Postage and Packaging charges:
As we sell our parts worldwide we do not, unlike some eBay sellers, incorporate our postage and package charges into the item price and then claim ‘free shipping’. This would be unfair to our international buyers and also mean that we would have to compensate for the extra selling fees we would have to pay on the item by increasing the item price further. Unfortunately no shipping method is free but we do pass the business discounts we receive onto our buyers. We do in fact currently run our postage and packaging costs at a loss. Please bear this in mind when leaving us a DSR for P&P charges. If you feel you have been overcharged for P&P please contact us first and we will be happy to explain our charges.
We only accept payments via Paypal. Ebay members without a Paypal account can still use the Paypal checkout to make a credit card payment without signing up for an account.
We do not accept bank transfers or telephone credit card payments.
Buyers can cancel their order within 14 days of the delivery date. A return request has to be submitted by the buyer and accepted by us before returning an item. The item has to be returned within 7 days of the return request being accepted in its original packaging, unused and in the same condition it was received. It is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure the parts are returned via a secure method. Refunds will only be issued once the part has been returned and inspected. Original and return shipping costs will not be refunded. A restocking charge of 10-20% will also apply to items ordered incorrectly or items with free shipping at our discretion.
For parts that are faulty we will require the vehicles full chassis number and a diagnostic fault report before the part is accepted for return.
If you have a question on any of the items we have listed then use the 'ask seller a question' feature and we will do our best to quickly answer your query to the best of our knowledge. Please do not send multiple messages as this only causes confusion when we send a reply! All queries will be responded to via eBay messages Monday-Friday (excluding national holidays) during office hours.
We do not operate an incoming telephone line.
Please bear in mind the following information before submitting a query:
Please check the automated replies that we have laid out. We are repeatedly asked the sames questions and most of the answers you need will be found here!
Use the help pages we have created (on the left hand side of the shop homepage) to help you find the right part for your car.
We include as much information as we can in our listing descriptions so please read them clearly before asking a question.
We cannot check compatibility against specific registration numbers. Ideally this needs to be done by a main dealer but you could also look your own parts up on this online parts catalogue (information may not be 100% accurate):
We cannot answer queries relating to parts fitting models other than those they are listed for.
We cannot order parts that are not listed in our eBay shop.
Our items are already priced with big discounts over the RRP therefore we do not accept offers on our items.
Parts quoted as left side and right side are viewed from the rear of the car. So left is nearside and right is offside (UK).
Trim/paint codes and vehicle specific 'PR' (option) numbers can be found on the car's data sticker which will be on the inside cover of the original service book and also on the car body (normally in the spare wheel well).
We strongly advise that you have already checked which part number you need for your car before ordering an item. You could do this with a main dealer or by checking the part number on your old part. You can then search our shop listings to see if we have the part number you need. Remember that VWG uses a lot of the same parts across many makes and models. We cannot list all these variations in the listing title so using the part number search is the best way to see if we have the part you need!
The 'Application guide' is to be used as a guide only and whilst we try and include as much information as possible variations on part numbers can occur with different models/engines and vehicle chassis breaks etc. You must therefore ensure that you have checked that the part number listed is the correct one for your specific car before ordering.
*** We may be able to check compatibility on certain parts if you can supply us your full 17 digit chassis number without spaces ***
If you are happy with your purchase and the service we have given then we kindly ask you leave us positive feedback and 5 star detailed seller ratings upon delivery of your item. Should you feel the need to leave anything else please contact us first and give us the opportunity to put it right! We will reciprocate all positive feedback once we know you are happy with your purchase.
