Ranger guides from Ford

A few weeks ago i found a very well detailed disassembly guide published by Ford. I have no idea where i got it from and i can't find it again. I was hoping to find one for the front end for my mother in laws ranger. does anybody know where i can find these guides?

Yes, on ebay usually, Ford Shop Manuals

Some later years are also available on CD sets, Ford made these CDs and some are copied and sold, but its not legal to do that, lol, as they are copyrighted

Ford sends out Shop Manual sets for each model for each year to all Ford Service centers, so alot of then are out there, and some find their way on to ebay or similar sites

And some people who bought them sell the vehicle and so no longer need them and sell the sets

They are YEAR SPECIFIC, and very detailed for that model for that year, years close to the one you have "may" have what you need, but may not as well.

There were 3 generations of Rangers
Front end should be similar for all years in that generation, but "should be" the key phrase there, :)

The EVTM(electric vacuum troubleshooting manual) was the most popular book in the Shop Sets, and is often found sold on its own, and it is GREAT for wiring issues but not for front end work
