I am looking for a hard-copy service or shop manual - one that clearly show how to remove the center radio/AC console, door panels, headliner, seats and other interior panels and coverings.<p>I'm thinking of installing soundproofing to reduce outside and road noise, and to resolve squeaks inside the vehicle.<p>Are after-market manuals, like Chilton's, still available? Should I stick with a Volvo-printed manual? What's the cost?<p>Thanks

Re: Hardcopy manual for 2007 S80? (SINCGARS)

I don't think they have anything like that anymore. I'm pretty sure the tech's pull all their information off of VADIS now, so there's no need for a service manual or such for them. And the S80 isn't the kind of car to have lots of self-servicing owners, so there probably isn't an aftermarket service manual available.

No hard copy manuals exist for any Volvo.<br>All information is carried on the VIDA network.

Vadis is the old CD or DVD based system. Vida is the new net based system.
