Karlsruhe, Germany – Bosch Classic’s core task is to keep new and old classic cars roadworthy and in working order. For many years now, this Bosch unit for classic cars has devoted itself to preserving historic vehicles. From April 25 to 28, 2024, Bosch Classic will again be presenting its extensive range of spare parts and technical services in Hall 3 of the Retro Classics in Stuttgart. In addition, associates from Bosch “Classic Service” workshops, which specialize in the maintenance and repair of historic vehicles, will be on hand for expert advice. The Bosch “Classic Services” network now counts more than 90 workshops with the specialist expertise, tools, and appliances for the maintenance, repair, and restoration of new and old classic cars. In addition, Bosch Classic will be offering short live training sessions on D-Jetronic at its booth at this year’s Retro Classics.

Various sources of spare parts for new and old classic cars

Many classic cars are well over 30 years old. For their owners, overhauling and replacing faulty and worn parts is a considerable challenge. Bosch Classic can help them with repair services and an extensive range of spare parts. There are various ways of solving owners’ problems. Bosch Classic’s 1:1 REMAN reconditioning service, for example, overhauls and repairs components from historic vehicles, using mainly original tools and testing equipment. Remanufactured spare parts for many older components, such as starters, generators, and steering systems, are also available via the Bosch eXchange program. Bosch also offers an exchange and repair service for electronic components. The Bosch Electronic Service uses exclusively original parts or comparable approved parts for its repairs to electronic systems such as instrument clusters, control units, radios, and navigation systems.

If the original tools or manufacturing instructions are still available, and if it makes economic sense to manufacture the product, parts can also be manufactured anew. One recent example is the wheel-speed sensors that are especially crucial for the function of the Bosch ABS system, developed in 1978. With these sensors no longer available for many vehicles built between 1992 and 1997, and with practically no more sensors as spare parts for the first ABS generations, Bosch Classic decided to manufacture them anew. Many of the sensors will be available to order again by the end of the year. Bosch Classic has also relaunched many spare parts with modern technical components – such as the DC alternator governor with classic design on the outside and modern technology inside. Bosch Classic will be presenting an overview of these parts at its booth in Hall 3.

The vehicle and product search function on the website allows the owners of historic vehicles to refine their search for information about individual spare parts in the Bosch Classic archive. Using the article number, type designation, trade name, or Bosch product name, they can look for and find detailed product information such as technical characteristics, images, and lists of spare parts.

Extensive services for the owners of historic vehicles

The Bosch “Classic Services” workshops specialize in the maintenance and repair of historic vehicles, and offer an extensive range of services from a single source. Faulty or worn parts are professionally repaired on the spot, via 1:1 REMAN, or via the Bosch Electronic Service. Alternatively, they can be ordered from Bosch Classic’s parts range or from Bosch eXchange, and expertly installed. At the end of the process, owners can be sure that their historic vehicles are roadworthy once more.

Short training sessions at the booth at the Retro Classics

As a special highlight at the Stuttgart Retro Classics, short training sessions on D-Jetronic will be offered at the Bosch Classic booth in Hall 3. A schedule of the sessions can be found on the website.
