Re: Bent sills at Jack point and over sills

The jacking points underneath are really for a two poster, tried jacking one side on those before and the car kept trying to slide off I now use some good bits of wood between the sill and the jack point, and then jack on the jack point ....if you know what i mean.Just have to drive up on some bricks to get the height first.Either way i am very carefull not to let anyone else jack my car.

I tend to use the crappy scissor jack to get some height before doing something similar to Alfie GTV with wood blocks and a trolley jack, then obviously get some axle stands in there for safety if I am venturing under the thing.

Re: Bent sills at Jack point and over sills

There are some sturdy-ish lugs on the underside of the front footwells not far back from the subframe which I take to be location points used in the assembly. I've found I can jack ok on these with a nice piece of wood. Gingerly I've lifted it via teh subframe mounts on occasion but those weird vestigial tin pressings runnning back from the subframe are flimsy. Anyone know what the purpose is of them?? Look useless structurally to me. Perhaps they're speed bump skids!! Facing the wrong way, uh??
