Full text
47. Notwithstanding the second paragraph of section 45, the replacement of a device or component and the replacement of a supplement is insured only if it has been used for the purposes for which it was designed and intended.
Notwithstanding the second paragraph of section 45, for a 2-year period from the event of damage or irreparable breakage, the replacement of a device, component or supplement is not insured if the only reason for the replacement is that the device, component or supplement was used negligently or was lost, stolen or destroyed.
That 2-year period shall cease to run when the minimum duration period of the device expires and shall not be extended beyond that expiry.
If, before the end of either of those periods, the insured person, at his own expense and in accordance with this Title, replaces a broken or damaged device, component or supplement with an insured device, component or supplement, fittings and repairs of the new device, component or supplement are insured, subject to the relevant provisions of this Title.
