    Default R18 and 16 manuals

    Hi all

    Does anyone have a R18 and 16 workshop manual for sale? The R18 manual must cover the turbo.

    Keep a beady eye on ebay, in US, Australia and UK. The R16 manuals do appear, and some may be around even now. I can't recall re the R18 but I wasn't looking for that exactly.

    Thanks John. Am doing that and see that there are some available here and overseas. Have asked if the R18 manual covers the turbo and waiting on response.

    If it is the Haynes manual, only the 1985 onwards edition (ISBN 0 85696 971 0) covers the 18 Turbo version.

    I have a factory R18 manual, I think it covers the turbo.
    It certainly refers to the turbo in some of the yellow paper updates at the back of the book.

    I hadn't planned to dispose of it, but if you are stuck I reckon I could part with it.
    I have entertained visions of getting an R18 wagon but that is extremely unlikely in reality so I could let it go...

    I also used to have the cassette tape that came with the car when new. It had an Australian actor talking you through the car's controls on one side of the tape, and "music to enjoy while driving your Renault 18" on the other side. Not sure where that is now, I might still have it...

    If you are interested, let me know and I'll look at whether it has the turbo in detail.

    Thanks for the offer Simca 1100. Simon is sending me both manuals gratis. What a great fellow in addition to being a guru on all things Renault on aussiefrogs. He says the R18 manual he has does cover the Turbo which is great.
