I just purchased a 1998 vw cabrio convertible. I love it. I went to a vw dealership in Harrisburg, Pa and asked if they had any manuals for a 1998 or if they could order one? They said No!


Asked by Jul 01, 2013 at 01:19 AM about the Volkswagen Cabrio

Question type: General

I need to obtain a manual for a 1998 vw cabrio gls convertible.  A VW dealership pretty much gave us the cold shoulder and said to go to ebay.  They said VW stopped making them many years ago.  I asked all the way up to 2002 and they said, "nope, don't have any and we don't make any", ok, I get it and I asked several mechanics and they didn't know anything either.  Does anybody know how to get a 1998 vw cabrio manual for the car?  Please help.

Search eBay using " 1998 VW manual". Sort the list by "Price + shipping lowest first". It should show owners and repair manuals.

The most accurate and complete manual is from Bentley. Not cheap...but it is the 100% solution: http://www.bentleypublishers.com/volkswagen/repair-information/vw-jetta-golf-1993-1999-repair-manual.html
