The "Service Label" is attached to the body of every Volvo
Sedan and Station Wagon. This label contains codes that identify the vehicle model and the
type of body,
chassis, engine, brake, fuel pump, clutch, alternator, and steering gear. Sometimes these codes
are required by your Volvo Retailer Parts Manager to provide you with
the correct Genuine Volvo Parts.
This label is on every Volvo and is located in a variety of places depending upon
the year and model. Look for this label on the rear cargo/trunk area,
on the door pillar, or inside the engine
compartment on either a shock absorber tower or radiator support panel.
The codes assist in the correct identification of parts needed to complete maintenance
or a repair. For instance, it is necessary to identify the type of brake calipers on the car to order brake pads. The code "1"
or "2" on the Service Label identifies the type of calipers on the car.
