But, as luck would have it my wife is Japanese and translates Japanese to English for a living, so i was wondering if anyone has a pdf of the Japanese workshop manual? i may just be able to sweet talk and back rub my way to a translated copy!
If not i will pick one up while im over there visiting family next, but would be good to start on it asap
At the risk of sounding selfish, im driving the diesel so im more interested in getting the manual for the rest of the van as translating the whole thing is likely to take her a fair bit of time, so a free translation is a big ask even from her husband.
Having said that I can ask the missus to look at small bits if you have anything your particularly stuck on, and have the original document
she is employed as a freelancer through an agency in Japan and usually paid a certain amount per word, something like 4p i think. She may be willing to translate anything if paid her standard rate, which is likely to be far lower than the cost of going through a company. Emphasis on the "may" though, as i haven't actually asked her
I'd be interested in an english version of the wiring diagram for the Q-spec diesel Granvia (KCH10W-GFSQT) - obviously mostly just a diagram with only the component key needing to be translated.
Perhaps worth making contact with JPNZ to do some sort of deal?
Thanks for the offer of the V6 manual, mines a diesel but im sure its worth adding as a sticky alongside the diesel one
The owners handbook i'll leave since an english copy exists, ive seen the JPNZ one for sale but don't really want to pay for what im guessing is pretty basic info?
The Japanese workshop manual seems pretty common on the jap equivalents to eBay if you search in the lingo, so im sure i will be able to get a hard copy when im over in Japan next, probably early 2018, i just thought someone may have a dusty pdf of it kicking about to get the ball rolling a few months earlier
