Service to Volkswagen owners is of top priority
to the Volkswagen organization and has always included
the continuing development and introduction of new and
expanded services. In line with this purpose, Volkswagen
of America, Inc. has introduced this Volkswagen Official
Service Manual. The aim throughout has been simplicity,
clarity and completeness, with practical explanations,
step-by-step procedures, and accurate specifications.
Though the do-it-yourself Volkswagen owner will find this
manual indispensable as a source of the same detailed
maintenance and repair information available at an
authorized Volkswagen dealer, the Volkswagen owner who
has no intention of working on his or her car will find
that reading and owning this manual will make it possible
to discuss repairs more intelligently with a professional
