    check enthusiast forums for the model, a lot of times there will be mega links to a factory service manual
    if that fails, check ebay, chinks usually sell digital downloads of the fsm for like $10.
    if that fails, buy a month of alldata diy and screenshot everything you can using one of those screenshot extensions that let you save the entire page into a pdf

      nearly every haynes manual has some sort of error(s), you always want the OEM service manual in addition to it

          Haynes manual for my car
          >to change the left side/transmission mount you have to remove the subframe brace cross bar
          Reality:
          >you just have to remove the air box everything is accessible from above in the engine bay

          Haynes manual
          >to change the rear dogbone engine mount you only "remove the heat shield and mount bracket then remove the mount"
          Reality:
          >have to remove the entire air intake (to access the bracket) and also the entire subframe brace assembly (to reach one of the heat shield bolts and two of the bracket bolts)

          Yes haynes is not great.

            >Haynes manual in reality
            >torque specs are in the front on the chapter
            >reference chapter 2 section b for disassembly
            If you are halfway into the book chances are the first half has covered everything else to get to that point and assembly. Its a pure skill issue on your end if your reading comprehension is that of a redditgay.

            Not that anon, but those Haynes manuals have been garbage for years.
            they've really stopped putting in depth of details in them and just stuck to really rudimentary info.
            That's why I believe they don't even make them anymore.

            I had a Haynes manual for a 5 cylinder Colorado that was actually using photos from a V10 Dodge.
            It was just showing one bank of cylinders because they needed a photo of a 5cyl.
            half things in there weren't even from that truck.

            Can confirm. The only thing they're useful for is a quick way to reference bolt torques, but even then, they aren't always right.

            This, they always reference the things to do first by page number or whatever right at the start of any section.

    Because people have to tear-down an entire car and document it and they don't sell like crazy. It's well worth $35. If you frick up, miss a step, and break a part when wrenching it'll cost more than the manual would've.
    I can't imagine not having a shop manual. For my last car I had 2 of them and cross-referenced.

      Car and college manuals and everything?. If there was a biblical effort of library system, it might be called library genesis as bible started with genesis.

    You can gain access to Chilton Library by googling that with and the word library. It isn’t Haynes but decent for the repairs I feel comfortable doing. Should give you quite a few different libraries in different cities that do offer it online. One downside is that many require a library card to gain access BUT… I have found a couple after about 10 visits to different library websites that only ask for a valid zip code. So if you just happen to accidentally find your way to New Mexico library website and use a Roswell zip code you might get access. Shhhh

    Skip the Haynes. Get factory service data. Just the theory and operation plus wiring diagrams are worth the cost.
