I got a Haynes manual for a 2001-2005 My first job was to be an inner tie rod change. Couldn't find it in the book anywhere?? Where is the rack and pinion page? Am I missing it? Or is the manual that lame>

The index will tell you chapter and section number. Not page numbers, if that's what's screwing you up.

Yeah Haynes is dumb, might as well use it as TP for all it's worth.

Hmmmm Yeah for 18 bucks you should be able to take it in the bathroom with it, skim through it a bit, and be ready to pass an ASE Master certification exam before it's time to set it down and pull up your britches.

Well the Factory ones cover everything. Frame specs in regards to potential accident damage of it for example. They aren't so good for simple oil changes and such since they are meant for mechanics at a dealership. I bought mine..2002 Rangers (2 volumes..9.5lbs!!) on eBay years ago. Google searching for them should give you something. Newer years are even available on DVD's..still factory Ford. Somewhere here (FRF) I put a link to them on sale...books and DVD's. I don't know if they are different now..probably but late 70's the Haynes manuals were annoying because being English..as in made in England...words were used that we don't use (whilst) or even sometimes know. eg:Spanner (wrench). Nice thing if you can locate the genuine Ford ones is that they don't cover several years but are made for a specific year. The 2011 may be an exception due to the end of production...if so then the 2010 one will work for them I guess.
