    Is a PDF Manual available?

    hi,
    every other recent car I have had I located a PDF manual off the internet so I can browse the user guide at leisure. For some reason the VW guides are hard to come by.

    Its much easier to flick through the pdf & see what the odd HUD symbols mean or which buttons control the ACC than by wrestling with the paper manual from the glovebox.

    Has anyone come across an online version of the Arteon manual that can be shared?

    thanks,

    I had seen it before, though not expecting a UK link to work on AUS Vins,

    I tried just now anyway - service unavailable at this time.

    I was able to get the site working today, using a car rego obtained from UK autotrader site.

    After saving a local copy of the web pages I seem to have a somewhat useful manual that I can look over. Now I need to experiment with saving a converted version in pdf/xps & see how that gets managed.

    It seems opening html via Edge & saving to XPS has the desired outcome - a 16meg searchable manual. Now I can finally lookup the Safelock feature that the dashboard keeps telling me to look into when I am getting out of the car.

    thanks

    Safelock is just Vw-speak for deadlocking. Means if you lock the car, people are effectively locked in.

    But the wider issue of a pdf manual.....would be awesome.

    Does every car have it because on my new vehicle specific specifications it says this "Easy open package WITHOUT SAFELOCK"

    I realise it probably pertains to the wave your foot to open boot but not sure about the last bit

    no, not all VW’s have safelock. Easy open package - you’re correct, it refers to the ‘handsfree’ tailgate/boot lid operation

    In case it was misread, I do have the PDF manual now, saved from the web link above. It seems the service is offline sometimes , I managed to hit it when it was working.

    After finding a UK rego online I was able to save the web copy & print to PDF. Now have a 10meg PDF in my dropbox & can peruse it on the bus etc.
    If there are ongoing difficulties in getting access I can try to send it somewhere , if needed.
