Default Mechanic broke PCV grommet/hose

I took my car ('92 Acura Integra GS 1.8 L. non-VTEC, 142k miles)in to
Firestone last week cuz I had a free oil change there, & I had them replace
the old PCV valve, cuz I couldn't get the durn thing out myself. They
finally get it out, in pieces, after an hour of f'n with it, & do the oil
change. The store associate (guy at the desk) says I need to go to the
dealership (I know---"stealership")& get a rubber grommet for the PCV valve
to hold it in place there on the crankcase. Ok, well, I get home & pop the
hood. I look at the new PCV valve to make sure they did in fact replace it,
& they did, but it was just barely hanging in the hole that the PCV valve
fits into, & on top of that some hoses were still hanging free (not attached
to their bracket), & my short ram intake was off the throttle body. So, I
reattach the loose hoses & intake to throttle body, & go to the dealer ship
to get the new grommet (after trying my luck at a few parts houses), & I see
the grommet is actually attached to a 4-5" hose, that the PCV valve fits
into while in the crankcase/engine, that's attached to another small tube &
another grommet, before going into the breather thing. So, question
is---should Firestone charge me for having to get the grommet they broke? I
went ahead & got the extra parts, including the hose/grommet piece, from the
dealer, & I'll take back what is not needed. Thanx for any info!
