If I read this book, can I repair my own car and save money? Only if you already know how to do lots of the stuff in this book. The Haynes Repair Manual is sort of a blend between a mechanic’s resource and an owner’s manual. It’s not the pg behemoth repair book you’ll find on dusty shelves in most mechanic’s garages, but it’s not useless by any means.

If you have basic car knowledge, it’s good to own this to learn more about your car. If you have more advanced knowledge, you might want it to do some of your own work. Pages can stand a bit of abuse getting knocked about the garage. Helpful photos of parts in different states of disrepair for easy analysis. Troubleshooting guide in the beginning is an invaluable resource for staving off that “What the hell is happening” feeling when something first starts to go wrong. I really wanted a quick resource for those since usually you can only see the generic ones.


I’ve had Haynes manuals for different cars over the years, most of them very good. This is probably the worst one I’ve ever had. There are certain repairs I’ve tried to do using this manual, but some sections of it are very vague. For example, to change the manual transmission fluid, they didn’t show any sort of picture or diagram where the drain plugs were located. For bleeding the clutch slave cylinder, they didn’t show where it was located it’s buried and hard to find.

I changed the timing belt, but it was very poor at describing how to get to the belt and how to properly tension the new belt. There are three major problems, one for owners of or earlier models, and two more general.

On the positive side, it’s got lots of photos illustrating how to dismantle things–which can be hugely useful with complex interior body panels, which is what I was working on. It also covers more or less everything you could want to know, from how to replace the speakers to how to overhaul the engine. Major problem 1, however, is that nearly all the illustrations are for model year or later, which has substantial changes, particularly in the interior.

Which means that you’re stuck with instructions like “Remove the four screws and six retaining clips.

Honestly, there should have been two separate books for ”03 Second Generation and ”08 Third Generationexcept us 2nd gen owners are the ones who got shafted. Major problem 2 is that the book repeatedly refers you back to a different section for instructions but doesn’t tell you what page in that section.

For example, if you want to remove the radiator, you need to remove the splash manuaal, but at that point it just says exact quote ” see Chapter 2. The actual instructions are buried in 2B “Engine Overhaul”under the engine removal section, step 20 although there is actually an illustration accompanying that.

Things like this are all over the place, particularly in the interior electrical chapter, which repeatedly refers you to unspecific sections in the previous chapter, on interior trim. Major problem 3 is that the index borders on useless–seven pages long and very general. If you want very specific instructions for some particular part–say, how to remove that splash guard because it’s broken and you want to replace it–it’s not listed in the index.

You just have to guess at what larger part it’s related to and look for that in my case, I guessed radiator, which was wrong–as above, that just sent me to somewhere in chapter 2. I’ve only owned a couple of other repair manuals, but this one is a huge step below them, and while I’ll stop short of calling it useless for 2nd Generation TL owners, but it’s hugely frustrating and just barely helpful.


Oh, and you know what’d be nice? I’ve been spoiled by iFixIt’s take apart instructions, where they tell you exactly what screw goes exactly where, with meticulous photographs. If you’re looking at this, then you probably already know exactly what this is.

Haynes manual are always handy for DYI repairs although they sometimes cover too many models and variations in one book causing confusion. I have a TLS and although it clearly states that it applies to my car, very few images show my car. What ought to be an easy procedure, changing the cabin air filters have nothing to do with the writing or photos in the manual.

I have no idea if there is a good manual for my car. Got this as a gift for my brother who owns this car. Haynes manuals are always so well written. It could be a little more detailed, but it gives you good reference points along the way.

If you’re even a little mechanically inclined, this manual is all you need. I had to refer to this repair manual many times. See all 23 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
