    Well, after many hours following various forum links /searches that lead nowhere, including Russek,Haynes,Fiat,Talbot,Ebay,Amazon,blah blah blah I am of the opinion that a manual for the above van simply does not exist!!!!!
    If there is anyone out there who can tell me I'm wrong I'd love to hear from you :thumb:

    Are you looking for a Workshop manual or van handbook?

    I have spent many hours searching for the same:Sad: Fiat don't as far as I know do one even good old Haynes don't I have drawings of all the bits but no words of 'how to do' but the forums are great for advise. Especially this one.

    Hi,thanks for your responses. The type 244 is a facelift version of my van & does not cover my engine.
    I've already tried the fiat forum with no luck,in fact I've just registered properly on the site in case I would get more search options, but it's just made it more apparent that even a few of their forum users with my van model cannot locate a manual. Most of them don't even seem familiar with the earlier model differences. In fairness to them it seems to be a mainly car based forum so I should'nt expect too much.
    Thanks again.

    Very interesting as I have just purchased the item advertised on this thread:

    http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/peugeot/71267-peter-russek-2-5-2-8-manual.html

    It is yet to arrive so I'll be able to shed more light on what's in there when it does. Don't forget the Fiat Ducato is also a Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Jumper. Although it is originally a Fiat, perhaps there are manuals titled under the other marque names.
