Terms & Conditions of Warranty
Volkswagen UK offers a two year warranty against manufacturing defects for VWG original parts.
The warranty on original parts applies when the part is purchased through VW Direct.
A copy of the original invoice must be supplied for a warranty claim to be considered & the part in question returned to us at your own cost.
General exclusions for warranty include but are not limited to:-
The part was not fitted according to the instructions of Volkswagen Group, available via ErWin
Failure to use all associated parts as required by VWG and/or any relevant manufacturer standards
The customer is unable to produce the original (or a copy of) the VW Direct invoice containing the part number and purchase date
The defect is caused by modification of the part
The customer failed to report the defect as soon as it became apparent or did not allow the required repairs to be carried out as soon as possible
The fault was caused by outside influences, such as fire, chemical or vegetation damage, flying gravel etc.
Parts have been fitted to vehicles for which they were not specifically intended
The customer has failed to follow the regulations for use of the vehicle, such as;
The vehicle is operated long term in a country for which it has not been specified
The vehicle was overburdened or used for purposes for which it was not intended (e.g. racing, off road driving etc.)
Where driving style and external factors can influence the lifetime of the component, items will only be considered under the terms of the warranty for a period of six months or 6,000 miles (whichever comes first).

VW Direct must be notified of any potential claim within 24 hours of the date of failure.
In some instances, depending on the suspected defect, the customer may have to attend VW Direct for diagnosis and therefore the vehicle needs to be in a suitable condition to assess whether the fault is a manufacturing defect or as a result of fitment.
A replacement part will be invoiced and credited once a defect has been confirmed & no claim for labour or other expenses, such as Car hire or Hotel costs will be honored.
