Use this link: http://lotustechinfo.com/subscriber_new.aspTitle says it all. I can find a few people torrenting old manuals, but I really need a factory service manual for my 2006 Elise. =/ Where does one get these things?
The Factory Manual that you download from LCU's web site includes everything EXCEPT the engine and Transmission internals (they are Toyota Manuals). It covers all systems of the car, includes the wiring diagrams, emission information (OBD-II codes and their causes/fixes), etc.I am also looking for a manual, if I pay the $25, does it include everything? Or are there supplemental materials that I will need to get from another source. I have seen many manuals in parts, and they are incomplete. Is that the case for this download?
Although the various bootleg manuals on the internet are interesting to check out, they are always (at least the ones I've checked) for earlier S1 Elises with the Rover engine. Things are similar, so they are interesting to check out for those interested in the Elise, but you should have the correct one for doing work on the car.Title says it all.

See Tim's 4th paragraph in post 13 below. He said it in a much nicer way .im not saying anyone should do this *cough* but couldnt someone buy it and put it on rapidshare? people could send a dollar or two to that person? again not saying this should be done *cough* just curious.
Yea, I didn't have the exact manual number specified by Lotus - that would actually be the book as far as I know.no problem accessing the comparable celica GT repair manual (in a bajillion tiny snippets), i couldn't find the specific manuals referenced on lotustechinfo...i presume that the basic information is the same, but does the toyota website make available the 'non-celica' engine/supplement/transmission books used for our cars?..
Your dealer, or any dealer, can obtain a hard copy for you. I can't remember how much it was but 2 years ago I went -eek- then got the download. You can always print out the PDFs and bind them for a hard copy also.Where can we get the hardcopies for the Elise?
I dunno I'm a hardcopy manual person and collect them for all my current cars, past cars, and even cars I've never owned but frequently work on. (I have a pretty decent collection)
So I rather not have a PDF but a physical book.
Is that possible and if so where do I find this? I realize it should be in the hundreds of dollars and that's fine.
