Service/Repair Manual

Does anyone have an online source for a hard-copy Service/Repair manual for the 2014-15 Corolla? I have the 800 number for the Toyota Material Distribution Center. Thanks.

Are you talking about the maintenance log? http://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/docum...html?locale=en

No, I am seeking a hard-copy manual so that I can tear into the car. Should have just written Repair Manual.


By the by, am currently rereading several Calvin & Hobbs books. Sure do miss that comic strip.

Only option right now is self-exploration (as many of us have done) or Toyota's TIS website (which you have to subscribe to ... what I did was a two-day subscription and then screen capped what I needed or planned to need in the future).

I won't post anything here, just because if Toyota catches us sharing information from the TIS website, it is going to raise hell here for the owners of the forum.

Haynes won't release anything until later, because they don't want to have to reprint the book for mid-year changes (for example, they release a 2014 manual right away, then the rear center armrest comes out in 2015 ... and in 2016 ... ???).

Usually they wait until the generation is halfway through its life, at least in my experience (most of the time, they wait until the generation ends depending on the popularity of the car).

Not sure what exactly you plan on doing ... the brakes and suspension are close enough to a 10th gen where directions from there oughta be damn near verbatim for what they would be for an 11th gen.

I think what Haynes really does is wait 3-years b/c most people don't care about doing their own repairs while they can get it fixed for free under warranty.

In case Toyota is monitoring the forum. $15/day or two days is fairly reasonable for a TIS subscription and TIS has publicly said they don't mind you downloading the information for later personal usage (but they don't make the format/file naming easy for you to do that). They don't allow you to share that information and they don't allow you to let others use your subscription.

I think they still sell a hard-copy printed shop manual from Helm for several hundred dollars.

What I would like to see from Toyota is a service where for somewhere around $50-$75, I can either buy the existing online manual burned to a DVD and shipped to me, or I can buy a secure log-in to the website and download the entire file at one click. (Toyota has said before they won't make the entire file available due to bandwidth issues - doesn't make sense as it probably takes more bandwidth for users to view and download each individual page - and the cost above would more than cover the bandwidth. What I think they are really afraid of is that if someone has the entire file, it is hard to prevent them uploading it to filestube or dropload or similar on a taiwan server - and that would be an issue with my suggestion also.)

Another good point (yeah, the tuning crowd would probably buy a manual, but most mechanics that aren't interested in that would wait until they need it for a major repair).

I'd love to see a DVD version of it, and yeah, downloading or screenshotting a page at a time sucks, but they definitely won't offer download of the entire DVD (unless they require an Internet connection for DRM license checking), or a single click download thanks to pirates.

Thank you for the most useful info. Have already check out TIS.

I typically invest in a factory repair manual and in the past have used Helm. For the 2007 Corolla which was the first Toyota I have purchased, I bought both Toyota repair volumes through Toyota Material Distribution $$$$$.

I contacted my Toyota dealership and they told me that they can sell me their manual for $350 lol

By the way...if you use Mega...and someone mysteriously made a fake account and posted a link to the screenshot information that would be awfully helpful ;D

Also, anyone who used TIS, does any of the information include disassembly instructions for the panels and such?

TIS shows everything you need step-by-step. The only thing that annoys me is.

Step 1: Remove Kick Panel (CLICK HERE)
Step 2: Remove Lower Instrument Panel (CLICK HERE)

You get the idea, lots of link clicking... almost excessive.

I think the 2 day limit is gone. For some reason, I chose the standard 2 day package and the expiration date is 1/3/0001...lmfao
