Bosch says reman alternator additions cover 2.4 million vehicles in the U.S. and Canada.

Robert Bosch LLC has added 44 part numbers to Bosch QuietCast and Bosch Blue Brake pads, Professional Preferred Remanufactured Alternators and Bosch Oxygen Sensors product lines.

The company says the majority of these additions are late model applications and can be found in the most recent Bosch ACES/PIES catalog. Here’s a summary of the additions:

QuietCast and Bosch Blue Brake Pads

Bosch has added nine new part numbers to its QuietCast and Bosch Blue lines of disc brake pads. They cover 0.9 million UIO (units in operation). The new parts expand domestic coverage and include heavy duty on select Bosch QuietCast and Bosch Blue disc brake pad applications.

While all new QuietCast SKUs come with hardware kits, the Bosch Blue sets are offered both with and without hardware kits. For example, the Bosch Blue Disc Brake Pad set with and without hardware is available for 2013-2014 Ford Escape 4WD. The Bosch QuietCast kit for the same vehicle is only available with hardware. 

Reman Alternators

Seven SKUs are being introduced in the rotating electric product category for Professional Preferred Remanufactured Alternators. They cover 2.4 million new vehicles in the U.S. and Canada including 2009-2013 Acura TSX, 2008-2009 Cadillac CTS, 2008-2010 Honda Odyssey, 2010-2011 Toyota Camry, 2005-2013 VW Jetta and more.

The company says Bosch reman alternators are built to withstand extreme heat, cold and high demand. Parts are 100% factory-tested before and during the remanufacturing process to assure that they meet or exceed OE specifications. The voltage regulators and rectifier are also 100% tested and replaced where required. 

Oxygen Sensors

Twenty-eight OE-fit oxygen sensor part numbers covering  3.9 million domestic, Asian and European vehicles in operation have been added. The additions include 10 wideband/AF sensors for late-model Lexus, Subaru, Toyota, Mazda, Suzuki, Land Rover and Audi models, as well as oxygen sensors for Hyundai, Suzuki, Mazda, Chevrolet, Audi and more.

“As OEM warranties expire on vehicles and they come into the aftermarket for service, we will continue to provide new, high quality parts, many of them replacements for Bosch OE parts, that will be needed to repair them,” says Timo Reif, vice president, product marketing, automotive aftermarket North America.
