(8) Where a seller has retaken possession of the goods in accordance with subsection (1) and it is found that an accessory forming part of the goods was removed from the goods before they were repossessed and was not replaced by another accessory of the same kind and value, the seller may sue the buyer for

(a) the value of the accessory; or

(b) the amount by which the sum realized on the sale of the goods falls short of the value which the goods might have had if the accessory had not been removed and the amount of the proper fees, charges, claims and disbursements in connection with the repossession and sale,

whichever is the lesser.

(9) Where the seller sells the goods under subsection (2) or (3), he or she shall pay over to the buyer the surplus remaining after the unpaid purchase price of the goods and the costs of the retaking and keeping possession and the sale have been satisfied.
