Volvotips got permission of Volvo Cars Heritage to publish the Volvo P1800 service manuals and Volvo P1800 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.

The Volvo P1800 service & repair manual covers the following models:

  • Volvo P1800 Jensen
  • Volvo 1800S
  • Volvo 1800E
  • Volvo 1800ES

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.
