Maintenance Manual
« on: March 21, 2007, 08:23:35 AM »
For most other cars i've owned I typically buy a Haynes manual for those small DIY jobs, I see Haynes don't actually produce a manual for the Mazda 3, is anyone aware of any other maintenance manual available? no doubt Mazda make one but it is sure to be much more expensive.

I normally have a go at doing relatively simple jobs myself before rushing to the garage, like changing brakes etc, not something I do every day so useful to have some instructions to follow which which aren't covered in the user manual.

How much was the CD and where did you get it?
