October is Fall Car Care Month, a great time to get your vehicle ready for the change in seasons. Chandler Library can help you access auto repair and maintenance information with Chilton Library, a fully searchable online version of the popular auto repair manuals, available from home at any time and free with your library card! You can find maintenance recommendations, repair procedures, wiring diagrams and even diagnostic codes.
To access Chilton Library from home, start at chandlerlibrary.org and go to the Research & Learning tab. Then click A-Z List of Resources and scroll down to choose Chilton Library. You’ll need your library card and PIN if you’re signing in from home. Then select year, make and model to view the available information for your vehicle.
Don’t forget, Chandler Library has a wealth of other resources for you! Check out auto reviews in Consumer Reports, browse current issues of Motor Trend with Flipster and watch informative videos including how internal combustion engines work and the history of the Ford Mustang with Kanopy. It’s all free with your library card!
