Workshop Manual for WJ (?WG)
Hi all,

good to find a site that demonstrates some enthusiasm for the marque.:)

I'm having difficulty finding a workshop manual, I like to do my own maitenance and repairs, as my 2002 Grand Cherokee "WJ" (or should that be "WG" as its probably classed as an export model?) has the tiny little, compared to U.S. versions, 2.7 litre 5 cylinder diesel engine. The Haynes manuals that are obtainable in U.K. are described as ".... intended for petrol engine cars (except where diesel is specifically mentioned) built to US specifications....".

Has anybody found a manual that covers the diesel engined version, or is the 'Haynes for U.S. built petrol-engined version' O.K. for everything except the engine work?

Any advice you can offer would be most appreciated.

Best Regards

Tony Norton

Try this site for the official service manual:

I tried to go to the United Kingdom, but couldn't select a diesel engine choice. Try it with inserting your VIN in the provided area.

Thanks for the tip Jim.

I tried this and, like you, couldn't find a reference to the diesel engined version, and the site doesn't accept my VIN number, I guess because mine was a 'built in Austria' export model.

I'll just have to keep hunting.

Hi Don,

managed to get a manual at: -

" hash=item27b4abc374".

It is a bit disjointed and I found it best to combine all the 'pdf' files in each section into one bloody great big one (105MB for the '00 version) and then use search to find what you want.

One snag, the '00 version doesn't cover the 2.7 litre Merc diesel engine, but it does do the earlier 3.1 litre in considerable detail.

The '02 version does, however cover the 2.7 litre engine, but only in diagnostic terms, not maintenance, whilst the '03, '04, '05 does cover maintenance (including the '02 version) but not engine rebuilds, and the combined pdf is even bigger (213MB).

I found the '00 version very useful when changing the front disks (sorry - "rotors", said with a Yankee accent!?). All the chassis maintenance info you might require can be found therein.

Re: Workshop Manual for WJ (?WG)
Might be long shot, but would it be worth searching for a mercedes CRD manual instead, rather than looking for 'diesel Jeep' etc.

Just a thought:o
