How important is correct headlight adjustment?

Incorrectly set headlights are not only a danger to the driver, but for all other road users as well. Not only do they fail to provide sufficient illumination, they can also dazzle the drivers of oncoming vehicles. So it is important to have your lights checked at regular intervals to ensure safe driving at all times. Bosch Car Service workshops can also perform halogen headlamp adjustment for you. Remember: With halogen headlamp systems the range should always be adjusted if the luggage compartment is heavily laden. Litronic/xenon headlamp systems do this for you automatically.

Why it is advisable to drive with the lights on even during the day.

Cars traveling with dipped headlights are always easier to see – in fog, snow or rain. Driving with "normal" dipped beam does however also result in greater wear and tear on the bulbs. This is the reason why Bosch developed powerful globes that you can find stocked at your local Bosch Car Service workshop if the need arises for replacement.

Why is wiper quality so important?

Good visibility largely depends on the quality of the wipers. After all, wipers have to complete more than 750,000 wipe cycles, corresponding to an area equivalent to about 80 football pitches. And as if that were not enough, they also have to withstand the toughest conditions:

  • Temperature fluctuations with exposure to direct sunlight
  • Dirt, insects, ice, etc. on the windshield
  • Chemical influences

When should wipers be changed?

Even the best eyes have trouble seeing when wiper blades become worn. Even so, most drivers do not change their wipers until the chatter accompanying every change of direction becomes a nuisance. By which time it is really already too late.

But incorrect fitting of wiper arms can also cause severe streaking and smearing, so it is best to let us do it. We will set the wipers properly or, if necessary, fit your vehicle with new quality products from Bosch – to ensure optimum wiping action even in the most adverse weather conditions.

What are the advantages of using a glass cleaner?

Dirt, dust and insects all produce a film on the windshield which can rarely be removed just with water and thus represents a potential hazard. The answer is a special glass cleaner which also stops ice forming on the windshield in winter. This is available ready-mixed or in concentrated form from retailers. Important: The correct mixing ratio is essential to achieve the desired effect.
