Maintenance and Service

Maintenance and Cleaning
If the pneumatic tool should fail despite the care taken in man-
ufacture and testing, repair should be carried out by an au-
thorised customer services agent for Bosch power tools.
In all correspondence and spare parts orders, please always
include the 10-digit article number given on the type plate of
the pneumatic tool.
Have maintenance and repair work carried out only
through qualified persons. This will ensure that the safe-
ty of the pneumatic tool is maintained.
An authorized Bosch after-sales service agent will carry out
this work quickly and reliably.
Regular Cleaning
– Clean the sieve at the air intake of the pneumatic tool regu-
larly. For this, unscrew the hose fitting 5 and remove any
dust and debris from the sieve. Afterwards, retighten the
hose fitting again.
Note: To avoid damage to interior valve components of the
pneumatic tool when screwing hose fitting 5 in or out, it is rec-
ommended to counter-hold the projecting connection socket
of air intake 20 with an open-end wrench (size 22 mm).
– Water and debris particles in the compressed air cause
rust and lead to wear of plates, valves etc. To prevent this,
fill several drops of engine oil into the air intake 20. Recon-
nect the pneumatic tool to the air supply (see "Connecting
the Air Supply", page 25) and run it for 5–10 seconds,
while catching/picking up the escaping oil with a cloth. Al-
ways carry out this procedure when not using the pneu-
matic tool for a longer period of time.

Scheduled Maintenance
– Clean the gearbox after the first 150 running hours using a
mild solvent. Follow the solvent manufacturers directions
for use and disposal. Lubricate the gearbox using Bosch
gearbox lube. Repeat the lubrication procedure every
300 hours after the initial gearbox service.
Special gearbox grease (225 ml)
Article number 3 605 430 009
– The motor plates should be checked regularly by special-
ised personnel and replaced, if required.
Lubrication of Pneumatic Tools that do not belong to the
CLEAN Product Line
For all Bosch pneumatic tools that do not belong to the CLEAN
product line (these have a special type of compressed-air mo-
tor that functions with oil-free compressed air), oil mist
should be added continuously to the flowing-through com-
pressed air. The compressed-air oiler required for this is in-
cluded in the compressed-air service unit on the line side of
the pneumatic tool (for more details, please refer to the com-
pressor manufacturer).
For direct lubrication of the pneumatic tool or admixtures to
the service unit, use SAE 10 or SAE 20 engine oil.
All compressed-air drills can be equipped with key-type drill
chucks or keyless chucks.
Information about the complete quality accessory program
can be found on the Internet at and or at your dealer.
