When quoting such a specific price, from a source with numerous listings, a link would be awfully helpful 🤣

I wouldn't bother...  You can find much better guides for anything you need on Youtube nowadays...for free!

The last Haynes I bought was the Mk2 Focus one (but mines blue, they must have released another for facelift?) and it was crap tbh.  They suggest every job requires 12 other things removing for access and suggest that anything requiring diagnostics is entrusted to a dealer.  The only thing a modern Haynes is good for is torque figures, but even those can generally be found online, or by asking on here.  And they're not always correct either!

 

Having said all that, I've found the ideal Haynes for you @StephenFord

In the 70s, I use to buy a magazine called, 'Street Machine' (now long defunct), but in the 90s, yes, I was a 'Max Power' guy LOL - you know me so well 😂

Here's a link but there are others, just search on ebay or elsewhere, I was just intending to show that you haven't missed out, there's better deals than that £17.99 anyway

That's OK buddy, I know how to use Ebay having been on it now for 20 years. I was just being childish in showing your quote of £10.50 was non existent LOL

The 'modern' or more recent Haynes manuals are not what they used to be, not half as informative and as comprehensive as they were, they do have another use though, ideal for putting under the leg of a wonky dining table!

Saying that though, in all seriousness, I managed to find a new one for my MK1 Focus, I say managed as this one seems quite rare, I searched absolutely everywhere for nearly 2 years before I actually found one. I no longer have the car so no longer need the manual, it covers the MK1 Focus 2001 to 2004. (51 to 54 plate).

For what its worth, I just bagged a Vauxhell one for a friend from Halfords as they price match ECP, ECP happens to have loads of the Haynes gear and the SUN50 code they had on at the weekend worked for the manuals in my basket and took themdown to £10.02 each- I was next door to Halfords at the time so popped in and had a word, showed them the forum card as well to see if it helped but the lad just said yeah we can do that and bipped it in for a tenner.

Showed him this which he glossed over quite quickly, which I really don't blame him for..

 

 

I'm now looking to get the missus one now I think.. 🙃
