My CD of the workshop manual for the VE (2008-11) arrived today ($12 from ebay). So I have two questions for everyone.

Question 1- Who'd like one and if there's enough interest from people...

Question 2- How the hell do I make available to anyone here who wants a Winrar file with these PDF's on it?

A torrent would be the easiest I guess, but I don't know how to make one :(

Sorry to be a techno doofus, but if anyone wants a copy and wants to explain how I can make it available, let me know.

It's 188MB btw

online file storage just upload it to a place like rapidshare fileshare or mediafire etc etc. Then anyone can download it at a decent speed. throw the link up on here for everyone to enjoy :)

^ +1 That would be the easiest and simplest way to do it. Just zip them together and upload

Why don't SC make a Sticky of PDF's workshop manuals for each Model (VB-E) in the Mech Section...?

That's a bloody good idea

Copyright law might be an issue, depending on who owns the copyright for the material in the PDF. If the material in the PDF itself is copyright free and people are just making money selling it on ebay the way people sell other free software on ebay then I guess SC could do it.

the way people sell other free software


People selling free stuff...? That's Gold..!!

Perhaps we could rename it - shareware...

I'm going to post the link in Mech in case people who want it don't know it's in general. In fact, I'm going to make it my mission to find as many manuals as I can and post links to them in the mech section.

They should all be available to everyone for free in PDF format imo.

Would love to have a vn vp gm workshop manual on pdf etc, but i dont even think there is a pc version of it around. I have the gm vr vs one not bad bit of gear except the electrical drawings part is missing. the vt vx genuine one floating around the net is even beter again. Maybe this should be a sticky with all the manuals in the 1st post ???

The link is good. The grey download box on the bottom right? Firewall maybe?

Thanks mate

But just an observation

This only includes non SIDI version of V6 !

monkeyboy

I haven't had a good look at it yet to be honest. I mostly got it to see how to remove door trims for an install without breaking every clip in sight.

I'm guessing the sidi changes would be pretty minor though...but that's just an assumption.

I am new to this world of forums and stuff and would like to know
We're all these manuals are hiding and how do I get to them. And also I would give my first born for a vs workshop manual that also covers clubsports.

I will check back every day.

Please help me Monkey Boy.

I couldn't find a free one for you to download...but 15 bucks is pretty cheap for all the info you get on this

Hope that helps.

AS far as I can tell, there isn't a VE manual in book form...which seems weird. Even the digital ones are hard to come by.

holden went to all online no hard copy as of introduction of ve, which has stopped alot of the copying of holden sip cd etc,

there is a really great copy of sip out there, last one produced i believe which covers vt-vz, colorado, and few other models inc hsv, its about 4g worth, but is defently worth it.
