How can I send a part to you?

Where can I find the label for the pick-up service?

To which address do I have to send my part?

Unit 3
Brunel Court, Brunel Way
Severalls Business Park
United Kingdom

What are the shipping costs?

The shipping costs for the United Kingdom are £15 (or £25 if we collect and deliver), excluding the TCUs. If several parts are sent at the same time, the price may differ depending on the weight.

What is the best way to package the part?

Transport damage is very annoying, it delays the remanufacturing process and may incur additional costs. Therefore, make sure that the box in which the part is being sent is large enough. The part must not touch the side walls of the box to prevent damage during transport. It is important that the empty spaces in the box are properly filled with bubble wrap, air cushions or other filling material. This prevents the part in the box from shifting or tilting during transport. Don't forget to include the required parts and remanufacturing order form with the package!

I see that I have to send my DSG in a special crate. How does this work?

The DSG gearboxes are sensitive parts that are easily damaged during transport. That is why ACtronics has developed special DSG transport crates. Do you have a defective DSG gearbox that you want ACtronics to overhaul? Then contact our Customer Service Team on 01206 849920 or via They will provide you with a transport crate so that the part comes to us safely and without damage and is ultimately returned to you.

Then contact our customer service team.

Does ACtronics also do business with private individuals?

ACtronics is a Business-to-Business (B2B) company and therefore works exclusively for car workshops and dealers.

Where can I find my OE number?

Every component has an OE number. You can find this number of the white label on your product, or in some cases, it has been lasered into the product. The OE number is not always readable from the outside of the car. In many cases, the component must be removed from the car to be able to read the OE number. An example of an OE number can be found in the image below.

I cannot find my component on the website. What do I need to do?

What is the delivery time / lead time of a revision?

For a part that is not defective, only the testing costs will be charged.

What happens to my component when it is in the remanufacturing process?

After the part has arrived at our logistics department, the component is subjected to an Entry Test. Here the component is extensively tested to identify the problem. The component then goes through a tailored revision process and will be revised. At then finally, during the End-of-Line test, we test the component again to check it's working correctly. If this is the case, our logistic department will send the component back.
