Return / Warranty Policies
A Returns Merchandise Authorization Form (RMA) must be completed and included in the box with the returned item(s). Please contact our Customer Service department to obtain prior return authorization and a Returns Merchandise Authorization (RMA) Form. Credit for returned items will be issued at the time Sinister Diesel receives, inspects and approves returned merchandise, not when the RMA is requested. If a cancellation of the order is requested after the items have already shipped, the customer must wait for the products to be delivered and then follow the standard Return process. All products must be returned to Sinister Diesel and inspected before a credit memo is issued to the account.
Pay particularly close attention to order details at the time you receive your products to ensure that, should a return be necessary, all required parts and paperwork are included in the return shipment.
Follow instructions and warnings on packaging before opening. Pay attention to the label on the outside of the box to ensure your new parts match the vehicle to which you are fitting them. You are responsible for repackaging returned items to the same standard in which they were received. Poorly repackaged products are highly likely to be damaged during the return and thus credit denied. Customers are reminded to unpack, dry fit and examine all parts before installation.
