Morning all

Is there a copy of the Plus 2 workshop manual and parts list available for download anywhere please?

If so, would you be kind enough to point me in the right direction please?

Thanks.

The forum's wiki contains many member articles on the cars, arranged in the format of the factory workshop manual.
http://www.lotuselan.net/wiki/Category:Workshop_Manual

However, a genuine factory workshop manual is still something which needs to be purchased. Many different sources, some better priced than others, in the end definitely worth it.

I also have Brian Buckland's excellent manual on the (baby) Elan and while helpful for Plus 2 owners, I will be selling mine on as it has limited use as a reference for the Plus 2

Regards,

Randy

As far as I am aware, Lotus have not released the copyright of the Workshop manuals, so a downloaded PDF would be a violation of Copyright.

Ah, ok. Wasn't aware of that. Thanks for letting me know. That's probably why I haven't been able to find one!

Found a seller with an original manual, or 'reproduction' depending on your pocket or morals.
