Welcome. At that price it would seem worth the risk. I paid the same for the Haynes manual, for my Mk 1, and it was sh!te.

I know this is for the mk3 Jazz, but for any mk1 & mk2 owners straying onto this thread, don't forget the online manuals

Welcome to the forum. The Haynes manual is as much use as a chocolate teapot. I bought it when I first got the Jazz and it is virtually useless.

That's harsh Jocko, the Haynes isn't completely useless. Maybe a cardboard teapot  :D

Or is it? What do you think?

Okay. A cardboard teapot it is then. Not like the old Haynes manuals. I took an Austin 1800 transmission to bits with the help of a Haynes manual. The Jazz manual keeps saying see a specialist/garage/dealer.
I suppose it is changing times. Cars were simpler back then, and the weekend mechanic was happy to strip and rebuild whatever required the work, on the garage/kitchen floor.

Haynes manuals seem to have become more generic over the years, obviously they cannot delve into the inner workings of every car now because the modern car is a complicated bit of kit,  and not sure how easy getting information is for them from foreign car makers.
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

Back in the day they would buy a car, strip and rebuild it, and document how they did it. They didn't have problems with foreign manufacturers back then. I have Volvo, FIAT, DAF, Peugeot and SAAB manuals in my collection. Never thrown one out!

They talk about Honda Fit, this could mean this is a manual for USDM or Asean models, with 1.5 or other engines.
You can read the official manual in Maris, but it's not cheap.

I ordered a manual 4 days ago and have been charged for it, but have not received it or even received an email to say it is on its way. My approaches to Manual4You have fallen on deaf ears. Beginning to wonder if it is a bit of a scam!

Contacted their London Facebook site and I was told I would have email link within 50 minutes. That was five and a half hours ago. It's a scam. Don't buy a manual from Manual4You.

Finally got a download of the manual, after threatening to go on the various motoring forums I frequent and dishing the dirt.
Huge sections of it appear to be for the 1.5 (as suggested earlier).
I have the necessary .zip file, for the Mk 1, if anyone wants to PM me with any questions(!).
