Yeah, I am not sure what is going but it appears to be gone. There are wiring diagrams on the ozvolvo.org archives if i recall correctly. Plus it's nice to buy the print book for your year car. they can be found on ebay and automotive book sites.

That sucks. I literally just downloaded a 940 shift lock circuit diagram from there 3 days ago.

Could've sworn that was the Geely-endorsed site with the flash viewer...

Pretty much everything is on the OZ site, it is just not easily searchable but still usable.

As finishing the archive portal off has taken ages, I'm happy to release the raw file list, which is 9GB, however it comes with a big grain of salt, which is that a lot of the file names will tell you absolutely nothing about what's in the file.

Works for me. While most are just xxx.pdf or xxx.jpg a lot of the files have enough description to find what you are looking for.

Pretty sure you're thinking about this site:

volvotips.com

It's all flash based which I pretty much despise.

Pretty sure I have a site download of volvowiringdiagrams.com. Not 100% complete but pretty close.

I have never heard of that site. That's awesome. Thanks. The 94 940 schematics I accessed a few days ago came right up. Some are better than none.

Dang, I just downloaded the wiring diagrams for my 245 a week ago.

What is happening to all our sites?!
(Also, I can't find, let alone afford, a full set of physical green books for my cars. Having decent resolution online versions is important - and the flash manuals don't appear to cover the last few model years and are low resolution comparatively.)

It's possible to extract the raw pages from the flash SWF's, by the way. It's easy enough under linux or mac os - and might be doable on windows as well with either Cygwin or Windows 10 bash.

Get swftools, then in a bash shell use this script in a folder with nothing but your SWF (and maybe a copy of this script) in it. It will output all of the jpeg images from the file.

Still inferior quality to that of the PDF's, though.

Nice! Thanks for the heads up, just gave it a whirl on my linux box. Does the job.

No problem! Happy to help.
On a side note, I was already a Linux guy, but you have no idea how happy I was when I discovered a lot of other RWD Volvo drivers were, too.

Assorted brands and models over at http://www.carknowledge.info/
Like some other sites, kind of fiddly to find what you want.
Individual diagrams, rather than complete vehicles all at once.
