How Do I Get the Full 2003 Forester XS Owner's Manual PDF?

I'm trying to download the 2003 Forester XS Owner's Manual in PDF format through the My.Subaru site.

The only file the site links to is a "Table of Contents" PDF here:

https://my.subaru.com/vehicle/Manual...rester_toc.pdf

and I am supposed to be able to open that and click on the section titles inside to get the additional PDF files (there are 14 chapters, so I assume there must be at least 14 more files).

Problem is that although the section titles change the mouse pointer and highlight as if they are links, clicking on them does nothing.

I e-mailed Subaru support and they said to turn off any pop-up blocker. I replied back saying I had already made sure the pop-up blocker in IE was turned off and had also tried using Firefox. I further explained that I tried using the file locally in the Acrobat Reader and Foxit Reader and even went as far as opening the file in a PDF editor and cannot find any URL's in the links. I then said that all I needed was the additional URL's or even just the additional PDF file names. Over one week later and they still haven't responded back...

So can anyone here tell me the URL's or file names for the additional manual sections?

Thanks!

Thanks very much MoxoM, but unfortunately that site just gives me the exact same file - Table of Contents only.

At least this confirms I'm not just crazy. I tried downloading some other manuals and some work and some do not.

For example, the 2004 manual has no links at all. The 2002 manual does have working links, but when I try using the same file names for the 2003 manual they don't work.

Anyone know where I can get the full 2003 manual or what the proper additional file names are?

Oops, never mind...

I found the links further down in the 03 and 04 manual.

Now I have the necessary file names.

Thanks again!
