Technical Service Bulletin and Volvo Safety Information
Technical Service Bulletins are recommended repair procedures for mechanics to follow, allowing them to properly diagnose and fix problems with your vehicle. They are issued by vehicle manufacturers to fix repeated, specific problems and are often written by the first service technician to come up with the procedure to fix the problem. TSB's don't involve manufacturer recalls and the procedures described in them aren't offered for free by service dealers, unlike repairs resulting from a manufacturer recall. TSB's cut repair times down significantly by saving troubleshooting time and providing step-by-step procedures, saving consumers and dealerships time and money.
Below, we've listed some useful resources for looking up Technical Service Bulletins, safety problems and other useful information about TSB's.
