Is there a Haynes or Chilton manual out for the Vibe yet??

Postby Cue-Ball » Mon Jun 12, 2006 1:33 am

Can't seem to find anything but the factory manuals and at $100+ I need a cheaper solution.

Anyone know of anything?

Damn how are you guys working on them?

Mine has been under warranty until now so I never had to worry about it.

I have to do the brakes in the front end this coming weekend and would like to know the torque specs and what not.

Thanks.

There is a book i think it might be from toyota...but otherwise the manual for the car might actually have the torq specs. Theres guides on this site in the DIY section that usually inform on what your looking to do.

I think you can get the factory manual on CD from E-bay pretty cheap - or maybe someone on the site can make you an "archive copy" of theirs.

I think my base vibe lug nuts were 75..so it might depend on which car/rims you have.

I know that this is an old thread but I could not find it out elsewhere.

The boss just picked this up for me and wanted to pass on the information.

Let us know how it is. I know the previous editions didn't include the GT which is why I didn't buy one sooner

I'm not sure this one will include the GT. I don't have a GT, but I will check when I get it and see.
