1.4 Repair or replacement
(a) Where any failure occurs that is not a major failure pursuant to the Australian Consumer Law contained in Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) this warranty covers only the cost of repair or replacement of the product or part thereof, the decision of which remains solely at the discretion of MAX. Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods.
(b) This warranty does not cover the cost of removal, installation, or any transport. Enhanced finishes, such as colour coating or powder coating are not subjected to this warranty.
(c) Further, damage or defects caused by collision, alteration, improper installation, road hazards, adverse conditions or usage for any other purpose other than normal private usage are not covered by this warranty. This warranty is in lieu of all other warranties expressed or implied but does not exclude the guarantees available to consumers pursuant to the Australian Consumer Law located in Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) for eligible customers.
(d) Where spot lights are mounted on welded on light tabs – MAX recommends that the maximum weight of the light should not exceed 1.75kg. Where lights are being used in extreme or continual rough conditions causing the light mounting point to be subject to ongoing vibration lights should be stayed to reduce vibration and fatigue. The MAX warranty will not be valid when a product has been used outside of these guidelines.
