3G TL service manual 2004-2008 Acura TL sharing with all

i have in pdf format the entire service manual for our awesome 3g tl's if anyone wants one i do not mind sending one to you guys to share with the community. i am not selling trading bartering or accepting any forms of service or trade off for this as i dont want to break any rules. i wont turn down a mutual gift from anyone though lol but like i said im not asking for anything for this im just doing it because i know its rare to find free and expensive to buy. just giving back for all the great advice everyones given me over the years.

I think they're already around here somewhere. You're best off using some kind of file hosting site (Google Drive, dropbox, etc) to hold it there publicly and then post a link here.

I tried doing this for a fellow member not too long ago but it was too big to send through email, so it is easier to use Dropbox

I believe this link still works, I posted it a while ago (hosted on my dropbox):

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/dsxqvazck...WNWGAlSEa?dl=0


It's SUPPOSED to have all the 3g TLs covered (there's 3 different PDF's in there)

Indeed the Helms Manual there is password-protected. The other two are fine. I wonder if the password is known.

I've been thumbing through it without issues. Where are you getting a prompt for a password?

Right-click, properties, unblock, apply, OK?

EDIT: It's accessible without a password seen in second pic, what else do you want to do with it?

Ha, funny. Acrobat indeed opens it just fine. I was using a different client on Linux, and there it wanted a password just to open it. Thanks.

I see, performing a conversion now to remove the "security," will post back if successful.

FYI - The 04-07 is "secured" as well.

thanks....just worked for me on Dropbox. btw, still working on that DRL problem that you sent me the electrical diagram for. I think that the module up under the dash has a bad connection. I may just live with it since getting in there with my back is almost impossible. Thanks for the download!

Yes, I would love to have this manual. Just purchased a 2005 TL Base 6MT and will be doing a lot of work on it, mostly cosmetic and a shop manual would be very helpful. [email protected]

'04-'07 - Text Searchable & Reduced File Size

Much thanks to thoiboi for the file!

I downloaded the 2004-2007 service manual and made some enhancements. It is now text searchable and the file size is greatly reduced. Here is a link if anyone is interested.

Hi my fiend. I was looking online and the '07-'08 TL manual is over $200, but I was willing to pay. I looked and noticed that they ate it off stock. I'd gladly pay you for the pdf copy. Just let me know your price. My email address is [email protected]

2008 TL - Torque Spec for VTEC Spool Valve Assy?

Hi,
I downloaded the the 2004 TL shop manual ( the 2008 wasn't available) a few years ago and really never used it. The car is a daily driver and has been rock solid. I now have the P2647 dtc and purchased the Spool Valve Assy from Bernardi's for $160 including shipping - local dealer wanted $220 including tax.
My question is regarding the torque spec on the 3 bolts holding the assembly to the block. In the 2004 manual it is 12 ft-lbs. I would assume it is the same for the 2008 as well - but I'd rather not be guessing! Can someone please confirm the correct torques spec. Thanks so much!
