This standard warranty does not cover installation labor, removal, or rental car expenses that may result from a warranty claim. One year and lifetime warranties are available on all used engines for an additional charge. These extended warranties may be purchased with various labor coverage options. See your warranty card or ask your sales rep for details and warranty upgrades.

Bavarian Auto Recycling will reimburse all ground shipping costs for defective items returned within the stated warranty period. Please call your sales rep to be issued a return authorization number. Do not attempt to return merchandise without first obtaining these authorization numbers.

  2. Pack the items in the original boxes together with the original packing slip or invoice.

  3. All returns must be sent prepaid - no COD or collect shipments will be accepted. If we shipped you the wrong part or if the item is defective or damaged, we will reimburse you for the regular ground shipping costs.
