Warranty

Please refer to product listings for specific warranty information, as items/brands all vary. Warranties are all non-transferable and only apply to the original buyer. If you believe you have a defective part that is under warranty, please follow all troubleshooting procedures, noted below.

  • Switch components from side to side in order to isolate the issue

  • Bulbs/Ballasts – bulbs should be tested first, then ballasts once confirmed bulbs are not defective.

After troubleshooting and a failed component has been identified, please contact us for the next step for your warranty replacement.

Products must be purchased through Performance Automotive Lighting in order to receive your warranty replacement. Products are always covered under their respective manufacturer warranty period, however, even though a product may be under warranty, the labor associated with the replacement of the product is subject to a case-by-case determination for charges.

Product& Services Warranty

Installations 

Any vehicle that Performance Automotive Lighting installs products on will carry a 30 day warranty. Products installed must be purchased from Performance Automotive Lighting in some capacity. Products purchased elsewhere will not have an installation warranty or an individual product warranty covered by Performance Automotive Lighting. Warranty for products installed will be covered by that individual product's warranty. please reference the above warranty terms. The labor associated with an installation/replacement of a component is not covered and will be considered billable hours.

HID Products

All products related to a HID system including, bulbs, ballasts, harnessing, and other various key components are covered by a minimum 2-year warranty. All products including HID products must be purchased through Performance Automotive Lighting in order for warranty replacements to be issued. if products are purchased elsewhere, the customer will assume the duty of warranty replacements.

Projector Retrofit Craftsmanship Warranty

Projector conversions carry a 3 year Craftsmanship Warranty which covers flaw or defects directly related to the retrofit conversion performed by Performance Automotive lighting. Shipping to Performance Automotive Lighting for warranty work will not be covered under warranty. Return shipping to the customer is covered. A return shipping label will be provided once the warranty work is complete. There are cases where headlights, especially non-oem housings, have flaws where alignment is affected despite the projector aiming correctly during test phase. Certain mounting points, reflector bowls, and oem projector bolting points may differ slightly which calls for one-off processes. With that being said, we cannot guarantee 100% of the time that a perfectly aligned output will be achieved. However, if such a case were to happen, our warranty will cover the work to remedy the issue. When the job calls for it, we open every housing, aim the stock beam pattern, and match the exact output pattern with the aftermarket or second hand light source being fitted to the lamp. This assures the alignment matches as close as possible to the stock pattern.

Condensation Warranty

Condensation is typical with almost every light. It is a physical reaction with dissimilar inside and outside temperatures. We cannot guarantee that a resealed, or even a new unopened headlight, will not condensate. We take caution when opening and resealing headlights to the best of our ability, but if the headlight has been opened previously by anyone else, the warranty will not apply. If at any point the product that Performance automotive lighting opened and resealed are opened again by any third party or the customer, the warranty is void. Performance Automotive Lighting is not responsible for physical defects causing condensation that were caused by anyone other than Performance Automotive Lighting. Any condensation that occurs during a 1 year period, starting from date of purchase, will be covered by Performance Automotive Lighting if condensation is directly related to work done by Performance Automotive Lighting. If discovered that a rear housing cap has been removed for a given reason, and the resulting effect is condensation, the warranty will not cover the cost to reseal. Shipping costs are to be covered by the customer. All headlights resealed will use new/additional butyl. We use Morimoto RetroRubber butyl sealant. All lights that have existing butyl will have it smoothed out and larger chunks from the lenses removed. If lights are sealed with permaseal, all existing sealant is removed and replaced with butyl.

Angel Eye / Strip / Demon Eye Warranty​

Performance Automotive Lighting supplies only high quality and trusted LED powered angel eyes, strips, and demon eyes. However, due to the nature of the environment where these products are installed, they are only covered under the products warranty period. Any related labor to repair or replacement, will be charged directly to the customer. Return shipping will be covered by Performance Automotive Lighting, but we ask the customer to cover shipping to us. All products will be installed using the manufacturers recommended practices. LED drivers will be outside of the headlight housings, or otherwise easily accessible and replaceable. 

Painting Warranty

Due to the sealed environment of a headlight, haze on the inner lenses can form over time; which is not covered under any warranty. All paint jobs done will allow time to off gas and cure. This amount of time is dependent on the type of paint used. The warranty period for painting is 1 year. If any portion of the housing is directly in front of the projector, it is possible that the paint becomes greasy or even bubbles up; which also is not covered under warranty. We will notify the customer in situations of high risk for paint bubble in the presence of high heat caused by projector lens light focusing on the affected area. If the customer does not accept and area to remain unpainted, the risk of paint bubbling is assumed by the customer.

