What is this site about?
This site is about Haynes and its Automobile and Motorcycle repair manuals.
We hope you will learn about our wide assortment of manuals on this site (over 500 covering most car, truck, motorcycle and atv on the road) and then visit your local auto parts retailer to make your purchase (or order your specific book from the counter representative if its not in stock).
Or, if you'd rather, you can order directly from Haynes on our site.
Haynes manuals are here to help you save time and money when you do it yourself and feel good about the job you did!!
Where do I go to find a Haynes manual for my vehicle?
We've made it easy to search for a manual for your specific vehicle on the new Haynes site. There are various ways you can proceed to find your vehicle:
1. On the top, you will find category tabs for "Car Manuals", "Motorcycle Manuals", etc. You can start there and proceed to find your Make and Model.
2. You will find a "Vehicle Search" area on the top part of the site pages where you can simply enter your vehicle "Year", the "Make" and "Model" to find out if we have a specific book for your needs.
3. You can also enter your vehicle specifics into the search box.
Why can't I find a manual for my vehicle?
Two possible reasons: either it's too new, or the model range doesn't have enough vehicles. We don't normally produce manuals for vehicles less than two years old. And we can't consider doing a manual until there are enough vehicles on the road for us to cover the costs of developing one of our books(including the complete teardown and rebuild costs that we do before every book, and the time/ money to author and print the books).
How long does it take to produce a Haynes manual?
From the time a vehicle arrives in our workshop to the time the manual is available is about 5 months. Writing a manual takes a team of technical authors roughly 3 months working with our Haynes mechanic during the vehicle teardown and rebuild, followed by production and printing prior to distribution to retail locations.
Do you publish your manuals in Electronic format?
Using a hardcopy, printed manual while working on a vehicle remains a choice that many people prefer.
However, Haynes now offers digital manuals! Digital Manuals are an electronic version of our iconic Haynes Repair Manual. Haynes has converted the top 218 selling Automotive manuals and 61 Motorcycle manuals to electronic format. These are now available from www.haynes.com. Just search for your specific vehicle and both Print and Digital Manual options will appear if we have that coverage. Haynes will add further coverage as the conversion process continues.
There is a limit to printing out pages from our digital manuals. The limit is 50 sections in a 6 month timeframe and 6 sections in a week. Most electronic repair manuals sold on the market do not allow any printing. But, Haynes recognizes there are times when you need to print out a page and bring it with you to your vehicle during a messy repair.
Haynes traditional printed product line will continue to be marketed aggressivley with an ongoing program of updates and new titles.
Digital manuals bring an extra dimension to the Haynes Group that will allow us to satisfy customers whether they prefer Print or Electronic delivery.
Do you sell wiring diagrams separately?
No. Every Haynes manual includes a set of wiring diagrams covering the most frequently required circuits. If, after buying a manual, you find that it does not contain the diagram you need, contact Haynes technical support and we will try to help. You can reach us by firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are the system requirements for digital manuals and how do I troubleshoot problems?

Haynes Digital Manuals' information system is designed to be displayed on popular browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari). Our system is periodically updated for best user experience, and you may find that older versions of these browsers do not function optimally. As an initial troubleshooting step, we suggest you update to the latest version of your browser.
Problems accessing the system
Haynes Digital Manuals' data and operating software are located entirely on our servers. Nothing is ever copied to your computer’s hard drive. This allows us to continually update data and software, making it easy for you to access your manual from any computer or mobile device. This also prevents any problems related to outdated or corrupted files on your computer or other device. If you are experiencing problems accessing the system, please follow the steps below:
- Make sure the username (email address) and password you are using are the same as what you selected at the time of registration. Sometimes users change their email address and don’t realize that their previous email address needs to be used as their username.
