Make sure you've refreshed the page. I moved the links this morning to another path to accommodate the remaining 13 VW documents / manuals for the 2016.

Anyhow, I just tested both of the links and they're working.

Thanks.

Cheers :)

Love it!

Also epub to pdf is a quick google search for anyone not wanting epub files. :)

But thanks again to OP!
Thanks BluePanda and yes, there's a few online sites that will do the conversion. One note though, some of those tools strip the table of contents / index from the file which means that clicking on the blue text (hyperlinks) within the document won't take you to the subsequent page within the manual you're viewing. So long as you're ok with that, by all means. Let me know if you find one that preserves the formatting and such. Anyhow, I'll try to knock out the remaining PDF documents over the next few days for those who don't mind waiting :)

Fantastic! Thank you for posting these.
You're welcome, my pleasure.

Thanks for this. Didn't realize that I have 3 years of complimentary towing for any mechanical, collision or flat. Good to know, thought that was a feature of Car-Net.
Sure thing :)

Good point Cyket -- I don't think the hyperlinks do work (at least not in foxit).

I'm just happy to have the manual outside of my car -- so I didn't even manage to worry about the format! :)

Thanks again. It's great to have it on hand when reading posts here and or just thinking about changes (mods) to the car while maintaining the copy IN the car.

BluePanda, that's been my experience with the online converters, not entirely sure why it operates like that. At any rate, I've found 2 great open source tools that have the ability to perform the document conversion. First one is called Calibre. The second is Sigil. This is what I used to convert the Owners manual to PDF from EPUB.

And agreed, it's great having a version that can be viewed on multiple electronic devices.

You're welcome! To answer your question in regards to the EPUB documents, there's only 5 that come that way natively. Owners Manual, Infotainment system, Performance Monitor, Warranty and Maintenance and lastly the Think Blue Trainer. All 5 of those documents are in an archive thats password protected on the VW iOwn application. The "EPUB" archive files were built and formatted specifically for the iPad application. Once you view any of the aforementioned documents within the iOwn app, they're unpacked and loaded into memory (and on disk :screwy:) using the archive password. Having said all of that, some fixing was needed in order to convert the documents back to a native EPUB format structure. I'm assuming VW did this because they never had any intention of making any of these 5 manuals available for download - I still don't understand the reason behind that, perhaps so that they could charge for the manuals in the future? /shrug.

Anyhow, it's possible to go from PDF to EPUB but would take some work to build the TOC / Indexes. If there's enough interest, I'll consider doing this for the native PDF documents.

Thanks!
