5.0 out of 5 stars nostalgia!!!!!
Chose this Rating because it's a Haynes. Messing with cars on a Sunday afternoon, with a Cup of tea resting on the air filter cover.

Just changed-out the Timing-belt on the old Golf, and saved a couple of hundered euros. I even quite enjoyed doing it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for mechanics
Don't expect this book to provide many answers.
If you have an old Haynes manual it will probably be as much use to you as the general fault finding and repair proceedures are the same for most cars.
This manual is very much only for routine servicing. There are very few technical diagrams or useful photographs. There are some useful wiring diagrams but...

Don't expect this book to provide many answers.
If you have an old Haynes manual it will probably be as much use to you as the general fault finding and repair proceedures are the same for most cars.
This manual is very much only for routine servicing. There are very few technical diagrams or useful photographs. There are some useful wiring diagrams but virtually nothing on the gearbox. It seems to assume that anything beyond simple servicing is now a garage job.

OK if you really can't find anything else - this could not have been written in a more unhelpful way, with many irritating references to previous chapters, mysterious engines codes, and a rather shallow overall technical depth. Not for serious DIY-ers, except as a reference for fasteners torques, service limits on tolerances etc.

1.0 out of 5 stars Virtually useless., 4 Jun 2009
This review is from: VW Golf and Vento Service and Repair Manual: Petrol and Diesel 1992 to 1998 (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Hardcover)
This manual does not even contain the most basic layout for the ignition system. It simply fobs the user off with the dreaded "take it to your local VAG dealer". If we are to "take it to our local VAG dealer", we cannot afford the price of this waste of shelf space. I have, however, found an alternative use for the manual. It involves a hook in the outside toilet.

I think each seller should be obliged to inform via amazon exactly how used the book actually is oily fingerprints were a bit off putting.
That being said it serves it's purpose as a reference guide for a mrk 3 golf.
The delivery was prompt however the book was covered in dirt I would have appreciated a quick wipe over with a cloth before packaging as package was opened in a home not a garage.

This review is from: VW Golf and Vento Service and Repair Manual: Petrol and Diesel 1992 to 1998 (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Hardcover)
As per usual another great Haynes with clear detailed photo and step by steps with difficulty levels for each task. How else you gonna learn but to get under the bonnet or on ya back under the sump eh?

Triple AAA book, sold at a good price by a fast seller. Cant ask more.
