    Be surprised. There's not even one for the VZ and they've been around for 5 years.

    As alien says is available as a spare part from Holden, last price I had was $700.00 on DVD about 2 years ago may be cheaper now seeing as though they have been out for a while.

    I can hardly wait until they bring one out... I still have so many questions about this car.

    When I had my VX and the workshop manual for that it was great being able to fix some things myself.

    You can subscribe to get access to the service manuals, just go here: https://www.acdelcotds.com/acdelco/action/home
    Subscribe as a new user and get the 3 day access for $20. You will then have access to pretty much everything on the VE as well as other models, you can even print whatever you find.

    When I did it, I printed them off as PDF files.

    ---

    Once you've created an account, click "Service and Programming Information" then click the "Subscribe Now" in the GM Service Information box. Select your subscription and follow the steps to process.

    Well I only just bought my Ve about 4-5 weeks ago, and 1 of the first things I looked for was the workshop manual.
    I asked the same Holden dealership I bought the car at (spare parts & service), No manual exists for Ve, book or CD rom. Also did the usuall useless google search, found nothing either.

    That's why you will mostly find the service information online, through the proper channels of course, or you'll need to be very good friends with someone at a dealership that has access to the service information.

    The eBay workshop manual is just a RIP of the full GM Workshop Manual DVD.
    It has some bits missing when compared to the full Version.

    I bought the full Genuine GM DVD version from US ebay for around $100Au around 1 year ago. (DVD with roughly 4 Gigs).
    It has every, and I mean EVERY GM vehicle version from 2007 to 2010 and some older models as well. This includes Holden, Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick, Cadillac, Daewoo, Opel, and Vauxhall.
    The official version is good in the sense that everything is cross linked with one another.
    It has an inbuilt web server, that serves the pages up using an inbuilt search engine.

    I have seen the eBay version and that version has had most of the Pontiac G8 pages saved as PDF. It is still missing lots of information (Because the GM workshop manual is not sequential like a book, it is difficult to get EVERYTHING from it).
    The eBay version has also been available on torrents if you are so inclined to look.

    Your best bet if you are serious is to search eBay US for the GM workshop manual DVD. Get the real deal !!!
    You will NOT be disappointed if you can pick it up for less than $100Au

    Hi,
    I bought one on Ebay for $49.00 plus postage and it covers most models. The number of the book is 41744, it's a Haynes book. I think if you contact the seller they could put you in the right direction. Supercheap have them but they want $70.00+. Hope this is of help

    There was a post with a link for the VE 2007-2009 Workshop manual about 5 days ago.

    Google search.... "VE_Sedanwagon workshopmanual" ..... it should be the first result, but I cant open it anymore. ???? Why????


    [​IMG]

    The PDF file is 596MB

    The post has disappeared......l'm glad I downloaded it when I saw it.
