Many thanks! Suggest saving as much as you can to hard drive before Chevrolet realise that Joe Public can access it online!

Given that it's full of pop up advertising, I would suggest that they already do...

Hi Everyone,


Found this Chevrolet Captiva Europe Service Manual with loads of useful stuff in it from Body Repair manuals, electrical wiring diagrams and a service manual.



May come in useful, enjoy.

Sorry to say folks, but the link is dead, just a message saying that GM had asked the site's owners not to post the service manual any longer (only accessible at the root page, http://gm.ws123.net)
Bugger!

The manual in usable form is about 6.7gb, a bit too big for email. If you want to PM me, I might be able to send you in the correct direction.

Tried and failed last time it was available- it is available as a torrent download though if you look hard enough.

You need to search the net and locate it as a torrent file and then download it and run it on a virtual drive- quite complicated if you've not doen it beforeit has from time to time been available on line, but as soon as GM find out about it, the site ends up shut down. I take it they don't want anyone to have access to their software. I've also seenit for sale on DVD from eBay. At 6.7gb, it's a bit big for an email attachment!

Totaly agree with bigiainw about the VIRUS ridden versions out there....


I went searching for a manual last year, and being an IT consultant of 25 years experience, so when opening some dodgy links to claimed Captiva manuals, I took precautions against infecting my computer with a virus ..... ie. I used my wifes laptop instead




Unfortunatlty I did "catch" a rathr nasty trojan that installed a "anti virus" programme that I could not get rid of which reported that her laptop had over 300 viruses and the only way to remove it was to BUY the full version of the "anti virus" programme. Of course if was all bullsh!t, as the "anit virus" programme WAS the virus, and all buyig the full verison would do is give the b'stards my credit card details. As I said, I have been in IT for over 25 years, and work for a large UK IT company, so I knew what to do.... put her laptop back in her bag and deny all knowledge




I did fix it, but it needed a rebuild to be sure. Which takes time, with all the updates, etc.... Luckily, we have Network Drive at home, so al important stuff had been backed up.
