C5 X7 Workshop manual on CD

Unread post by bobins »

I noticed a seller on eBay selling a copy of a PDF based workshop manual on CD for the C5 X7.

I presume this is just the relevant images and text extracted from the usual Citroen searchable workshop manual and not some new source and form of a manual that Citroen has published ?
I can add my own pinch of salt to the eBay description as I know the DW10BTED4 engine wasn't fitted through to 2015 so that bit is incorrect #-o - my question is directed towards the source of the information they've got on the CD.
Anyone got a copy and can comment ? :)

He's basically copying pages from the servicing manual, saving the pages as PDFs and illegally selling them for profit.

All those PDFs can be downloaded freely and for free anyway, but it's good to know they're from the genuine Citroen workshop manual. I have previously found a Russian complete printed workshop manual in my online trawling, but as my Russian isn't up to much, and it appeared to be printed on bog paper, I haven't bothered with it much :rofl2:
