The book calls for every 32k. I just read the procedure in the FSM and I wouldn't want to do it without it. Not really sure I'd want to do it with the FSM either, but darn if I'll own and use a vehicle without having a shop manual for it. Why do you not want to download a shop manual?
Edit: Congrats on making your first post almost 3 years later :!:

Read this item all the way through, and then let us know what you do.

I'd like the download without all the crap that seems to want to come with it
...taskbars and whatever else they try to pedal.
I just want to download the manual into my documents

The reason I pointed you to that discussion, was because it had points raised as to whether you should do it, as well as the pages from the manual. If you do not like it, then ignore it. No need to vent your frustration that I am unable to provide you with your precise item, and you could always spend some money and buy an official copy.
