It seems that honda has done away with the paper service manual for a couple years now and went with a online subscription base media. The info i collected were from honda's service express website and is the same source that the techs uses. I was able to save over 1000 pdf but i know I'm still missing some info which I didn't get to finish doing like component location index and the schematics. I spent countless hours getting the important info like removing and installing. Some search words i used were remove, install, inspect, test, connectors, etc.

Here is the link for my google drive I'm sharing. If anyone wants to donate for the time i spent collecting them my PayPal email is [email protected]. I would love to hop back on service express to finish off and collect more info on other cars. If the mods don't agree with this post please go ahead and delete. Thanks!

You've done a great thing here.

But I must ask, isn't Honda offering paper owners manual that you have to order online? They are with other Honda's.

Owner's manuals can be ordered from Honda's contracted publisher, Helm Inc, but not service manuals. IIRC you used to be able to order "Official Honda" printed service manuals a year or so after a new vehicle was released. AFIAK Service Express is now the only source of that information.

Thank you for doing all this work.

I was wondering if there's a way to click on the links within a page. For instance under 'Component Location Index' there's one called 'Audio System Component Location'. Each thing in that blowup has a blue text of 'Removal, Installation and Test' line. It doesn't do anything when I click on it. Is it supposed to blowup into another page?

Is there a way to save them in bulk or do you have to click each one?
At the root of his Google Drive (where all the folders are), hit CTRL-A, Right click in the highlighted section and select Download. Google will zip all of the folders and then download them to your downloads folder (assuming you're using Chrome). The file size was like 268MB.

Fellow G3 piloteers: where do you get basic maintenance items (such as pollen filter and engine air filter) from? Online? Local dealer?
Also, would a carbon infused pollen filter reduce the air volume? Thanks!
