140 service manual

At this page you can find the official Volvo Greenbooks for the Volvo 142, 144 and 145. These greenbooks are also known as the official Volvo service manuals. Also included are the service bulletins and service hints by Volvo. The service manuals includes the B18 and B20-engines and both early and late type Volvo 140. The service manuals are written in English.

Volvotips got permission of Volvo Cars Heritage to publish the Volvo 140 and 164 service manuals and Volvo 140 & 164 parts catalogs. These service manuals and parts catalogs can be viewed at Volvotips but aren’t allowed to be downloaded. Instead of a downloadable PDF I created online html-version (sort of e-book) of all Volvo-manuals and catalogs which can be browsed through in your webbrowser. To view the Volvo 140 servicebooks and Volvo 140 greenbooks just click on the links below, all parts manuals are not in PDF format but in simple html so you can watch them instantly!

Using the Volvo service manual isn’t hard: just look for the subject described below (like the engine, bodywork or cooling system) and click on the link to open the service manual for that subject. At the index you can find at which page the information can be found where you’re looking for and scroll down to get to the right page.

Please keep in mind the service manuals are pretty large in filesize, so it can take a while before it’s completely downloaded.

    Hi there,
    The section on 140 service … webpage references have become ‘corrupt’ (140 service page ‘links’ to jpg manuals of 850) and thus can be accessed anymore.
    Tried to attach a screenshot but that didn’t work as well.
    Couldn’t find any other way to notify you of such than via this comment…
    Grtz. Peter
