These might already be known to most here, but I wanted to create a indexable thread for Google so in the future if someone is looking for these they can find them easier.


So when I was looking for workshop manuals and wiring diagrams for my JZX81 I stumbled across every Japanese scanned workshop manual and wiring diagram for almost every model of X chassis.  This includes the pre-X Mark II Coronas (RT6X) all the way through the JZX100.


Basically if you search on Yahoo Japan Auctions for "jzx配線図" which is "JZX Wiring Diagrams" you will see a bunch of results for CD-ROMS marked with "CD".  These apparently are scans of all of these workshop and wiring manuals being sold for around $30 a volume.  I don't know if it's Toyota who made these, a authorized reseller of Toyota publications or if they're all ripped without permission.  Either way, doing a Google PDF file type search and some Kanji I found these CDs on Ciscokids's server.  I understand that these models were never designed for export, and getting the documents legitimately outside of Japan is very difficult and sometimes impossible.  I've contacted Toyota US about getting Japanese market repair and wiring manuals added to TIS due to the increase of 25 year imports in the US lately.  They basically told me no and to call Toyota in Japan and ask them.  I do believe in right-to-repair and sharing these documents for old out of production cars should not have a big impact financially on the company.  But, if you're from Toyota reading this and want these taken down please contact me ASAP.




Get the manuals


They have tons of good stuff here: http://www.ciscokids.com.au/technical/  


Buried here are the manuals in question: http://www.ciscokids...panese manuals/


Now you can pull them all down from there or look at them directly on my Google Drive here: https://drive.google...-Id?usp=sharing


I also backed the zip files up on AWS S3 here: 

VOL 2 = T60->X10 1970-1972  https://s3.amazonaws...nuals/VOL 2.zip

VOL 4 = X10->X30 1976-1977 https://s3.amazonaws...nuals/VOL 4.zip

VOL 6 = X60->X70 1980-1984 https://s3.amazonaws...nuals/VOL 6.zip

VOL 7 = X70->X80 1985-1991 https://s3.amazonaws...nuals/VOL 7.zip

VOL 8 = X80->X90 1992-1995 https://s3.amazonaws...nuals/VOL 8.zip

VOL 9 = X90+X70 Wagon 1995-1997 https://s3.amazonaws...nuals/VOL 9.zip

VOL 10 = X100+V20 Wagon 1998-2001 https://s3.amazonaws.com/jzxp/RepairManuals/VOL+10.zip 



How to Navigate the manuals


So inside of each VOL folder you will see ichiran.pdf file.  This is the main index PDF which tells you what models the volume covers.  The first page of the index looks like this:




From left to right: 

1) Blue is the Description Manual

2) Orange is the Repair Manual

3) Red is the Wiring Manual

4) Green is the Owner's Manual


To navigate the PDFs you have a couple options:

1) Download the volume(s) you want and extract them on your computer then use Adobe Reader to view.  This will allow the hyperlinks built into the ichiran.pdf document to function and made navigating easier.  

2) If you're using the Google drive link (probably on your phone) then it's a little harder.  On the far left column is a ID number, that numbers sometimes corresponds the folder names in the VOL directory.  Otherwise you pretty much have to dissect the filename and start manually opening stuff to figure out what is what.  


File name breaks down as follows <sequential number>_<manual type>_<chassis>_<covered years>

Manual types are, O = Owners, W=Wiring, R=Repair, I=Information (shows facts about the model, chassis, major components, new features, etc)


Example: 128_W_E-GX70G_1988_9 = Wiring Diagram for Sept/1988 GX70 Wagon


Reading the manuals


OK so now is the hard part, how the hell do you read these if you don't speak Japanese?  Well I use Google Translate on my phone mostly.  Like most Japanese technical writings they use a lot of english for their acronyms, so along with the diagrams/drawings this will help you narrow down your search and give you a good idea of what a particular document's topic is.  Since these are image scans and haven't been OCR'd, built in translation plugins might not work.  So for now I open up Google Translate on my iPhone/Android and use it's live photo translation function.  The live version is a little sketchy sometimes so use the take a photo button at the bottom and highlight with your finger what you need a more precise translation on.

1.  You'd need someone from Toyota in Japan to send you a cease and desist.

2.  They don't give a shit.

thanks brian, not only for collecting and posting this stuff but also for keeping the doors open here.


My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.
