Re: Clio III - Rumble Noise - Warranty Claim on Brakes?

It is a little known fact (but one worth bearing in mind) that parts replaced under warranty only come with the remainder of the warranty for those items on the car itself.

An example; say car comes with 3 year warranty, and the battery fails after 2.5 years (due to a manufacturing defect) - replacement battery comes with the remaining 0.5 year-worth of warranty, not the 3 years you would have if you paid even just a fractional amount of the price of replacement.

In other words, there is no seperate parts warranty on items replaced in entirety by warranty - any subsequent issues are dealt with on a 'Goodwill' basis.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
