The purchaser is responsible for the cost of returning the product to GruppeM or the applicable, including shipping costs and costs incurred for removing or installing the product from or on the vehicle.

Any product returned based on a warranty claim must include (1) the product, (2) a fully completed RGA form with the RGA number issued by GruppeM clearly visible on the package containing the returned product, and (3) a sales receipt verifying the date of purchase. Once the product and claim are received by GruppeM or its authorized dealer, GruppeM or its dealer will promptly evaluate the product, verify the date of purchase, and investigate the claim. If the product is determined to be defective in materials or workmanship and covered under the Limited Warranty, you will be notified and a replacement will be shipped to you within a reasonable amount of time. If the claim is denied, you will be provided with an explanation of the reasons for the denial.
