We describe an efficient way to use the Sn-module structure in the computation of the multilinear identities of degree n of a given algebra. The method was used to show that M2(G) (where G is the Grassmann algebra) has identities of degree 8, but of no smaller degree. Explicit identities of degree 8 are given. It was also checked that PIdeg(M2,1(G)) ≥ 9 and that M3(F) has no identities of degree ≤ 8 apart from the consequences of the standard identity S6.
