DAMAGED OR MISSING ITEMS DURING TRANSIT
Missing Items or Items damaged during shipping to the customer from VW Central must be reported within 3 calendar days of delivery. Be sure to thoroughly inspect all items as soon as they are delivered. Any damage reported after 3 calendar days will NOT be eligible for warranty or shipping damage claims. Be sure to keep any and all packing material with the box as it will be needed to properly conduct a shipping claim with the shipping courier. Please be sure to cooperate with the investigation and any questions that the carrier may have during the claim process.
Replacement part(s) will be re-shipped to you as soon as we are informed of an accepted claim by the shipping courier.
Courier Service Providers generally require up to eight business days from the time the claim is initiated. If the replacement part(s) are needed prior to this eight day claim review period, all such parts must be paid for up front by the Customer. If and when the claim is approved, VW Central Ltd will refund the full amount for the parts subject to such approved claim.
If you do not receive your package and the tracking information shows that the package has been delivered, you must notify us within 3 calendar days of the marked delivery date so that we can initiate a lost package tracer with the shipping carrier. Replacement products will not be sent until the shipping carrier completes the tracer request and grants permission for replacement product to be shipped. Depending on the shipping agent used, the required time frame can be up to eight (8) business days from the time the claim is started. Please note that this is a third-party shipping service provider policy and not of VW Central Pty Ltd. If replacement part(s) are needed prior to this wait time for claim approval all such parts must be paid for by the Customer up front. If and when the claim is approved we will refund the full amount for parts subject to such claim back to your original payment method. VW Central does not guarantee that any packages will be credited by the shipping carrier until this process is complete. VW Central will not provide refunds for any lost package under any circumstances unless proper insurance was requested for your order.
All Shipping Charges are non-refundable.

APPLICATION OR INSTALLATION ISSUES
If you need to return a part that does not ﬁt your vehicle and you feel that there is an error in our listing, please contact Customer Service to obtain an RMA number. We will investigate the issue and will make any corrections that are needed. If we ﬁnd an error on our website or on behalf of a VW Central Representative we will provide a shipping label for your return and arrange proper shipment of the correct part(s). All products must be new, unused and must be in the original boxes, including labelling, hardware, etc. Customers are responsible for checking the product description for applications prior to ordering any part(s) to verify that the parts you have selected are appropriate for your vehicle. Part(s) ordered that are listed correctly on our website but ordered in error will require shipping be paid by the customer.
The standard warranty policy is 12 months from the delivery date unless otherwise stated. VW Central PTY. LTD. will only warranty manufacturing defects that are NOT related to installer error, modiﬁcation, improper use or vehicle failure.
All warranty claims will be resolved at the discretion of VW Central. VW Central should be notiﬁed ﬁrst of all claims in order to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
There are two options for warranty claims that are available to Customers within 14 calendar days from the date of delivery:
- Customer pays 100% for the New replacement part(s) to be shipped. Customer then ships back the parts under warranty to VW Central OR to our supplier. Once part(s) are received and inspected a refund will be issued for the part(s) cost provided the product was not damaged as a result of Customer’s failure to follow manufacturer’s instructions.
- Customer ships the part(s) back to VW Central OR our supplier for inspection. Upon warranty veriﬁcation new or repaired part(s) will be shipped to the customer. If the failed part has already been replaced with a new part from another source, VW Central will issue a store credit for the warrantied part upon receipt.
For warranty claims after 14 calendar days from the date of delivery, the customer is responsible for any and all shipping charges to return the product back to VW Central OR our supplier. Warranty part(s) must be returned to VW Central OR our supplier within seven (7) calendar days of the RMA issue date.
All manufacturers require a professional workshop diagnosis / paperwork with a description of the problem/defect in order to be submitted for warranty review. All products must be returned in the original packaging, including labelling, paperwork, hardware, etc. Warranties are non-transferable, and only apply to the original purchaser of the products(s). VW Central will only replace or repair warranty items at our discretion. Refunds are not provided for any warranty transaction. All products returned for warranty inspection are subject to testing and in some cases may require that the products are sent to the manufacturer for inspection. VW Central does not guarantee that any products will be warrantied until this process is complete. In some cases warranties will be denied and VW Central must return the product(s) at the expense of the customer.
VW Central is not responsible for any damages that may have occurred by using the products that we sell. VW Central does not pay for consequential, incidental and contingent damages or costs incurred of any kind, including the cost incurred directly or indirectly in relation to products sold by VW Central including labor or product coverage.

This includes but is also not limited to duties, taxes, and brokerage fees for foreign shipments.
