Bosch has added 59 new part numbers to its OE specialty wiper blade and engine management sensor categories, expanding Bosch coverage by more than 43.8 million domestic, European and Asian new vehicles.

In the wiper category, a total of eight new OE specialty wiper blade part numbers have been added, covering 19.7 million new vehicles in operation (VIO). These new blades fit OE specialty top lock and side lock arms on domestic, European and Asian applications. Bosch Evolution wiper blades add six new SKUs, increasing its comprehensive coverage to 98 percent. Bosch ICON – which offers 40 percent longer life than other premium blades on the market – now includes two new SKUs providing additional BMW and General Motors coverage. Both product lines feature patented beam technology specially designed to fit the curvature of the windshield, according to Bosch. 

Additionally, Bosch Gasoline Systems has released 10 new Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensors, including next-generation HFM7 (Hot Film Air Mass Meter) sensors. These sensors cover 310,000 import vehicles, including BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen and Porsche.

Bosch also has introduced 41 new engine management sensor part numbers, including wheel, pressure, temperature, cam, crank and knock sensors. The new numbers cover European and domestic vehicles including model years up to 2013, and extend Bosch coverage by 23.8 million new vehicles.

“All these sensors for the aftermarket are exactly the same as those that we provide to our OEM customers,” said Timo Reif, vice president of automotive product marketing for Robert Bosch North America.

Bosch designs to strict engineering standards and says it is committed to bringing the highest-quality OE products to the aftermarket. Monthly new product communication is just one of the ways by which Bosch keeps customers informed of its latest new product offerings and line additions so that they can, in turn, offer the most up-to-date parts available to their customers.

Valve Lifter Technology

Hydraulic lifters are precision-fit assemblies.

The basic function of a valve lifter is pretty simple. It sits on the camshaft and transfers the motions of the cam lobe up through the pushrods and rockers to open and close the valves. The size and shape of the cam lobe under the lifter (multiplied by the ratio of the rocker arms) determines valve lift and duration. As such, the lifter just follows the motions of the cam. But it does play a role in valvetrain lash (clearance) and noise.
