Re: Repair Manual? (Rally_Junky)

for a 2004 you would need VADIS, just google it, you can probably buy it cheap on E-bay of download from a site like bit torrent for free

Vadis works, is a PITA to use.<p>Believe it or not alldata has a pretty good one avalible via subscription online. IIRC it's 30 dollars for 5 years and for that price you can change make/model one time.<p>Pretty good deal IMO.

Re: (firehawk618)

They don't make a Chilton & Haynes manual...The electronic versions like VADIS are the only option

Re: (Tiny)

I miss the days of the dirty, grease smitten pages of the chilton and Haynes repair manuals. The last thing i want to do if I encounter a problem while working on my car is run upstairs and start clicking away at VADIS.<p>That being said, I have VADIS. Got it off of ebay for $19 last year. It can be a bit of a pain and the instructions for certain procedures are a little vague, but I haven't had any problems. If you're a long-time shade-tree dude, you should be okay. Plus, you can always search the forums for a "better" way to do a repair.

Re: (Tiny)

VADIS is fine. I used it to:<p>Remove and replace my delaminating A-pillar trim on the driver's side.<br>Remove and replace tail gate trim panels, tail lights and rear spoiler LED strip when I got my tails tinted. <p>That's where I found out about cutting off the LED strip power connector and using a cord to fish the LED power cable through the spoiler.<p>Also has an illustrated parts breakdown w/part numbers. Perfect? No, but better than nothing. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
