    Is there a Haynes Manual for the Leon? I've checked Halfords several times to no joy!

    No. Golf Mk4 / Bora is the nearest and very useful. :)

    Buggar! I wonder why they haven't made one - after all they've even done one on sex so why not the Leon! Hmphh!

    Thank you :)!!

    Yeah, I tried to hunt one down as well, no luck.

    The Mk4 Golf one is quite good... even better is the SEAT, Workshop manual, on CD. To say it is detailed is an understatement...

    Have a search on ebay....

    Last time I looked on the Haynes site the Leon was on the shortlist, no idea how long they take to decide whether to do one.

    Thinks so, but me computer won't allow certain things to work (normally everything I try to install).
    I'll try over the week to install.

    Hi mate,

    Haven't got vista, but the anti virus we've got on won't always allow us to install/run programmes.

    I'll have to try the computer at work.

    actually I found the A3 is the closest match for a manual. I may have one knocking about somewhere if anyone wants it.

    well, since these cars are a mix of both...

    If you find one manual... Great...

    If you find both... PERFECT.

    Hope it's OK for me to resurrect this thread rather than start a new one. There are various electronic manuals on Ebay. Can anyone recommend one that works OK? Is there one that will operate from CD/DVD without loading onto my hard disc? Other than that, does one of the AUDI/Golf Haynes manuals cover a rear brake overhaul that is applicable to a Leon Cupra R?
