Default Disappearing manuals

So, here's an interesting one:
MB has long maintained a website where one can download PDF versions of various Sprinter manuals:

https://www.mbvans.com/sprinter/owne.../owner-manuals

Starting in MY2017, they stopped including the maintenance and warranty books--offering only the Operators' Manuals. However, for previous model years, those manuals remained available. Recently, however, these older manuals mysteriously disappeared. The links are still there, but all of a sudden, they all point to the Operators' Manual for the respective years! This means that a lot of important information about warranty coverage and recommended service intervals is now unavailable.

I will leave it to the conspiracy theorists to suggest what is going on here.

I do, however, suggest that anybody who has downloaded the missing PDFs hold on to them. Perhaps we can organize a recovery operation aimed at keeping these manuals available.

The Internet Archive will hold them for us :-)

The 2010-2015 maintenance manuals and owner manuals are all there for download in PDF format.
