ebay!! Got my complete set(vol 1, vol 2, and electrical manual) for my '01 for about $50 shipped! These are the factory dealership manuals that the dealership uses or whatever. Thick, heavy, beefy manuals with all the info you would ever want on how to take apart this, replacethat. I love them.


More expensive than what i paid...but you never know what shows up. i got lucky i suppose.

can't buy them at the dealer i believe. can only buy them second hand i believe.


imo...those $20 chiltons or haynes manuals are almost junk. very useful to get a ball park idea on what needs to happen, these ford ones are right down to every detail. With diagrams instead of pictures you can barely understand what your looking at.

You can buy the official Ford Ranger dealer manual from Helm, Inc for about $150 new. I lucked out and got mine on eBay for $35. For your 2003, any factory Ranger manual from 2001 through 2003 will do the job.
