They are very hard to find. Generally if a link is posted publicly Ford does a good job at tracking the source and having them removed.

Depending on how technical you need a Haynes or Chilton manual may serve your purposes better. Actual Ford manuals can be obtained from Helm and are the only exact Ford manuals, but are not cheap well worth the money IMO.

Also you should be aware of intellectual property rights and copyright laws as any .pdf will infringe upon them.

Source for shop manual

In the Uk, there's plenty on sale on eBay that don't infringe copywrite apparently. You can get the Ford mechanics workshop CD for just a few GBP.

Worked at a Nissan dealer for a long time, and we always had manuals. Then they started putting all the manuals on CDs (still had the paper manuals also). Finally they discontinued everything, and everything is on-line now.

Frankly......I hate the electronic manuals. They are very difficult to use when trouble-shooting. Takes 3X as long to find anything.....and you end up having to print out multiple pages anyway. For some things the electronic manual saves a little time, and you can print out things for the owners.

But.....since you can get a Ford factory manual off E-Bay for cheap, I'd recommend that, instead of the CD/DVD versions (if you can even find one).

Does Lorie and Jeff still exist? I can't find them on ebay. I need a shop manual for a 2007 Ford Escape I just bought.

Search for Helms manuals Ford Focus. See if that turns anything up. Helms is the authorized factory service manual. You don't want to get one from them though because they charge like $160 for each. You should be able to find both on Ebay for about $50. One for electrical, and one for everything else.
