Even the Haynes books can be good...

by TheFnord

IMHO, if one doesn't often do much work on their own car, or if one's too cheap to spring for the Factory Manual, I think the Haynes book(s) are still a good thing to have.

Some things, like bulb replacement, that one could do themselves, it's just knowing the correct locations of the fasteners or sequence of removal / reinstallation.

Other things that are best left to a proper mechanic, it helps to be able to judge the specific parts / amount of labor required (and on one occasion, it helped save me from being royally ripped off).
