Euro Car Parts Lifetime Warranty Terms and Conditions
(Covering Lifetime Warranty parts only or parts and labour)
Euro Car Parts Limited, T2 Birch Coppice Business Park, Danny Morson Way, Dordon, Tamworth, B78 1SE., company number 02680212 (“ECP”) shall provide a lifetime warranty on a range of qualifying parts. The warranty cover for such qualifying parts is subject to the below terms and conditions.
As a non-insured product, this lifetime warranty falls outside the remit of the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”).
The financial warranty will be solely provided and administered by ECP, part of the LKQ Group of companies and not the individual manufacturer of the parts. In the event that ECP ceases trading there is no dedicated financial backing.
These terms apply to Business Customers only as the lifetime warranty has only been sold to our trade customers in the course of a business, trade or profession (“Business Customer”).
WE DO NOT SELL DIRECT TO RETAIL USERS UNDER THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
1. Application of the Warranty:
a. The lifetime warranty will only be applicable to certain qualifying parts considered as mechanical components only and which will be advised at the time of your purchase (“Qualifying Parts”).
b. The lifetime warranty runs from the date of the initial purchase of the part as per the original sales invoice. For the avoidance of doubt, any future replacements of qualifying parts shall not render the warranty period from commencing from the date of replacement.
c. The lifetime warranty will apply per part number. Should you purchase a number of parts with the same part number, on one single invoice, a lifetime warranty for each part number or for the combined value of the same part numbers, will be required.
d. Subject to these terms, the lifetime warranty is limited to three replacements of the Qualifying Part in the lifetime only.
e. Proof of purchase of the original sales invoice which confirms the purchase of the lifetime warranty must be provided to qualify for use of a lifetime warranty under these terms.

c. All collision parts (including Platinum Plus parts where different warranty terms apply), tools and paint are exempt from these lifetime warranty provisions.

3. All Warranties are Null and Void if:
a. The lifetime warranty has been transferred (see below) or is being claimed for a different vehicle registration mark referred to on the original sales invoice.

However, the replacement Qualifying Part shall be of the same specification and correct for application on your vehicle (as detailed on the original sales invoice) as the initial part supplied.
e. Any “Recommended Installation Procedures” provided by the manufacturer of the Qualifying Part must be followed by the installer to maintain warranty coverage.
f. While most fluids have been drained from our Qualifying Parts, it is your responsibility to completely drain and replace fluids, lubricants, antifreeze and filters with replacements that are fresh, clean and approved by the vehicle manufacturer.

You must furnish ECP with such information as ECP may reasonably require (including any information required under these lifetime warranty terms), together with proof of the vehicle’s regular maintenance as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer in the owner’s manual.
