A word of warning - GTV Jack
Working on the GTV yesterday, I used the supplied "800kg" wheel change jack to raise and lower the GTV onto the axle stands. Now, because the jack doesn't go high enough and my trolly jack is too tall to fit under the sills i can only use the axle stands at the first height which is not high enough to get the wheel on or off.
Finished what i was doing so i started to raise the car on the jack again to get the wheel back on. Just as i reached the right height BANG! the car dropped (hard) onto the axle stand and the jack is now twisted. This was despite being used on firm ground with the car as level as possible.
what had happened was the gear arrangement in the jacks frame had skipped a tooth.
No one hurt but had to change my trousers. So, chuck the jack in the bin, buy a better one or ditch it with the spare wheel and keep a trolly jack in the garage and a can of tyre foam in the boot.
