There's over 260 pages in the owners manual, to photo copy each page I'll charge you 30 pence a page including post and packing.
Although you may prefer the genuine thing for under £20 on Ebay [YES]

Bear in mind also because it's a fairly small book with a fairly stiff spine the pages won't photocopy very well towards the centre (where they join) and are likely to be blurry.

Considering that they contain vehicle specific safety and important user information, it really astounds me that owner manuals aren't available as PDF downloads F.O.C from Ford, especially as they won't even sell you a new paper manual for older Ford vehicles any more..... bloody ridiculous.

By the same token wouldn't it be simpler if previous owners sold the car with it's original owners manual/pack instead of hiding it away in a draw somewhere to be found a decade later when the car has been sold on minus the manual.

Absolutely Chris, trouble is you can't rely on/trust people to think about stuff like that, some owners take next to no care of their vehicles and are completely apathetical about that kind of stuff, personally I think it should be made an MOT failure if the handbook and tools are not present. But at the same time, as it's not exactly restricted info and they don't produce hardcopies anymore I think it's crap that Ford don't have an online copy viewable/ downloadable by the public- what if the original gets so dog eared or damaged as to be unreadable?
