DIY for Discos
on 12 March 2004
My dad is a firm believer in Haynes Manuals and has bought one for every car he has owned. (at least while I lived at home) He even recounts a story where he took his car to a garage to get it repaired and they actually looked in the Haynes Manual he'd left in the back of the car to see what they needed to do!
So naturally when I started owning cars, I followed in his footsteps and bought a Haynes manual. It gives you the essential information on how to pull apart your car and put it back together. For the cost of owning a manual I have saved myself a fortune in time and money visiting a garage to fix the little things that can and do go wrong over time. (like having the door to the boot jam closed)
If it only saves you one trip to a garage then it will have paid for itself. My advice is no matter what car you have, buy the related Haynes manual and keep it in the car as you just can't afford not to.
