Common Questions
Q: What is this site about?
A: This site is about Haynes and its automobile and motorcycle repair manuals.

We hope you will learn about our wide assortment of books on this site and then visit your local auto parts retailer to make your purchase (or order your specific book from the counter represenative if its not in stock).

Haynes manuals are here to help you save money when you do it yourself and feel good about the job you did!!


Q: Where do I go to find a Haynes manual for my vehicle?
A: We've made it easy to search for a manual for your specific vehicle on the new Haynes site. You will find a "Vehicle Search" area on the top part of the site pages where you can simply enter your vehicle "Year", the "Make" and "Model" to find out if we have a specific book for your needs.


Q: Why can't I find a manual for my vehicle?
A: Two possible reasons: either it's too new, or the model range doesn't have enough vehicles. We don't normally produce manuals for vehicles less than two years old. And we can't consider doing a manual until there are enough vehicles on the road for us to cover the costs of developing one of our books(including the complete teardown and rebuild costs that we do before every book, and the time/ money to author and print the books).


Q: How long does it take to produce a Haynes manual?
A: From the time a vehicle arrives in our workshop to the time the manual is available is about 5 months. Writing a manual takes a team of technical authors roughly 3 months working with our Haynes mechanic during the vehicle teardown and rebuild, followed by production and printing prior to distribution to retail locations.


Q: Do you publish your manuals in Electronic format?
A: Using a hardcopy, printed manual while working on a vehicle remains a choice that many people prefer.

However, Haynes now offers Manuals Online! Manuals Online are an electronic version of our iconic Haynes Manual. Haynes has converted the top 120+ selling Automotive manuals and 50+ Motorcycle manuals to electronic format. These are now available from www.haynes.com. Just go to the Manuals Online section of the site or cut and paste this link: www.haynes.com/mole. Haynes will add further coverage as the conversion process continues.

NOTE: Haynes New Manuals Online is offered to US and Canadian customers only. And, all electronic sales on the www.haynes.com site are FINAL.

There is a limit to printing out pages from a Manuals Online title. The limit is 50 pages in a 6 month timeframe and 6 pages in a week. Most electronic repair manuals sold on the market do not allow any printing. But, Haynes recognizes there are times when you need to print out a page and bring it with you to your vehicle during a messy repair.


Haynes traditional printed product line will continue to be marketed aggressivley with an ongoing program of updates and new titles.

Haynes Manuals Online bring an extra dimension to the Haynes Group that will allow us to satisfy customers whether they prefer Print or Electronic delivery.

To learn about the System Requirements for Haynes Manuals Online and for Troubleshooting Steps (including how to ask for help from Haynes), please follow this link for more information.


Q: Do you sell wiring diagrams separately?
A: No. Every Haynes manual includes a set of wiring diagrams covering the most frequently required circuits. If, after buying a manual, you find that it does not contain the diagram you need, contact Haynes technical support and we will try to help.


Technical Questions
Q: What are the System Requirements for Manuals Online and how do I Troubleshoot problems?
A: To learn about the System Requirements for Haynes Manuals Online and for Troubleshooting Steps (including how to ask for help from Haynes), please follow this link for more information.


Q: What is a “complete teardown and rebuild”?
A: From the very beginning, Haynes realized the best way to understand a vehicle and write repair procedures was to bring the vehicle into our workshop and actually take it apart – the way you would at home. To do this, we have purchased and disassembled countless vehicles – more than one for every book published. This process allows us to verify the procedures we put into the manual and provide the reader with hundreds of photographs. With mechanics and authors working together on each project, we discover new, simpler methods and work-arounds to avoid using special tools. While the number of parts removed varies from project to project, the teardown is always to the extent necessary to provide the new photographs and develop the new methods required for the manual.


Q: I am having difficulty following the procedure in your book – what should I do?
A: Send us an email: research@haynes.com. We attempt to answer all emails by the next business day. Please let us help you if you’re at all uncertain about what you’re doing.


Q: Why does the Contents table send me to the wrong page in the manual?
A: All Haynes repair manuals have numbered Sections within each Chapter. The Contents refers to these Section numbers, NOT the page numbers. So Section 5 might be on Page 3.


Q: What are Ft-lbs. and In-lbs. in the torque tables?
A: When it is necessary to specify a torque value for a particular fastener, Haynes will provide it in either foot-pounds (ft-lbs.) or inch-pounds (in-lbs.). One foot-pound of torque is equivalent to 12 inch-pounds of torque. Torque values below approximately 15 ft-lbs. are expressed in inch-pounds, since most foot-pound torque wrenches are not accurate at these smaller values.


Q: Is all the equipment on my vehicle covered in the manual?
A: In most manuals, Haynes covers all popular sub-models, engine options and equipment installations. For example, a manual on a Ford Mustang would cover six-cylinder and V8 models, the GT sub-model, manual and automatic transmission and accessories such as ABS and air conditioning. However, sub-models with very limited production, such as an SVT Cobra, may not be included. Any exclusions will be specifically listed in the manual description.


Q: Does the manual cover the task I will be doing?
A: Haynes covers procedures a typical do-it-yourselfer is likely to perform at home, such as maintenance, tune-up and removal/installation of components. When special equipment and knowledge is required, such as with a wheel alignment or a transmission overhaul, the procedure may not be included. Check the Procedure List which follows for more details.
