    Warranty claim procedures.

     

    If a Weistec product is within the warranty period and you wish to make a claim, please follow the following procedure:

     

    1. Email Weistec at tech@weistec.com  Include the following information:

     

    • Weistec Serial Number (if applicable).
    • Copy of original invoice on which the product was purchased (must be dated and show retail store name).
    • Year, make, model, vehicle mileage and engine specifications of the vehicle.
    • Number of miles on the Weistec product.
    • Description of the problem.

     

    2. Weistec will then offer suggestions to help you in troubleshooting or will issue a return authorization (R.A.) number to return the product for warranty evaluation.

     

    3. If you have been issued an R.A. number, you must "safely package" each product, which means you must plug or seal all oil and air openings, place the properly plugged and sealed product(s) within a shipping box strong enough to hold the weight of the product(s) and to maintain its shape during shipping with adequate packaging material so that the product(s) will not hit other product(s), component(s), or the side of the box during shipping. You may want to use a professional shipping company. Clearly mark the R.A. number in large (approximately 2") alphanumeric characters in two locations on the outside of the box with a bold marker.

     

    4. Include in the shipping box the following items:

     

    • Serial number of the supercharger (if applicable).
    • Copy of original invoice on which the product was purchased (must be dated and show distributor name).
    • Year, make, model, vehicle mileage, and engine specifications of the vehicle.
    • Number of miles on the Weistec product.
    • Description of the problem you observed.
    • Return authorization number (R.A.).
    • Address to which the product is to be shipped after inspection.

     

    5. Issuance of an RA does not mean that the Weistec product will be covered by one or more of the Weistec limited warranties. If the Weistec product is not covered by warranty, then you will be charged; and you agree to pay, the minimum inspection charge plus any charges of repair or replacement authorized by you orally or in writing.

     

    6. Ship the properly packaged and marked box via United Parcel Service (800) 742-5877, www.ups.com, or other carrier, prepaid and insured for the retail value of the product being returned to:

     

    Weistec Engineering

    Technical Department

    1266 N. La Loma Cirlce

    Anaheim, CA 92806

    USA

    R.A. number ___________

     

    If a Weistec limited warranty applies, your product will be repaired or replaced at Weistec's option and you will be supplied with an invoice for freight prepaid (excluding any international taxes, tariffs, customs and/or duties which must be paid by you). If a Weistec limited warranty does not apply, we will advise you of the reason for denial and explain the costs involved in repair or replacement of the Weistec product. After relaying this information Weistec will, at your option, either proceed with the repairs as quoted or return the Weistec product(s) in the condition it/they are in at the time of inspection of the warranty evaluation by Weistec. If the warranty does not apply and you do not want Weistec to repair or replace the Weistec product, you will still be charged a disassembly and inspection charge for the product and the product will be returned UPS COD, insured for the new retail replacement value. This means you must pay any disassembly and/or inspection charges, return shipping, and insurance charges to UPS before the Weistec product will be returned. The minimum charge for product inspection is(but not limited to) $50.  Weistec Limited Warranty is non-transferable and only applies to the original purchaser.
