Here at Haynes we are big believers in routine preventative maintenance, and having the manual and all the tools you need before you need them. But we also know that sometimes life doesn't follow the plan we make, and you end up covered in dripping warm oil, not knowing how to fix a suddenly undriveable car or truck before you've been able to buy one of our legendary books.
So how can you get your hands on a Haynes manual and haul yourself out of this mess?
Download an online manual
The information you need from your Haynes manual is available in an expanded online version. Most manuals we have released in the past 20 years come in both traditional book format and a digital online version that can be accessed on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, from anywhere with an internet connection. Our online selection even includes motorcycles, ATVs, and marine books, available via Haynes.com.
You can buy access to the online manual in just minutes over your phone, and once purchased, you get to keep your manual for as long as you need it. Almost all of the online manuals have color pictures, and a quick search function that gets you exactly the procedure you need in seconds. If you prefer, you can even print out the pages you need and take them to the garage with you so your greasy fingers stay off your device.
If the worst happens and you find yourself in over your head and can't figure out how to put that thing you took apart pack together without extra pieces, our manuals are online even at 2am on a Sunday.
Visit your local auto parts store
Most major chain auto parts stores carry more than 100 of our most popular titles in stock, which together cover hundreds of millions of the cars, trucks, SUVs and vans out on the road today. They reorder and we ship to them practically every day, so their inventories are almost always stocked and current. When that easy weekend fix or upgrade goes south, you'll find our manuals stocked at AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, Canadian Tire, O'Reilly, Pep Boys, and many Parts Plus and NAPA stores. Plus, your local independent auto parts store probably has some of our most popular titles in stock as well.
We can't tell you what is in stock at which dealer, but we can help you find your nearest stocker of our books. Just go to our dealer locator and enter your zip code.
