So I recently read a thread about downloading factory pdf files from the subaru website. 34 bucks for 72 hours of access. Does anyone know that if I pay this 34 dollars, will I be able to download the whole manual and then just keep it on my computer. Has anyone allready done this and could i get you to email me some of the pages so i can see if they are anygood.

 

thanks

I did that a couple years ago and it worked fine. I don't know if they have changed the game rules since then or not. The PDFs are good, but the problem is in the indexing. Although you can always do a computer search to find what you are looking for. Be prepared to invest a few hours in file naming and creating the directory structure. I'll see if I can send you a sample...

You're limited to downloading 20 files per hour. It's a major pain, and will take a huge amount of your time to download the files and organize them.

 

I gave in and bought the manual on CD for $200 from the same site. My time is worth more than the $166 difference.

When I did it, it was about 700 files, 75 folders, 60 megs. So that's what, 35 hours now? YUCK.

 

The only way that would work is if you were doing it at work, on overtime.

My thoughts exactly. Even at $200, I saved more than that amount by doing one repair job myself vs. taking it to a shop. I buy the FSM for every car I own, it's always worth the cost.
