2016 Service/Repair Manual Now Available

The service/repair manual for the 2016 Colorado is now available on the helminc.com website. It is not cheap at $375 but having the factory repair manual provides valuable information. I have read post where there was interest so I figured I'd pass on the news.

You cannot... You have to subscribe to acdelco TDS and print the entire thing to PDF... Very tedious work but it's 20 bucks for 3 days and it took 4 subscriptions plus tax

Do you spend all day downloading it or get to it when you can kind of deal?

Service Manual Arrived

I received my 2016 Colorado/Canyon factory service manual today and thought I would share a picture to show what you get for $375 from helminc. Well, more like $400 once shipping and handling was added. I know others have pirated a copy from the acdelcotds website probably violating copyright laws so do what your conscience allows. I received five very large books. The manuals do include our LWN diesel engine if you were wondering. Just thought I would share in case others were thinking of buying the manual set and wondering what all you get.

It's not pirated, and I paid just FYI... I paid for a sub and peeled the whole thing... I read the entire terms and conditions and it did not state you could not print... I my printer prints PDF it just so happens... Good on you though! You got a paper back! I wanna see how you type a search and get hits with that hahaha

Having bought one of their manuals back in the mid 1970's, I can assure you that they were always big bucks. $150.00 or more back then I think which was a lot of money then. The info inside though is unbeatable and can allow you to do repairs you would never dare try otherwise.

Yea factory service manuals are definitely top notch... I stopped using Chilton's and Haynes 15 years ago... For euros it's always been Bentley publishers... For some others it's helm... For Toyota it's TIS... And those helm manuals are definitely a real pretty penny... That's why I went and got my own for 90 bucks... It's searchable, clickable, and it's digital so I print what I need to take into the garage and throw it away when I'm done... I get to keep mine brand new forever and ever... Just can't legally share it

Mind elaborating on this? I would prefer an electronic copy to having to tab hundreds of pages for quick references.

It's been said before... Go to acdelcotds and subscribe to the system. Open your particular manual, and print the entire thing.... Print to PDF or to paper, it's up to you. You should make folders to preserve the structure of the online manual
