You can save money when you do it yourself with Haynes! Maintaining and repairing your car, van or truck can seem a daunting task if you've never done it before, but it will put cash back in your pocket. Garages have labour rates that can amount to well over £100 per hour, so if you get your tools out and have a go you’ll save hundreds of pounds.

The tutorials below are designed to make you feel more confident in taking an active part in your vehicle's service and repair. They'll also give you an idea of how much you'll pay for the part(s) you're replacing and how much a garage is likely to charge you in labour to carry out the job.

Once you've found a task you can do yourself, your next step is get the information unique to your car in a print or online Haynes Manual – search for yours here.
