C. Warranty Processing
If a defect is found to be remedied under this warranty please contact our Customer Service team by email email@example.com. Registration of warranty claims through an authorized Ford Dealer is not permissible.
Ford of Britain reserves the right, under the guarantee, to request the return of the affected parts in order to check these parts for the existence of a possible warranty claim. If you fail to return a component requested for testing, the warranty claim will be rejected as unfounded.If a warranty claim is confirmed after the test, the component concerned will either be repaired by an authorized Ford service facility or replaced free of charge. In some cases, however, it may be possible for the authorized Ford Service Company to request payment. In these cases, legitimate warranty claims are subject to a subsequent refund.
