Volkswagen offers Web users comprehensive access to its vehicles' service manuals through one of three separate search algorithms. The company's guided search allows users to find documentation based on the specific model and year.
Volkswagen's manual search option allows Web users to look up Volkswagen service manuals by keyword, model, model year, engine code, transmission code or category. The company designed this search mode to make finding service manuals simple for anyone who knows the engine code of their Volkswagen vehicle.
The automotive manufacturer also provides a search engine based on unique vehicle identification numbers, but requires users to log in before gaining access to their VIN search engine.
