Volvo 240 & 260 service manual

Below you can find the service manual for the Volvo 240 and Volvo 260. These service manuals will help you to repair your 240 or 260, fix some small things, service the car and how to install accessories and upgrades.

These greenbooks are also known as the official Volvo service & repair manuals. Also included are the service bulletins and service hints by Volvo. The service manuals includes the B17, B19, B21, B23, B200, B230 (all those 4-cylinder engines are known as “redblocks”), B27 and B28-engines and also the D20 and D24 diesel engines. The service & repair manuals are written in English.

Volvotips got permission of Volvo Cars Heritage to publish the Volvo 240 and 260 service manuals and Volvo 240 and 260 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 Flash-version (sort of e-book) of all Volvo-manuals and catalogs which can be browsed through in your webbrowser.

    is this a joke?
    I want to see the electrical diagram and not download the ZIP opener or PDF writer.

    I appreciate that this is a free site and that you support it through advertising – but where is the actual download of the diagram?

      The links to the Flash-ebooks are working well, the diagrams aren’t allowed to be downloaded but if you click on the link of the diagram above the Flash-ebook will open in a new tab. When it’s fully loaded you can view the diagrams or the service manual you’re looking for. Be sure you’ve got Flash Player installed.
