Bosch Wiper Blades

Bosch Windscreen Wipers are engineered for extreme all-weather performance, allowing drivers full visibility no matter the weather conditions.

They’re also manufactured to Original Equipment (EO) specifications, which means they’re the same quality as the equipment used by your vehicle’s manufacturer.

At Halfords, we stock a wide range of standard and flat, front and rear, Bosch wiper blades. These include the award-winning Bosch Aerotwin blades, which last longer than standard blades, provide a smoother and quieter wiping action, and include the patented Power Protection Plus coating (which optimises wiper performance).

The type of wiper blade that you need is dependent on your vehicle’s make and model. To find the right wiper blade, simply use our online registration number checker and we’ll show you the different options for your vehicle.

Some of our most popular Bosch blades are shown below.

Bosch Windscreen Wipers

Standard

The Bosch SP26 Wiper Blade – Single offers superb wiper performance to ensure clear visibility in all weather conditions. The blade is manufactured to EO specifications and can be installed quickly and easily.

The same is true of the Bosch SP22/16S Wiper Blades – Front Pair. Both blades have an extended service life thanks to their superior quality and are ready to fit straight out of the box.

Bosch Windscreen Wipers

Retrofit Upgrade

Retrofit blades allow you to fit flat blades on a vehicle that normally takes standard blades. The Bosch Aerotwin Retrofit Single AR26U is a maximum-performance flat wiper blade that helps to provide perfect visibility and wiping performance, even at high speeds.

The blade is easy to install thanks to its pre-assembled adaptor and comes with the patented Power Protection Plus coating.

Bosch Windscreen Wipers

Flat

The Bosch AP26U Wiper Blade – Single is part of the Aerotwin range, which provide a clearer, smoother and quieter wiping performance. The unique wiper rubber developed by Bosch includes the company’s patented Power Protection Plus coating, while the uniform contact pressure leads to longer service life.

Features of this blade and others such as the Bosch AM980S Wiper Blades – Front Pair include an aerodynamic spoiler and technologically tensioned metal strips that help to keep the blade closer to the windscreen, aiding visibility and reducing wind noise.

Bosch Chargers

Traditional battery chargers provide batteries with a steady current that doesn’t take into account a battery’s condition or age. They also only have one charging mode, which means you can run the risk of overcharging the battery and causing permanent damage.

The Bosch C7 Battery Charger and Bosch C3 Battery Charger are different. Using Smart Amps, these chargers can generate the optimum charge current for the condition of the battery and the current charging stage. They provide a fast, high-quality charge that helps to maximise the battery’s lifespan, and also offer four and six charging modes respectively.

The integrated trickle charge function means that batteries can be monitored and reliably kept at a high charge level when they’re not in use. The chargers can also be left connected to the battery and will switch automatically to the maintenance/trickle charging mode when the battery’s fully charged.


SmartAMPs Technology

Constant Current Mode (C7 only)
Delivers a constant current to the direct current-enabled clips at all times.

IP65
Dust proof and splash water proof

Bosch Spark Plugs

Spark plugs are among the most important components in cars with petrol engines, being responsible for getting them reliably started. 

They’re also crucial for optimum engine performance and reliable operation.

Bosch has been at the forefront of spark plug technology for over 100 years. 

While the company originally developed spark plugs to meet the needs of motor sport, that innovative technology was later incorporated into EO spark plugs for cars, motorcycles and more.

Bosch Spark Plugs

The FR78X Bosch Super 4 Spark Plug x4 is a great example of Bosch’s innovation. 

It operates on the state-of-the-art air-cushion-spark principle and is the world’s first spark plug to feature four thin ground electrodes with one pointed, silver-plated centre electrode. 

This provides a noticeable improvement in acceleration, improved engine smoothness and superior engine versatility

Bosch Spark Plugs

The FQR8LEU2 Bosch Spark Plug +57 x4 features a nickel-plated shell with rolled threads and provides both improved starting in cold weather and increased fuel ignitability.
