Diagnostics opportunity

Diagnostics opportunity

Bosch’s globally proven, future-proof control unit diagnosis offers suitable solutions for maintenance, diagnosis and repair in any workshop – easily, quickly and efficiently. ESI[tronic], KTS and DCU accompany and support troubleshooting and repairs. Online maintenance and circuit diagrams, all important diagnostic functions, repair and troubleshooting instructions, manuals, vehicle data and experience-based repair cases (EBR) for over 150 brands provide comprehensive data for the workshop.

The braking system requires the same care as the engine and changing the brake fluid is as important as replacing the engine oil.

Bosch introduced the BFT100 brake fluid tester - easy and reliable diagnostic tool to measure the boiling point of the brake fluid in 30 seconds.

The Brake Fluids Tester (BFT 100) can be plugged directly into the vehicle battery: no need to charge it before use.
