Part lists and repair manuals for Nikon lenses - where to find?

Stefan Gruenendahl , Jan 20, 2012; 07:00 p.m.

Where would one find part lists (with drawings) and repair/service manuals for Nikon lenses? Occasionally I have seen a parts diagram posted here, but not for the lenses I have. Has anybody come across a source that they would be willing to share?
Specifically, I'm looking for these documents for the older f/2.8 AF zooms (20-35, 35-70, 80-200) and for a few manual focus Nikkors (35/1.4, 85/1.4 etc.).

Thanks a lot for the replies. I had run into the nodevice.com 'pay for download' site, but not the other one. Are there any free versions?

which 80-200 do you have? af-d or af-s?

My 80-200 is the single ring (push-pull) AF (no D, no S).

I just wanted to say that I have used the nodevice.com service when looking for information I think the manufacturers should provide to the buyers of their products. It's not a scam and they have what they say they have and you can download it all if you pay a few dollars.

So the downloaded docs were complete and readable - not some fuzzy photocopy? No sudden 'outages' when trying to download the documents? Their different levels of 'membership' make it look a bit suspect.

I have found a lot of service manuals for Nikon Lenses at tradebit.com, they are all original so no copies from books and they all include the parts list catalog.Besides service manuals for Nikon, you can also find many other brands there like Sony and Panasonic.
