Volvo 240 & 260 parts catalog

Volvotips got permission of Volvo Cars Heritage to publish the Volvo 240 and 260 service manuals and Volvo 240 & 260 parts catalogs. These service manuals and parts catalogs can be viewed at Volvotips and will open in your webbrowser (in a new window/tab) so you can watch them instantly. To view the Volvo parts catalog or Volvo greenbooks just click on the links below.

The Volvo 240 & 260 parts catalog is written in English, Swedish, French, Italian, Spanish and German. The parts manual covers the following models:

  • Volvo 242 (2-door Volvo 240-series with 4-cylinder redblock)
  • Volvo 244 (4-door sedan / saloon with 4-cylinder redblock or 6-cylinder diesel engine)
  • Volvo 245 (5-door estate / stationwagon with 4-cylinder redblock or 6-cylinder diesel engine)
  • Volvo 262 (2-door coupé with B27 PRV-engine)
  • Volvo 264 (4-door sedan / saloon with B27 PRV-engine)
  • Volvo 265 (5-door estate / stationwagon with B27 PRV-engine)

Using the parts catalog isn’t hard: just look for the subject (like the engine, bodywork or cooling system) and search the sketch where the part is what you’re looking for. The number of the part is included and can be found at the page next to the drawing and tells you the part number (and in some cases: the new part number, or the quantity of that part needed, or some specific details). Now you know the part number and you can search the web to order it online or buy it at a shop.

Unfortunately at this moment only 2 of the 4 parts catalogs are online, but it covers almost all models. If you have a late type Volvo 240 you can still use the parts catalog of 1985-1987 but only the engine and some small details (like the windscreen rubber or tailgate door) will be different. The first and last parts catalogs will be uploaded later.

    What an excellent resource – thank you! 🙂

    I own a few 240s… Including one in each of the two missing catalog ranges (’74-78 and ’88-93). Do you have a time-frame when those parts catalogs will also be available?

      I’m working on it, but can’t tell right now when they will be available. The paper versions I have are incomplete, so it’s pretty needless to scan them and put those incomplete versions online.

    I see section 8 is missing out of the year 78-84 parts catalogue, is this section available?
