An Open Letter

From: Yours Truly
To: Haynes Automotive Repair Manual for Honda Civic 1996-1998 and Acura Integra 1994-1998

Dear Chapter 11 Section 25,
I believe your step #5 to be somewhat misleading. It reads, “Remove the lower screws securing the sound insulator panel to the lower steering cover, then remove the steering column cover retaining screws (see illustration)” The first half of this step is accurate, and is correctly reflected in the picture. However, I have found that in a 1998 Acura Integra the steering column cover retaining screws do not need to be removed.

Also, your instructions should probably mention that there is a third screw behind the coin tray, and that the coin tray can be removed by depressing the two buttons on the top side of the coin pocket and folding it down all the way, then using a flat piece of metal such as a flat head screw driver to carefully but firmly lever the bottom left corner of the body panel away from the coin tray so that it pops out.

Thank you,
Mark Doliner

    Those Haynes manuals can be so aggravating sometimes. You need them to be able to do anything, and they’re so helpful most of the time. But then you find a step that is wrong or missing, and you’re stuck for hours trying to figure out what they meant without destroying your car!