Aftermarket / Non-OEM Headlights Warranty

Craftsmanship warranty is valid for both oem and non-oem housings, but the performance of the housing is not covered by the craftsmanship warranty. Non-oem aftermarket housings often times use lesser quality components. If it is found that the non-oem nature of the housing directly causes a failure in the build, the warranty will not apply. We determine the warranty claim on a per case basis. When we source headlights for the customer we use our experience to select the best option for aftermarket housings. If the customer sources aftermarket headlights it is highly recommended that they consult us, as we cannot guarantee the quality of some brands.

Standard labor rate will apply to fix the issue, and shipping costs will not fall onto Performance automotive lighting. If at any point the lens starts to oxidize, the customer assumes responsibility. Aftermarket lenses, especially in lesser brands, tend to not have the same quality coating/plastic which causes a quicker oxidation window. Performance automotive lighting recommends treating all headlight housings like vehicle paint which means always keep a surface coating applied to headlight lenses. Wax, synthetic wax sealant, or even a ceramic coating is recommended. Laminated lenses is also an acceptable solution. Wax and sealant are products that can be applied immediately after housings are resealed. Ceramic coating and laminated products are not applied by Performance Automotive Lighting.

Permanently Sealed Headlights - Assumption of Risk

Some automotive headlights use a permanent sealant between the front clear lens and the back housing to create a permanent bond. This bond provides superior protection against water and debris from entering. However, when it comes to separating the lens from the back housing it creates certain risks that we would like you to be aware of. 

The temperatures and the number of times that the headlight is baked is increased to loosen the permanent sealant. This usually requires several rounds in the oven to separate the lens from the back housing. Once separated, the back housing and front lens housing need to go individually to soften the remainder of the sealant. Once the original sealant is fully removed, it is then replaced with our high quality Morimoto RetroRubber butyl sealant. 

Due to the strength of the original bond, along with the increased times and temperatures the lights are heated at, some risks are present: 

-Edges of the back housing and front clear lens cover may have additional pry marks 
-Mounting tabs may tear 
-Amber reflectors may become deformed 
-Micro-fractures may occur in the front clear lens cover on low quality lenses due to increased temperatures 
-Screws may be used to around the housing to hold the lens cover tight to the back housing of the headlight. *Usually necessary in order to keep water and debris from entering the headlight. 
By providing Performance Automotive Lighting with permanently sealed headlight housings, you assume all risks stated above.

 

Important Shipping Information

When shipping products to Performance Automotive Lighting for services, please reference the below:

1) Include all rubber boots that go around the bulb openings in the rear of the head lamps. These will be used to ensure a good seal around the plug, bulb, or socket. If you do not have these caps, you risk having debris and possibly condensation inside the lights if water gets inside. 
2) Include all bulbs whenever possible to seal the lamps for return shipping. 
3) Protect the outer lenses of the housings; never let them rub on the bottom of the box, Believe it or not cardboard will scratch them. Best bet is to wrap the lights in plastic wrap or put a garbage bag around them to keep dirt off them. 
3) We highly recommend using bubble wrap going around each housing at least twice and still padding the box very, very well. 
4) Pad the tabs if needed. The mounting tabs and corners are the things that will break if not padded, especially tabs protruding from corners. 

Key Notes (from experience): 

a) if the housings can move in the box then it could break 
b) if a tab is touching the side of the box it can break off 
c) if part of the light is touching the side of the box, the conversion can be damaged 

5) Once placed into your box, bolster the area between the housings and the box walls with smaller boxes, folded boxes/triangles of cardboard, or broken up Styrofoam. This will prevent any box crushing from touching the lamps inside. Do not rely solely on packing peanuts to protect the housings, they will settle during shipment and leave the lamps vulnerable. 

6) It is our experience that UPS ground is the most cost effective and safest shipping option for your head lamps. UPS ground is mostly handled by actual employees. UPS also places much more responsibility on packages insured for $1000 or more, a nominal cost for safety. In most cases we encourage you to place at least $1000 insurance on your housings when sending them to us. This ensures ample coverage should the worst ever happen. 

7) Include a description as to the specific details of your retrofit in the spaces provided below. Please print this form out and include it with your shipment. Details sometimes get missed through email or phone correspondence, it is very important we get this right for you the first time. 

The customer is responsible for any and all items shipped to Performance Automotive Lighting. If we determine damaged was caused by transit, any and all craftsmanship warranty is voided if the product is still usable and we move forward with the services.

By emailing us with tracking information for any products sent in, you are agreeing to provide satisfactory products. if at any time we determine products are unusable, the customer is responsible for return shipping.

