Default new s40 owner, a little put out w/volvo



My first post, just bought a 2002 s40, 28k miles. Did all my research, talked with previous owner got a great car at a great price. The problem is I went to the Volvo Dealership and made inquiries about repair manuals and schematics because I like doing my maintenance myself and they treated me like I was asking for thecodes to launch a nuclear strike. The attitude I got was people don't ask, they just pay. (Thankfully there are 2 great Volvo shops in my area not associated with Volvo.)</P>


Anyway, they told me that no service manuals are for sale for the newer cars, just info on-line that is charged to you by the chapter. Haynesdoes not have an S40repair manuals for anything newer than 1999.</P>


Can anyone tell me if they have had any luck findingmanuals for 2000 and up S40's? Thanks in advance.</P>

I just got a Volvo myself and my advice is to check ebay. I'm not sure how authentic they are but a quick search just now brought up a bunch of hits.

i had heard from a friend that volvo now uses tech info and repair info from a cd. i have seen this cd on ebay from a volvo repair technician. also, there is a volvo bookstore that should sell the manuals that you want, but they are expensive. haynes or chiltons should probably come out with a manual soon, but until then, either ebay or the volvo bookstore wis your best bet.
