NOT Free. But if you have a one-time, or very occasional need to look up something in the Service Manual, you can get 3 days of access for $20. Beats paying $325 for the full set of printed books if you just want to check one or two things.

Edit: Some additional information:

The GM Tech site is NOT a reproduction of the Helms manuals. You can kind of jump around from procedure to procedure. So if you need to remove part A then you discover you need to remove part B and then you discover you have to jump to part F. So it is hard to keep track. Open new stuff in new tabs to help keep track of where you are. The electrical diagrams are a bit better than the helms manuals as you can explode stuff and jump around from harness to harness. They also include the commercial (Mouser) harness part numbers so it makes them possible to obtain.

You need to use MS Internet Explorer 11. Other browsers are not supported well. Find and install the SI Tiff Viewer Plugin from GM that is required to see the electrical and other diagrams on the site. I also recommend you install PDFCreator so that you can save the interesting pages by "printing" them to a PDF file if you need access while you are working on your car later. Much better than printing them to plain old paper.

Why can't GM just provide a PDF file to download for free after you spent $70k plus or whatever. no printing fees, no trees cut down just 1 file uploaded once to their site for all c7 owners to download?

Because they know if they make it available as a PDF it will be pirated in short order.

Welcome to our forum O-Town. Comprehensive service manuals are normally only available for sale regardless of OEM.
