All new and reconditioned parts are covered by a 12 month manufacturer's warranty unless specifically stated. You should notify us immediately if a potential warranty situation arises. Any suspected faulty part must be returned to us together with the original invoice or proof of purchase and with as much information relating to the problem as possible. Please note that a defective part must be returned and received by us before it can be exchanged. All warranty parts are subject to a physical inspection. This may involve returning the part to our supplier to verify the fault before it can be exchanged. Defective items are backed 100% and can be returned for exchange only.
The warranty period commences from our invoice date not from the date of installation or first use. This warranty covers defects to the part when fitted and used correctly for normal, everyday vehicle use but does not apply to parts used for any extraordinary or unusual uses such as competition, racing, rallying or parts subsequently stripped down, altered, modified or adapted in any way from their original design or intended use.
Our warranty only covers the parts in question and not to any consequential loss or cost. Claims will not be validated if the failure is caused by mis-use, neglect, overheating, incorrect installation or failure of a related component.
Any part replaced or repaired under warranty, will only benefit from the balance or the cover remaining from the original purchase date. Warranties are not transferable. Acceptance of goods is deemed as acceptance of these terms. The warranties are in addition to, and do not affect your statutory consumer rights.
All returns must be pre-authorised with a returns authorisation (RA) number. Returned products without an RA number will be subject to delay and possible return to sender.
All returns are subject to a physical inspection. We must receive and inspect the product before we can issue with an exchange or credit.
Returns of Parts not Required - within 7 days

If you exercise your statutory right to cancel, you must immediately return to us (at your own cost), the item(s) that you do not wish to keep. Carriage charges are non-refundable. We will acknowledge receipt of your written cancellation by issuing a returns authorisation number which should be quoted and accompanied by a proof of purchase or invoice when returning the goods.

Please note that any cash refund will be subject to a handling charge (typically 15% min £5) to cover administration and re-stocking costs. Carriage charges are non-refundable.
