    Congratulations Rowley,you are the proud recipient of my first ever Froggy Forum post!
    I've just been trying to solve the same problem myself(for an STi though) and you can get one from www.motorbooks.com.au
    The ISBN is 0856967629,rrp is $49.95
    I haven't actually seen one yet as I just found it on their website this evening.One of their shops is just down the road from me so I'll check it out on Friday.

    Yeah, the Haynes manual more or less covers the 505 wagon. I got my manual through Autobarn but I had to wait a week while it came in.

    Cheers,

    I've got the Haynes 505 book but I've also just ordered a few of the genuine Peugeot books from the states (there's a series of them each covering different parts eg engine, suspension, body etc). I'll let everyone know how good they are when I get them. Hopefully they're good, they cost enough - US$69 each plus shipping.

    They came from http://www.books4cars.com

    Speaking of 505 wagons... the one previously mentioned at Goulburn is up for grabs in total.

    I know Phil Whitton wants the diff, but there's an auto transmission, a lot of good panels and other bits and pieces that could make somebody happy. Wheels, engine and odd other bits are gone.

    If nobody buys it the thing looks like being crushed, maybe as early as next week...

    Please don't e.mail me or PM me over this... if anyone wants to sort out a deal, PHONE ME on 0409 063 662... I won't be online much in the next few days, but I will probably be able to ensure that a deal can be done.

    Rowley,


    If you're not in a hurry to get one, keep an eye on eBay. Pug manuals are quite often listed for auction and mostly cheap. I got a 504 manual for $3 and $5 p&p. Type in peugeot in the http://www.ebay.com.au/ home page.

    Have a look at:

    Cancel my previous note about the 505 wagon being crushed... it's going on to the new yard, it was a mixup between an employee and the boss.

    They do have a very good 504 wagon tailgate, however...
