MAN TGA Operator's and Maintenance Manual

MAN TGA Maintenance Manual

The Maintenance Manual includes details of the maintenance type and a description of maintenance work. For details of special bodies and attachments as well as additional equipment, please refer to the service documentation provided by the manufacturer concerned.

Maintenance work must be carried out properly and at the specified intervals in order to ensure constant vehicle availability, road safety and a long vehicle service life. Recommended maintenance work which requires specialist knowledge may only be carried out by qualified personnel.

You will find a detailed explanation of the MAN maintenance system and the intervals at which the various services are due, depending on the maintenance group, in the current "Maintenance Recommendations and Recommended Service Products" booklet.

Confirmation that maintenance work has been performed correctly and at the specified intervals is to be entered in the "Maintenance Record" together with the relevant details.

In the event of claims under warranty, evidence must be brought that proper maintenance was carried out at the specified intervals, that approved or recommended service products were used and that genuine MAN spare parts were installed. Therefore, we would ask the vehicle owner to always have the maintenance work carried out only in authorised service centres and the staff of the service centres to follow the instructions and recommendations given in this Maintenance Manual.


  • Always fit new seals and gaskets to replace ones that have worked loose
  • Use a torque wrench to tighten connections for which a tightening torque has been specified
  • Clean removed parts before refitting them. Check them for damage if the instructions do not recommend that you should renew them
  • Fit new hose lines if the outer jacket is damaged or has become brittle. This also applies if the hose fittings are damaged or if the hose is coming out of its fittings
  • The specialist staff responsible must determine the cause of malfunctions, incorrect settings and damage, even if the rectification of such problems does not form part of the maintenance work
