recon return / remanufacturing services

After you have purchased the service remove the components for remanufacture from your vehicle and drain them of any fluids. Inspect your components to ensure there is no obvious damage / excessive corrosion to the component bodies. Please also check the following.

  1. Brake Calipers, inspect the pipe fitting and bleed nipple ports to ensure there is no damage to threads, damage is 99% of the time repairable but they may be extra cost involved.
  2. Steering Racks, please remove the rack gaiters / boots and inspect the main rack bar. When water ingress has occurred, this bar and its sealing surface may be excessively corroded rendering the rack to be un-repairable. We carry a limited stock of replacement components that will incur extra charges to the service.

Once inspected, package the components securely to ensure that no damage can occur in transit. Damaged or leaking packaging can delay the delivery of the unit to us and can incur extra charges. The Package can be no longer than 100cm in length so if you’re sending a steering rack, please ensure that at least one tie arm is removed. You then have two options.

  1. We will supply you with a prepaid postage label so you can drop the package into any Local Post Office or Parcel Force Depot at your own convenience. The package will then be returned to ourselves the following day.
