Over the past years, experienced Bosch Car Service workshops and Bosch Classic, the company’s specialist unit for classic cars, have built up a network for the service and repair of old and new classic cars. Today, more than 90 workshops in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and France bear the “Classic Service” emblem, which shows that they have the specialist expertise, tools, and appliances needed to service historic vehicles. To earn this emblem, they have to satisfy a long list of requirements. In this context, experienced mechanics are especially important. Classic cars are regularly serviced and repaired in the Bosch Classic Service workshops. In addition, the specially trained Classic Service mechanics have outstanding manual skills that are rarely found in a modern vehicle workshop. With their knowledge of historic vehicle components, the Bosch Classic Service workshops offer services above all in the areas of automotive electrics, engine management, injection systems, brakes, magneto ignition, carburetor repair, and vehicle restoration. In this way, they help ensure that the new and old classic cars remain roadworthy.
REMAN service provides reconditioned original parts
When repairing vehicles that are more than 30 years old, finding spare parts can be a challenge. In some cases, faulty or worn parts for new and old classic cars can be reconditioned by Bosch Classic’s 1:1 REMAN service. This work is done in Bosch plants, mainly using historic tools and original testing technology. At present, this means that mechanical gasoline-injection systems, fuel distributors, air-flow sensors, warm-up valves, pressure sensors, intake-manifold air-pressure sensors, electric fuel pumps, and side-channel pumps can be overhauled and repaired. This is handled by the Bosch Classic Service workshops, but other workshops can also access Bosch Classic’s 1:1 REMAN service for their customers. Many other remanufactured components are also available as spare parts via Bosch eXchange, such as starters, generators, brake calipers, and steering systems.
For the owners of new and old classic cars who want to find out more about how their vehicles work and about historic Bosch components, Bosch Classic is again offering technical training courses in various Bosch Classic Service workshops in 2023. At these one-day events, experienced mechanics share their practical knowledge of repairing Bosch systems that are more than 20 years old.
