I guess for $25 they are slightly better than nothing

Not to put too fine a point on it, but: Haynes manuals suck.

Why would you pay for a manual that doesnt even have complete schematics in it?(complete anything really)


The Haynes manual is 256pages. Thats about 1/6th of what is actually in the factory manuals. So I guess you get whay you pay for, the factory manual is $135, and worth every last friggin red cent if you actually need information.

Buy it.

This info is actually in your owners manual, if anyone actually reads it

i got mine for about 15 plus shipping. it's well worth it IF (and it's a BIG if) you already have a basic understanding of how things work. If you know nothing about cars, it will be hard to understand. But it tells you how to do anything you can possibly thing of from routine maintenance, to totally tearing apart the engine. a great thing is that it also has all the torque specs for everything, which is nice so you don't do something like snap your suspension mount twice because you didn't nkow that the bolt was only 15 ft/lbs lol

yea, talk about pissed! got a zzp mid length header/dp combo, took off the strut bar to get it on. putting the strut bar back on, POP! wasn't even torqued down yet. ok, whatever, bought a new one. took the suspension apart, put the new one on, POP! same thing! on the third try i got it though, better believe i used the tiniest little 1/4" drive wrench i had!
