Stricter rules introduced for Land Rover’s ‘old unit’ returns policy

We’ve had a letter from Land Rover explaining some changes to the old unit return policy; this policy covers old parts being returned for a surcharge refund.

Land Rover are imposing some rather strict rules for the returning parts, some of which may be difficult to meet if you’re not doing the work on the vehicle yourself.

Here is the updated list of requirements:

  • All return units must be returned in the original packaging.
  • All original packaging must be clean and untorn with none of the labels defaced.
  • All return items must be drained and thoroughly cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaner (no sand or bead blasting).
  • Items with fire damage will not be accepted.
  • Items with cracks and holes to the casing will not be accepted.
  • Radio / CD / Satnav head units must not have cracked screens or missing buttons.
  • Any damage to nozzles or electrical connectors will not be accepted.
  • Any blanking plugs or protective covers must be transferred to the old unit.

These new rules are now in force at Land Rover – if the returning item does not meet the criteria, they will not issue a refund.

We would recommend that you make sure your mechanic or workshop is aware of the new rules before starting work to remove the old unit – this may help to reduce the risk of damage to the old unit or packaging as it’s removed.

BRITCAR proudly sponsors H4HRR


Britcar-sponsored racing team H4HRR have secured an impressive 174 point lead in their championship after two very successful race weekends.

Cadwell park in June saw 3x 2nd place finishes and a 3rd place – a fantastic achievement given the monsoon-like conditions (picture above). Mark suffered an unfortunate side effect of the weather and ended up “testing” the tyre wall at over 30mph! Thankfully both bike and rider were patched up and competed in the next race.

July’s meet was an unplanned extra weekend at Pembrey in South Wales. This meet is normally dominated by local racers, and many of H4HRR’s championship rivals decided to sit it out. Mark and the H4HRR team were determined to get a result, and managed 3x 2nd place and a 3rd place finish! This is a huge result, especially since this was Mark’s first session on this track.

Britcar are thrilled to be supporting such a dedicated team, particularly when they champion such a good cause.

Britcar (Global) Ltd is proud to announce our sponsorship of H4HRR – a motorbike racing team fundraising for Help for Heroes.

H4HRR was setup to help raise the profile of the Help for Heroes charity by creating and publicising a motorcycle road racing team brand, and promoting this on the bikes, on supporting literature, and with prominent performances on track.

The team principal, Mark Maskell, is an injured ex-serviceman who received post-traumatic support from Help for Heroes and who is now determined to try and make a contribution himself to what he knows from experience is a very worthwhile cause.

The team has not asked for any financial support from Help for Heroes, and relies on sponsorship, donations, and merchandise sales to offset the costs of running a road racing team. Talking about

H4HRR will have a presence at all ten race meetings in the 2015 season, as well as trackdays and other meetings as funds and commitments permit.
