You CAN by the printed manuals, used on ebay...
The chassis service manual
The engine manual
The A/C manual
The electrical troubleshooting manual
The maintenance guide
The owner's manual
All the but the owners manual will set you back at least 40$. The CD's price isn't that bad, especially when you consider the number of engine manuals on the CD and the number of electrical troubleshooting books covered.
Too bad the CDs aren't as good as the paper manuals they replace (for ease of use). The actual info on the CD is identical.
