Venza Repair manual ?

I've looked for a repair manual for my 2012 Venza, but can not find any. Is the 2012 Camary as close enough to the Venza, that I should look for one of those ?

Thanks for the information. I'm sure that I will purchase that..But I sure would like to have a book also. A lot easier to grab a book, than print everything out.

Good luck finding a printed repair manual. The dealerships get it on-line from Toyota & I doubt that Haynes or any other company will gear up to produce a printed manual for the Venza.

Haynes has a 2007-2011 Camry manual. Are Camry's close enough to the Venza for most repairs? My Venza is a 2012.

The may be parts in common between venza and Camry but not so much to reply on a Camry manual. The venza is its own design and contrary to folk lore the venza is not a Camry wagon.

From personal experience, you are better figuring what you want to do with the car, find the appropriate section in the electronic manual, print the 4 to 20 pages and bring those in the garage. First, it is going to get dirty (most of the time). Getting a dirty book is not nice. Getting a dirty 10 pages in the waste basket isn't a big problem.

Second, you can write on printed plain paper. When I do something repetitive, like checking/changing brakes or engine oil, I write the size of the bolt box/wrench. So when I go under the car, I know I already have the right box/key to remove the bolts.

Also, I write the stats on the appropriate section: I mean when I measure the front brake disk thickness, I log it on the front brake maintenance section I printed. That way I have all the history: when I checked it, what thickness, when I changed it.

When I'll get to the point where it is too dirty or there is no room to write anymore, I'll just reprint that section!

Try a torrent client if you know what that is. Worked for me.
