1. How do I know a quality supplier?
An incredibly large number of companies sell automotive spare parts. It's impossible to quickly distinguish between a quality offering and a poor quality one. Yet there are several indicators that can help you. We will try to describe some of them briefly:
A company with a history, a strong brand and positive references is clearly the preferred choice.
The manufacturer usually offers a better service and a higher level of knowledge compared to wholesalers.
A company with a clearly defined product range can usually control the quality and breadth of its range better.
Nothing is predetermined and everything changes over time. In any case, at TESLA we try to make sure that you are always as satisfied with us as possible. And yes.... We are a manufacturer with a long history, a well-known name and a specialised range designed for auto electrics.
2. What to do if you can't find the part you are looking for?
At TESLA, we are constantly working to expand our product range. At the moment we offer 3,000 items and this number is still growing. We continuously feed all data into the most widely used spare parts database, TECDOC. Of course, we are aware that this database is aimed more at professional users. For smaller companies or individual car owners we offer a constantly updated parts search engine on our website. For customers who like to search in classic catalogues and make handwritten notes, we still offer paper catalogues. And if you don't succeed there either, just drop us a line. Send a sample, a drawing, a photo and as much information about the car as possible and our colleagues will find a solution for you.
3. Why do we offer different types of ignition cables?
TESLA offers over 10 different types of ignition cables. The cables differ mainly in the construction of the core and the diameter of the cable itself. The core type is important for proper suppression and for the transmission of the high-voltage spark. The resistance value, the correct length of the cables and its sufficient diameter all affect the driveability of your vehicle and allow the engine to run smoothly. For some car models, we offer you a choice between several cable types. If we do, we know we can afford to do so. We can even offer you different colors. But we don't compromise on one thing. The materials used are always of the highest quality. We gladly leave this and other similar compromises to our competitors. We are convinced that this is not the way to go.
4. TESLA offers almost 200 different types of coil-on-plug boots. Other companies do not have this range. Why are these products interesting for the customer?
Ignition coils play a vital role in the ignition system. Without a high-voltage spark, your car won't even start. Replacing the entire ignition coil often seems to be the only solution. But if the headlight doesn't light, you're also not replacing the whole part, just the bulb inside. And it's the same with coils. The ignition coil is made up of many parts. One of the visible parts is the coil-on-plug boot, made of heat resistant material. If these boots are damaged, either mechanically or by the ravages of time, the transmission of the high-voltage spark may not be ideal. Simply replace the boot and you and your car will know immediately that the problem has been corrected. And everything was quick and for considerably less money than you would have to pay for a complete coil replacement. It's a small thing, but it saves you money and brings us happy customers.
5. TESLA recommends the use of a special lubricant when installing all ignition parts. What are the advantages of this lubricant?
We recommend applying a non-conductive silicone lubricant to the inside of the silicone boots on the ignition cable or ignition coil. This silicone lubricant helps protect the joint from moisture and leaks and prevents the boot from sticking to the ceramic part of the spark plug.
TESLA offers several types of this lubricant. For coil-on-plug boots and ignition coils, this lubricant is included in the package in a small 1g bag of lubricant. For ignition cables, this lubricant can be ordered according to customer requirements. We also offer a 10g tube of lubricant for repeated assembly and replacement of ignition parts.
Quality assembly requires quality parts and experienced specialists. At TESLA, we strive to make sure you truly have everything your car deserves.
6. How can I find the right type of automotive fuses?
TESLA offers the widest range of automotive fuses on the market. There are actually a lot of fuses, so we understand very well situations where the customer doesn't know which type they actually need. Quality manufacturers also think about these cases. Each fuse should be marked - the fuse has a specific colour of plastic cover and the current value is usually written or stamped on it. In addition, you will find a colour photo and a drawing with dimensions for each fuse on our search engine. In addition to selecting the right types, do not underestimate the choice of supplier. The fuse is a small but very important component. It does not cost more than a few cents, but its improper function can cause considerable damage.
7. There are a number of brands of automotive bulbs in the world that are very similar to the TESLA brand. Why is this so?
The TESLA brand has been synonymous with quality automotive bulbs for decades. It is a brand that is well-known worldwide and very popular among customers. TESLA BLATNÁ is the only authorized user of the TESLA trademark for this product range. We can also replace one or two letters in the name. It is very easy. However, we think that our customers will appreciate it much more if they also find a quality product under a quality and well-known brand name. No fooling around and no compromises. We are pleased that the number of our satisfied customers is steadily growing, all over the world.
