Re-write the quality manual

"We currently have 2008 and at the very beginning stage of 2015, I know it says you don't need a quality manual, but I don't know how else document anything for our audit in February and do I need to re-write the full manual to align with the 2015 standard as the definitions are different, some the same but in different sections."

If you want to keep a quality manual and if your present one is organized according to ISO 9001:2008, I think it is advisable to re-write the manual. But instead of re-writing the manual aligned with ISO 9001:2015 I would prefer to use an approach based on your own organization (a document that explains: We are XYZ company; we are producing this and providing these services; we apply a quality management system to these processes; we don’t apply these clauses of the standard for these reasons; these are our processes and their interactions; and, this is the internal and external context in which we operate.)
The following material will provide you information about approach based on your o wn organization to writing a quality manual:
