Couple of notes on how to read this manual. A White wrench in a black square has the units N-m (kg-m, ft-lb) A Black wrench in a white square has the units N-m (kg-m, in-lb) So - the bolt very top left in your diagram should be tightened to 51 inch pounds (i.e, 4.25 ft-lbs - not very tight!). The nut on the left immediately below that bolt should be ...

tl dr: Unless you have a leak somewhere in your manual transmission, leave it alone and don't worry about it. If you look at the maintenance schedule for Hondas, you'll find there's no schedule for changing standard transmission fluid. You have to inspect the fluid, but there's nothing for changing it. With all things for maintenance, you need to follow ...

Owners Manual is only a basic operations manual. Not worth paying for (did you not get one with the car?) The Haynes Manual is a good starting point if you want to do any work on your car. As you get more advanced, you'll want to get a copy of the Shop Manual; this is the gospel that the dealer mechanics work from (or should work from..). Much much more ...

This is something like buying a large farm at a great price with just one glitch: the owner tells you there may be a couple landmines hidden on the property somewhere. With this amount of lack of service, the vehicle risks having some serious engine wear that will show sooner or later. If servicing included oil changes, you'll have a fairly large risk of ...

Because "cold" pressures are much more likely to be consistent then "warm" pressures and barring things like one side of the car having been in hot sun for a few hours should be pretty evenly "cold" all round as well. Driving a mile or two to the garage to check pressures and inflate them is unlikely to have a significant impact on tire temperature so is ...

The 2006 Ford Econoline (E-Series) Service Manual. Since those manuals don't exist new anymore, I would just look on ebay for a paper copy or a "free" pdf online. There's a lot of rules to acquiring a free one legally so I am not going to point you to a random site, but you can find them fairly quickly with a google search. The manufacturer service manuals ...

I recently ordered a manual for a very old Yamaha motorcycle. You can goto this website http://www.yamahapubs.com/ You can use that website to lookup the part numbers for Yamaha motorcycles all the way back to 1971. You do not want the owner's manual. It tells you things like "take your motorcycle to the dealer to have the oil changed". You do want the ...

You can purchase your user & service manual from the dealer. Some older manuals may no longer be available from the manufacturer, so you will have to search eBay, clubs, etc, to find one. Haynes creates manuals that can be purchased online or in your local automotive stores. Do your research first, some people claim that they can be better or worse than ...

Reputable sources (e.g. Haynes, Chilton's, Alldata, etc) are paying a licensing fee to republish OEM information, or at the very least asking permission. Haynes is probably the only "paper" DIY repair manual source left, and typically they only publish information on older popular vehicles, where the income stream from the OEM manual is little or no ...

I couldn't find a manual specifically for the Vaneo, but given that it is based on the first-gen A-Class the corresponding Haynes manual should do the trick for most common jobs. They actually state explicitly that it "also covers major mechanical features of Vaneo". I hope that is adequate for your case. https://haynes.com/en-gb/mercedes-benz-class-petrol-...

Judging from the ratios between the numbers, they are different units: Newton.meters (kilogram.meters, pound.feet) 1 Kg.m = 9.8 N.m and 1 lb.ft = 1.36 N.m From the diagram, I would think the cylindrical thing is a separate part, which is screwed into the cylinder head with a torque of 14.7 to make sure it is fully inserted into the head, and then the ...

It refers to the finger tip single-wipe operaration, where the control lever is tipped/tapped/moved against a spring. The other positions (intermittent, normal, fast) are not sprung: the lever stays where it is put. In my Skoda Octavia, the lever is tapped in the downward direction to get a single wipe. The other settings are in the upward direction.

Your library might have Chilton’s or Haye’s manuals for that era. That’s what I used for all my vehicles back then. Many have been digitized on www.archive.org. when the copyrights expired but unlikely for this one. However you might find some restoration clubs. https://archive.org/search.php?query=GMC%20B-Series&sin=TXT I’ll let you do the ...

Then you ask for the workshop manual as part of the sale. No salesman will let a sale, and their commission, fall through for the price of a manual. But if you wait until after, then you pay...

The parts manufacturer, in the example Hella, will produce a range of parts which goes into a range of cars. When the cars are new, the manufacturer of the parts will have agreements in place to supply certain products to certain vehicle manufacturers. For example, the original Volkswagen timing belt on my Mk6 Golf was marked up with Continental logos and ...

If there are doubts about the aftermarket publishers recycling figures, here is a late 70s Datsun factory service manual: and Haynes.. You can pretty much find every drawing in the Haynes book in the FSM. Re torque specs Haynes took the liberty of rounding ranges to a single number, eg 93-107 ft-lb in the FSM is 100 in the Haynes book. I did at a quick ...

There are many methods of tightening threaded fasteners. The most common being torque control tightening. Torque specifications are determined by the fastener being used. After engineers determine the size and strength for the application, whether the fastener is dry or lubricated, they can calculate the torque specification. T = K x U x D x P T = torque ...

You can buy earlier ones from Best Brands Repair Manuals and Helm Inc, but not yet for the 2015. I'm surprised the dealership has told you they'd give you the service manuals. Are you sure they aren't offering you the owner's manual? They don't usually hand out service manuals. Also, a lot of the newer service manuals for dealerships actually come via ...

The repair manual usually includes most or all of the information in the user's manual (at least in VW Auto Group). In my experience, for someone having an account on auto forums or even this site, it's worth it.

It's not only about the timing belt replacement. Subaru Sweden just changed the word miles to km. So, running the same distance, my 2005 Impreza needs two services in Canada and USA but three - in Sweden! Good för business. For them (105 miles = 168 km).

I couldn't tell you why there is a difference, but both recommendations are wrong in my opinion. We always recommend changing a timing belt at 80,000 miles. No need to do it sooner and doing it later may cost you an engine overhaul from bending the valves when the belt breaks.
