    If you look under the side sills you will see the jacking points where the boot jack fits.

    Just a thought, use some axel stands once you've jacked it up. dont go crawling under the car when its just supported by a jack. BE SAFE!

    It's all in the manual. Don't be under the car supported only by a jack, especially the one provided for wheel changing, especially if you aren't 'too sure mechanically'.

    Get to Halfords. They have a lifting set for £39.99. It could save your life.
