159 accident damage

Have a 159 JTD Sportwagen which i used to hit a badger, destroying most of front bumper and a lot behind it. It's been in for repair but i am not happy with whats been done or not done. Looking at front through central grille, to the left there is a large pipe attached to a vertical bracket by means of an electrical tie strap. The end of the pipe is white on the inside but it is not connected to anything. Surely it is not left open. Taken car to my local dealer who says because car is not current, he can't remember where pipe goes, but that it shouldn't be by this vertical bracket.
Also behind the mesh grille on left there is a large diameter plastic duct which had a boss facing forward which was probably for a bracket. This has broken off and repairer doesn't know what it's for.
Hope someone can help.
