Collision Information Website Access: General Motors

Why do I need a subscription to an OEM website if we have full subscription access to the I-CAR Repairability Technical Support (RTS) portal? This is a question received on a regular basis through Ask I-CAR. Let’s take a look at why and how to purchase an OEM subscription.

With your RTS subscription, you gain access to a research department in your company for the hard to find information and on the information that needs clarification. While we can't send out vehicle maker repair procedures, (due to copyright laws) we can let you know if the information exists before you spend hours and money only to find out that the information does not exist.

There are two GM websites available. The free, www.geniunegmparts.com, website is a convenient one-stop to locate collision repair manuals, technical documents, positions statements, and the like. The pay website is where body repair manuals that are not located on the free site can be found as well as vehicle service information, the owner manual, the accessories manual, and other vehicle-specific bulletins are located.
