    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default Don't suppose anyone's got...

    Currently got my car in bits changing all the hoses to silicon ones and suddenly realised I can't get to the small one under the turbo unless I go underneath the car. I have a trolley jack, but no axle stands or ramps and there's no way I'm going that far under the car without it being properly supported.

    On the real off chance I don't suppose there's anyone in my area or that may be passing through this way that happens to have a set of ramps or axle stands they could possibly lend me (and bring round) is there?

    I know it's a damn cheek and quite expect there to be no one around who can help, but as I say, on the off chance and if you don't ask, you don't get.

    Have plenty of tea/coffee on tap and cold beer for anyone that fancies popping round to help regardless of whether you've got ramps or axle stands available, I'm not working currently (garden leave as I'm about to be made redundant lol) so making the most of the time off to do work on the car so any company welcome.

    Heh, thanks for the offer, I was just hoping to get this done today that's all. If I have to put the car back together, then I'll just go out and buy some myself. It's just I've got it in bits and the cooling system drained at the moment and was hoping not to have to do it all twice.

    Heh, thanks you guys, really appreciate the offer, but same thing really, if I end up having to put it all back together, I'll just go buy a set. As I said in my original post, it was a long shot

    Do the rest of the hoses, especially the coolant ones, and you can do the short turbo hose later, as it doesn't contain coolant you won't need to drain the system again for it.

    I have ramps and axle stands, but it's most likely going to cost more in fuel than a set of axle stands locally would cost, if we were nearer or coming your way I'd be happy to help - the only day we're not busy this week is Thursday, though.
