Bentley is a publisher of professional-grade car service manuals, DIY guides and automotive books.
Automobile brands covered by Bentley manuals, include:
In addition to their popular service manuals, Bentley also publishes many "bibles" for vehicles, such as the Jeep Owner's Bible, the Alfa Romeo Owner's Bible and the best-selling Ford F-Series Pickup Owner's Bible, among many others.
Bentley Publishers was founded in 1950 by Robert Bentley as an importer of fiction and philosophy books, however, in the 1960s the focus of Bentley Publishers became increasingly involved with automotive-related publishing.
Bentley publishes two types of repair manuals: Official Factory Repair Manuals and Service Manuals.
The Official Factory Repair Manuals contain repair information that the dealer-trained service technicians use everyday. The information is developed by the manufacturer primarily for the professionally-trained technician.
The Official Factory Repair Manuals usually contain more information than the service manuals and assume a high level of automotive experience and skill. As such, these manuals are intended for professional mechanics or the advanced-level do-it-yourself owner.
Bentley Service Manuals are authored by automotive editors at Bentley's automotive research center. Starting with a clean sheet of paper and the official factory service, repair, and training information, automotive editors set out to create a condensed authoritative service manual aimed at both the do-it-yourself owner and professional technician.
Service manuals often include additional troubleshooting tips, routine maintenance hints, and model-specific repair information not found in the Official Factory Repair Manual.
In addition to service manuals and owner's bibles, Bentley also publishes Enthusiast Companions, Brand-Specific Reference books, and many other titles, both printed and on DVD-ROM.
Bentley repair manuals and related books are considered the best in the industry, and The Motor Bookstore is proud to be an Authorized Bentley Service Manual Distributor.
Bentley manuals are some of the most comprehensive do-it-yourself guides available, and many of them are, in fact, official repair and service manuals for the European vehicles they cover.
The average Bentley manual contains close to one thousand pages along with thousands of detailed and close-up photos, diagrams and exploded views. In addition to all that information, Bentley manuals include some of the most detailed wiring diagrams available.
All of these features put Bentley repair manuals a cut above the rest with DIY mechanics who depend on a well written guide to successfully complete their projects.
The Motor Bookstore stocks the complete line of Bentley manuals, so when it comes time to maintain, service, or repair your BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, or Mercedes-Benz, make us your first choice for a Bentley manual.
