Please note: USPS shipments of print manuals may take up to 10 days to arrive due to shipping delays caused by COVID-19. We will continue updating this notice with current information.
From the very beginning, Haynes realized the best way to understand a vehicle and write accurate, comprehensive repair procedures was to bring the vehicle into our workshop and actually take it apart – the way you would at home. To do this, we have purchased and disassembled countless vehicles – more than one for every book published. This process allows us to verify the procedures we put into the manual and provide the reader with hundreds of photographs. With mechanics and authors working together on each project, we discover new, simpler methods and work-arounds to avoid you having to use special tools. While the number of parts removed varies from project to project, the teardown is always to the extent necessary to provide an array of photographs and to develop the new methods required for the manual.
Unfortunately this isn't included in our product range.
We've made it easy to search for a manual for your specific vehicle on the Haynes website. There are various ways you can proceed to find your vehicle:
1. You will find a Vehicle Search area (Find your manual) on the top part of most site pages where you can simply enter your vehicle "Year", the "Make" and "Model" to find out if we have a specific print and/or online manual book for your needs.
2. Using the top navigation selections, you will find category tabs most with drop-down selections for "Automotive Manuals", "Motorcycle Manuals", etc. You can start there and proceed to find your Make and Model.
3. You can enter your vehicle specifics into the search box. For example, “2005 Ford Explorer”.
There are two possible reasons:
1/ It's too new.
2/ The model range did not have enough vehicles produced.
We typically do not produce manuals for vehicles less than two years old. And we don't consider creating a manual until there are enough vehicles on the road for us to cover the time and costs of developing one of our comprehensive manuals (which includes a complete teardown and rebuild of the vehicle and the time/costs to author and print the manual). There are thousands of year/make/model combinations of vehicles out there with new ones being introduced all the time. It would take an army of qualified technicians and writers to cover such quantities. We have to be a bit more selective.
The Haynes Techbook series provides an in-depth look at focused areas of vehicle repair that may span multiple years/makes/models, while our Haynes Repair Manuals series is year/make/model specific. Like the Haynes Repair Manuals series, each Techbook offers easy-to-follow text plus hundreds of hands-on photos to help you do the job right!
You can view all the available online Techbooks via the links below and more will be added on an ongoing basis:
In most manuals, Haynes covers all popular sub-models, engine options and equipment installations. For example, a manual on a Ford Mustang would cover six-cylinder and V8 models, the GT sub-model, manual and automatic transmission and accessories such as ABS and air conditioning. However, sub-models with very limited production, such as an SVT Cobra, may not be included. Any exclusions will be specifically listed in the manual description.
Haynes covers procedures a typical do-it-yourselfer is likely to perform at home, such as maintenance, tune-up and removal/installation of components. When special equipment and knowledge is required, such as with a wheel alignment or a transmission overhaul, the procedure may not be included.
Here is a list of procedures that are generally covered in all Haynes automotive repair manuals. Some procedures may not apply to your vehicle if the component listed is not installed:
From the time a vehicle arrives in our workshop to the time the manual is available is about 6 months. Writing a manual takes a team of technical authors roughly 3 months working with our Haynes certified mechanics during the vehicle teardown and rebuild process. This is followed by the manual production and proofing process and finally printing prior to distribution to retail locations in the U.S. and globally.
All Haynes repair manuals have numbered Sections within each Chapter. The Contents refers to these Section numbers, NOT the page numbers. So Section 5 might be on Page 3.
When it is necessary to specify a torque value for a particular fastener, Haynes will provide it in either foot-pounds (ft-lbs.) or inch-pounds (in-lbs.). One foot-pound of torque is equivalent to 12 inch-pounds of torque. Torque values below approximately 15 ft-lbs. are expressed in inch-pounds, since most foot-pound torque wrenches are not accurate at these smaller values.
Yes, Haynes also offers online/digital manuals! Online Manuals are an electronic version of our iconic printed Haynes Repair Manual. Haynes has converted hundreds of our most popular Automotive, Motorcycle, Scooter and ATV manuals to electronic format. These are available from www.haynes.com and select versions are also available for purchase at leading auto parts retailers. Just search for your specific vehicle and both Print and Online Manual options will appear, if we have that manual in both formats. Haynes will continue to add further online manual titles as the conversion process continues. Haynes traditional printed product line will continue to be marketed aggressively with an ongoing program of updates and new titles as well. Many customers are choosing the best of both formats and purchasing a print and online manual together!
