No Repair Manual for '99+ Models?

Recommended Posts

Although I've done a fairly exhaustive internet search, I can't find a Chilton/Haynes repair manual for my '99 Legacy Outback. It seems they stopped making the "Do-It-Yourself" manuals for post '98 models. I can find a "Professional" repair manual for '99+ imports, but it covers more makes/models than I need. I'd like to find out recomended maintenance schedules/procedures for changing ATF, Diff oil, brakes, etcetera, plus more in-depth info about the car in general just so I can be better informed about a repair when I have a dealer do the work. Thanks!

I have a Haynes Legacy manual for 1990-1998 and the 1999 vehicle is virtuially identical. I even use it for my 2000 Forester for the engine/transmission. You can also buy (piece meal) sections of the factory service manual at about 50 dollars a section. You can download the complete factory manual for 20 bucks. The download time is limited and if you have dialup it's tough but, another option. ed

I found a 99 specific factory CD disc on ebay for about $20. It covers the entire subaru lineup for that year which includes both DOHC and SOHC engines and more info than you could imagine. I initially thought it wasn't that much, as the disc isn't even full! If you start printing it all, you end up with a foot high stack of paper in short order. and much more to go! Very nice to use.

or you can buy the paperback sections from any dealership

the manuals are divided into 7-8 sections, each having a different price

 

(electrical, suspension, chassis... etc)

 

entire set of manuals will run you near $300...

 

much easier to download and print off pages as you need them

Your note says that a complete factory manual is available for download for 20 bucks... I have a need for a manual and like the idea of an online manual... I have a 2000 Legacy GT with a MIL light 'on' indicating that an (P1133) Air Fuel Ratio Sensor Heater Circuit High Input (Bank 1 Sensor 1) is the problem... Would appreciate a link to where I can download the manual... Thanks
