    Hey Janster,

    Tthanks for the info. I guess I meant service manual. I was looking for like the ones in the link you sent, that show how it's built, elect. schematics, how to change brake pads etc. For the VW, the Bentley manual was the best for home service and repair. I've seen "Chalton" manuals at Kragen but wondered if there was a better one.

    Looks like the Factory manual is the best, and even better if you can get it online for free!

    My headlights need adjustment after the lift was installed, and since its an 09, I'd like to do it by the book.

    Yeah, Free is good!!
    The online factory service manuals are kinda a PITA especially if you're in the middle of something and gotta run in the house and look up whatever it is you're working on. It always takes me forever to look for exactly what I need in the online manuals.

    But - it's FREE, and it's a hell-of-a-lot better than paying someone mooku bucks to do the work for you!! Just gotta spend some time researching online first before starting the job. That's what I usually always do.

    Good Luck!
