Ebay would really be the way to go....the Helm/Pontiac manuals are about $105 new you can usually get 92 (the 3 book set) for anywhere from $50-70

Yes, those will have everything the FSM has.. but what would be easier, proping up a notebook on the fender, or a 10lb book? And if you don't have a notebook, imagine proping up a full size desktop on the fender. Trust me, an FSM is much easier to handle than a CD. You can buy it, but I would suggest an FSM, just because they are easier to handle.

Just a side note [since I never read this post before], Haynes and Chiltons are only good for mechanical stuff. My Haynes has saved me, my front Cylinder Head was held on by one thing, and I couldn't figure out what, and my FSM said nothing of it. Pulled out my Haynes, turned out it was a Compressor Bracket, with a T-50 bolt. It'* good to have both, IMO. My Hayes is worthless for electrical. I wouldn't even bother touching it for electrical stuff.

In this order:

1. Factory manuals from www.helminc.com
2. Chilton'* #28200
3. Haynes
4. Clymer

Haynes is junk compared to Chilton'*, but it does have some alternate methods for some procedures. Think of it as a supplement to Chilton'*.

Your leaky trunk is either a taillight, antenna, or the black rubber seal at the bottom of the rear window. Apply a small thin bead of silicone caulking between the glass and rubber, extending up the sides about 6".
