The OEX Warranty does not apply to failure or damage to a product caused by incorrect or faulty fitment, accidental or intentional damage, failure of other products, incorrect application, environmental damage or repair or modification carried out by anyone other than GPC Asia Pacific.  Use of refrigerant gas other than that specified below and in the product specifications may cause damage to which the OEX Warranty will not apply.

The OEX Warranty does not cover charges incurred for rectification, de-installation, re-installation and shipping unless the charges have been previously approved in writing by GPC Asia Pacific.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, GPC Asia Pacific excludes any liability generally and under this OEX Warranty for lost profit, lost revenue, or any hire car, towing or accommodation costs associated directly or indirectly with the failure of any OEX product. All OEX products come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law.  You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other loss or damage.  You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

R12 and R134A and in some cases R404 are the only refrigerants recognised or recommended and approved by the O.E manufacturers for use with automotive products.  GPC Asia Pacific applies these recommendations to OEX products.  For more information concerning any OEX air conditioning components, tools & equipment and common possible causes for their failure, please refer to our “Common causes for air conditioning component, tools & equipment failure” document, by clicking the link.
