    All I found online was owners manuals that helps with traditional maintenance of basic components.
    I'd like to find a repair manual with step by step instructions on, for example, how to replace a CV axle.
    Thank you!

    That’s the most authoritative source for owners in North America. A few months ago, I posted a PriusChat Wiki article, “Toyota Service Information and Where To Find It,” with some alternatives, such as the ChiltonLibrary service, which many people can use at no charge.

    It would be nice if the auto manufacturers would publish a basic maintenance compendium, freely available. I suppose it's tricky deciding where to set the cut-off.

    Someone very assiduously added that link today to about a dozen and a half threads about the service manual. Makes me imagine he gets something when we click there. Or we get something when we click there.

    Actually it was added to 3 or 4 links only. I was just looking for free Corolla 10th gen factory service manuals everywhere on the web. This website was the only one that I found which has numerous useful manuals. Therefore, I think it may be useful to share it since I was also having difficulty finding free factory service manual on Priuschat.

    Yes, indeed. it is definitely not comprehensive. however, it has all the cars that I am interested in which includes Prius (2nd, and 3rd gen) and Corolla (10th gen).
