Per GM Service Policies and Procedures, Article 3.1.1, Service Agents are to purchase, at a minimum, all essential special service tools required to service all models currently covered by the GM New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Certain special service tool kits contain consumable repair parts that are intended to be permanently installed on vehicles.

In the event that one or more of these consumable repair parts are utilized during a vehicle repair, the following table will guide you on the amount to submit as part of the repair transaction. These consumable parts fall outside of the definition of shop supplies and are to be submitted as a Net Miscellaneous item on the repair transaction.


Note: Only parts listed below that were purchased inside the Bosch Automotive Service Solutions distribution network may be charged as explained in this bulletin.


Transaction Requirements

Job Card – Document the quantity and the Bosch Automotive Service Solutions part number(s) (Special Tool number) used for the each repair line on the job card.

Net/Miscellaneous – Using the chart below, calculate the total cost of consumed part(s) used for the repair. Submit the total cost plus normal mark-up percentage allowance in the Net/Miscellaneous field. When entering an amount in Net/Miscellaneous, an additional free-flow text field will appear requiring you to submit information to describe the expense. List the tool number used. If more than one part of a consumable tool was used for a single repair, list the tool number related to the largest expense charged.
