1. WARRANTY

Conditions relating to new goods:
1.1 No representation, condition, warranty or promise (expressed or implied) other than those required by law apply to each and every sale of new goods. Goods are warranted free from defective workmanship and material provided that the goods or engine are unmodified in anyway. Warranty of any part is subject to normal use and only for the purpose of repairing or rebuilding a motor vehicle to Manufacturers standard specifications and is void if not installed by a qualified fitter. Where a qualified fitter continues with a partially completed job neither the fitter nor STA Parts are liable for the condition of parts or work commenced prior to the fitter continuing with the job. STA Parts may require written evidence from the fitter, and it is STA Parts sole discretion before acting on any warranty claim.

1.2 At no time will a warranty be extended beyond that of the manufacturers warranty period or conditions. The warranty is limited to replacing or repairing any defective goods returned to STA Parts in accordance with the procedure set out in these terms and conditions provided that STA Parts is satisfied that the defects were defects in manufacture. Warranty covers only replacement or repair of the product itself and not the cost of removal or reinstallation. STA Parts shall not be liable for any financial losses or damage sustained by the Buyer, including but not limited to, repair, inspection or replacement costs, any charges for hire or purchase of replacement equipment/goods, labour, towage or storage charges. STA Parts liability will not exceed the purchase price of the goods.
