Haynes AutoFix is a mixture of vehicle servicing information, specifications, generic DIY tutorials, videos, technical drawings, fault-finding, and explanations, along with step-by-step vehicle specific descriptions for the more complicated tasks like timing belt renewals.
Over 40 generic tutorials are provided, explaining how and why the various servicing tasks are performed, with tips, related tasks, tools required, safety precautions and levels of difficulty. Some of the tutorials include video guides as well.
The vehicle-specific information includes specification data, torque wrench settings, capacities, lubricants, maintenance/service schedules, fuse allocations, steering geometry, and technical drawings.
Note that Haynes AutoFix is not based on a vehicle strip and rebuild. No vehicles were harmed during its production!
Haynes AutoFix covers tasks a typical DIYer is likely to perform at home, such as maintenance, and removal/refitting of components.

Haynes AutoFix takes a very different approach to providing vehicle repair information. The generic tutorials are thorough and have been written by our most experienced authors, but they do not relate to your specific vehicle. You will see pictures and videos of other vehicles by way of general explanation.
The data published in Haynes AutoFix is the same as is used by professional workshops. It is accurate and trustworthy, just as you would expect from Haynes.
Having produced paper manuals in their original format for 60 years, we have taken a commercial decision to cease publishing any new printed manuals. We continue to publish our extensive back catalogue of automotive and motorcycle manuals. Haynes AutoFix covers almost 9 in 10 cars on the road, allowing us to provide repair content to many more motorists than was previously possible. It is an exciting new period for Haynes with an all-digital product that will benefit from continual updates and improvements.
Once you have purchased AutoFix once, there are no renewals and no additional costs. Whenever content is added or the product is upgraded, you will receive the latest version of the product for your vehicle.
