Sounds like a rant - but isn't. Generally the first thing I do whenever I get a new vehicle is GET A SERVICE MANUAL.
Then I have somewhere to look if I can't find a fuse, signal flasher or can't start the engine. It's so much faster than coming in the house, posting a question on a forum somewhere, and searching the Internet while waiting for answer from somebody, then sometimes trying to figure out what the person is saying if they're not clear. The Service Manual has pictures, diagrams, and step by step diagnostics to help fix problems.
Someone who can't even identify the distributor DEFINITELY needs one.
I realize printed Helms manuals aren't cheap, and Fiero owners are but manuals can be downloaded these days. Having a manual on your computer can save you a load of grief, provided you're not too lazy to look up the information you need.
see???....it was a good idea- i had......thanks for the reassurance.....I found the '87 service manual while looking for Mera Stuff....my search led me there for the Mera build downloads....."sweet"...."two birds with one stone" I thought...had them for about 2-3 weeks now...have not looked at the manual yet, though....when i need it i reckon....its nice to know great minds think alike. cheers- Dan

Lots of people here are making repairs or mods and have no idea of how their Fiero is put together. They need a Fiero Body Manual.
I've split the Body Service Manual section out from the 1986 Factory Service Manual and made it available separately for download. This is a small 113 page, 7 MB PDF file for quick download Click here to start it now.
It's handy to print this out and put in a 3-ring binder. You don't need this file if you've already downloaded the complete 78 MB 1986 Factory Service Manual

I see people still asking silly questions they could answer themselves in minutes WITH A MANUAL. I mean, where do you think the people taking the time to answer your question got their information from?
