I'm still downloading stuff, I'll look at what I got later on. Now I got all the service data sheets for both the corolla and celica.
But I want to grab everything I can from both cars since there are references to the engine and transmision on the Corolla manuals (RM925E) and others supplementals.

Also I'm going to grab all the electrical documents, anyway it's going to take me a while. But the 3 I got 1st refer to the 2ZZGE as well as the 1ZZFE and the 3ZZFE as well as the 4ZZFE in some other documents, anyway it's the right ones but I haven't look inside the documents much because I'll be busy

I think I have more than i'll ever need.

It's not too bad to get the three documents, once you pay for access you'll have to open the browsing tree and right click to save as each pdf section.

Some are html links to a specific page, those you have to display and then save the acrobat document.

Note that on acrobat sometimes it doesn't allow you to create a directory so prepare the folders where you'll put all the documents for that manual at. ie RM733E for all the RM733E document files.

Also if you have microsoft word or any other capable document editor you can expan the manual browsing tree one by one and once they are all open you can select all (right click on that pane) then control-c to copy to the buffer and then you can paste that to word, retaining the hyperlinks.

Save the file as html and edit all the references to the web site so that they reference to your disk.

For people that don't like computers I'll recomend you buy the print ones, this was a real PITA to do.

I had the same problem. Check your spam or bulk mail inbox, it's probably there. My spam filter caught it as the reply to me did not have a LotusUSA domain; it was sent from a [email protected] address with the subject line "Membership Information".

Miguel,

Have you check to make sure that the Toyota manuals are in fact the correct ones for our Elise? If so, I may have to go get them also...

Looks like I'll try downloading the manuals as well. Not sure if one of the automatic downloaders will work besides wget.exe, but am going to try flashget (http://www.amazesoft.com/).

No Spam filters active. That's the same thing Lotus tried to blame it on. There's something wrong with their program. I know I shouldn't have used that damn Paypal.

Seems like the right ones, I'm posting html files of the indices so you can take a peak.

I modified the Lotus html to link to these for the engine, supplement and transmission.

I have each of these files and image support folder on their own folder, i.e.
Toyota
RM733E
RM929E
RM930E
I also got several service and miscelaneous ones for the Celica and Corolla, didn't dowload the whole thing but anything related to the engine, transmission, intake, exhaust, ecu (even if it's different), electrical wiring, engine mount stuff, but got tired after a while because it was too much work.

I have them located under a toyota folder under the lotus service manual folder.

Toyota
SDSCelica
SDS418E
SDS438E
SDS457E
SDS466E
SDS477E
SDSCorolla
EWD480E
EWD485E
RM925E
SDS453E
SDS455E
SDS457E
SDS466E
SDS477E
I didn't dowload these last ones fully other than the SDS's, I tried to get as much as RM925E as I could.

Like I said before, it's a lot of work (time consuming) so better do it on a weekend or something like that, if you are just after the 3 manuals I'll say one hour will do. But if you are like me, you'll want more and more

good news is that if you forget to download the indices for those three manuals you'll have them from my zip file

Btw the only way to make sure they are the actual ones if for someone that has them to take a peak at the indices....

Michael?????

Thanks Miguel,

I'm going to have to try downloading the files. But I'll wait for a weekend when I'm not going to be busy, since I'll probably get everything I can (you can never have too many tools or manuals ).

Two quick notes Tim,

once you open the view document, you'll have to open each branch of the navigation tree on the left, right click and save as, some of them you actually have to press them and use the acrobat save icon. (electrical I believe) there is another thread where I posted what I did.

http://www.elisetalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13840

I wont be on my computer during the weekend so I hope you have good luck with the download, pm me if you want my cell # in case you get stuck.

Edit: oops I forgot the 2nd note, your login times out, you probably have to re-login for other documents, I had to do that several times.

Maybe that thread should be sticky as well or it can be merged but the content is too deep in this thread and might get missed.

Server is up running Linux but only open port is SSH. Web server is not running. I suspect the webmaster is not monitoring the site; probably not a Lotus employee. Server appears to be housed at an SBC server farm. Probably need to get someone at Lotus USA to notice.
