Warranty;

Where a warranty issue is present (see below compressor warranty for additional criteria required for compressor warranty) th e replacement part must be supplied by Auto Air Conditioning Ltd and will be invoiced accordingly.

Upon return of failed item (with a copy PRODUCT RETURNS FORM) credit will be arranged once inspection has been fully carried out and item agreed as warranted, should the item be deemed as not faulty (fault of installation /incorrect installation procedures/damage during installation) then the item will be returned with no credit and will remain payable to the prices on the replacement part invoice that refers. It may be necessary to return said item to original manufacturer where there decision is final and replacement part invoice rema ins payable. Warranty is from the original sale date for the original supplied item, the warranty is not extended when replacing failed unit with a replacement.

Compressors Installation procedure;

All compressors should be replaced once a full system flush has been undertaken followed with a replacement receiver drier/accumulator and expansion valve/orifice tube. At this time the system needs to be checked for evidence of why the original unit failed (fans working correctly, no blockages, system cycling at correct intervals, correct oil type/qty) in certain circumstances it may be necessary to change the condenser. Failure to do so will invalidate warranty.

Compressor warranty;

Compressors that have failed may be subject to further investigation by the manufacturer in which case it will be necessary for the original invoice stating exactly what has been changed and work carried out (to also include the mileage and current mileage when part was changed along with retur ns form) to be supplied, failure to do so will invalidate warranty from the manufacturer. Remanufactured compressors will also require the same information as above.
