Robert Bosch LLC has added 25 part numbers to its brake pad, rotating machine and oxygen sensor product lines.

Brake pads

Three SKUs have been added to the Bosch QuietCast brake pad product line, extending coverage for late-model Asian and domestic vehicles. The new Bosch QuietCast Brake Pad set SKUs includes a hardware kit. All Bosch premium QuietCast Disc Brake Pads feature friction formulas specific to the application – semi-metallic, NAO or copper-free ceramic – and include synthetic lubricant for all applications.

The new Bosch QuietCast brake pad SKUs extend coverage to over 1.7 million vehicles in operation, including the 2013-2016 Ford Fusion, 2015-2017 Lincoln MKC, 1999-2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty and more.

Six SKUs have been added to the Bosch Blue brake pad product line, featuring OE-style, multi-layer shims that provide superior noise dampening characteristics. The company says they’re ideal for the shop owner who is looking to provide customers with the best value. Bosch Blue Brake Pads come towel-wrapped on select applications.

The new Bosch Blue brake pad SKUs extend coverage to over 1.4 million late-model Asian and domestic vehicles in operation, including the 2014-2016 Acura MDX, 2016 Honda Pilot, 2014-2016 Nissan Rogue and more.

Rotating machines

Bosch has added nine SKUs for remanufactured alternators and starters, covering late-model domestic, Asian, and European vehicles that are coming out of their warranty periods and are prime candidates for service in the aftermarket. The new SKUs extend coverage to 840,000 vehicles in operation in the U.S.  

Five new SKUs for remanufactured alternators are now available for models including the 2009-2015 Mercedes-Benz G550 V8 Cyl. 5.5L, 2011-2013 BMW 550i V8 Cyl. 4.4L, 2009 Audi A4 Quattro V6 Cyl. 3.2L and more.
