The benchmark in comprehensive technical information for your workshop.
Snap-on Information System Maintenance and Repair Data is an intuitive, easy-to-use system, refined over years of development. It covers most of the essential mechanical repair information.
The key to data is not just its quality, accuracy, usefulness and relevance but also how it is presented for your benefit.
Finding your vehicle is easy
Identification code locations provide you with the recommended method to specify your vehicle.
Snap-on Information System Maintenance and Repair Data features various search options such as engine code, European Type Approval and VIN.
Depending on the country, a number plate search is also available.
- VIN and identification plate locations
- VIN decoder
- Equipment codes
Clear, comprehensive and, above all, helpful
A single overview of the OEM service intervals enables a quick selection of the required service.
Service item intervals allow quick access to maintenance information (time and distance) for specific components.
Full maintenance schedules, which are printable for convenience, are provided for make – model – derivative, presented by intervals and broken down by subject (engine, brakes, etc.) or location (engine compartment, under the vehicle, etc.).
Additional work is also displayed, following the OEM recommendations.
All tasks have a corresponding OEM code and time. The total time is also displayed at the top and bottom of the page.
A unique feature is the availability of logical follow-up tasks which makes it easier to complete the work sheet.
- Maintenance schedules (OEM-based)
- Printable work sheets
- Smart links to adjustment data
- Links to parts
- Follow-up tasks
- Additional tasks
- Service times
- Service indicator reset manuals
- Timing belt renewal intervals
- Tyre pressure monitoring system procedures
Where necessary, there are links to detailed and annotated technical drawings of components or adjustment values, as well as to subsections relating to additional aspects of the task.
There are instructions on how to disconnect and reconnect batteries, and on resetting service indicators and tyre pressure monitoring systems.
Available ‘smart’ links to main subjects:
- Adjustment Data
- Lubricants and Fluids
- Repair Manuals
- Repair Times
- Technical Drawings
Available ‘smart’ links to other features and subjects:
- Body and paint report
- Vehicle inspection report
- Tyre inspection report
'Comprehensive' doesn't begin to describe the coverage
The specifications provided range from torque settings to cylinder firing order, from idle speed to NOx emissions, and from cooling system cap pressure to rear brake disc thickness.
- Ancillary drive belt
- Wheel alignment
- Emission data
- Tyre sizes and pressures
- Torque settings
- Air-conditioning service connectors
Lubricants and Fluids
All conceivable specifications are provided here, in one view, conveniently linked to related data for ease of use, and featuring technical illustrations showing the location of filler and drain plugs.
Tech features detailed, step-by-step repair and service instructions for those tasks which, while being relatively routine, require specific procedures for the car in question.
Again, Tech provides technical illustrations and, where necessary, reference numbers identifying special tools.
In this way, Tech helps boost productivity and improve workshop flow.
- Timing belt; removal / installation
- Timing chain; removal / installation
- Ancillary drive belt; removal / installation
- Clutch: removal / installation
- Manual transmission; removal / installation
- Cooling system; drain / refill
- Diesel particulate filter
- Battery procedure
- (Semi-) automatic transmission fluid level check and drain / refill
Snap-on Information System expands official (OEM) repair times to take account of associated tasks, making its data more helpful and relevant in the real world.
The module contains numerous included tasks for overlap calculation.
By listing follow-up tasks we ensure that no labour times are overlooked.
This helps to maximise workshop revenue.
- Overlap technology
- Specific and generic times
- Follow-up work
- Links to parts
The cost estimate is the starting point for quick estimates on the basis of intelligent links between data, repair times and parts.
The result can be easily exported to be used in the part ordering work flow.
- Combined overview of selected maintenance and repairs
- Option to add jobs and parts manually
- Easy export functionality
A picture is worth a thousand words. Snap-on Information System has over 100,000 high-quality technical drawings in its database.
Far from being generic images, these are bespoke illustrations with featured parts highlighted for ease of identification and the option to link directly to a shopping cart in a parts catalogue.
Torque settings are indicated in the drawing to ensure that the correct torque is used for the specified bolt/nut.
There are also notifications for bolts/nuts which must be renewed and of any requirement for using locking compound.
- Links to parts
- Torque settings
Ensure that the vehicle conforms to safety standards by informing the customer about potential safety recalls for their vehicle.
- Safety related recall actions issued by OEM
- Link to fault codes and related cases
