Advance Auto Parts Limited Warranty Policy
General Limited Warranty Period and Applicability
The warranty period is 90 days from your date of purchase or any longer warranty period that may be printed on your original sales receipt. During the warranty period, we will replace or refund, at our option, any new part that fails due to a defect in materials or workmanship under normal use and service after proper installation. Simply return the part along with your original sales receipt to any Advance Auto Parts store. You must be the original purchaser of the part and still own the vehicle on which it was installed. This warranty is not transferrable. Replacement parts are warranted for 90 days from the date of exchange or the remainder of the warranty period on the original part, whichever is longer.
Refunds will only be considered if you bring the defective part to an Advance Auto Parts store along with your original sales receipt within 45 days from the original date of purchase. Refunds will be issued in accordance with our Refund Policy.
Battery Limited Warranty
The battery Free Replacement Period begins the day of purchase and expires at the end of the Free Replacement Period that is printed on your original sales receipt. This period does not renew when the battery is replaced during the Free Replacement Period. There is no other warranty outside of the Free Replacement Period that began when the battery was purchased. Installation or use of an automotive battery in any other type of vehicle or equipment voids your warranty.
What is Not Covered
- Failure due to: accident or collision; misuse, abuse or modification; chemical fallout; salt, hail, or other environmental conditions including natural disasters; marine use; improper installation; installation of an incorrect part; and damages caused by other faulty parts.
- Parts under manufacturer's recall for a related problem.

Commercial Use Vehicles
Parts installed on commercial-use vehicles are warranted for 90 days from the date of purchase only, regardless of any longer warranty period that may be printed on your sales receipt.
Certain parts must meet specific installation requirements. Failure to provide proof that these requirements have been met will void your warranty.

Warranty is limited to replacement of the crankshaft and bearings prior to installation. Warranted crankshafts that are returned must include the bearings supplied with the unit.
