PDF Manuals are not printed and shipped to you. Rather, they are downloaded to your computer. You will reconize one when you see the BLUE PDF icon on the cover as shown below. Once purchased, they are available for viewing in your Mercedessource.com account. You are allowed three downloads per each purchase. All PDF Manuals are also available in a printed form if you would prefer.
Printed Manuals are printed and shipped to you. Most printed manuals are available in a PDF format as well but not all of them. We print and bind each manual in house with a wire spiral binding that allows it to easily stay open on your work bench or on your car. Some manuals have plastic front and rear covers to minimize greasy finger prints while handling. Here is an example of printed manual that comes bound with a plastic cover:
On Demand Video Instruction Manuals are not available in any other format. When we make a video detailling a repair or maintenance procedure we do not cover the same information in a PDF or Printed Book. Once you complete the purchase of a video you will be able to view it immediately when you are logged in and on your personal account page (click on My Account). The video(s) will show up under My Video Manuals. The video is NOT downloadable to your computer or mobile device, but you will be able to view it anytime, from anywhere and from any device as long as you have internet access and you are logged into your account at mercedessource.com.
