Warranty

How to warranty a product, and which products qualify for warranty replacement can be found here.

The determination of all warranty claims will be at the sole discretion Blauparts LLC.

All products in our online catalog or sold by Blauparts LLC are warranted to be free from defects from the manufacturers workmanship or material before installation on your vehicle. The entire risk as to quality and performance of such parts is with the buyer. Should such parts prove defective following their purchases, the buyer, and not the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer, assumes the entire cost of necessary servicing or repair. Any alteration, improper use or improper installation will void warranty. Warranty is limited, at our option, to the replacement, or credit of the defective merchandise. Blauparts LLC standard policy regarding 'Limitation of Liability' applies to the manufacturer's limited warranty and Blauparts LLC limited lifetime warranty and does not cover installation, labor charges, or any consequential or incidental damages. For specific details regarding the limitation of liability of this warranty see Limitation of Liability.

Closeout items are sold "AS IS" void from both the manufacturer's warranty and Blauparts LLC limited lifetime warranty consideration.


Limitation of Liability

Blauparts LLC neither assumes, nor authorizes any employee or agent to assume for it any liability in connection with the sale of products or services. The products, services, or information on this site conveyed or purchased over the phone are provided on an 'as is' basis. To the extent permitted by law, Blauparts LLC disclaims all representations, expressed or implied, regarding to information, services, products, warranties, and materials, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement, and implied warranties arising from course of dealing or course of performance.

Blauparts LLC will not be liable for any direct, indirect, special, punitive, incidental, exemplary or consequential damages, or any damages whatsoever, even if Blauparts LLC , has been previously notified of such damages, whether in an action under contract, negligence, or any other theory, arising out of or in connection with the use, inability to use, or performance of information, products, services purchased on your invoice. These limitations will apply notwithstanding to any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitations may not apply to you.

The buyer, in no event whatsoever, shall be entitled to recover from Blauparts LLC any consequential damages (i.e. damages to property, loss of use of vehicle, vehicle failure, loss of time, loss of profits or income, work stoppage, computer malfunction or any other incidental damages). Blauparts LLC is not liable for labor, towing, loss of use of vehicle, travel time, fluids, shipping/freight, rental vehicles or any other incidental cost incurred as a result of this purchase or exchange even if Blauparts LLC has been advised of the possibility of such damages and regardless of the legal theory on which such damages are based, we will not refund any labor costs incurred by you or the installer of any products purchased from Blauparts LLC.
