New Audi A3 manual marks 20 years of popular hatchback

Out now!

As Audi this year celebrates 20 years of one of its best-selling cars, a new Haynes Owners Workshop Manual is being released which covers the Audi A3 Diesel (April ’08 – September ’12) 08 to 62 registrations, adding to Haynes’ expanding collection of car and bike manuals.

First launched in September 1995, the Audi A3 - popular in both three and five-door options - has enjoyed worldwide sales of more than 3.6 million, accounting for a fifth of the German manufacturer’s entire output.

Released on 24 September 2015, the new manual covers the repair, servicing and maintenance of the Hatchback (3-door) and Sportback (5-door) with 1.6 litre, 1.9 litre and 2.0 litre turbo-diesel engines. The manual does not cover petrol models.

Having sold over 200 million manuals worldwide over more than 50 years, Haynes is the industry leader in automotive manuals, helping everyday motorists to save money on costly garage bills.

Every manual is written from hands-on experience gained from stripping down and rebuilding each vehicle in the Haynes Project Workshop. The practical step-by-step instructions and clear photos are easy to follow and provide information on maintenance, servicing, fault finding, the MoT and Haynes tips to make many tasks easier.

Many Haynes manuals, including the Audi A3 Manual, are available as a Manuals Online, so you can now access service and repair information on your PC, laptop, tablet or smart phone.

The Manuals Online include all the content from the printed manuals with the additional benefits of a glossary of terms, searchable menus and quick links.
