How to Easily Access Automaker Repair Information and Not Fall Behind


The uni­body vehi­cle changed every­thing for those work­ing in auto­mo­tive repair, . Shops and deal­er depart­ments that didn’t evolve quick­ly didn’t sur­vive, and the same is true about hav­ing access to automak­ers’ repair infor­ma­tion and data­bas­es these days. There’s no way you can fall behind. Here are Anderson’s sug­ges­tions for get­ting up to date:

1. The infor­ma­tion is avail­able on some of the automak­ers’ tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion web­sites such as and Oth­ers car­ry a fee. You can find all the OEM sites at
2. There are oth­er options for access­ing the infor­ma­tion through an ALLDATA sub­scrip­tion, or through the increas­ing inte­gra­tion of the infor­ma­tion in the esti­mat­ing sys­tems.
3. More good news: these sub­scrip­tions can eas­i­ly pay for them­selves. When you know a pro­ce­dure is required – and have the OEM repair infor­ma­tion to prove it – you can get paid for what needs to be done and that you are doing, Ander­son says.
