2014 Factory Service Manuals Now Available!

Found out that GM has finally released the factory 2014 Stingray service manual set to Helm Inc. for public distribution. The 3 book set includes mechanical, electrical, body and more. It's the exact same manual set your dealership uses for work on your Stingray. Covers all 2014 models, and a lot will carry over to the '15s. The '15 model year manual is not yet available. I ordered my copy today!

Mine has shipped. Expected delivery is Saturday, but as the office is closed on the weekend, it will likely be Monday.

Just received my service manual set via FedEx! It is a 4-volume set, and is very complete. A couple things of note while thumbing through them: The body repair section has a very comprehensive section on repairs to the aluminum frame. Also, there is information for diagnosis and replacement of performance data recorder components. I gather the original intent was for the '14 to have the PDR, but it was delayed for whatever reason. This information may allow the possibility of retrofitting '14s with the PDR - assuming a certain skill level and budget of course!

If you don't mind me asking, how much is the 4 volume set of factory manuals and where'd you order them from?

Thank you for your help!

The company is Helm Inc. The set was only $200.00, plus $25.00 shipping. An interesting side note is while the manual is listed as for 2014s, there is information for 2015s such as the PDR and Z06-specific trim items. I haven't browsed the entire set yet, but wouldn't be surprised if the 2015 manual is the same with just a different cover.

Yes, I just checked the site. Apparently, Helm raised the price. I think everything they sell is technically a reproduction, as the dealerships get the originals upon model introduction. Should still be bound and look like the originals. Mine do.

A digital version would be nice, though unauthorized copies might occur.
