Download Center


Applies to: eBahn 3


What is the Download Center?

The Download Center allows users to download executable (.exe) download files. These files contain the same information available on eBahn® Repair Manual software. Note: If you are a current eBahn® vesion 3 user, you can update your repair content by using the "Check for Updates" feature in your existing eBahn® 3.0 product. Open eBahn, and in the top menu, select Help > Check for Updates.

Does it cost anything do download these files?

Currently, all .exe downloads are FREE. A license is required to access the information in the downloadable files. All downloads are available in the Member Center (https://www.bentleypublishers.com/membercenter/).

How do I access the information in the downloadable files?

In order to access the information, a license is required.

How do I get a license?

1. If you have never had an eBahn®license before, you can purchase a license for the vehicle of the content you are downloading by clicking on the Shopping Cart icon next to the download icon.
2. If you have a previous version of eBahn® (v.2.54 and lower), you can upgrade your eBahn® license. See http://www.bentleypublishers.com/ebahn/v3/upgrade.htm for more details.
Note: Upgrades are only available within the same vehicle platform. For example, you can not upgrade a version 2.0 Volkswagen Passat (VW B5 platform) CD for a version 3.0 Audi TT (Audi TT platform), only the new eBahn® 3.0.
3. If you have an eBahn® version 3.0 product, you can update you content by using the "Check for Updates" feature in your existing eBahn® 3.0 product. Open eBahn, and in the top menu, select Help > Check for Updates.

If I download an .exe for a vehicle, do I also have to download the eBahn® Reader (stand-alone)?

No. The .exe downloads for each vehicle will include:

  • eBahn® Reader
  • encrypted eBahn® content

Can I download the eBahn® Reader v.3.0 and use it with content from an old version of eBahn® (v.1.0, v.2.0 or v.2.5)?

No. eBahn® content is only compatible with an eBahn® Reader of the same major version. For instance, you cannot use v.2.0 content in the v.3 reader. If you have older content, you need to upgrade your license. See https://wiki.bentleypublishers.com/x/1gAW for more details. Note: Upgrades are only available within the same vehicle platform. For example, you can not upgrade a version 2.0 Volkswagen Passat (VW B5 platform) CD for a version 3.0 Audi TT (Audi TT platform), only the new eBahn® 3.0.

Can I download an .exe, burn it to a CD-ROM, then give it to a friend?

Yes. However, in order to view the content, your friend will need an eBahn® License for that vehicle.

If I already have eBahn® 3.0 for a particular vehicle, should I download one of these files to get updated content?

To update content, use the "Check for Updates" feature in your existing eBahn® 3.0 product. Open eBahn, and in the top menu, select Help > Check for Updates. You will be shown on-screen what updates are currently available for download. If your support time has expired, you can purchase a support extension on the pages below:

Audi Support Extension: http://www.bentleypublishers.com/isbn/AMSE/index.html
VW Support Extension: http://www.bentleypublishers.com/isbn/VMSE/index.html
