what they are! there is no point correcting people and pulling them up about it that just makes you look a bigger dick than someone calling them by the wrong name :P

I called biscuit retainers because they stop biscuits moving around.

Pah there’s no plastic in the world that can retain a biscuit from me.
2018 BMW R nineT
“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

They're not to stop you getting to them but to stop them sliding about. The biscuit chastity belt is to stop you getting to them

It is your absolute right to say what you want, we seem to be adopting more and more Americanisms, there have been references recently to "parking lots" instead of car parks. What next? Celebrate 4th of July and Thanksgiving? I also am English and proud of it and I try to use "English" terminology and not Americanisms.
