Official USA Chevy Spark service manual?

57 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if Chevy has an official service manual available for the USA Sparks yet? This is one of the things I almost always buy as soon as I buy a car that is worth keeping more than a few years and typically allows me to do things I might want to do (mods. or repairs).

Got word back from my dealer, GM says no manual until around March.

I have a PDF copy of the one for the Chevy Beat (what the sparks called in India) if you want a copy of it, I know there will be some differences but will let you have a look anyway.

Thanks but I'm going to wait, nothing that needs immediate work until I decide if I'm going to add driving lights which will need to trigger from the high beam lights. Still trying to decide if I want to cut up the grill to fit the lights and if the lights I want will even fit.

I found a site that has some information on the Spark/Matiz and on the M300 Spark that may or may not correspond to the USA model Spark. Some of the wiring is defeintitly different based on putting my foglights in so it might only be world versions of the m300.

Your link is the OWNER'S manual, not the shop service manual with service procedures and wiring diagrams.

I'm going to the local library and they usually have the service manuals for free to browse while there online... Albeit I bet I'll have to wait until some are released.

Bad news for your link though: JULY!

Price: $200.00 Item not yet released to Helm from manufacturer. The item will be available on 7/25/2013

Probably trying to figure out how to cover up the steering wheel controls problem.

Checked today and the parts guy said they could not order the service manual, you have to go direct to Helm to order it. :rant2::soapbox::banghead:

I just checked and it still says October 3, 2013 so we might actually see this in print some day soon! There is no preorder button on the web page, but I might call them tomorrow and ask.

Im gonna grab one. I have 3 Sparks between mine and my parents cars. Father already has 18K on his, so he'll be the guinea pig.

And today it now says November 4. I think it may be time to start complaining to consumer protection departments of our government. Also, since we the people still own a rather large portion of GM, anyone know how to contact the GM czar?

I think that's a bit dramatic.. I'd howl at the publisher/vendor.

They claim GM has not released the material for them to print.
