One theory is that the light is broken in one of the first scenes of the first episode by an angry husband of a girl that Hank sleeps with. He smashes the front light with a baseball bat and a sound of broken glass is heard. The problem with this theory is that in the next episodes we see that there is more than one dent in the car near the light, so it seems that the light was struck repeatedly - but the husband only hit the car once. However, it is probable that these other dents are from similar attacks by other husbands.
