Default 2000+ Bonneville Book

Is there any Haynes (or something like it) book for 2000+ Bonnevilles?
I've looked everywhere and I can only find general ones.
And I mean like "Buick, Pontiac, Cadillac, Chevolet; 1987-2002" general.
The guy told me that it would be in there.
And by chance, would you guess it...it'* not.
Anyone?

If our cars were more popular they would likely make a manual more targeted to our vehicles, IMHO your best bet is to spend the $130 and get the factory authorized shop manual. They pay for themselves the first time you use it. Ive ordered many manuals from them. That "general" hanyes manual may be adequate for simple things like changing of a ps pump, the real shop manual includes things like wiring diagrams and flow charts for diagnosis.

or you can buy a manual used from a member or on ebay. It only took about 1 week of waiting around for one to pop up on Ebay for my model year. This worked for me, not sure about your year. By the way, this post is ruining my "123" post count. : (

The Helm manual is probably the best as it is the factory service manual that the dealers use. Each wire color, nut, bolt, connector etc is in that book. All the diagnostics from the factory.

There are other Chiltons that I'm aware of made for mechanics that cover the basics of say 5 or so years. Not sure where you would purchase them though. Maybe check online with Chiltons.

I hear Haynes is no good. But they do offer a Chiltons on CD-ROM.

Might not hurt to give them a little ringaling. If you have a competent auto parts store nearby they might be able to order it for you too.
