Haynes Technical manuals for South Africa

Workshop Data and Technical manuals for South Africa

The Haynes Publishing Group has been supplying South African market, with their printed workshop manuals since the early 1970’s.  Haynes Publishing is the home of car, motorcycle, scooter and ATV manuals, as well as a range of other specialist topics in print and digital formats.  Printed manuals are still available for the SA Motor Trade.  The newest product the HaynesPro workshop data has now been released.

Haynes printed manuals

The automotive vehicle manuals are based upon taking apart and putting together a vehicle. The cover of each manual states: “based on a complete stripdown and rebuild”.   Each section has step-by-step instructions with diagrams and photographs of an actual stripdown or rebuild.  The printed manuals are generally aimed at the DIY enthusiast and home mechanic.

The digital manuals are available through a yearly subscription for unlimited access. Haynes promises the digital manuals contain all the information from the printed manuals, with the addition of colour photos instead of black and white, and videos for some common procedures such as oil changes. The videos will not necessarily be specific to the car covered in the manual. The manuals also include colour wiring diagrams.

Haynes takes advantage of hyperlinking in the manuals, making it easy to get from the table of contents to specific sections or linking to descriptions of parts within a section. The manuals are cheaper than their printed counterparts, and we supply a same day service throughout South Africa, and SADC countries.  For more information with regard to the Haynes workshop or online manuals,  please enter the link below,

HaynesPro WorkshopData software now available in South Africa

With the launch in 1995 of HaynesPro, they have served the automotive market with the latest technical data for cars, trucks and light commercial vehicles. HaynesPro are committed to providing independent workshops with easily accessible data to enable them to maximise efficiency and profitability.  Today they are Europe’s leading workshop data software publisher.

HaynesPro Workshop data approved by MIWA

Due the fact that the HaynesPro workshopData covers the European “Car Park”, we decided to first test the software to ensure that it will cover the majority of South African cars.   After extensive testing by MIWA for a number of months, the software was approved and recommended for use in South African workshops. Due to this fact, we have proudly incorporated the MIWA logo in our website. MIWA stands for “Motor Industry Workshop Association of South Africa” and represents 2500 independently owned workshops in the RSA.

Repair Times

All South African packages come standard with a “repair time” module already included in the software. Our repair times module contains detailed descriptions of all servicing and repair work, including standard labour times. The module specifies individual repair items and calculates their cost. As it takes account of follow-up as well as additional work, no labour items are overlooked – either in the cost specification or the invoice. This helps to maximise workshop revenue.

HaynesPro Modules for the RSA

The HaynesPro WorkshopData has three separate car maintenance tools. Considered singly, the three modules are called Tech, Electronics, and Smart. Together they form the acronym SET.  HaynesPro workshopData can be divided into three main Modules.
