Europarts prides itself in providing only high quality products supplied either by an authorized dealer (OE), the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), or an OE-equivalent aftermarket supplier. However, we know that occasionally you may need to return a part due to failure during the warranty period.
General Warranty Information

Additional Warranty Information Regarding:
Air Conditioning Parts & Turbochargers
Brake Pads and Rotors
Shock Absorbers carry a Limited Lifetime Warranty which means it is limited to defects in materials and workmanship only. Normal wear and tear can be expected and is not covered under the Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Turbochargers, Air Conditioning Compressors and related components must follow a strict installation protocol. Failure to follow the specified procedures often results in a catastrophic failure. Therefore, warranty claims have a specific criteria that include installation documentation. Please read the the specific warranty category for these items. A link to A/C and Turbocharger warranty info can be found on any turbocharger or compressor on our website.
Brake Pad squealing and Brake Rotor warpage are often the result of driving conditions, driving style, or caused by related parts that were not replaced at the same time. Squealing or rotor warpage are not valid warranty claims unless installation and break in period were to specifications, and the problem began immediately upon installation. Europarts must be notified immediately and the parts must be returned within 30 days of original invoice date.
Procedure for all warranty claims:
