I did like the post in the thread & used A123456123456 in the
drivers lic. field. Worked fine!

Good luck, DDK

thought I'd check to see if anyone had posted this.

the link no longer seems to be active, so here's a new one

- FOR MICHIGAN RESIDENTS ONLY - Michigan Electronic Library

If prompted for a license/ID number, just enter a random letter (K works) followed by 12 digits.

EDIT - it looks like they've caught on and have closed it off to anyone who's IP doesn't show them as being in the state of MI.

TRY THIS ONE INSTEAD

While it's not a factory service manual, you can't beat free. They even have a mobile-friendly version of the sight - great for getting grease, dirt and scratches all over my tablet!

Here's what I get:

"This resource is brought to you by the Michigan eLibrary (A program of the Library of Michigan). Access to ChiltonLibrary.com is available only to Michigan residents. We can no longer authenticate users either through a library card or a Michigan drivers license because of increased unauthorized use of the database. Access is only authorized by geo-ip verification i.e. the IP address of the users device will tell us that they are located in Michigan"

I just borrow a hard copy version (along with a Haynes one) from my local library if I might need it.

try the second link -it's new mexico. otherwise it seems like most state's online libraries give you access to it. I just started googling random states followed by "state online library". New Mexico was the third try after Ohio and Alaska. Their link just looks like a straight up key (no authentication page like MEL). That's why I linked the main site and not right to chilton library - the key may change.

Free is the only price I'd pay for a Chilton or Haynes manual. They are worth less than the paper they are printed on. Especially the one for my car "RWD full size Lincoln, 1971-2010". Barely even mentions the 4.6.

This may be a zombie thread, but I have some useful 2 cents to toss in. For those who are active duty military, or retired, you can access Chiltons manuals online for free through the MWR Library website. You have to set up an online account at the on-post library, but once you do that you can log in at your house. It is the same setup that the Auto Skills Center on post uses for their repair manuals.
