VW 181 Facts & Figures

Military manuals

Bundeswehr (German Federal Army) manuals are called 'TDv' which stands for Technische Dienst-vorschrift (Technical Service order). Those applicable for the VW 181 are listed below. The Bundeswehr reissued most of their manuals for the VW 181 once, sometimes twice - generally speaking, the formats were improved with each issue, being supplemented with an increasing number of photographs and illustrations.

The Danish Army published the manual:

  • BTVJ-2310-910-10: Midlertidig betjeningsvejledning for Folkevogn (VW), 4x2, M181, person, alle typer ("temporary operating instructions for Volkswagen (VW), 4x2, M181, person, all types"), dated November 1974.

    The September 1974 version of the spare parts list is available on-line at Loring Kohrt's The Internet 181 Club.
