My sensor behind the emblem does indeed have adjustment screw

2 actually.
I will mention again that there is no damage to the car .
All plastic bits and pieces are in its original position.

When this is solved i will give you a detailed updated so you/ we can help other members :-)

if the sensor is actually physically misaligned, it will usually also refuse to be recalibrated until that is solved. ??
How can i align it when it will refuse to be calibrated , hmm

You need to use the proper alignment target.

Cool, very wrong i was then stating that radar sensors behind emblems have no adjustment screws. Mea culpa.

You cannot align it if you dont have the proper set-up to run the procedure. However, it was meant as an extra reason to make 100% sure there is nothing out of place on your car before having someone calibrate it.
