BROADVIEW, Ill. Bosch has just released a new, free app that enables anyone with an iPhone or iPad to find the correct Bosch part number for spark plugs, wiper blades, oxygen sensors, fuel pumps or battery chargers, as well as accessories for virtually any vehicle operating in the U.S. and Canada.
“Easy to install and use, the Bosch Part Finder can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store and works on any Apple iPhone or iPad. It offers both browse and search functions so users can find part information by entering vehicle year, make and model, or simply by entering the Bosch part number if they already know it,” said Otto Stefaner, project manager for Bosch.
The browse results may return one or more part numbers per product line. In the case of spark plugs and wiper blades, if multiple part numbers are returned, they will be listed beginning with the top-of-the-line product.
Selecting a part number from the browse results brings the user to a product information page that includes an image and features. For most parts, technical attributes are also listed. For more information, a link to the boschautoparts.com website is offered, along with a usage option that displays all vehicle applications using that part.
The search option allows the user to enter a known Bosch part number from any of the specified product lines and be taken directly to the product information page for that part.
According to Bosch, the new app complements the comprehensive vehicle part finder function on the www.BoschAutoParts.com website, which lists part numbers for products available on the Bosch Part Finder app plus additional Bosch product categories, making it easy to find the right Bosch part for virtually any vehicle sold in North America. Additional product lines will be added to the App in the future, Bosch says.
