Amazon service manual

At this page you can find the official Volvo Greenbooks for the Amazon P120, 130 and 220. 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 B16, B18 and B20-engines and both early and late type Amazons. The service manuals are written in English.

Volvotips got permission of Volvo Cars Heritage to publish the Volvo Amazon service manuals and Volvo Amazon parts catalog. 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. To view the Volvo parts catalog or Volvo greenbooks you’ll need Flash 8 (or higher). If you don’t have Flash or your version is too old you can download it at the Adobe website.

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. It is very easy to navigate: to switch pages use the forward- and back arrows and to zoom in or out use the + and – buttons at the top of the e-book. Click on the page and hold the mousebutton to drag the page to the direction you want.

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