E-TEC workshop manual

Is there anywhere in UK (or indeed online) who can supply either a hard copy or downloadable/PDF version of the proper manufacturers workshop manual for a 2011 model E-TEC 150? Can you buy it from dealers?

Nothing serious, I just want to change the water pump impeller some time next winter, and I'm aware that somewhere on Youtube there is a video of that operation, but it got me thinking that I should get hold of a WSM before I need it, rather than scrabbling round looking for one when I need it.

No dealers in this country of course, so that's why - it's all DIY

I'm aware of the E-TEC owners group but getting stuff here from the States can be a problem and a quick search on that group didn't provide an obvious download source. Barnacle Bill does seem to supply paper copies in the States (though no prices).

Hi Stephen hope all is well with now that summers here!! You will get some manuals on Amazon and maybe this might help Free Manuals & Troubleshooting Add-on

Sorry dont have a lot of time to do big search but it might help.
Cheers

I'll scan the relevant pages & email them to you if you like. I got a WSM from my usual contact but he was a bit cagey about selling me one. Let me know if you want me to enquire for you.

I have the 150 workshop manual and I have a scanner

Oops Just seen Pikey is already on the case.
