Anyone have any ideas on how to get some good manuals for a 1990 Legacy ? I have Chiltons, but I'm not satisfied with the quality or quantity of information presented.

Has anyone purchased the CD's from Ebay ? If so, what do you think about them ? Here's a link if you're not familiar with them.


If anyone is interested in a set of sheets for the 90-94 Legacy from a collision repair book, send me an email and I'll give you my address. You can send a self addressed, stamped envelope and I'll send you a copy. The sheets have part numbers, prices, and repair time estimates for the most common replacement parts. I guess the most valuable info is the part numbers and diagrams.

I have purchased the CD from eBay. The terminology used is really too advanced for shadetrees like myself and has very few pictures.

Josh (Legacy777) has a 90-94 Legacy parts list on his site, which I frequent. He also has some FSM's for the BC-BF Legacies as well. He finds them more helpful than Haynes or Chilton, but they are still not a Subaru Bible.

My personal opinion is that such manuals should only be used to supplement basic car knowledge. If you have absolutely no clue how to do it, definitely do not attempt to do it with these manuals as your ONLY guide. It is guaranteed that you will screw something up. I can make such a guarantee from experience <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/embarassed.gif ALT=":o">
