Ryco Guarantee

Replacement Guarantee

In the unlikely event that a Ryco product is found to be defective due to defects in material and/or workmanship, we will replace it for you free of charge (subject to conditions).

What is covered by this voluntary warranty?

In addition to your rights under the Australian Consumer Law, GUD Automotive Pty Ltd (GUD) provides a LIMITED WARRANTY for RYCO products that expires either 1 YEAR after the installation of the product or upon the expiration of the operation period recommended by the original equipment manufacturer for the vehicle/engine (whichever comes first).

During this voluntary warranty period if any engine or equipment is damaged as a result of the use of a proven defective RYCO product, GUD Automotive will pay to restore the engine or equipment to a condition equivalent to the state of the engine or equipment immediately prior to the damage. Consequential damage claims will not be covered by this voluntary warranty.

This warranty does not apply to product that:

  • has been subject to misuse, neglect, negligence, damage or accident
  • that has been improperly maintained, operated or installed
  • has not been installed in accordance with the installation instructions in effect at the time of installation
  • has not been installed in accordance with the vehicle, engine or equipment manufacturers’ recommendations
  • has been fitted to any vehicle that has been changed or modified from original specification
  • has not been installed in accordance with current Ryco published catalogue vehicle listings
  • is subject to any other external factor outside the control of GUD Automotive

It may be necessary for GUD Automotive to inspect any engine damage.  Contact must be made with GUD Automotive to discuss the defective Ryco product before any repairs are carried out. 

GUD Automotive will undertake the following actions (if and when required):

  • If GUD Automotive requires an inspection of the vehicle or engine to be undertaken, it will arrange (at its expense) for an employee or agent to carry out the inspection as soon as practicable, we will undertake this no more than 14 days after being notified of the defective product. 
  • If an inspection of the vehicle or engine is not required, GUD Automotive may arrange, at its expense, to collect the defective product. 
  • Within 21 days of carrying out an inspection or receiving a defective product for examination, GUD Automotive will determine whether the product was in fact defective and whether it is covered by this voluntary warranty.
  • In some instances where products are required to be sent to overseas to GUD Automotive affiliates for further assessment, the response period may be extended.
