esprit888 Also, if anyone is interested in a full set for authenticity, i have an 88 Esprit warranty booklet, very slight damage at the top, $30.

Esprit88 What’s you’ve provided seems to match the roof style clips on my Esprit—thanks for clarifying!

Not sure if I scanned the addendum for the older style roof clamps for the removable top. If they donít match let me know and Iíll scan the page if I can find it.

Good luck.

BWAHAHA! I just realized I have my original driver hand book after my late 88 was totalled.

Iíll sell it for $200 with the as new binder as well as the addendums.

Just kidding. I may sell it but see whatís a more realistic price. After seeing original tool kits go for $500, I may be sitting on a gold mine.

(FYI. Everything above is tongue-in-cheek)

sleekgt Sorry for delay - Photobucket.com cancelled my free account (long story) and I had to search through 16TB of drives to find the scanned photos.
PM me your email address and I will send you a link to download a zip file.

Esprit88 Thanks, Eddie. I responded to this a few days ago but it appears to have not shown up. I had asked if you needed alternate contact info, or if you could post the link here. Thanks in advance!

Esprit88 Great, I'm sure there are differences here and there, but the general location of things should be the same. Chargercooler could be the biggest difference if yours has one.

I'm new to the forum--can one send private messages? I'd give my email for to use in sending a link to the document, but I'd rather not post it publicly. Thanks for your help.

sleekgt I have a digital copy online from my late 88. Will send link to photobucket.com or can zip and have you download from Google drive.

'88 Esprit owners manual

Just acquired an '88 Esprit Turbo. Seller didn't get an owner's manual from the previous owner, and my searches for one online haven't yielded anything. I do have the 1,000+ page service manual, which is an incredible resource, but I was hoping there might be a "quick start" guide. Things like location of the dipstick, radiator cap, etc. are hard to find in the service manual.
