The Shop Service Manual is the book with all the step by step repair info....Kinda like the Haynes manual...except its the one the Ford Techs use....or shall I say used...by now they are all probably using the CD's on there computers.

They are using DVDs. And the software lock is easily defeatable by setting the clock on your computer back when using it.

Yup just spoke with the local stealership a few days ago about buying a factory service manual and they told me they use Mitchell OnDemand1, which is computer based. So I got it and wow pretty cool. Still something seems missing then having the manual. I have to print out pages etc.. rather than carry the book out to the car. Good score the stealer ship here wouldn't even bother to look for one for me. I envy you.
