Red face What do you guys think?

Ok here's my situation.
My 75 year old grandfather bought a '83' 944 about a year ago. I guess he had to find out about all this Porsche talk he's been hearing from me.

Well after about three months of ownership he decides to take a drive up in the hills. Going around a curve he hits some sand and goes over a small embankment, rolling on top of a huge boulder. The body was fine, but the drivers side suspension was completely torn off! Destroying the rack along with it. He didn't get hurt at all.

Now to the point of this whole thing. I posted a want for a rack & pinion in the 944 classifieds and got a response. Everything was cool......until I got the part! The guy sends me a rack with no pinion! Now how am I suppose to use that with no pinion gear? He claims to have put it in the package, but I soon realized through reading between the lines he left it attached to the car.
He claims the car is now gone and offered a small refund. I feel it doesn't matter it's still junk to us. I told him to give us a full refund, but he still refuses.

What do you guys think? Am I being unreasonable in just asking for what we paid for? I am still new to all this buying over the net. My trust in people needs to be a little more salted.
