8 - Warranty :
The diesel particulate filters and catalytic converters marketed by Krosfou are covered by a 3-year WARRANTY limited to a use not exceeding 60,000 miles.
The warranty period begins on the date of receipt of the product. To be covered by their respective warranty, particulate filters and catalytic converters must comply with the following conditions: their installation must have been carried out in an assembly/garage center specialized in the replacement of exhaust systems, the defects having directly damaged the part to be replaced must have been eliminated, and the assembly instructions must have been followed. The manufacturer's instructions must also be strictly observed: never start by pushing or towing, never check the operation of the engine with the ignition wires open, replace the spark plugs and engine oil regularly, and periodically check the operation of the engine at a specialized automotive technical control center.
Specific conditions that must be observed for diesel particulate filters/DPF: the use of the vehicle should not be limited to short journeys, indeed if the engine does not reach its operating temperature, the soot emitted during combustion and intercepted by the filter, can not be burned by the passive regeneration system, which has the effect of reducing the life of the DPF.
Specific conditions to be observed for catalytic converters: the car must only run on unleaded petrol, the car must have been originally equipped with a catalytic converter, the Lambda sensor must be replaced at the same time as the used catalytic converter (after 50,000 to 60,000 mi.), if it is necessary to install a connection in front of the catalytic converter, only copper connections must be used while checking the tightness of the exhaust system, finally the catalytic converter must be adapted to the engine displacement.
The warranty is limited to replacing a reference with another identical reference. Disassembly, immobilization of the vehicle or any other costs incurred by the customer are in no case supported by Krosfou. The warranty can only apply to parts assembled by the assembly center/garage having established the invoice in the name of the buyer of the product reference. Krosfou can not be held liable for any indirect damage, for any loss of profit or turnover in any way whatsoever.
In order not to block your vehicle, we can sell you an equivalent reference pending the guarantee agreement of our factory. This will be refunded after expertise/agreement of our factory.
Products whose failure is the result of negligence, or improper use of Krosfou diesel particulate filters or catalytic converters, will loose their warranty.
9 - Disputes :
These Terms of Sales are subject to British law.
Krosfou can not be held liable for damages of any kind, whether tangible or intangible, which could result from a malfunction or a misuse of the products sold. Krosfou's liability can not in any case exceed the amount of the payment made for the order giving rise to that said liability.
Complaints or special requests will always be welcomed with kindness for those who make the effort to reveal a problem, and Krosfou will make its best to find an amicable solution.
Otherwise, the Commercial Court of Paris has exclusive jurisdiction, regardless of the terms of the order, the place of delivery or the method of payment accepted.
