Find a particular section or page?
Go to the Start Here page and select the required chapter. Page
through the drawings until you find the section you need. All headings
relate to 16v model unless (20V) is stated.
If you find it hard to navigate, believe me it's no easier to navigate the
manuals paper version.
Print a page in full A4 size?
Right click on the page and select 'Save image as...' Then use you're
image editing software to print the page at any size you want. The
images can also be opened direct from the CD.
Get the two page wiring diagrams to line up?
As the originals were A3 and the scanner is A4, this was the quickest way
to scan them. To line them up, you need to print the two images and tape
them together Blue Peter style! Stick back plastic is an option.
Engine related maintenance
The manual does not cover engine components such as cylinder
heads, camshafts etc as these are considered to require engine removal
first. Fiat have a specific Engine service manual which was not
Pages that seem to be missing
Some of the pages are missing from the manual, tough!
20valve items that are not listed
All the later model cars are covered if the systems have changed. If
not, refer to the 16v section for the system you need. The clutch is the
only one that is only covered for the 16v turbo.
All the torque figures for the 20v
Only the engine was covered, the rest should be the same as the
The picture appear in the correct size on screen
All the pages were scanned full size, then reduced by 50%. This was
done to retain the best compromise between image quality and file size.
I tried with larger images (better quality) but it slowed the browser down
too much. This size was the best of many tried. (I spent a long
time on this!)
The quality of the photo images seem very good
The quality of the images is as good as the quality of the paper
version. They seem to have been photographs which were photocopied
resulting in poor quality.
The page always appear straight?
Some of the reproduction pages were like that.
The section load quickly?
All the images in each section are cached on your PC as you access them, if
you watch the lower left of the explorer window, you can see how many images
remain to be loaded. The section will work quickly once all the images
have been cached.
The torque figure in daNm?
This is Fiat's torque measurement and can be converted using a Java
calculator at http://www.norbar-usa.com/itc/
DaNm are deca Newton metres and are Nm's / 10
Haynes going to produce a manual for the coupe?
They say there is insufficient demand for the model and producing a manual
would not be viable.
