On the cover of the new Helm 1999-2002 Ody Service Manual is a bright green sticker with the phrase:
<center>"Discard Upon Receipt of SECOND EDITION Service Manual".</center>
What does this mean?

That is news to me. I did not have such a sticker on my 2002 manual.

I just sent an e-mail to Helm, we'll see what they say.

That can't be good... Mine didn't have the sticker either.

No e-mail back from Helm, so I phoned their customer service department.

The answer I got is that if there is a second edition, it would be sent free of charge. The rep didn't know if there would be a second edition or not.

Checking the front of this copy of the manual it says, "First Edition 8/2001."

Has anyone ever received a second edition free of charge? Was there a second edition of previous year manuals?

Regards,

Once upon a time and long, long ago I purchased a '99 edition. It's marked "First Edition 10/98." I purchased it from Helm around Jan 99 or so. The last I heard from 'em is when it arrived at my doorstep. Also, the '99 edition says nothing about Helm; it says copyright Honda Motor Company and all that, though I do remember getting it from Helm.

First edition here too. All 2216 pages of it! No, they don't say Helm anywhere on them. All Honda.

Honda here too.

I used the term "Helm manual" since I see it on this forum in many threads in reference to the "Honda Odyssey 1999-200x Service Manual."

Here's the e-mail reply from Helm about the "Honda Odyssey 1999-2002 Service Manual" with the green and black sticker reading "Discard Upon Receipt of SECOND EDITION Service Manual:"
<BLOCKQUOTE>"This means you have received a preliminary version and is incomplete, as soon as the manual is updated you will receive the finished version automatically."</BLOCKQUOTE>

I assume so, since they didn't mention anything about sending it back. Maybe they will send a shipping container, but they may not bother since the document would be outdated.

I guess we'll have to wait to see if there is a 2nd edition and if they want back the 1st.
