    Why was I asked if I’ve registered before?

    We already have a user with the same email address as you. If you’ve registered in the past but cannot remember your username or password, don’t re-register. If you already have an Order History and have built Parts Lists, you’ll lose these.

    Instead, let us remind you of your username or password. Go to the 'My Account' tab, then within ‘My profile’ at the top left of the page and click on Forgotten your username/password?

    If you haven’t registered before, tick the box and continue.

    How do I register against my existing account number?

    Simply follow these steps:

    Step 1:

    Step 2:
    Within the ‘Registration’ section, click on the red 'Register' button.
