Bessler Auto Parts Limited Warranty Terms

General Requirements:

Your recycled part shall be covered by this limited warranty, unless specifically excluded in writing at the time of sale.

This warranty applies to original purchaser of the part for 90 days or longer, if an extended warranty is purchased. Extended warranty is available as an additional purchase. Sheet metal has a limited one-year warranty for corrosion. U-Pull parts are guaranteed for 30 days exchange only and no labor, or extended warranty is available.

If any defect is discovered during the warranty period, Bessler Auto Parts must be notified immediately. Any repairs or work performed must be authorized before work is started. Any repair (including but not limited to removing the part) that is initiated without authorization will void the warranty. Transportation expenses on parts that are being returned are excluded from the warranty. Bessler Auto Parts reserves the rights to repair, replace or refund the purchase price of any part at their discretion.

Any improper use or abuse, including but not limited to racing, pulling, overheating or low oil in engines or transmissions, neglect, careless handling or damage resulting from improper installation, modification or repair will void this warranty. Existing problems with the vehicle that will cause damage to the recycled part will also void the warranty.

Labor cost for removing and replacing the part or transferring parts from the original part to the replacement part is excluded from this warranty unless a labor warranty is purchased at the time of sale. Labor warranty payout is ONE TIME only. An additional labor warranty can be purchased at the time of part replacement.

The warranty period on any part starts at the time of sale, not upon installation. The liability and obligation of Bessler Auto Parts under this warranty shall not include any inconvenience, transportation, towing, downtime, direct, indirect or consequential damage or delay resulting from any defect.
