The Repair Facility Manual is divided by chapter into PDF format files. To view or print PDF files, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not already have Reader installed on your computer, it is available free of charge from Adobe's Web site.
Changes in law or policy may require periodic updates to the Repair Facility Manual. Revised chapters are no longer mailed to licensees, but will be placed on the Michigan Department of State's Web site (www.Michigan.gov/sos) with revision dates for comparison. Any corresponding chapters in your Repair Facility Manual having dates that do not match the revision dates should be removed and replaced.
If a conflict appears between the language of this manual and the language of Michigan law, the law will prevail. Please refer to specific statute or consult an attorney if any conflict is perceived or encountered. The Motor Vehicle Service and Repair Act can be accessed online at http://www.legislature.mi.gov.