Does Affirm do a credit check, and how does it impact my credit score?
Affirm does a “soft” credit check, which verifies the customer's identity but does not affect a customer’s credit score. Affirm's underwriting model does not use a hard credit check. There is no effect on a consumer's credit score when they apply for an Affirm loan. 
Why was I denied financing by Affirm?
The merchant has no information regarding a customer's financing denial. Affirm strives to offer all credit-worthy applicants financing with Affirm, but isn’t able to offer credit in every case. Affirm will send you an email with more details about its decision. Unfortunately Affirm’s decision is final.
Why was I asked to verify my identity?
If Affirm has difficulty confirming your identity, you may need to provide more information. Affirm uses modern technology to confirm your identity, including verifying your address or full SSN, or requesting a photo of your ID. Affirm takes these steps in some cases to counter fraud and provide the most accurate credit decision they can.
Why was I prompted to enter my income?
Affirm may sometimes need more information about your finances and your ability to repay in order to make a credit decision. Your income gives Affirm additional insight into your ability to repay.
Why was I prompted for my checking account?
Affirm may sometimes need more information about your finances and your ability to repay in order to make a credit decision. If you are prompted to link your checking account and would like to proceed, please provide the login information for your online bank account. Affirm does not store your online login credentials—they are transmitted securely to your bank.
If Affirm asks you to link your checking account, Affirm won’t be able to offer you credit if:
1) Your bank is not listed
2) You choose not to link your checking account
3) You don’t use online banking
4) The username and / or password you provide is incorrect
5) You're unable to successfully connect your checking account
Why is my bank not listed?
Although Affirm is continually adding support for additional banks, they aren’t able to connect to every bank at the present time. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you’re unable to connect your bank, you’ll need to complete your purchase with another payment method.
Why was I prompted for a down payment?
Affirm isn’t always able to offer credit for the full amount you request. In these cases, Affirm asks you to make a down payment with a debit card for the remainder of your purchase. The down payment amount can’t be changed and must be made upon confirming your loan and before the loan offer expires.
Will I see how much interest I am paying prior to accepting my loan?
Yes! Affirm works hard to be completely transparent. You’ll see the amount of interest you’ll owe on the terms page and again on the loan confirmation page. If you pay off your loan early, you’ll receive a rebate for any interest that hasn’t yet accrued.
Why can't customers outside the U.S. use Affirm?
Affirm is available only to shoppers residing in the United States. Affirm hopes to expand its services to customers outside the U.S. in the future.
What are Affirm’s fees?
The annual percentage rate (APR) on an Affirm loan ranges from 0% to 30%. Affirm discloses any required fees upfront before you make a purchase, so you know exactly what you will pay for your financing. Affirm does not charge any hidden fees, including annual fees.  
Why is my Affirm interest rate so high?
When Affirm determines your annual percentage rate (APR), it evaluates a number of factors, including your credit score and other data about you. If you finance future purchases with Affirm, you may be eligible for a lower APR depending on your financial situation at the time of purchase.
This APR calculator will give you an idea of how much interest you actually pay: https://www.affirm.com/apr-calculator/
When you consider Affirm financing, carefully evaluate the loan terms that Affirm offers you and determine whether the monthly payments fit your budget.  
How is interest on an Affirm loan calculated?
Affirm calculates the annual percentage rate (APR) of a loan using simple interest, which equals the rate multiplied by the loan amount and by the number of months the loan is outstanding. 
This model differs from compound interest, in which the interest expense is calculated on the loan amount and the accumulated interest on the loan from previous periods. Think about compound interest as “interest on interest,” which can increase the loan amount. Credit cards, for example, use compound interest to calculate the interest expense on outstanding credit card debt.   
How do I make my payments?
Before each payment is due, Affirm sends you an email or SMS reminder with the installment amount that is coming due and the due date. You have the option to sign up for autopay, so you don’t risk missing a payment.
Follow these steps to make a payment:
  1. Go to www.affirm.com/account.
  2. Enter your mobile phone number. Affirm sends a personalized security PIN to your phone.
  3. Enter this security PIN into the form on the next page and click Sign in.
  4. After you sign in, a list of your loans appears, with payments that are coming due. Click the loan payment you would like to make.
  5. Make a payment using a debit card or ACH bank transfer.
If I return an item, how do refunds work?
A refund posts to your Affirm account if we process your refund request. If you have already made loan payments or a down payment, Affirm issues a refund credit to the bank account or debit card that you used to make the payments. 
How long does it take to get my money back in the event of a return?
A refund credit appears in your account within three to ten business days, depending on your bank’s processing time.
Can I amend my order after my purchase has been processed? Can I be approved for a higher loan amount if my purchase amount increases?
You cannot edit your order after you have confirmed your loan. If you want to add items to your purchase, apply for another loan with Affirm or use a different payment method.
Am I able to obtain a refund after my purchase?
Refunds can be processed up to 365 days from the date your order is placed.
