Re: Haynes Manuals

I used to have Haynes manuals for all my previous cars, but since buying my Clio i haven't bothered with one i find them useless nowadays due to the internet and car forums etc.

Re: Haynes Manuals


I don't know if its because cars are more complex now, but I find them maybe not so well written, & the paper they're made from seems like recycled bog rolls.

Re: Haynes Manuals

I find the more recent Haynes manuals less detailed than years ago but I put it down to car manufacturers not wishing to share their knowledge, etc., I see that as a deliberate move to ensure we are less likely to do our own DIY repairs.

Knowledge is power and control , etc,...............

Yes the quality of paper is much poorer but that appies to many publications nowadays
