Nope no manuals at all. I generally just get the guys at the dealership to print out the page or 2 from their computer when i pickup the parts. This car seems simple enough once you find the dipstick/airfilter, but maybe i should get one of the manuals anyways. I have been looking around and have had no luck however finding a dealership that can sell me only the disk. Since its so easy to access i would rather just replace the disk then the whole unit. Infact nobody seems to be able to get orginal parts anymore. Are there aftermarket clutches that people might suggest as cheap reliable replacements?
