Great thanks for that Chris we certainly need one. I will put it with my collection of Fords Zephyr, Cortina, Escort, Sierra, Mondeo, Mk 1 and 2 Galaxy. Not that I know where they are.

I have emailed Haynes still awaiting reply
On another forum I heard Halfords had the book in stock although I cannot confirm this.

The reply I received from Haynes Manuals

Hi Chris

This manual has been temporarily withdrawn due to a technical error.

Once rectified it will be available again.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Can only assume there must be some mistakes with the issue.

Perhaps the error was serious enough to potentially cause injury to somebody carrying out a procedure and Haynes didn't want a lawsuit on their hands?!

rear brake torque setting being incorrect apparently,
if so why wasnt that double/triple checked then?

I managed to pick a manual up from a nearby Halfords yesterday (I assume my copy still has the erroneous torque settings?) - it's actually not too bad, compared to some other recent (very poor) Haynes manuals I've seen.
