Ordered mine.

The Service Manual and Body Repair Manual as $122 plus tax and UPS Ground was another $19.35.

I'll "review" them and let you know.

I'm going to guess (hope) that the website is having problems. I went into it several times today from work and placed my order during one of those times. Now that I'm home it won't open for me either. I just called the number on my invoice that I printed out and it was answered by DC publications. (whew!)

1-800-423-7915

The lady suggested that I just try googling techauthority.com so I did, clicked on it and this is what I got this time.

https://techauthority.gltghosting.co...atalogId=10051

This is what they have:
81-326-0711 2007 COMPASS (MK) OWNERS MANUAL $20.00
81-326-0711D 2007 COMPASS (MK) OWNERS MANUAL KIT $26.00
81-370-07067CD 2007 PATRIOT/COMPASS (MK) SERVICE MANUAL ON CD *XML & SVG* $120.00
81-316-0738CD COMPASS (MK) BODY REPAIR MANUAL ON CD $2.00


Good luck!!

I just tried the link again on #2 and it worked

I received the Body Repair Manual on CD last week and it's primarily about the types of Welds, Sealers, where to section the frame, etc. It's more for the structure than it is for nuts and bolts type stuff. It is well done in Adobe format.

I did find an error in line 8, pg 20 for the VIN code that is for the Engine. It calls for an "A" code for the 2.4 instead of a "W" and then a "Y" code for a 2.0 Diesel. That's got to be either a "whoops" or for export .

The Service manual is on back order

I had to reduce this quite a bit, I hope it's still readable.

Good catch, Gramps! It's also interesting that the gasoline 2.0L engine is not listed, even though it is shown as an option; the brochure shows it will not be available until the spring of 2007.

BTW, I wonder how many will actually be built with the 2.0? Not much of a gain in fuel economy, and the $200 savings also doesn't seem like much of an incentive, either. Guess we'll know the answer if DCX drops this as an option in a year or two...

Maybe one of the DC Tech guys can check on the "Y" engine code. It may be that it should be the VVT gasoline engine listed there. It also appears to be a "delete" type of option so sales naturally would be low.

Yup a $200 savings on the engine but only available with the CVT for another $1050, same as a Caliber SXT if you feel like a road test. The SXT suspension is not quite as firm as the Compass' so that would have to be taken in to consideration.

FINALLY GOT THE SERVICE MANUAL


I did get it copied to my hard drive but, of course, there are all kinds of warnings about copyright laws etc. There is also an ActiveX warning that you have to by-pass on IE7 that's a pain. I just got it and still have a lot of playing to do with it. The wiring diagrams look VERY nice so far. The illustrations are drawings, no pictures. Some of them so simple that they just don't show you any detail.

Example:

REMOVAL

1. Using a trim stick C-4755 or equivalent, remove the upper trim cover over the center bezel and radio.

This is now available on eBay for about half of the $140 that I paid for it.

Caution: Works with Internet Explorer 6, the wiring diagrams do not work with IE7. You can set up a virtual PC to run both or run a Stand Alone Browser for multiple IE versions. I have decided to run mine at work, if needed, until I pick up another monitor for my old computer and run a dedicated machine .

Also for those planing to do any interior work you may want to consider getting some trim panel tools if you don't have them already. I found this nice 5 piece set of Trim and Moulding Tools (#95432) at Harbor Freight for $6.99. The local outlet didn't carry them so I also had to pay $6.95 S&H. If you go on line to order try and add other stuff with the order so the S&H doesn't get you. eBay was more $'s or the same for fewer pieces.

Service Manual Problems

I recently bought the service manual on CD and am having problems with the Wiring diagrams. The service manual part is okay but the "Wiring Information" section gives an error message: "unspecified SIE-Type"" passed to frameset" whenever I try to access a diagram.

Has anyone else bought the CD and had this problem?

I tried setting up Internet Explorer (with User Agent String Utility V 2.0) so that it reports as IE 6 but the diagrams still don't load.

Any help would be appreciated. I've not been able to get through to DC Tech Authority with my problem.

That's the same thing that I get with IE7, but it worked fine when I was just using IE6. I'll take mine into work tomorrow and check it out there. My company still uses IE6 only. I'll let you know and maybe one of the whiz-bangs there can figure it out.

I did find this in another JK forum about their CD Service Manual.

Question:The CD works for the Service sections, but the Electrical Diagrams do not work. I get a "unspecified SIE type" error.

Any help?

BTW: I verify the SVG Viewer works using the Adobe test function.

Reply:
everything worked for me in IE7. i didn't use the svg viewer
I'll keep you posted on this end. Let us know if you stumble on to something else.

Note: I just removed Adobe SVG Viewer, did a restart and got the same error message. At least this time I could read the index.

Works just fine with straight IE6 and Windows XP Pro after downloading the SVGView.exe. Now to find some "free time" to play around.

Does NOT work with Firefox either. Nor Opera.
