From what I have read on the forum so far about warranty coverage after mods, it depends on the dealership. I know that there are folks having warranty repairs done on cars that have been modified. Can you try another dealer over there?

What I have consistently read is that if the mod did not cause the failure then it would be covered. :shrug03:

Over here in the US, it all depends on the dealer you are working with. I have a few good local ones over here that I do tuning for and have no problem warrantying certain things. Large dealers that make Ford a lot of money have a lot more leway on warranty repairs.

In the US, they can't say that. They must prove that the modification you made caused the failure. Or...some would say that you must prove the modification did NOT cause the failure. In other words, let's say you install new struts, and the wiper motor fails. It would be pretty easy to convince a reasonable person that the struts did not cause the wipers to fail.

As you are in another country, I have no idea how they do things.

Good luck...I'd go to Ford.com if you want a contact.

Ford RAcing has a lowering/handling package and the dealer can put it on and it will not affect the warranty then because it is a dealer install
