    Help with jack points!

    Hi guys. I just got a puncture on my way into work (front left) and I need to change my wheel. I need to jack the car up and I am a bit paranoid about getting the jack in the right place and I haven't got the manual with me.

    Sounds a bit lame, but better to be safe then sorry! Can anyone tell me where I need to be aiming!? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks,

    Matt

    On mine, the jack goes under the car!

    No seriously, from what i remember, you put the jack where the little indents are on the under sills under the doors. Dont take this as gospel but it works for me.

    Yeah, when I had a look underneath the car it seemed pretty clear where it should go. All sorted now, thanks for the help.

    Ive got the nice space saver spare on, its an 18"! My standard ones are only 17" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
