RTI One-Year Limited Warranty
(Applies only to equipment owned and operated in North America)
During the One-Year Warranty period, MAHLE Aftermarket Inc., RTI Division (RTI) is solely responsible for costs
associated with parts and labor for repairs needed due to defects in material and/or workmanship. RTI is not responsible
for the costs associated with repairs needed due to improper use or a lack of normal maintenance. RTI’s goal is to
provide a timely turn-around of the covered product requiring warranty repair.
The Customer is responsible to ASSIST
phone diagnosis process of:
AND PARTICIPATE with RTI Technical Support in the over-the-
A) Determining that a legitimate failure has occurred and that the complaint is not just the
result of inadequate training and/or improper use that could be easily remedied by over-thephone instructions.
B) Determining the nature of the failure and that it is reasonable for RTI Technical Support to
judge over the phone that the failure is warrantable.
C) Determining the parts necessary to make the repairs so that those parts can be shipped via
the appropriate expedited method at the expense of RTI if the failure is warrantable.
During the One Year Warranty period for failures that are deemed by RTI to be warrantable, RTI is solely responsible
for providing Field Repair Service within a reasonable period of time after a warrantable failure is reported. Field Repair
Service is generally available in all areas within 150 miles of major metropolitan areas of the US. A reasonable period
of time will depend on the location of the customer and the time of the year. RTI maintains a large network of Service
Providers in the US. When Field Repair Service is needed, in most locations near a major US metropolitan area, and
during most times of the year, a reasonable period of time for Field Service is 24 to 48 hours after parts are received
by the Customer.
Since repair parts from RTI will normally arrive 24 to 48 hours after the Customer reports a failure, the Customer may
at his sole option and discretion, choose to make the necessary repairs, with over-the-phone support from RTI
Technical Support so as to minimize downtime. In such case, RTI will compensate the Customer or the Customer’s
employee as appropriate for the time necessary to make repairs if the failure is covered by warranty.
It is the Customer’s responsibility to maintain the RTI Equipment according to instructions in the RTI Operation Manual
for the covered product as well as to operate the equipment in a commercially reasonable manner as generally
described in the RTI Operation Manual. RTI provides free Technical Support over toll-free telephone lines in the US
to assist the customer in this regard for the life of the covered product.
The Customer should review the legal Warranty Disclaimer for more details of coverage and limitations.
Ancillary accessories such as Refrigerant Identifiers, Leak Detector Lights and Leak Detectors must
be returned to RTI for repair or replacement with a new or refurbished unit, at RTI’s sole discretion,
in case of a warrantable defect.
