Haynes Manual

Postby Paddy » Wed Oct 08, 2008 5:43 pm

Would anybody have a link to a copy of the Haynes Manual in PDF form...? Call me tight but I don’t want to give Halfords 20 quid for it, would like a copy all the same!

Thanks in advance.

How did they send it to you? Hard copy or PDF?

I have heard that there is a PDF copy out there just cant find it for the life of me.

Yea thats about hit the nail on the head.

So i take it you dont have a link then!?!

@ulrich
very bad temper indeed....I am not sure if this forum needs attitudes like that, not caring about copyrights and asking for stolen copies of sth....

Would you like Haynes to continue taking the considerable time to produce these manuals, perhaps so a future car purchase will also be covered?

Yes? Then buy the bloody thing, it's not expensive. :banghead

Openly asking for a link to an illegal copy and suggesting a fellow member scans pages of their manual (that they presumably paid for); that's very, very low in my opinion. :roll:

I don’t think I hurt anybody by asking... but on reflection your point is taken on board. I’ll work an extra couple of hours this week...

But hey thanks to those that offered...

O and one other point... '72uoba' I would imagine that you have downloaded a music track before 'illegally'(p2p) if so enough said... if you get my drift.

sign up for local library!

it may sound a bit geekish but i just signed up for first time in my life when i saw prices of a Haynes manual. its free and you can reserve the book online!
if u need it longer u can keep renewing the loan. i was amazed to find library's did DVD's aswell these days!!!
