I don't want to say that Haynes manuals are bad, they have helped me
many times, but... the choice of contents in my Haynes for 84-88 5K
(5K, not 100, the book is written for US) seems weird. There's lot of
info on 4 cylinder engines and carburators, though they were never used
in US spec cars. But when it comes to AC, it only shows how to remove
the compressor. There's detailed description of turbo ignition system,
how to check all the sensors etc. But funny thing, the book doesn't even
mention the possibility of pulling the codes using the fuel pump relay!
