If you've ever used a Haynes manual to work on your POS car, you'll get a real kick out of this page. Nearly had me in tears, I was laughing so hard. Brought back many highschool memories.

And for you British Leyland sufferers: this.

As a long time Haynes user, that's hilarious! Some parts of those books are pretty helpful, but others are like Ikea instructions.

OH MY GOD SOMEONE ELSE WHO APPRECIATES THE CLERKS ANIMATED SERIES I LOVE YOU BRAEHAUS!

And yes. Haynes = Devil. Chiltons = Devil. I did my own repairs on my first few cars - '86 Nova (1.6L), '86 Olds 98 Regency (3.8L), '90 Grand Caravan (3.3L) and '79 Datsun 280ZX. Then I started working full time, and gave up on that hobby. These days, my hands are weak enough that I can barely do anything on my own anymore. So I just bought a warranty instead. :/

Haynes: See illustration for details
Translation: None of the illustrations notes will match the pictured exploded, numbered parts. The unit illustrated is from a previous or variant model.

I tried to replace my heater core with that...didn't work, so got the factory manual...made hella more sense!
