Haynes Vectra-C Workshop Manual
on 25 February 2010
I bought this workshop manual a month back before i tackled a few small car jobs. I found it useful as a guideline but found the black and white photos accompanying the text to lack some clarity of detail. The other problem with these manuals is they do not carry a list of tools which you require to complete a task....which necessitated a visit to my local autofactors for some tooling i later realised was needed. Why Haynes do you not provide a list of tools required for specific tasks?
The other snag with this manual is the Vectra was facelifted in late 2005 and the facelifted car is conveniently covered by a newer manual which is not available yet!!!(supposedly January 2010?) Why can't we download a supplement for this updated manual from the Haynes Website after paying for the only available manual at the time?
Overall not a bad guideline, but what other options are available to the DIY car repairer?
