Hi Fisheman

Is this a newer model?

Haynes and Chilton only go up to 1998 with their North American Accent repair manuals. The Haynes Elantra manual is good for 2001.

Haynes Australia (http://www.haynes.com.au/category119_1.htm) has a manual for the Excel up to 2000.

The Chilton Import Car Manual covers up to 2002 but this is more of a mechanic's reference for all import models. It assumes you know how to do a lot of things already. You can often find these at your local public library. Check it out - if it provides the kind of detail you can work with it may be worth the investment.

If its a specific question, the people on http://hyundaiperformance.com/forums/ are very helpful with hands-on stuff.

I just got a manual - but it covers a limited range of cars and years.

The book is for U.S ans Canadian Models - as far as I have found out so far, there are no UK manuals available. The majority of the info in this book seems relevant - you've just got to imagine the steering wheel on the other side.

Here's the book details:
----------------------------
ISBN 0-8019-8953-1
AUTHOR: Chilton
TITLE: Hyundai Coupes / Sedans 1994-1998 Repair Manual
COVERS: U.S and Canadian models of Hyundai Accent, Elantra, Excel, Scoupe, Sonata and Tiburon
(NOTE: I know the Tiburon is called the "Coupe" in the UK - so other names may be different, but the Accent is the same)
CONTAINS: General Information; Routine Maintenance & Tune-Up; Engine & Engine Overhaul; Driveability & Emmission Controls; Trouble Codes & Diagnostics; Fuel Systems; Chassis Electrical; Drive Train; Suspension and Steering; Brakes; Body
COST: Cost me £20 on eBay including postage, which is approx €28.

If you find a manual for Right Hand drive Accents then let me know - hope this info helps.
