Explanation:
Not exactly a >>>car<<< component but automotive in the sense that it attaches to heavy-duty utility vehicles (Nutzfahrzeuge). Are you sure this is simply a list of >>car<< components???

gouge bit


Explanation:
Eurodicautom also gives "gouge bit" as an option for "Erdbohrer". A "gouge bit" is a boring bit (for a drill), shaped like a gouge, and although once again this doesn't seem relevant to a list of car components, it is possible that such a tool could have been used in the manufacturing of several components.

Hope this helps
