    Jacking Points!

    Hiya guys, just wondering if one of you knowledgable lot can help me out here.
    I need to take the wheels of but i'm scratching my head a bit as to where the best place to jack the car up is on each corner?

    Dont want to risk causing any damage, so if ya can shed some light on this for me, cheers!

    I never use the std jacking points, for the front I jack where the rear inner bolt is that holds the front lower arm. The rear I think I use where the trailing arm fixed to the chassis I`d have to look to be sure Its a automatic thing.

    The standard jack goes on a lip under the car at either end. Or if your using a troley jack any solid part of the chasis is good

    When using the standard jack, place a piece of rag between the jack and sill. It's easy to damage the underseal.
