This period starts from the date of the buyer's request for intervention or from the date the goods are made available for repair, if this availability is subsequent to the request for intervention.

- Article 1641 of the Civil Code: The seller is bound by the guarantee on account of the hidden defects of the item sold which render it unfit for the use for which it is intended, or which so diminish this use that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would only have paid a lower price for it, if he had known about them.
