Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
It does not matter whether it is a manufacturing defect or not. It is the seller that is liable under the Sale of Goods Act.

However, the liability under the Supply of Goods to Consumers Regulations put a time limit on manufacturing defects of six years so after seven years, you are unfortunately out of time to bring a claim under those regulations
