While it sounds bad, if it was the switch that failed and wasn't a part, they worked on during the collision repairs they are not at fault and shouldn't pay for it. You said the part isn't on that side of the car so technically they are committing insurance fraud on your behalf. This would be the same thing if you were in a store, and they told you that you have to pay for the TV that fell over in electronics while you were overlooking grills in the garden center. You were in the store after all. Now if the issue was that they had to replace, say, the radiator and the replacement leaked I would say they are responsible for replacing it, or if they bolted the bumper cover on and it fell off the next day. However, holding them responsible for a part then didn't touch, nope.
