Core Returns


  • If you have paid a core charge for an item purchased from Cardinal Parts, you are eligible for core credit upon return of the old core unit. Used cores must be returned within 30 days provided the replacement parts were purchased at Cardinal Parts. All cores must be shipped back in the box you received your new/reman product in.
