Downloading repair manuals

Anybody had any good or bad experiences with the CD repair manuals that are available online in lieu of Haydon or chilton repair manuals. Considerably cheaper, just wonder about the info, is it taken from factory manuals or some other source?

Try enthusiast forums for your make of car. I know BMW, Jaguar and Mercedes forums such as:

are a wealth of info along with downloadable manuals. I’m sure there is a forum for your make as well.

As always, google is your friend.


One needs to be very careful about publishing copyrighted material online…The owners of these copyrights will come after you and damages can run into the millions $$.
