According to Ford, Helm Inc. is their vendor for all their manuals. I called Helm and they said they have the Workshop Manual for the 2016 Focus RS, the Electric included for $177 on DVD. I ordered one and it will be here in 7-10 days. We'll see if it's the "good one", and not a Haynes wannabe... Their # is 1-800-782-4356 if you're inclined to inquire...

.........I'd rather you pay them... My price exceeds theirs....

Let us know how that works out. Their website doesn't list a 2016 RS option, and 2017 RS says it won't be available until 9/30.

No, but I'm also not in a huge rush to get the manual.

Oh, hey, neither am I. Actually I'm playing catch up. I have the .. l'auto... but not how it works, and how to fix it?... I can't tell you the elation when I received the Official Workshop Manual for my '65 Healey 3000 I had sitting in my gravel and wooden floored garage....

Intelligence isn't always about what you have in your head. It's knowing where to go , and what you need , to find what you want....

Any way for you to screenshot a couple of the pages to show the layout? I'd personally much rather have a book too, but it is what it is...

This may be a dumb question, but can you copy the file and access it from an iPad or tablet? I'd be interested in buying a copy, but the CD-ROM thing scares me. I'd have to drag my old PC out of the closet to even read it. If I couldn't transfer the files to at least a laptop or even better an iPad then I'd say thats a deal breaker for me.

Thanks.

...Contact Helm, perhaps they may make it available in a Flash drive....that could be more conducive to future proofing...

These are ST manuals not RS manuals.

No, it's the RS manual. Look at Helm's site under 2017. It's the RS. It only runs in a Windows environment. The only thing I could do the speed things up was to image the disc and mount it via a virtual drive. Massive speed difference. But the software the runs the manual is literally from the Windows XP era.
