Grande Punto Haynes Manual

Does anyone know how long before this is likely to be out?

Re: Grande Punto Haynes Manual

I have purchased these from him before the only problem I had was he shipped me a set of Italian manuals in error, I exchanged them for English manual no problems.

My only criticism of the factory manual is they are very disjointed to use.

I had one for my last car mate, it was good but not as good as a manual, so go for it until the likes of Haynes get sorted, not like the GP is a small volume car after all is it!

Re: Grande Punto Haynes Manual

Got one of these, lots of information in it, but as said before akward to use, but I have lost many an hour reading how all my car works using it. It is the genuine dealer manual i believe, but an illegal copy of it. I think you can get a genuine from Fiat somewhere online for 70 or 80 euros.

Re: Grande Punto Haynes Manual

I bet it will be another 18 months before they bring one out if they have just brought out the MK2 Punto manual!!

But the 2b manual if you have a 1.2 most of the running gear is the same.

Re: Grande Punto Haynes Manual

I rang Haynes about 3 months ago and was told "there are no plans to release a manual for this vehicle in the near future". So i got a genuine Fiat one on disc. Im expecting one to come out when the series 1 cars are out of warranty

Re: Grande Punto Haynes Manual

I've got a copy, its really good, and tells you how to take apart and/or put the whole car back together, as well as fault finding and diagnostic walkthroughs, a full service guide, i would imagine they have this on a laptop next to the car in the dealer garages while doing jobs,

anyways anyone wants a copy PM me
