Where is Bosch Classic Infos? wurde erstellt von Volker
Hi,

Bosch Classic - other than Lucas, Siemens or VDO - has always been a very fine company when it was about providing us with informations on historical documents for our classic cars. I have praised Bosch several times for that. It took me much more time to document Lucas supplied D-Jetronic in Jaguar XJ12. And when I tried to compile Thermo time switch data made by VDO, I failed. Robert Bosch GmbH distinguished itself in a very pleasant way from the rest.. We had:

  • Equipment lists for all our cars even listing which components was used in which year
  • Product information listed by Bosch and OEM numbers
  • Cross usage lists to show where else that product was used
  • Spare parts lists
  • Specification lists for products. Here we could find important hints.
  • Fotos or schemes of products
  • Replacements, reproductions and availability
  • operation manuals of histroric instruments

That is how we classic car owners were able to help ourselves and find right spare parts from Bosch. I always appreciated and could help many forum members with such informations.

A few years ago we also had Bosch Service Manuals covering topics like:

  • D-Jetronic
  • Mechanical fuel injection pumps
  • Starters
  • Generators

3 months ago Bosch suddenly switched off Car and product information on Bosch Classic Knowledge. Since then we are continuously put off. It shall restart on Sep, 1, then Oct, 1 and now they write

We improve our service for you. Therefore vehicle search as well as product search are unavailable for a longer period of time. Thank you for your understanding.

When I had asked about status and restart mid September I did not receive any answer. So I feel like a Deja-Vu of the situation I faced with Bosch Service manuals. Also there Bosch announced years ago that they stopped selling the old ones in order to improve the quality. I even created an Eglisch M110 service manual on their request for them. Result is known. After 1 year of waiting we were told that there will be no replacement as no one needs such manuals. :Help: :Bang:

That is why I fear that the invaluable knowledge of Bosch Classic products will also not return to their Bosch Classic web site after we will wait and wait for it. That would be a catastrophy. Therefore please

Use Bosch Classic official email address and telephone and ask for these informations. Let Bosch not tell us in a few months that no one is interested and therefore there is no need of such informations. Please publish their answers here.

Viele Schraubergrüße - best regards, Dr-DJet Volker