- Attempt to access your manual from another computer or device that meets minimum system requirements. If you cannot access your manual online from either computer/device, check access and speed on other websites that use large files, such as high-resolution photos and videos. If you can access these sites but not the Manuals Online site, the Manuals Online site may be down momentarily. Try accessing again in about 15 minutes. If you still cannot achieve access, send an email to email@example.com, following the instructions under Technical Support below.
If you are able to access the system from one computer or device, but not another, check the following items on the computer experiencing difficulties. One of these is almost certainly the problem:
- Pop-up blockers will prevent access to the system and can also prevent the display of wiring diagrams and high-resolution photos. Generally, this is an option within your browser settings. Additionally, anti-virus and online security programs can prevent access. As a test, disable these programs and see if you can now access the system and view images
- You may have spyware/malware infecting your computer and using system resources, including internet bandwidth, without your knowledge. Generally, one scanner is not adequate to detect all possible infections. This is particularly true with PC’s
- A download may be occurring in the background, and you are unaware of it as it draws away your bandwidth
- A Windows or Mac dialog box is sitting open and unanswered in the computer background, stalling your computer CPU while it awaits your yes/no input
- Your browser memory cache is excessively full. Look for “Options” or “Internet Options” in your browser’s settings and search for the option that allows you to clear your cache
- Mobile devices (tablet, smart phone, etc.) sometimes experience problems due to outdated browsers or insufficient connection speed. Try accessing your online manual from a computer with a high-speed connection. If this provides sufficient speed, check with your wireless provider and/or device manufacturer to seek a solution.
- Your internet bandwidth is inadequate for the site. Even though you have met our minimum requirements based upon the speed advertised by your internet provider, you may not be achieving this speed, usually for one of the reasons listed below. You can check your actual speed quickly at one of the free online speed checking sites, such as dslreports.com.
Possible causes of a slow internet connection:
- If using a plug-in connection for your internet, the hardware connecting your computer to the modem/router may be malfunctioning.
- Your modem/router may not be configured correctly.
- Your bandwidth may be shared among other computers, resulting in slow speeds even though you meet minimum system requirements. Possibly, your neighbors could be accessing your wireless connection without your knowledge (can easily happen if you’re not using a password or your password is weak). You can verify your actual connection speed quickly through a free online speed checker, such as dslreports.com
- For plug-in connections, your network interface card (NIC) may be older and not capable of high speeds (10/100 preferred, 10/1000 recommended).
- Your ISP (internet service provider) may be having issues with routing signals to you
- Radio or microwave devices in your home might be degrading your internet wireless signal.
If you are still unable to access your manual, email Technical Support, following the instructions below.
Technical support is provided via email, as we find this to be the most efficient method of providing you the answers you need. We will do our best to respond to your concern within 24 hours. Please provide the following:
- Your login information
- Details of your computer hardware
- Your operating system and version
- Your browser type and version (please update your browser to the latest version prior to contacting us)
- Your internet connection type and speed, as verified on an online source, such as dslreports.com
- A precise description of the problem you are encountering
- A list of the steps you have taken to verify a problem with our system
- Your phone number and the best time to call you, since this may be necessary in some cases
To begin a technical support dialog, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Before contacting us, please complete all diagnostic tests listed above. When you email us with your issue, our first step will be to verify our ability to access your manual from a computer that meets our minimum system requirements and is running the latest version of the browser you specify. If we are able to access the manual in this way, we will assume the problem is most likely related to the device you are using for access or your connection speed.
What is a “complete teardown and rebuild”?
From the very beginning, Haynes realized the best way to understand a vehicle and write 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 using special tools. While the number of parts removed varies from project to project, the teardown is always to the extent necessary to provide the new photographs and develop the new methods required for the manual.
I am having difficulty following the procedure in your book – what should I do?
Why does the Contents table send me to the wrong page in the manual?
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.
What are Ft-lbs. and In-lbs. in the torque tables?
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.
Is all the equipment on my vehicle covered in the manual?
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.
Does the manual cover the task I will be doing?
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. Check the Procedure List which follows for more details.
